The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
No impulse buying here. No sir.
So much for impulse buying. =\

The laptops that Rent-A-Center have are pieces of junk that they want lumps of gold for. They want $1200 for a Dell Inspiron 1100 or $31.99 a week for 12-18 months ($1535.52 - $2303.28).
Uh, no.

I found a sweet little deal on NewEgg for a good Acer laptop for less than $1000 after taxes, but the only way I could afford it is if I could make payments on it, at least for the first three months. I tried doing the BillMeLater with no payment for 90 days option, but they apparently refused me.

*sigh* So much for having a laptop without having a huge lump of cash to hand over.

*nod* Exactly why I said 'hunk of junk for a lump of gold'. The 1100 only has 128MB of memory and the rest is just as bad as well. The only redeeming thing is the 2GHz processor, but it being a laptop and all it probably eats the battery like acid on wood.
