Looks like Stro Bro's finally got his worst computer yet- the Vista Compe! So he won't be using the Corpy. So he's got that going for him. Which is nice.

Worst computer? Look at it! It has Style Class a FLAT SCREEN AND A ACCENT MARK! This one displays more then Eight Colors AND IT COMES WITH EUROPANE STYLE AND SOUTH EAST ASIAN PRICES!! This may be the best computer he has ever had.

Can't be a Vista because it didn't REALLY Blue Screen.

That was pretty good. Loved the Poopsmith's costume and "Why did they print that whole exchange?" But I'm a little concerned with Stro Bro's computer choice. I'm simply never going to get used to a screen that huge and design that fancy. Overall I'll give it a 4/5

Speaking as an owner of a Vista, I can say it's pretty darn crappy. Trust me. Okay, maybe not Tandy-crappy, but I'd have stuck with the Lappy or even the Corpy.

A nice enough toon, I thought. I can't say I'm convinced about this new computer, though. Seems far too modern for Strong Bad. Oh well, we'll see how long a run it gets. Wonder what'll happen Paper-wise.

It's here, it's here, it's finalily here! This, has got to be, the best computer Strong Bad has ever had. and only $800 too (80,000 pennies). But I will have to get to that, lump on the top right of his computer. But I'd have to say, niiiiiiice.

I liked it. The only thing I don't like are the ridges at the top right of the monitor. But there's a LOT more screen... on-screen, than the Lappy. And it reminds me something from the late 90s for some reason.

Do you think that the next week will have a Paper Catalog?

Love the Compe! My favorite of his computers. I'm a sucker for all things classy and sophisticated! Plus, it looks like Strong Bad's head will get far less in the way, which sometimes annoys me.

I was surprised he ended up going with something so hip though.

Oh geez I think I'm getting to know the BCs' style too well, for half the jokes I was like "lol it would be funny if __" a second before Strong Bad got to them. Still awesome though!

Also: those ridges are cutting-edge European fashion, mang. None of you have any appreciation for true art.

No I'm joking.

WOW. When he first started describing the Compé, I was expecting it to be too expensive, so he'd have to get something crappier. Then the flagrant error occurred, and I thought, "Okay, that's way funnier." And then that was a joke.

So that got me all confuzzled, and I had to watch the whole thing a second time. But now I can definitely accept the Compé, and I've already grown kind of attached to it. I can't wait to see what the new new paper is going to look like.

Also, that first part with Strong Sad was unexpected and freakin' hilarious.
And a Zelda reference.
Moved from a 4/5 to a 5/5.

Also, Strong Sad's quote mad me lul incessantly.

There is clearly going to be a catch. It's probably going to say something like Do you want to reply to this email?

As a Vista user, I've never had any major problems with it. The loading time when you logon is annoyingly long, but otherwise everything's fine.

I liked this toon. Not what I'd expected from Strong Bad's new computer. I was expecting an early Windows computer with a one-button mouse. But I guess making fun of new computers is as fun as old ones.

I loved Strong Sad "That's the happiest I've ever been!"
I loved Strong Bad's description of the computer.
I really loved the ad for the supercomputer (I'd pay $240 million for that thing! J/K)
Ah the color palette for computers: white, grey, black, brown, tan, silver, beige, pale yellow, and off white. Such variety!
The fake error was great. I joke', Lol.
The old people computer was funny. A monitor that resembles a croched picture, with giant type for the farsighted, and a meatloaf sized cursor that's shaped like meatloaf! That, and the mouse is an actual mouse that will chew your food for you!

don't think that's vista... No way he'd skip over 3.1 you know... or at least hit 98.
I want the power house, but I'm afraid that the catalog is outdated.
the poll spelt finalily wrong. finalily is obviously the last flower in a video game. He was excited that he beat it. Just joking with a jenga jam. could you pass the hot wings and some gravy?

fixed something that I typed while I was halph asleep

Amazing! Had to give it 5/5. I was gonna give it 4, mainly because he didn't answer any e-mails... but then I realised he didn't need to. If anything, the addition of an e-mail could have spoiled it...

I liked it. It was good to see The Poopsmith again, and I loved "That was the happiest I've ever been." 4/5!

I'm surprised one of the poll options isn't "That was the happiest I've ever been..." Actually, that could go anywhere...

Anyway, I had been thinking that even though The Poopsmith is my least favorite character, he hadn't really appeared since Kick-a-Ball. Strong Bad probably should've gone for the family one since he has no printer, though. Or does he...

Anyway, random note, I have Vista and don't have anymore problems than I did with the old XP an--what? My computer is bloke?

Oh wait it's-a-joking.

...I want a cursor chaped like meatloaf.

The Compé, because flat-panel sophistication demands made-up words.

Final score: 4/5.

Edit: Oh yeah, I was actually sort of expecting Strong Bad to say he likes the sound of "this" and it would cut to him with his new computer... the Lappy 487 that's totally different from the Lappy 486 (except not really!!!) or something to that affect. ;o

The computer itself seems more like a parody of the aluminum iMacs, but I think we'll have to see how it operates before we can call the operating system parody.

Also, I approve. I very, very approve.

The thing with Apple parodies before, though, is that they've always been spot on except for the logo. And the $800 price point doesn't do much to support it, either.
