But it is gold-plated.. And it has not one ultimate, but two. That is twice the unltimateness.

Put.... away..... creadit card... you............... will................regret this...

Seriously, I agree with you. An apartment is personal space where you can do anything. That cannot be beat.

You can't even consider choosing a computer over an apartment, an apartment for sure! I mean sure, that's one amazing computer.. 3TB space.. 46" monitor.. 4GB RAM.. quad core something or other.. plus all the other mad features..

depends. If you are living with your parents right now then moving to an apartment will be harder than you think. You will have to pay your electricity bill, you will have to pay other bills, you will have to buy food. You will have to do all the cleaning, you will have to take care of yourself 100%.

So spending the money on the computer might be easier. But seriously, your own apartment is a great thing. I moved to my apartment a few months after I turned 16, and I've never even thought about moving back to live with my parents.

ohh, and might aswell built a custom computer for 1/5 of that price.

There should be no contest, your own place to do what you want with must come first, you will already have a computer that you can get by with so upgrade later when your settled.

OMG I would never spend 23,000 on a copmputer! Either get an apartment, or if you already have a nice place to stay a new car or something like that.

Exactly what i meant by my comment earlier, you have never had to wheigh up the pros/cons etc. Whereas the older members have been there and done it

@thelis, have you even got 23k, or are ya in a fantasy land?

well I've rented the place and the government gives me some money to pay for rent and other stuff now that I'm 18. It really isn't a lof of money, but it's enough to pay the rent and buy food.

Geeze, go get a nice car or something. Haha. Actually I'd save it for later, that's a load of money you're talking about. If it's credit that's worse though, don't go down that road if you don't have to.
