I have to agree with Namir. There is a difference between humorous satire and offensive ridicule, and over the years, the writers at SNL often haven't understood that, or lacked the talent. The long-running comedy show's popularity has been spotty largely because of that mediocre writing, which never measured up to that of In Living Color, for example. (Here is a clip.)
I'd say that most of us real enthusiasts appreciate the unification of excellent electrical engineering, mathematics, software engineering, mechanical engineering, and product design in these tools that we used in our collegiate programs, and oftentimes on the job. That's why we mostly favor the premium models from Hewlett-Packard, from the 1970's through the early 1990's.
