I'm a 13 year old boy and I do a lot of filming and editing and really want a macbook pro. What is the best way to make money for a macbook pro?

Thanks Edward

If you enjoy filming, I say start up a YouTube channel. After a while, you can get partnered with either YouTube itself or an independent network. You won't earn much, but if you don't spend it on crap, you should be able to save up a few hundred dollars in a few months. And ALWAYS ask for gift cards or money on your birthday and Christmas if you're saving up for something.

Since you're not old enough to get a normal job, see if you're parents would give you extra money for doing additional chores (like cleaning the inside and outside of the car, cleaning dishes, washing clothes, vacuuming or scrubbing the floors, dusting, etc.).

If you've already reached the limit to how much your parents will give you, you could always see what kind of work your neighbors have for you. Spring is soon approaching, so yardwork will be in demand. Mowing lawns or doing normal around the house work for your neighbors should give you $5 here and $10 there.

By the end of summer, you should have enough money to buy a MacBook Pro if you are diligent.

However, there are other great Macs that are much cheaper. I'm not sure why you would need a MacBook Pro, when you could get a Mac Mini. You could also get a previous generation MacBook Pro for a few hundred dollars less just by searching your local Craigslist. Don't forget that with Craigslist, you can haggle the price!

Are you able to do computer repair, or better yet, ate you able to practice a little soldering, reflowing and surface mount soldering? if so then you can get some cash repairing computers and a wider range of other electronics.

Also, if you want to get into video editing and need fast hardware for the money, then do not get a mac, build a custom PC and get more than twice the performance of a macbook pro for less than half the cost.

With any of the apple systems, if you build a custom system, or pick out the parts for one, you can pretty much always match the specs for significantly less money.

remember, macs and PC's use the same hardware and the only true differences are really just the case and the OS (and trust me, an OS will not make an application run faster)

Also do you have a DSLR? (if not, don't get one) for now but if you do, see if you can get hired to photograph an event such as a party or other events that are not at the level of spending $2000 to hire a pro to photograph a wedding.
