Despite being a self-confessed technology dinosaur (still not having a smart phone, still not on Twitter!), I seem to have accumulated quite a number of toys.
In 2011, I got the PSP and tablet. 2012 was the year of the Nintendo 3DS. Now in 2013, I’ve got the “itch” again.
I am thinking seriously about an Alienware Gaming Laptop.
My perchant for computer games is nothing new. It fell off the wayside when I took an interest in improving my personal finance, but man, it is back with a vengeance.
My 2003 NEC laptop has recently been refurbished and is running pretty well, but definitely not up to specs for the most recent computer games. I won’t even consider the Asus netbook for PC gaming.
I used to lust after Alienware PCs back in those days when I used to play quite often, but they were freaking expensive then. The prices have dropped quite a bit since then, but are still comparatively expensive.
Almost $2,000 for a laptop.
Someone talk me off the ledge, please.
Actually, the price is not what’s stopping me from going straight out to get it. Actually, come to think of it, I do have a track record for spending large sums of money without much remorse. J It is the fact that I already have two working computers and adding a third one to the mix is just so…wasteful and extravagant.
And if I didn’t just go and spend $100 to refurbish the NEC, I could probably hasten it to a faster demise, and get the laptop without hurting my conscience, but since I did…
Just don’t be surprised if the next post is titled “Guess what I bought?!!!”
