    Using what service did you attempt to buy the coins? You'll need to set up a wallet of some sort in order to receive/send bitcoins, if bitcoin core is too complicated there are simpler wallets available (such as a mobile wallet on your phone). – chytrik Jan 27 '18 at 4:18
  • yes well I just read if you have an older laptop...it wont sync...thats what the app on my laptop says....weeks it will take weekds... – Unique Monique Jan 30 '18 at 3:43

You can download bitcoin-core from here

But it's not highly recommended since you may need to download the whole blockchain.

What I recommended as an alternative is Electrum since you can use public bitcoin servers without downloading the whole blockchain

  • Is highly recommended if you can run it, it is the reference client but, it requires downloading the entire blockchain. – Willtech Jul 17 '18 at 22:01
