    i saved up and bought a used one when I was 16. Then again, it broke a year later, bought another one for 2,000$ when I was 22.

    They are pretty affordable nowadays. Check out ibuypower.com and look into Sager Laptops (but dont buy directly from sager, lol they over charge).

    I keep almost buying a laptop but then I tell myself that I don't need one and get an equal desktop for cheaper instead. I'm pretty sure my next computer is going to be a MacBook or a MacBook Pro though. I will probably get one when Leopard comes out.

    Got mine at 25 or 26, then sold it a little while later. I can see how a laptop would be perfect for college.

    after a lengthy study i have calculated that the proper age for buying a laptop is 19 years 3 months....that part was easy....the hard part is calculating the age you learn that laptops are more expensive and are rubbish and that normal PCs are far superior.. :rolleyes:

    Its usually 18, the age when most students enter University. I got mine just one month before I was to start my first day at Uni.

    Yeah, it's university, after all, our government funds us so that nearly everyone gets one.

    I think it depends on your situation really, I got mine not long after my 15th birthday.

    I had a pc at home but it was rather crappy and VERY slow, so I asked my mum for a new one but she wouldn't pay for one. But on my 15th birthday I could access this savings account she did for me since I was born, so she said I could use some money from in there to get myself a laptop or pc.

    Well because my parents are divorced and live about an hour away from each other I end up traveling quite a bit, so I thought I'd get a laptop to use up my fathers too :)

    Quite cool actually, I could only take out £100 a day, so it was the week I was doing work experience and I went to the bank after work every day and took out £100, on the Saturday I went to buy it and the dud asked how I was paying an I was like :thumbsup: cash and he was like 'woah really, lemmie see!' ...lol

    I would say when your around the age of 17/18 only because you don't really need one when your in high school.
