|the rich kid who deserves something is the one who worked for it
Anyways, i am getting a laptop. For college, and other things... Funny thing is... My college doesn't even allow laptops in some of the classes (i live out in the sticks). I have many reasons for getting a laptop...
1. Taking notes. I tried to take notes last year with pen/paper. I haven't actually written anything in about 6 years though. I type over 100 wpm now, so... It's just easier for me to type, pluss I can actually read it that way.
2. I am part of running a manufacturing business and I need another computer to hook up to a new machine we are getting called a Laser Engraver. I plan on hooking my laptop to the Laser Engraver to send designs/drawings/pictures to the machine, and also to set some of the options when I have to.
3. To have a private computer from everyone else for business and pleasure. Currently the computer used for business is also used for everything else. My 11 year old brother uses it, and my dad does also. So this way all my stuff is seperate, which means everything is safer. Also, it's another backup for all our business stuff (Magazine ads, instruction sheets, newsletters, website pages, etc.)
4. So I can have MY OWN COMPUTER. I can use it when I want. WHENEVER I WANT TO. No more fighting with my brother, or waiting for my dad. It's mine, simple. MINE!!!
5. It's a good investment. I BARELY spend ANY money on things that won't pay for itself times 4. I think we've spend 5K on computers... And probably between 5-10K on programs. Whats that do? I now make all newsletters, instruction sheets, business cards, magazine ads, website, etc, etc. Also allows us to answer customers problems/questions instantly which is a huge pluss for overseas customers. I also now tutor others in my county, and even do some freelance work for companies which makes even more money. The laptop allows me to be "unplugged" and "mobile". Why a power hungry sager for mobile? Why not? Always plugs around.
Ofcourse some teenagers spend tomuch on things. But then again.... So do "older people". Really, I see alot more splurging done by the older humans, they all figure "we're already in debt, whats a few thousand more gonna do?". Same with businesses. Really, most things in the world actually plan on working in debt... Look at the USA
