Laptop Purchase; to or not to
With the start of classes, and an English Composition class at that, I've once again become very tempted to buy a laptop. I mentioned this to my sister and she has agreed to try using her credit to help me out here, since BillMeLater, at least at NewEgg, has a 90 days no payment no interest option. I have $90 a week coming in from the business and if I put $60 of that toward the bill I could have it paid off in a little over three months. If I wait the 3+ months to save it up this semester will be almost over by then.

Not only would I like it for school but I'd love it for around the house as well. If I could lay on the couch and work or lay in bed and code, I think that'd be really great. No more slaved to the desk and sitting in the chair to be on the computer.

The desire to have a laptop (it's pretty much my biggest desire, at least as far as monetary things go) and do those things is really warring with my desire not to get in debt. I know I could pay it off but that's isn't really a "smart" thing to do. But I want it! >_<

So. Is it really worth it, or am I just rushing it?
