Last year, I sold my laptop computer because of financial reasons. We needed money and the only way to have one without compromising the family's future budget was to sell my laptop.
Now, I am planning to buy a laptop again. I need to have one so that I could be more mobile. In case of emergency, I could always pack-up my main source of income and leave immediately. So now, instead of saving for a Nikon D3000, I will buy a laptop or a netbook. This must be my first priority!!
