Gift done

Well, I have today off. I went into the electronics store and bought the BF's gift. I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted in the stores where he lived. I’m shipping it to him. With shipping, taxes, etc. I spent about $130. I hope he likes it. But boys and electronics seem to get along pretty well.

While in the store I also looked at the laptops. $800 is about right for what I wanted. I’m only half way to that amount (you can see on my side bar). However, I will probably be needing this laptop sooner than later.

I’m debating what to do. Ideally, I want to save up the full $800 before I buy it. However, I do have the room to take it out of my savings. Also, if I am to leave my job soon (likely), I will be spending a lot of time on it, sending out resumes and cover letters etc. I need to have a setup that will make it as enjoyable (less painful) as possible. The old computer with the broken keyboard just won’t cut it.

I'd buy it as an investment for now esp if you have the savings and it's not on credit card

You just plain need it.. it's not a pair of pants so :)... go for it!

Thanks for coming by - added you to my reader

Fabulously broke,
You are right. It is more of an need than a want now. I think I will put in whatever money I can into it and buy one when I get back from vaca.
