    What country or state are you based in warlord?

    Do you need to raise 100% of the cost or do you have some money already that you can use?

    If money is tight, be sure you're not spending too much on your laptop. If you just need basic computer functions like internet/email ect, then you should be able to get one for around $300. Check your local ads after Christmas time, there is likely to be some great deals. You may even want to look into the new chromebook if it suits your business needs (not sure what your business is, it may actually require a much nicer computer).

    You would need to build up an audience either through referrals or search engine traffic. Once you have a sizable audience you can monetise your site with adverts, affiliate referrals, google adsense etc.

    However I must warn you this is a lengthy process and there's a LOT of competition. If you don't know what you're doing it will be a steep learning curve and one that might not yield results for quite some time. I would say you'd be a lot quicker getting a part time job for a month or so...

    If you want to make money from your first laptop, there are many ways to do it. The first thing to remember is to look for some recognizable skills, business opportunities and capital.
    This type of business has been suggested previously by many people to alternatively becoming an online*business opportunity.

    A way to minimise how much you spend on your first laptop would be to purchase a Google Chromebook.
