What should i buy please help!?

I have saved up my money for a while and i am 12. I want to get a new laptop to replace my acer aspire in 2006 and i am torn to what to do. I might get windows 7 very cheaply for it but i am thinking should i get a macbook, a cheap laptop, or an ipad. I only use these things for multimedia(music, pics, movies, etc), school work and serious web browsing and if its strong enough maybe some gaming. I HAVE $500!

    You should get a laptop...because i also have an ipad and the only problem is that yo play games and watch movies and all that entertaining stuff you will have to pay for every single thing and i am sure you have saved $500 but an ipad cost about $500 also so your really not gonna have enough money to enjoy the ipad....its better to get the laptop cuhz you could just watch the movies online for free and play games for free and school work is always easier to do on the laptop. I mean you can survive with no money even after geetting the ipad but it wont be as much fun as having a laptop and free games and other stuff.

    I would say that its time to go Mac. Get either a macbook or an ipad. Since you only have $500 I would suggest getting it the same way I did, which is through a website that gives you free stuff for trying out their online marketing strategies. Free...sign up or buy a macbook when you have the money.

    You might want to check out laptops for yourself:




    A great start would be the HP G62t series or the Dell Inspiron 15.

    Also, consider purchasing a desktop, if you are willing to browse for one. Desktops are awesome for multimedia/web browsing and even some decent games (especially at your price.)
