My idea encompasses both types of acronyms. The typical perlmonks acronyms mentioned above, and the things that you are likely to see in messages.

TIMTOWTDI There is More Than One Way To Do It

etc...
Perhaps the page should be devided into two sections or something to explain that they are different...

Re(3): Acronyms. (Perlmonks-specific Acronyms).. (minor quibble, acronymfinder)

    One wee-tiny quibble, brother krujos.   AFAIK, TMTOWDI sans the first "I" is the original form of the "There's More Than One Way To Do It" acronym.  

    FWIW, http://www.acronymfinder.com/ is my favorite place to find what an acronym stands for.   There's even an AcronymFinder form on my homenode, in the Search Jones section.   Of course it doesn't (yet?) contain PM-specific acronyms.

[1nickt]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
LanX has a shaming laptop
[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
