    Default Stop me from making an impulse purchase

    I'm so freakin' sick of my laptop. It's slow and it has a virus, which I don't know how to get rid of and it's embarrassing, (it randomly emails people from my address book adverts ) and it's annoying the crap out of me, but mostly.. it's slow.

    I want a new one.

    A lightweight one that I can carry with me to school. I don't carry this one, it's cumbersome, has crappy battery life and overheats.

    The problem is, I feel guilty dropping the amount of money necessary to buy a new one.

    But I'm ready to do it RIGHT NAO though (like in 30 mins)!!!! My frustration is taking over. STOP ME.

    Can you walk away from this and laugh, or do you REALLY need a new lap top?

    Do you know for sure that it's a virus, rather than that your email got hacked? What kind of email account is it?

    My yahoo account was hacked last year, so I had to change my password and security questions twice before I got rid of the hacker.

    It would be really upsetting to spend all that money, only to discover it was a hacker and not your laptop....

    I'm having trouble distinguishing my needs from my wants. They're too intertwined. Ideally, I'd like a free fix for this virus problem that does take too much time (which I don't have much of in the next couple of weeks, esp without a computer). The computer is required to do/turn in school work. But even if I got a fix, I'd still be wanting a laptop to bring to school. I dunno, I'm having doubts now.

    Both Yahoo and gmail. And I've changed my password a few times. It keeps hacking it. Anything else I can try?

    my impulse would be to buy it! but i don't know your money situation. if you can get your current one working i'd hold out on getting a laptop, if you can't than i'd buy it.

    Can't help you buddy. That would be like the blind leading the blind.
