I am in the market for an Ultrabook and cannot make my mind up which one to go for.
Most of the reviews suggest the Samsung has the edge but the MacBook is probably due for an upgrade.
I am a Windows man but was seriously impressed with a recent demo of the Apple with a SSD drive.

Perhaps someone could help Phil out here:

Which type of laptop or netbook has the biggest capacity for downloading child porn, and the best resolution for looking at hi-def photos of children being abused?

Let him know ASAP, he's desparate. Those grainy phots of boys being raped just don't turn him on any more.

Bob must be getting lonely and desperate for some attention as he is reduced to searching for old posts of mine to respond to.
Somebody please humour the sad, inadequate apology for a grown up and talk to him.

OI Phil leave those kids alone!
Are you a parent?
Would you let your child be forced to let a teacher look down their shorts to make sure their butts were naked, or allow teachers to make your child strip naked so they could watch them shower?
Would you let that happen to your child?
But it was the worst thing I experienced at High School, by far. I think it is disrespectful to minimise other peoples' experiences because you didn't share them. There has literally been nothing in my adult life as utterly mortifying as having to parade naked in front of my whole class as a teenager. At my school the PE teachers seemed obsessed: a claimed verucca would be scrutinized with a magnifying glass, a girl who tried to claim two periods within a 28 day period would find a doctor's letter demanded of her, and each individual pupil was scrutinized going into the shower before her name was ticked in the book. Once when the worst PE teacher thought I was being cheeky, she made me stand naked in the changing room while she ridiculed me and I literally fainted. I don't think it is for anyone else to tell me that I should 'get over it' and that 'I have far too little to worry about'.
we didn't have a teacher watching us, and it was more of a walk through shower, but I developed quite fast a lot sooner than the rest of the girls. I got called Pamela Anderson which I hated (you know how bitchy young girls can be). Luckily the teachers we easy to slip past after p.e, and I was so unfit, so usually sweaty, they probably thought Iíd showered when I hadnít.
I would never go back to that, I remember sitting there crying so many times because I was embarrassed, I would never force that on a child.
Well lucky old you. The fact is that in a power struggle between those happy to prance round naked and those very unhappy to do so, I think priority goes to the second group. No one is suggesting that showers should be BANNED, just that a degree of modesty should be allowed to the shy and sensitive. I don't mind being naked now, particularly - I strip off regularly in the gym changing rooms. But the fact is that I minded intensely as a teenager. Who was any better off, for the humiliation and shame that I was forced to feel then?
This was forced upon developing children, girls having their periods monitored and adults viewing them naked.
In any other circumstances those people would be called paedophiles for forcing children to be looked at by them against the children's wishes.
I'm staggered this is not one of those situations where we all agree.
They were pretty crap at monitoring my periods. I managed to get six consecutive weeks off swimming before I got caught out
I would not mind but I had not even started my periods yet.

It is obvious to a blind man that you have an unhealthy obsession with children.
Do you really think you are fooling anybody with your mock outrage you use as a cover for your incessant internet trawling, looking for any mention of children in locker rooms, in showers, in PE kit?
Please don't tell me you are that thick.
Don't bother, you already have done.

How glad am I that the world we live in today is completely different. It's a shame people back then would sit back and just accept things like that without speaking out. Obviously if you don't know any different and it was considered normal then to older generations it will seem nothing extraordinary. However, to me, I just can't imagine these sorts of things happening, and would be inclined to give him a bit of a slap in return. After all, I don't see many adults willing to accept any of those punishments in the work place.
I guess that's just differences in generations though... Thankfully yours will die out before mine.. no offense it's just how I feel and I hope all of these old fashioned views die out with them.
Children didn't have the same rights as they do now. If you were in trouble at school your parents would most likely have supported the teachers. There was no question of children 'speaking out' against things they didn't like. You just got on with it.
n case you aren't aware.. this is a thread on a forum debating the issue. I don't actually go around protesting about communal showers in schools with banners and signed petitions. Before this thread I have never even given it a thought, and probably won't once this thread dies. It's just my opinion in response to other posters opinions.
It's been interesting reading this thread...I left school in 2007 and we never had to shower in school. I think I would have just point blank refused, I was (and still am!) very stubborn. We just sprayed on lots of deodorant and then showered at home. I don't remember anyone smelling bad. I was always quite happy with my body but that doesn't mean that I want to be butt naked in front of classmates, especially at secondary school age.
Oh God yes same at my school, the period register, teacher would call out the names and you had to call out "period" and she would check when you had the last one so you couldn't pull that excuse too often. Can't say it's scarred me for life but bloody humiliating and embarrassing and a bad memory I could do without.
I got a sick note for an entire year's worth of PE a couple years back because of bullying, fairly crippling self-esteem issues, and scarring all over my stomach and legs and arms that I was determined to keep to my good self. Even now that I'm older and tougher, there have been some horrible incidents where I've not changed cautiously enough and the attention of the entire room has been drawn to my mangled right thigh or whatnot. "Jesus Christ Kathleen, have you been in some kind of accident?!" Forty pairs of beady bitchy eyes swivel round to see what the fuss is about. Smelly tiled school floor, swallow me up now if you would be so kind.
Communal showers now, doesn't even bear thinking about. They're not abuse as such, but unnecessary and indecent and in no way beneficial and frequently detrimental to young 'uns, IMO. If I had faced communal showers in high school - well, call me a weakling and tell me to grow a pair if you want, but they would have been seriously upsetting and horrible experiences for me - and I may be a kid, but I think that feeling that way counts for something.
DJW, try and be original for once in your sad existence and stop blatantly copying off other websites.

Wheras Mr. No-Life Low-life Phil has nothing better to do than search for my posts, new or old, to respond to.

Hahahahahaha!

What a loser.
