No, not at all. It'd be a laptop dedicated to music (recording and playing live). If I wanted something for personal use, I would buy it myself.
Whatever happened to people working hard for the things they want to buy? Saving money has apparently become a thing of the past. Instead of saying, "this is how much money I have saved for this project. XXXXX amount would help me meet my goal," it's turned into FUND MY WHOLE PROJECT.
Kickstarter removes all personal accountability. If you don't have the money to buy a new laptop or record with SUPER-AWESOME PRODUCER WHO'S DONE ALBUMS BY ALISTOFNAMEDROPPEDARTISTS....sorry. Life isn't peaches and rainbows.
I'm not about to publicly state my annual income, but if I were to try and save money out of my own pocket for this, you wouldn't hear new music from me until roughly June 2012. By that time, my good friend, whom I want to play guitar on the record, would already be over in the Middle East somewhere, as he is leaving for the military in May. Also, I am my own producer; I would be recording everything myself. That is why I need a new laptop.
$4k isn't going to fund the entire project. The site is called Kickstarter for a reason. This isn't jonnycraigslist.com (I had to say it!).
 I also gave away my first album entirely for free, which was downloaded by somewhere around 20,000 people; I had absolutely no idea that my music would grab so much attention, and if I did, I would have charged for the album, and been able to use that money to fund my music just fine. Like I said, its a KICKSTARTER project, not a charity organization.
