This is really significant because whoever have the best computers and the resources will dominate, that's why I say by the year 2015 Xhina will be the number 1 country in the world because science and technology in China is moving at warp speed.

I wonder if they'll lend me the computer for a month or two and use it on the stock market. Man, I'll make sooo much money, if you know what I mean. LOL.
