The counterproductive thing is, the people who you alienate with statements like this are the people who may have otherwise responded.
I used to read the forum several times a day, but I've just moved to Brazil and I won't have regular connectivity for a while. Of all the new threads since I last checked the forum a few days ago, yours
was one of the few that I opened. While I'm still interested in the origianl content because I was just lamenting the absence of a built-in mic on my XPS the other day, some of your posts have sort of spoiled my desire to get involved. (But not completely, because I understand your frustration.)
I'm definitly the "XPS Type": I love games, I want the best performance I can get without getting ripped off in the process, and I don't care what anyone thinks regarding the way my laptop looks. (And that goes both ways. I don't care if kids think it looks cool, and I don't care if a suit thinks it looks silly.)
As for your project, you might want to look into a noise-canceling mic as well. I use a headset with one and it makes a huge differece. (People can't hear the air conditioner in the background when I talk to them.)
