Materialism at its finest…

Okay, so for the past few weeks I’ve really been trying hard to be good. I’ve been attempting to not spend money on gadgets, not spend money on frivalous things. I even disconnected my Vonage phone line (sorry DP, you’re still connected) and got rid of my NetFlix account as well (sorry Tool, we’re still on for Terminator 3 this Friday though). So in this time of great consternation of trying to pay off my car, my school loans and a little bit of credit card debt, I started looking at the IBM web site, specifically at Think Pad T42’s. I went through and customized the one that I liked and the price came out to be about $3250. I would sell both of my desktops and my monitor (though I think that I would keep the Bluetooth Mouse and Keyboard) and maybe even be willing to part with my 3rd generation iPod…maybe not 🙂
So here is what I found… an IBM Think Pad T42, 2.10 GHz Pentium 4 765 processor, 15″ TFT with 1600 x 1200 resolution, 128 MB video card, 1 gigabyte of memory, 60 gigabyte 7200 RPM harddrive, bluetooth, 802.11a/b/g, gigabit ethernet, and an extended life battery (lasts about four hours, eat that Dell!). It can be accessed on the IBM site at: Click here.

  1. Ahhhhh… the urge to be materialistic. It reminds me of a quote, “The things we own, end up owning us..”… I too my friend have fought hard to fight away the urge to spend money on frivalous things. I feel your plight.

    OK, that got way too serious.. Did you buy it yet?
