New stretch target

Crowdfunder have this 'stretch target' feature which basically means if I exceed my target, a secondary target can kick in. Well, if my target is reached before the project date ends, it'd be nice to buy an iPad while I'm at the Apple store sorting out the iMac LOL as I could use this during my 'srs biz' (serious business!) tripod videos and provide updates when out and about. I'm still on one of the first iPads with a broken screen and no home button ha ha. Anything in excess of my target will be invested in KopTalk.TV / DKB.TV / KopTalk with proof of purchases made available but I'm a realist and I'm just grateful for the support you guys have given me. Thank you. I can't wait for the transfer window to open now!

Project aim

With a new, dedicated, high-spec computer I can double the production of videos on KopTalk.TV, my free YouTube channel.

About the project

KopTalk.TV is an independent YouTube channel that provides informal, light-hearted, news and opinion relating to the world of football, with the emphasis being on matters concerning Liverpool Football Club. 

The channel has almost 16,000 subscribers and has accumulated more than 4.6million views and a staggering 12.5million minutes watched. Despite the large following and popularity of the channel, YouTube's partnership programme pays little meaning it is virtually impossible to invest in new equipment.

At present I use an old computer to record, edit, render and upload videos to YouTube. The process is time consuming. During the rendering process, it is not possible to record and produce any more videos which means it can take 1-2 hours before I can even attempt to create new content. With a new high spec computer I would be able to produce double the amount of free videos that I usually do. While a video is rendering on one computer I could record a new video on another.

With your support I can invest in a new computer and produce more fun, original content for you, my loyal subscribers and supporters. Without your support KopTalk.TV will fold if my existing computer dies on me.

These are the specs of the computer I am hoping to purchase:

27" iMac3.5GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz32GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM 4X8GB 3TB Fusion DriveNVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5Apple Magic MouseApple Wireless Keyboard (British)

Due to existing equipment and software that I have purchased for my existing Mac, and the fact that I don't have time to learn a new operating system and new software, I need to maintain the continuity by purchasing a new Mac. If I could I would invest in an even more powerful system but that would require further funding. This system should meet my needs and it should last for many years.

If I fail to meet the target, pledges are cancelled and not retained by Crowdfunder.


A £1 contribution is just as important to me as a £100 contribution. The fact that you've taken the time to read this project means a lot to me and a comment of encouragement and support on any of my videos is just as rewarding.

Please note if you pledge for a reward that has rewards of a lesser value above it, you will receive all of those rewards. For example, if you pledge £20, you will also receive the rewards for £1, £5, £10 and £15.
