Did you watch the news last night???
If you didn't you missed seeing the newest Apple Macbook Air being unveiled to the market. It says that it's ultra-portable, ultra-lightweight... ultra expensive too! hehehe
It's one of the two things I am eyeing at the moment, the other being the SONY VAIO FZ...
sooo gorgeous! But as I have told my hubby, it's one of those "nice-to-haves" that we can really do without.
Right now, my Compaq Presario 2200 may seem to be out-dated in terms of portability (its more than 2 kls. noh) and usage (don't know what happened to my once super-heavy duty DVD burner)...but then again, it serves the purpose of being able to connect to the net & keep my blogs updated, have my little boy's pictures uploaded into several websites I have maintained. It's serving it's purpose! And who needs another one? Of course, if money is not a hindrance, who doesn't like all the fine things in life? But we do have moments wherein we have to be "practical" about our expenditures.
And having a baby (actually a big baby now) to take care of is such a big eye-opener in terms of our spending habit. I have to curb my usual mall-rat ways...It's easier not to shop if you don't go out in malls often. It saves on gas...saves on meals & of course unnecessary purchases. But I do have to find ways of avoiding the uber-cutie outfits being sold online. When it comes to my tiny tike, I always splurge...Nevermind if this would mean mommy herself won't be getting the newest "cool" gadget there is.
Ahhh, motherhood!!! It really does change everyone, including me...
