Should this equipment be funded on a student loan?
Between $300 and $500 dollars a year for a device that will last 4 years of high school, is that unreasonable?
Tell me where I'm going to come up with a grand a year (2 kids)? Because there's no way in hell 14 year olds should end up with a student loan!
And 4 years? Seriously? I have a 4 year old laptop that struggles to surf the net (slight exaggeration)
And you think high-school students are going to walk into class with "OHH LOOK, THAT KIDS COMPUTER IS SOOO OOOOOOLD!"
No piece of tech these days is going to last 4 years! I'm sitting here looking at a 4 year old phone that cost $800 when new... I'd be lucky if I got $5 for it today! And it certainly can't be used anymore!
Well that just shows you chose cheap to start off with, my 4 year old computer still runs just as fast as it did when first purchased.
