Description: (click show to see it)
What are you snickering about? Gateway isn't the penny-ante patsy
people say it is. They can make a computer just as good as anybody. Or
most companies. Or some companies. Anyway, they're not the worst. And
the Gateway GT5628 Desktop Computer is as non-worst a computer as you'll find on the market today. Probably.
Still giggling? Well, the Intel® Core™ 2 Q6600 2.4GHz
Quad Core Processor ought to shut you up. You're probably running some
wheezing, clanking old dual-core jalopy, right? Well, this here's a
souped-up Quad Core hot rod. That's right - four, count 'em, four
cores! We haven't seen performance this powerful since Denzel played
Malcolm X. It can all be yours, assuming you can find apps that are
optimized for four cores. There aren't many. But you'll thank us in
2013, if your Gateway GT5628 is stll running by then.
What's that? Still not convinced that Gateway can bring the computing pain? What about the jaw-dropping NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT video card? Huh? Huh? What about the 3GB of RAM, and that massive 500GB hard drive?
Yeah, thought so. Drop the negativity and the skepticism and face the fact that the Gateway GT5628
exceeds Windows Vista requirements. Now, I'm sure you'll want to take
back some of the nasty things you've said about - what's that? Oh, you
hate Vista, too, huh? There's just no pleasing some people.

You think that briefcase is
gonna protect you from the fury of the elements? You think you can keep
the driving rain at bay with your cute little hats? The rain laughs at
your hoodie. The wind sneers at your umbrella. They can't wait to tell
their friends. Your only hope is to prostrate yourself before their
might and hope there's something left of you when the sun comes out.

Peter Wellington, you shouldn't have. You already give us insight and wit by the barrel every couple of weeks in your <a href="http://wine.woot.com/Blog/BlogEntry.aspx?BlogEntryId=4091">Random Ramblings of a Weary Winemaker</a>
column, bringing wine.wooters unprecedented glimpses into the
enological lifestyle. You don't even ask any payment in return. Under
your Wine.Woot username SonomaBouliste, you've been one of the most
valuable participants on our message boards. And now you want to offer
two of your choicest wines at a scandalously low price like this? We
couldn't possibly accept.
Just stop and think about what
you're doing for a minute. Why on Earth would you let your Wellington
Vineyards 2002 Reserve Syrah go for such a pittance? You've said
yourself that this is one of the finest Syrahs you've made since you
started making the varietal in 1993. We're talking about a Sonoma
Valley Syrah that scored 90 points from Wine Enthusiast and
won the Gold medal at the 2006 Sonoma County Harvest Fair. You know
better than anybody that it wasn't easy to produce such fleshy, intense
flavor. How many meticulous tastings and trial blends did you try? How
much thought did you put into how to firm up and focus this Syrah
before you decided to add a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon? And now you
just want to peddle it cheap on Wine.Woot like so much common rotgut?
There's such a thing as being too generous, you know.
take the Wellington Vineyards 2004 Victory Reserve. You don't just slap
the "Reserve" label on any old bottle of whatever. 2004 marked only the
fifth time in 16 years that you bottled Victory. It took a lot of
tasting and mixing and re-tasting and re-mixing to arrive at this
exquisitely proportioned blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and
Cabernet Franc. Take a whiff of that basketful of aromas: black cherry,
rustic cedar, vibrant vanilla, perfumy violets, spicy pepper. Luxuriate
in that smooth, supple entry and rich palate, that firm finish, the
unlimited potential of this wine after a bit of cellaring...It's only
going to get...more...delicious...
Er, on second thought, you
know, who are we to tell you what to do? You're a grown man. If you
want to clear some space on your top shelf, we're not going to stand in
your way. If you really insist on offering this cleanup-hitting
two-pack at a utility infielder price, we'll go along with it. As a
favor to you, you understand. Just this once. Hey, have you seen our
