Default Re: should i get this laptop?

Iím wondering if I should go ahead and get this cheaper laptop for backup/on campus/share with kids since the chromebook broke. I can buy a 3 yr accident warranty for $70 and it comes with a 4 year extended warranty. I donít know if Iím just getting impatient since I still donít have a laptop or if itís a logical buy. https://www.costco.com/hp-14%22-lapt...100568642.html
Might be wise to get a share with the kids laptop so they donít try to use my big, nice, school one

It feels yucky to spend $1200 on computers in a month but I donít expect to buy anymore for at least 3 years and Iíd have one before exams next week

I think it is reasnoble for the children to not use your school computer. So yes I think it is reasnoble to get a second one to share with them. (Hug) it seems like a lot but if they need a computer it makes good sence to have one for them.

As to whether that computer is a good buy, I have no idea, hopefully some one who knows more about computers can help with that.

Default Re: should i get this laptop?

I think Iím going to get it. It looks decent. For $560 including taxes & shipping I know it will last at least 3-4 years no matter what. Iím reading people online say their hp ship dates keep getting pushed back and Iím already really missing being able to do school work in the bedroom. I donít want to stress of my other laptop gets delayed. I guess I could wait for a good sale but for the piece of mind, having it in my hands by Thursday...it just seems reasonable. And my husband isnít home spending $$$ he spends $500 on nicotine and junk every 2-3 months so Iím just making up for him not spending money

Everytime a child interacts with technology the chance if it breaking is higher than an adult, even it simply because they are growing and there brains don't always know where there lems end.

You really need to have a working computer for school.


(Hug) I am glad that your dh isn't spending so much of the budget on him self so that you can do things for all of y'all

Itís here! Next to my chromebook for comparison! I somehow missed the upgrade screen isnít a touchscreen but I think Iíll get used to it. if I use it for photography, Iíd much rather have the superior image than the touch screen benefits. Even just to edit family photos better.

Yay! Congrats!

My dh is a photographer and that looks like the difference between his main work laptop and mine. Happy Editing!

Thatís good to know! I havenít had time for pictures in about a year! Iím hoping to do some new pics after summer school and through the fall. I like to do documentary style pics of the kids.
First world problems- now the internet is sketchy but thank goodness I have a laptop so I can go do my tests at work! I wouldnít feel comfortable downloading the test browser on my work computer and linking my phone as a webcam and all that. Internet tech will be out this evening or maybe Monday as the time keeps getting pushed back. They already came out last week and replaced some card down the road. I replaced the modem. Wires look ok the fastest option is 7 mobs so Iím used to slow....but this is crazy!
