Driscoll Uses Dell


Deerfield, IL.

Mark Driscoll may not be as hip as was once thought.

Driscoll, the co-founder of Acts 29 and lead pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, WA, was reportedly seen using a Dell laptop at the A29 Boot Camp recently held at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. During the fifth session, led by Mark Dever, Driscoll sat in the back of the A. T. Olson Chapel working on a Dell laptop.

Long assumed that someone of Driscoll's "cool" factor-- which goes up to eleven-- would be a Mac user, many of the Boot Camp participants were floored.

"I mean, I use an HP, but that's just because I don't consider myself as cool as Driscoll," stated a despondent Joe Thorn. "I just don't know how he's able to reach the today's culture on a Dell."

The Reformissionary, Steve McCoy, was unaware of Driscoll's Dell using tendancies. "I had always looked up to the guy, but now, I, I . . ." His eyes glistened as he was unable to finish his sentence.

Other higher-ups in the Acts 29 Network were not as shocked.

"Yeah, I knew he used a Dell, but I never thought he would in public. It has really devastated many of our church planters," stated Darren Patrick, pastor of The Journey in St. Louis.

Many there, though, seemed completely unaware of Driscoll's downfall, as they lined up to talk to him after Wednesday's session. Most were focused on how to balance their family life and church planting, rather than the real issues.

Quick to leave after answering the church planters' wives' questions, the only thing he had to say was, "Dude, I got a Dell."

The reported image of Driscoll on a Dell has not been found.

Ha Ha! Nice one!

Rev.J. Theodore Helms said...

I'll bet it was all those old "Dude, you're gettin' a Dell" commercials.

Thomas said...

Driscoll has definitely fallen in my estimation. He is not maybe a 9 or 10 on the cool scale.

Matt Proctor said...

finally a brother with good theology and computer preferences (Microsoft is my kind of company; not bad when its name-sake gives millions to establish jobs in the global south)

not good. definitely a huge let down. i hope he wasn't persuaded by the old Dell commercials, thomas, because the Mac ones are so much better. one day all will see the power of the APPLE.

It's kinda like still using a typewriter when word processors have been out for years. He is like old school cool.

Carlos said...

Speechless, I mean I live in NM and we out in the desert don't even use Dell's...

Driscoll say it ain't so....

jigawatt said...

Maybe he's running Linux on it.

Ahh, the unforgivable sin.

The power of APPLE?? Yeah, we know that power - look at what taking a bit of apple in Genesis 3 did for us all...

The really cool people use any laptop, as long as it's powered by Linux :)

Who says it was an apple? Not Gen. 3.

Its not that surprising that he uses a PC, although you couldn't pay me to go back to one!

Not for nothin' but even Phil Johnson uses a Mac.

c'mon. If John MacAthur' "guy" can use a mac ... well, apparently it's all smoke and mirrors. Next thing we'll find out is that he drive a minivan and doesn;t really watch TV.

Thank God!!! there is someone else. I can come out of the closet now. I own a Dell. There I've said it...and shit!, I don't feel any better.

Big Mike Lewis said...

You're all acting like it's bad, but deep down you're jealous of Dell & the Mighty PC. It's because we can run real software, huh?

No, I will not convert to be "cool".

Rob Mitchell said...

Would it restore any "cool" factor if his Dell was running Ubuntu instead of Windows? I don't think this is the case, just curious.

Mark Grapengater said...

I checked-- definitely Windows. Maybe, even Vista!

BTW, shortly after this post, Mark Switched to a Mac. As did pretty much his whole team. :)

Monkeywrenchmel said...

Um, I don't think Driscoll has repented enough. He doesn't have an iphone to my knowledge.

I use a rejected dell laptop but the iphone makes ups my cool factor.

Just saying.

Adam Wygle said...

I can verify that he does indeed have an iPhone as well. :)

Monkeywrenchmel said...
