It would have been cheaper to buy a new computer. Easier on the nerves too.

Android Application Development says that you have to change your computer's doctor or you have to change your Computer parts or purchase new and cheaper computer because as your given result is so high cost so simple way is purchase a new computer.

Well, I started off with just a cost of $10 and you by the time you figure you could buy a new computer, you were in too deep. Need to develope disposable computers...oh wait, they have.
