help me…

… deal with the guilt of asking for a new laptop.

justify this to me.

really.

I mean, I’ve earned some cash over the years, but nothing substantial. And nothing saved, it’s all gone back into the household funds, as it should. For termites, new car payments, etc.

really.

so WHY am I feeling so guilty about asking for a new laptop? And possibly getting it?

argh.

SO fricking Catholic. Or Scottish. I’m not sure which.

bleah.

  1. I find that rationalization is my best friend.

    You use your laptop to do your writing.
    A new laptop will come with a warranty.
    A new laptop will be in better mechanical shape than a used one.
    A new laptop will be helpful for your husband, who also uses it — right?
    A new laptop will be better able to run new software.
    A new laptop may come with additional handy features, such as wifi and faster processing.
    Traditionally speaking, “get the best computer you can afford at the time” is good advice.
    You can use graphics and other programs that help you boost creativity and employability.
    New laptops tend to be lighter and more transportable than older ones.
    The new one is only a couple hundred dollars more — a good investment (remember that warranty!).
    If you fix one expensive problem on the old laptop, it may sprout another one due to wear on its components.
    You really want a new laptop. Admit it.
