Apple Computer's line of professional grade notebook computers that contain Intel x86 hardware, as opposed to IBM or Motorola PowerPC hardware. The MacBook Pro line was launched January 10th, 2006, claiming to be 4 to 5 times as fast as the (Now Legacy) PowerPC line of professional notebooks known as Powerbooks.
Steve: You going to order a MacBook Pro?
James: Hell no! POWERPC RULES!
Steve: I hear you can put Linux and Windows on it too.

A problem so gangsta that you best be busting out your pocket non-deterministic turing machine to solve. No pimp should be caught solving problems in anything slower than polynomial time. That just ain't right.
Carl: Yo momma is SO FAT, determining her weight is NP-Complete!
Gary: ... What?
Carl: BURN!

A set of steps used to solve a problem. A word primarily used in the fields of mathematics and computer science, but can be applied to almost anything.
Fred: Hey man, find a job yet?
Greg: No man, I developed an algorithm to make some mad cash!
Fred: ...
Greg: Step 1: Obtain a case of beer. Step 2: ??? Step 3: Profit!
Greg: Can't argue with that logic. Beer me.

A poorly pronounced or spelled version of tosser. Synonymous with wanker. An Australian term for a guy that masturbates a lot, rather, A bloke that masturbates a lot.

A fucked up instruction set architecture, or ISA, based on the Intel 8086 microprocessor. Really confusing to program with in Assembler. Supports 8, 16, 32 and now 64-bit instructions and data. x86 is classified as "CISC" or "Complex Instruction Set Computer".

The two largest x86 chip producers are Intel and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD).
Jimmy: x86 is awesome.
Larry: You've clearly never done any assembly programming on one, have you?
Jimmy: ... Uh, no?
Larry: Thats what I thought... n00b.

Used to (loosely) describe a geographic location that the person saying it is currently located. This person is usually a Thug or Gangsta or perhaps a Wigger.
Deshawn: Yo man, this place be bunk!
Antwon: Yeah, lets roll out this bitch.

The set of the most difficult problems in Mathematics, solvable in polynomial time only by a non-deterministic turing machine, but verifiable in polynomial time. In mathematics and computer science is shortened to np. Of course, the editors of UD would rather publish BULLSHIT or several thousand entries for George Bush than something having to do with math. Also, why won't they publish "S4R" is a perfectly acceptable definition.

Rule number 5 + Rule number 10 guys. Seriously. I'm an editor too.
Aaron: Did you know the editors of UD don't actually follow rules 5 and 10?
Mike: Yeah, they turned down my definition for "np", y'know, its short for "Non-deterministic Polynomial time".
James: Yeah, and then the go and publish shit like "S.C.L.I.D". Apparently technical terms for guns are fine, but not in Math.
Aaron: Yeah, seriousy uncouth.
Mike: HOLLA!
