how does a high school kid afford a $7000.00 CPU?


A job and mowing lawns. :-b


I've got to quit my job, get a low income paying partime job for the tax-break, and then start mowing lawns on the side.

A gameing system that ($7,000) advanced, I cant see how adware could even noticeably slow it down.

I must admit that I mowed lawns back when I was a kid. I always had the cool video game systems and games though. :-)

Couldn't do a $7,000 system. I only charged $10. :-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

I charge $80 a lawn. But we put down fertilizer and weed killer also, alon with mowing and edging. I put out a flier and I have 21 calls within 2 days for new customers. Plus, the lawns in my neighborhood are really big.

People who spray lawns for a living, not even cut and edge, get paid a TON of money. You can make thousands a week if you've got a big enough client base (although can't work in the winter, obviously). All you need to do is pass a test (very hard from what I've heard) and get to know some landscapers. It takes no time at all once you get things going. But for a student, $80 a lawn in pretty good. Landscaping is becoming my backup plan after University but I don't want to do what I'm doing now; work for somebody else and make $10/hr while they watch me and rake in the cash.
