I know it may cost more but still the fact that your throwing it away pisses me off ><. I was angry at myself when my screeen broke on my last one i was so attached to it i still didnt want to give it away lol

lol I never threw away my old comp, I'm still attached to it even though I don't use it anymore.

When I decided (and had the money) to get a new computer I just went to the hardware store and bought the parts. I don't really like when people buy it from retail or something :S

Confession: I don't even have a cell phone, even though that's kind of rare for a 17 year old these days.

I do think fancy electronics are nice, but I can live without them. My friend has the latest iPod, the super tiny Nano with the touch screen. It's completely useless. Why would someone want that-- it's a complete waste of money! I yearn for the iPod classic, for Christ's sake! I honestly don't care much about all the newest, fanciest gadgets. Functionality > currency, IMO.

I even knew this one woman at my church who bought her young daughter a Nintendo DSI. I don't think she was much older than 7 at the time. Honestly...

So, if my parents didn't get a computer until they were 37 years old, and I got mine's when I was 11 years old, its considered spoiled?


answer me this are you giong to throw away your computer when you get a new one or if it breaks? or will you keep it or try to get it fixed?


I'm sorry if this makes me sound like an ass, but if you own a computer that is over 5 years old, buying a new one is infinitely better than trying to fix the old one.


.............yeah that did but also throwing away a working computer in the trash is also a sign of immaturity. I mean come on I have a computer that's 5 years old full maxed out with 3 gigs of ram 500 gig hard-drive etc etc


There is something called recycling. You can also give it to someone that can't afford a new computer.


Sorry kid, but thats just a blatant waste of money. Why waste a perfectly good computer when you can just add on to it and make it better and make it have personality something that alot kids are lacking today. Thats a huge waste of your parents money, i have a notebook i bouth 2 years ago and its works just fine ive put tons of photos on it an dadded onto the softeware making ti better AND ALL WITH MY OWN MONEY probably unliek ypu. Recycling? my ass if you cared so much about wasting something donate that laptop to a foundation that gives em to unfortuante kids who CANT afford the luxuries of owning one.


1. Omg, you don't understand what I mean. My computer doesn't work well, seriously. It makes a noice that can be heard in my sister's room, I've been using it since 2005, it has a capacity of 36GB, it's very slow, and I've send it to fix several times, which is not cheap.
2.Not having money to afford a computer doesn't mean the person is unfortunate.
3.You are not the only one who works for the things you want. Shut up if you don't know about other people's situation.
4. I didn't say "to donate to a foundation". I meant to give it to someone who wants one but doesn't have one.

The noise might just be the fan. And you could easily upgrade it. Is what he's probably trying to say.
Also as any computer enthusiast will say, Never send your computer for repair since most tend to overprice and do nothing. Well then again, I know how to fix my own computer so I save myself the trouble of going to my cousin to fix my computer.

I noticed I didn't make myself very clear. I ALWAYS give out my old desktop to my grandfather, who in turn gives it to my cousin. By the time she gets done with those, buying a 100 GB external harddrive costs more, which isn't alot.

I'm just wandering because im only 13 and i already have these gadgets and things but i saw a kid in 1st grade with a ipod touch, a phone, and a camera. Like seriously why does a first grader need that? =.= just asking would you say we are spoiled? (mainly for people like 15+ but if u younger whatever)

Feel free to lock, report, or close forum if its a duplicate which it might be i didnt check


Yes, very spoiled. A first grader doesn't need any of that stuff, aside from a basic stripped down phone in case of emergency or the need to stay after school. Seems like a gaming system is near mandatory in every house hold, and half or more of the next generation can't even cook without a microwave. Talk about a generation needing a lesson in patience.

Seriously, that's what I meant earlier about buying a new one being cheaper than getting repairs. Me and my father are somewhat good at fixing my grandfather's computer, but sometimes he goes out and gets it fixed at some overpriced shop. They charge him something along the lines of $250. We just tell him that he could've gotten himself a new, faster one for the same price.

You always hear your Grandparents banging on about how we get things too easily and how they got a satsuma in their stocking not a video game and all that jazz, that is true.

I find it funny that people blame violence in today’s kids on video games and that they ‘mimic’ what they see on such games as GTA. You don’t see kids running around dressed as an Italian plumber jumping over walls do you? -__- Ugh! Its not the gaming industries fault, the kid is just fucked up. Its just evolution, I asked my Dad if things had changed since the 80’s and he was like “Yeah people don’t change, but times do.” Wise words Pap, wise words.


I received two satsumas in my stocking this year, I feel spoiled

I got a good laugh out of the Mario reference, and wise words indeed -nod-

I believe its a YES!!!! I got my first cell when i was in 4th grade but it was a crappy Nokia that all i could do was call on it. My sister got her first phone when she was 8! and it had internet, texting, a camera, video so on and so forth, also she got an ipod touch and she hardly used her mp3 before!!! And now she has the top of the line phone (palm pixi) thats brand new!!! I got my dads old phone which is the palm pre, but it wasnt new, it was really old. She doesnt have her own laptop but i do but i use it for my art and video making stuff most of the time. It really depends on the reasons you need things you know but if you looked at the difference between me and my 11 yr old sis, shes so much more spoiled than me. plus she has a camera which i asked for before she did so i can take pictures on sport trips or activities i do. whats an elementary kid gonna do with a camera??? seriously they dont need one! I hate my sister cuz shes so spoiled and its because of my dad. She wanted to win some tickets for a concert but she said "If i dont win, I'll get dad to buy them" Im like OMGSH U R SO FREAKING SPOILED!!! It just pisses me off ALOT

Hell yes.
Today's parents, at least a lot of them nowadays, seem to want children without having to take care of them. SO giving them all of this new tech and everything is their way of preoccupying their children so that they can spend time away from them. Which is probably why you can find four year olds on xbox live playing Black ops or Halo swearing it up. And here's the best part... The parents are either not around or don't seem to give a shit.

I agree =C I can understand them wanting there kids to have what they didnt but handing them everything just so they wont have to deal with them can be pretty unhealthy in a parent and child relationship 8C its sad too see Parents not paying attention to whats going on with there kids nowadays
