If you are considered a dangerous hacker by the government, your parole will most certainly include restrictions barring you from going anywhere near a computer, let alone owning one. That would be quite unfortunate if you ask me, but hey they should have thought about that before becoming such a threat. That being said, it's safe to assume most of us here are at least average computer users. Could any of us live the rest of our lives not going anywhere near a computer? [highlight] How much money would it take to get you to not touch a computer or use the internet in any way for the rest of your life? [/highlight] Console based videogames do not count as computers.. yet, however internet based play would be completely out of the question. For me I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't be able to take any amount. Even if I got a ton of money I'd want to buy computer equipment with it. I wouldn't be able to do it.
