where the crap is sbemail203?!?!? I'm getting impacient, here! Although, it did win a 3/5. The Compé, eh? Not bad. I half expected him to get something like the Floaty 586, a floating computer.

For some reason I'm getting the feeling the Compe will be a Mary Sue-type computer. For instance, I can easily see Homestar trying to pour Mountain Dew on it and it defending itself, maybe hoisting Homestar up by his ankle or something. Now I'm very curious to see which paper will reign supreme. I'm guessing it'll be the Old Paper, but the Brothers Chaps may throw a curveball.

Overall, 5/5.

Because everything is 500% better with an accented e.

Pretty good toon. I thought him reading the whole thing for the Roomy was incredibly drag-laiden (?), but other than that, prooty good. I really liked them poking fun at their singy-type toons, and the error was great as well.

3.9/5!

I liked the regular Compy better. There's no way the "Compe" will last more than 30 emails (considering how everybody thinks that the Windows Vista is junk). But then again, I may be wrong.

But then again, I could be right...

Hey! Don't trash talk the Vista! Mine worked great...until it slowed down...and that one time I had to copy all my old user files into a new one and delete the old one because my user settings were getting erased every time...and it got super-slow...and that time when-forget it. Vista sucks.

I thought it was very good 4/5.

Anyways there seems to be a sect of people here that after sbemail 201 said he's not gonna keep making sbemails. Then after the next one, and the next one, ect. My question is what will it take them to believe that they are making sbemails again?

I liked it. :3

I also like Strong Sad trying to sing. "It's fina-l-ly here!"

And, yay! No more Corpy!(the noise that the Corpy's keyboard made when typing got on my nerves..) Pretty awesome short. 5/5, as always.

That was cool, and the new computer is quite nice, but I thought he was going to take one of 'dose laptops of varying colors.
Also, If the Zappy had a DOS like system, I'm pretty sure the Compe' will have a DOS like system.
5/5

I think I have fallen for this toon.
:sb: :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb: / :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb:

I like the Compé but I'm not a big fan of the bumps around the right corner.

This was less of a toon and more of a Sbemail Teaser. 3.5/5

I laughed at the fake-grant error screen.

lets see if this makes sense. Its kinda like it strangled me then let me breathe and gave me some hot chocolate? I guess what i'm trying to say is it didn't really impress me for about the first seven seconds. Then i liked it. Make sense? No?

All I can say is it's about time.
But I loved this toon nonetheless. :sb:
5/5 just for Strong Sad, meatloaf, and the fake error messages...and of course the new Compé.

I really didn't like it, I gave it a 2/5 at best, it just seemed slow and not funny to me I'm sorry to say.

I think they will be doing less sbemails from now on. I think it is really a lot of pressure to come up with an email every week. Besides the site was becoming way to centered around SB-Emails.

Don't get me wrong I am happy to see them back. But I like to see a bunch of origional toons and some emails mixed in.

Will Mike ever get the mouth-synchronization of the word 'of' right so it's like "uv" instead of "oav"?
Eh, ignoring what I said, I can say that this is really a short worth watching between sbemails 202 and 203 (if 203 ever comes out sometime this month, that is). And only time will tell what features the new computer includes.

that was pretty great, although i was hoping for a much more hilarious choice. it'd be kind of sweet if they ran with a 'strong bad needs a new computer' gag for a few toons, kind of like DNA Evidence, yeah? if not, then it's going to take some harrd convincing to get me into the compe.

hoping homestar in fact does try to pour mountain dwah on the compe, i give it 3/5

I'm so happy :sb: stopped :sad: singing before it got out of hand. That sort of music is reserved for holidays ONLY.

Can't wait for the new sbemails, though I almost wish they left his final choice up to speculation.

It was all pretty funny, but none of it particularly stood out. Except for my happiness in seeing Strong Sad being... Sad for once. I give it a 3/5.

Now let's see this explode on its first email, only to be replaced for next email. :P

This totally makes up for last week's crapatorium. I'm still laughing my butt off at the Roomy-Vac. I also loved how they specifically pointed out their jokes shortly after telling the. Did they just say same was a color?

Knowing how well Vista works (assuming the Compe' (too lazy to find the accent mark) works on a similar OS), I think you'll have your SB's computer suspense.

A computer with a fairly large, widescreen, flat-panel monitor that still appears to be only capable of VGA-era graphics, judging by the logo...

Do... they really expect us to buy this? Is the Homestar Runner universe really that much of an Anachronism Stew now that brand-new stuff can behave like decades-old technology? I'm not sure I'm prepared to accept that, cartoon! And after the most arbitrary and impersonal killing-off of any computer so far, I might add. I don't know what I do want out of the new sbemailchine, but I'm really not sure this is it.

Relax. Chances are, it'll explode in about five e-mails due to Vista-style OS, or HR's Mountain Dew.

Weird, my Vista is perfect and only takes like 10 seconds to load after I log on.

But, to be OT.

I liked it. A lot.

I thought the beginning was HILARIOUS!! With Strong Sad saying "That was the happiest I've ever been!" lol.

I half-expected him to be picking some old computer, although he has progressed through computers to a more modern age already. So I also thought it might be something somewhat newer. I mean they have made fun of "old computers" for awhile. It might be more fun to make fun of "new computers" for awhile.

In addition, I like the compe's (how do you do the accent haha?) personality. Seems to be a prankster.

... only thing I didn't like was the bubbly edges on the right side of the monitor. I wonder if when they actually do sbemails if it will have a UI like Windows or Mac or if they'll stick to the old-school DOS type thing.

It'd be pretty slick if when he gets on it every week it had a different screensaver or something of that sort that disappeared once he sat down to check his e-mail. Then that could be a running gag.

I'm kind of sad there is nothing I can play with on it. With Compy I could adjust contrast, with Lappy I could press the screen. No such fun with Compe. :(

I was kinda looking forward to a song but hey...
Love the look of the Compé it adds European-looking flair. The other computers were funny, I especially liked the Roomy-vac. Loved the Poopsmith's costume (I've been playing lots of Majora's Mask lately so I got it strait away.) The fake error and the "I jo" screens made me lol. It does almost feel that TBC are putting off making a new SBmail but meh the website seen lots of those so I can wait.
4/5
