    I "need" a new desktop, but the thing is I dont know what I should say to my grandparents to convince them to let me get one, I technacly have the money for it they just dont think I should since I allready have a laptop (but not that good).
    What should I say that would convince them that I "need" a new desktop?

    EDIT:
    Please dont give me stupid answers

    Laptop got a bad virus, and you need a computer for school.

    Get the desktop, and a new friend at school offers to fix your laptop for free. He is successful. Yay.

    If they are not computer savvy then remove the laptop battery and tell them it is broken, get the new desktop, then put the battery back and tell them your friend fixed it for free. basically what was said above only slightly improved.

    Tell them your laptop doesn't meet the requirements for a program you need for school, and a desktop computer would work great for that kind of stuff.

    take lap top to school, give to friend to hold on too, make a scene in class that someone took it, tell grandparents it was stolen, then after you get your desk top someone turns it in to the office anonymosly.

    how come you missed this awesome post?
    this would be the easiest way imo. complain about your laptop being underpowered. and keep talking about your friends having good desktops doing awesome stuff.

    Go to a site that uses a virus that physically destroys a computer.
    Dumb plan but even an IT kid is going to look at it and go "yup, that shit be dead.".
