    Right so, I am confused.

    My sister wants a laptop, so my mom has said that if I give my current laptop to my sister I will get £350 off her for christmas.

    So all in all by march next year I will have £700-800.

    Now, if I give my sister my laptop I will seriously need a new one. So an option is that next march I get a mac book (3 months without laptop, but get a macbook in the end) and I will have either £100 or 0 left.

    Or I could just get a normal little £350 vista running laptop on christmas day.

    If I get the normal little vista running laptop however I will £300+ by next march. Should I just get some wii games and little things or what I have been considering is should I get a 360 core for £169. I dont need anymore then 30gb memory and I will get only a few games for it and will play some live.

    Now my question is what should I do?

    I think I might be able to get my mom into letting me have a 360. This gen I wasnt aloud more then one so I just got the wii but now I am seriously in need of some 360 gaming...

    Conundrums...

    So, what should I do?

    Wow. what a predicament...

    I'd say you should get the vista laptop and then get some wii games or a 360.

    I would get an Xbox 360 along with a couple new releases + xbox live if you really enjoy the games the console has to offer.

    I have been told that the core version can;t support live.

    Is this true?

    Not at all. Both the Xbox 360 Core and Premium systems can support Xbox Live.

    So to play basic live all I need is the console, a game and some membership?





    I am interested in vista but I would prefer to wait for a SP2. But if I keep this laptop i will only get £100, not £350. If I get the 350 then'll Il spend that on a new laptop which is better then my current.

    I am pretty sure that the Core system does not come with a hard-drive. Anyway, I would personally go for the new Laptop/MacBook, since it is more important to keep up with your studies and also because the Xbox 360 is known to "die" unexpectedly.
    But overall, it is your decision, so be careful with your choice.

    What does the hd have to do with the xbox?

    If I got a macbook then I wont have any money what so ever, but if I got the normal laptop i would probably be able to get a 360.

    So basically your options are:
    1. Pimped out comp, but you have to wait longer.
    2. Decent comp sooner + other stuffs.

    For me, it would depend how old I was. If I was going into college or older, I would buy the more expensive laptop. If I was not yet focusing on college, I would get a decent laptop to hold me over until I get a good one for college.

    I am 13.

    The only thing is, with the macbook I get the coolnes factor and some other things.

    For me I would be fine with a normal laptop for a few years. I have like 2.7 years left in school before college, but I then plan on going into more further education in a university.


    Ahh, the buying the premium with headset etc. might be better, but then I will not be able to get some wii games and 360 games...

    woah woah woah.

    Your going into college before you turn 16!? (13+2.7=15.7) Or are you talking about highschool? When I said college I meant a university.

    Well, year 9 has just started for me, then I have year 10 then 11.

    Thats when school ends.

    After school I head to college for a few years, then to university for a few years.

    My 2.7 is wrong, since I have only been back to school for 3 weeks, it feels like its been months >.>

    I dont know how to explain this because I never knew that our school systems were so different. I'll just explain what I would do:

    I am in grade 10 at high school. High school consists of grades 9-12, then I go to college. I would get a good laptop (probably a desktop, personally) towards the end of my 12th year of school, so that I have it going into college.

    EDIT: Thanks, Byuakuya.

    So, if I were in your predicament, I would buy a decent comp now that'll just hold me over until your later years of College. Then, you can buy a good comp. for university.

    The US and the UK education system are slightly different. What you refer to as "High school" is the UK equivalent of "College". "College" in the US refers to "University" in the UK. It is kind of confusing, but that is life. :lol:
