My laptop means a lot to me. I'm a designer and artist and without my computer I couldn't do what I do. About 8 years ago I had to sell my Macbook pro to pay rent and use a really crappy PC. It took years for me to gather enough funds to buy a new one so this baby is important to me. Having to use outdated software on an inferior laptop suuuuuuucked. It sucked so hard. I could have gotten a better PC laptop but I wanted to save for another Mac, I love mac's for design work I feel like there is nothing better. I treat my computer very gingerly and clean it often. I'm glad I am in a better place and don't have to consider selling my computer anymore to pay bills. You gotta do what you gotta do to get by, sometimes that involves selling things that you love.
