I had a really bad virus. I got a MacBook Air a year ago, and when I searched "programs for MacBook" (I was bored) I found a site that I downloaded. It turns out that I got a really bad virus on my laptop, and I was forced to do some sort of reboot. I don't know computers that well, but I know a really bad virus when I see one.

I trhy to play Cop Patrol on ROBLOX, I click play, nothing. I click play again, and it shows me the upgrading roblox message, then I get to the grey loading screen, it loads fast, but then the name of the game and creator pops up and it slows down so much, that I bet it would take decades to load, and then you get the annoying ID 17 problem, you lost connection to the game or the game has shut down message. - MinecraftHater

I hate it when the internet connection is very slow, you can't download, upload, surf the net, listen and watch videos and music and you can't even click the check button on this site. - ronluna

I hate it very much how things are getting expensive, the prices are need to be lowerd to save people money (and I'm not kidding, really, lower them).

I wouldn't even pay $1 for a PC or mac. I do all my computing on a cheapo Android tablet. Get a tablet, they are better than PCs and macs. - Kaboom

In 2011, a mid range was $200, while a high end was about $500. Now, even a low-end PC is almost $1000. We need to return to 2011 prices, they're more what the PC is worth. Anyone noticced prices suddenly got extremely high right when win 8 came out? Microsoft's fault!
