So tell me…

One of the things I’ve been dealing with lately is the result of a failed experiment, or a bad decision–not sure which.  I got a credit card and bought a new computer some time ago.  Then a got buyer’s remorse and decided to get an iPad Mini with Retina Display and have been Bluetoothing that to the iPad for writing.  Only now I think I would have been better served to keep the regular computer.  So the dilemma is whether to get a full-on laptop once I get the credit card paid off.  It’s one of those things I really want but can’t justify and can’t forget that they have these things in Los Angeles as well.

I think unless it’s for business, even the 400-500.00 a good white unibody MacBook would cost is wasted money.   Maybe I just need to get used to the new way of doing things and not so much saving them locally but doing so on a service like DropBox.  I just like the assurance of having a copy of whatever I’m working on, whether it be a movie or whatever else on a flash drive.  That way, even if DropBox goes down or becomes inaccessible for whatever reason, I can still get to my stuff.  See, the way I see it, you should always have at least three different places where you keep your files–the important ones anyway–that you update on a regular basis:  your local hard drive, an external hard drive or flash drive, and an online service.  Not terribly likely what all three are going to go kablooey at once.  This way, the ipad way, you have a copy maybe on the ipad (not sure even that is so) and one in the cloud.

Anyway, enough of that.  The truth is I don’t know what I want.  I might just get the white unibody one and still have saved about 400.00 over what I would spend of a new computer, so there’s that.
