Well, dear readers, I had a very impulsive purchase last night.
I bought this netbook:
Oddly enough I have zero buyer’s remorse because:
1. I have the money to buy it. I anticipate getting at least $200 in babysitting cash this month. Plus I am getting $200 from my new roommate. I did intend on using that for other things, but oh well. This is justifiable.
2. I semi-need one. My old desktop at home is lacking. Plus it’s a desktop–not exactly the most convenient piece of machinery. And traveling be fantastic with this little guy. :)
3. It’s a killer deal. My boyfriend J (aka: Tech Bargain Hunter) confirmed it was awesome. The total was $211, including $1.99 shipping and zero tax. Cha-ching!
4. I’ve wanted one for months. And I haven’t bought myself anything like this in a long time.
I kind of feel like a child justifying why I did something wrong to a jury of PF bloggers. No it wasn’t in my budget, and yes, that money could be used somewhere else, but I am okay with my purchase. Once in a while, it’s okay to buy something you want. ;)
