    Hey guys, i have been searching the web trying to find ways to make money on my mac, i see people talking about blogging and things like that which im not really interested in. Does anyone in this forum do anything on the computer to make some extra side cash that actually really works? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Just because you have a Mac, doesn't mean you can just make money. What skills & interests do you have?

    Because there isn't.

    Macs are tools to help you not an end all to making money. If I could make money by just having a Mac then I would do it... we all would.

    It's a tool, like a hammer is to a carpenter, not a magic money maker.

    Put the carpenter with the hammer and you can build something. You already know the answer and it is the question. What do you do? and how can you couple the computer with it and make cash.

    Your title is a bit off. You mean you want to make money with you mac through online means. Well even that is super vague. It's like asking, hey wat career would be good for me? You gotta be a lot more specific.

    Just do what you like, I like doing art/design so I freelance on the side. If you're looking got get rich quick stuff there's tons of it on the internet but I wouldn't waste your time with that stuff. Do something that involves your interest.

    Go to MIT, earn a Masters in Computer Science, move to Silicon Valley, problem solved. I know, it worked for me.

    I make money using my iMac doing-
    Freelance game art
    Developing games
    Freelance iOS producer and consultant
    A bit of website design
    Stock art for magazines, brochures etc
    Selling stuff on eBay
    Small photography jobs for local businesses

    Just do what you do best. If it's art, then make art. If it's music then make music. If it's IT support then do that. Just monetise what you have skills, talent or an education in.

    Well, the easiest way is probably:

    1. Post it for a reasonable price on Craigslist - cash only.
    2. Meet/rob prospective buyers.
    3. Repeat.

    You could probably get a few grand that way before you're either caught, or beaten up by a guy bigger than you.

    You can make money by Folding, right? I'm not sure how that works but I know if you fold for EVGA, they give you some discounts on their products.

    Either way, folding on your Mac would probably take a very long time.
