That sounds horrible; I couldn't imagine just one parent covering such a big expense. That is peculiar though, I'm in the U.S. and a lot of people have parents that help little if any on paying tuition and books, let alone some spending cash. The worst part is that of course, students are responsible for all the education expenses, and the amount of financial aid/loans they're eligible depends on their parents' income etc., and there's an "Expected family contribution", but of course the parents aren't forced to give you that. So it's more like a "Suggested donation". Of course when someone sees a number that's 10% of their after-tax income, they usually shove it right back. And to add to the irony, the parents are eligible for tax credits for the student's tuition and book expenses! /off-topic.

Yes, I agree. It has allowed her to buy her own car with because everything else is paid for.

I know about the tax credits, but as far as I know about what's going on she it has been hard getting even those simple tax papers from her come income tax time.

My dad helps out with gas and other expenses some times, but I don't demand that help. It's outrageous that courts can just order this kind of thing.

most parent arent very tech savy !instead of arguing(wich will end you in trouble)show them proof online next time!if your argument was properly researched by you them or both!then you have less chance of :your parent being ripped off of their hard earned money and becoming later frustrated with a subpar product,and you wont feel like you parents money is being stolen right in front of their eye !so both win!

If she is just using it for browsing and basic stuff, getting an ipad would be a great idea. Awesome tablet if you ask me.

OP should become literate before demeaning other people. That being said... I do sympathize with the OP. It's not that I have a huge problem with buying things from salesmen, it's the older generations' baseless fear of the internet that I can't stand.

A few years back my dad was buying a pre-built. This being a few months before I did my first build he didn't really trust me. He asked my opinion on a group of computers. There were 2 Acer computers that stood out to me. Both $600, identical specs, Radeon HD4650, 500GB HDD, etc. the only difference being one was like a 2.3GHZ Core 2 Quad, and one a 2.9GHZ Phenom II and it came with a free monitor worth about $150. At the time our monitor was a dying CRT, the screen was fogged over and the colors were all yellow. I pretty much told my dad to go for the PC with the free monitor, and of course he decided to do exactly the opposite because he felt I had no clue what I was doing.

A few months later the CRT exploded(on the inside at least, loud bang and flash) and he spent $200 buying a new monitor, seeing as he uses the computer like one day per month I doubt it really would have mattered what monitor he'd gotten. I think my mom was pissed at him for a while, the monitor blew while she had all her friends over, serves him right haha.

I am not demeaning them. All i am saying is that they are stubborn, asking me for my opinion then going with the opposition.
