I am contemplating purchasing a new computer in the new year. The laptop I am using currently is less than two years old (I bought it January '07) but it is just not that great. Regrettably, it was an ill-advised, hasty purchase. My old laptop - the sweet Toshiba that was faithful to my brother and I for so long - breathed her last breaths just days before my second term of third year began. I was in a pickle and needed to get a new laptop ASAP, so I basically purchased the first "good deal" that I saw. Now, less than two years later, I am regretting that decision.
So, here I am asking for your advice, opinions, thoughts and suggestions. Should I go ahead and buy a new computer? Should I hold out until this one is no longer functional? Laptop? Desktop? Mac? PC? Leave a comment to let me know what has/has not worked for you, and whether or not you have any advice when shopping for computers.
