well..13 is like the building block of you next few years. I mean, the habits you start now will stay with you. Be smart and responsible, (don't do drugs pretty much, hey they're prolly expensive too!) and just set your sights. If you got a sick computer at the age of 13...you better make sure you have friends and a social life!

as for when you're "older"...I'd say 9/10th grade.

You'll want a car.
and girls.
and friends.
and spending money.

Not that the money you have now will be around then, but getting in the habit of saving will make you more likely to have money saved when that time comes lol.

Sounds kind of sad to me. You would rather spend time/effort/money on a machine rather than reality? Aren't computers the same as what you have defined girls as? Time, attention, money? It takes time, money, and attention to build a computer. It takes time and attention to be on your computer, or else it becomes useless and a waste of your money.

Nah, they're not expensive, and they're way more entertaining then a computer can ever be. The draw back is they make you not care about the life going to sh!t all around you. If they were expensive the gettos wouldn't be a bad place to live, but then again they wouldn't be gettos.

Yeah I go with save your cash, as I'm opposed to spending money on improving someone elses stuff.

well youll start saving up like i did n just buy an average one when you have about 3/4 of your prediction, just buy one, make it upgradable, simple as. then you have money to spend on other things or upgrade your comp, its your decision then, but for now, buy a decent upgradable comp. or when you have $800 or so.
