To loan or to save?
Computer Addict
My brother has recently got a new Dell computer on their loan system. In doing so, it's piqued my interest in a similar approach. I posted previously about saving up for some new items, one of which is a new computer. One option is to do the same thing that Steve did and looking to getting a new PC through Dell on their lease system, where as I would own it at the conclusion of the lease.

The current deals range between $18 and $30 per week, which is affordable, and means I can have a new PC now rather than wait 12 months before I have enough money to build my own.

While saving the money would mean I would have a more up to date PC, the Dell PC would mean I have the new PC now and can be done worrying about it.

My only concern is that their website doesn't allow the removal of certain items in the package like monitors or speakers, of which I have perfectly good ones myself. Additionally, will the fact that I can't modify the PC in anyway during the lease (add a HDD here or there etc) drive me nuts?

Question for Thorn; We've taken some video footage from The LAN on the weekend during our Starcraft Tournament. I have iMovie on my Mac and Adobe Premiere for PC. Which do you think would be the best program to put the bastard together?

I'm anti debt too, but even saving up a couple of hundred dollars is a tough ask for us atm.

The other problem is, as you know well from last weekend, that the case is dodgy, so that's another item to get...

The grant would be a great thing to have, but I barely had the time to do the indoor soccer website, so I don't think it'd be a good idea.
