Buy a Quad Xeon 3.4, and save the rest for University

You probably wouldn't buy a particularly good island for 3 Million.

It depends on what country the island is in.. because dollars are worth more in other countries. Duh.

Well yeah - but still To buy an island, which has resources, then to get people to mine those or farm those I suppose was what you were insinuating to make more money... even in Japan or China that is not really going to do it

You still don't understand the fact that prices in other countries are cheaper, and labor is cheaper. $3 million here in US may be worth $30 million in Mozambique, for example.

Haha. Maybe it would work... but it would take so much effort to organise the labour and transport and selling and for three million even in a tiny third world country that has an island with no people living on it you're not going to get one that will have many resources because it will already have been found and mined by the British or French.
