Decisions, Decisions.....

 I am in desperate need of a new computer, preferably a laptop upgraded with a Wireless capability. My old laptop is 8+ years old. Part of my "future grand plan" is to be more of a self employed type person and work from the comfort or my home or someplace with comfy chairs, coffee, etc. The portability of a decent laptop would be a big help in my search for additional income and extra work, not to mention me being able to just even connect to the internet at home, which is hard to do with the old computer.
I also really need to do work on my bathroom. It's far older than the lap top and even I'm getting grossed out by the tile work. I have some tiles falling off the wall and my attempts at tile repair, well, suck. I am not a very good Tool Belt Diva. I may have found someone to do the worst of the tile repair (rip off the tile, replace the bad drywall, put the tiles up, I can do the grouting and sealing).
I have just enough "extra funds" to purchase a laptop that suits my needs (I've been doing a ton of on line research). I can also just stick the money in my E-fund and do nothing!

I won’t make a decision until I come back from my holiday. I just wish I could win a few grand in the lottery so I would not have to worry about this, or have been better with my E-fund this past year! Ah well… Decisions, decisions.

Oh, that's a hard choice! Sounds like you are going to have to pick the "worse" of the two evils.

I'm a technogeek.

I vote for the laptop.

Dell, is the best by the way. BF still has his 10 year old Dell because he babies it (it has 512MB of RAM in it.. laughable.)

Anyway, Dell is it for me, unless you want a Mini laptop (aka Netbook, not recommended btw as your only computer) then I'd suggest HP.

I'm leaning towards the laptop.......and yes it is a choice between two evils!

Are the bathroom problems just aesthetic? If so, I would go for the laptop (I feel your pain, my laptop is almost 7 years old and dying a slow death).

But if not repairing the bathroom is going to cause further damage to the house (i.e. if it starts to leak etc), then I would say repair that to save yourself money down the track.

Definitely - laptop all the way, you just can't beat it's versatility!
