Even I can say "No, that's too much."


And it's not messy time at work and silly coworkers...
And it's not me being fed up with politics...
And it's not me having too much work with translations...

Oh, shallow me!

No, it was for a lovely, simply adorable pair of shoes, but I decided that 135€ - $200 is a bit too much. Ok, for today. I might be abusing my card tomorrow, but not today. I am SOOOO PROUD. Oh, shallow me...

Onto another purchase - please, I need some advice. And since I know this is going to be EMOTIONAL, please, I'd really like to get a realistic/factual/rational answer to this question:

1.600€ ($ 2.400) 24'' iMac (yes, unfortunately, that's the running price in Europe...)
or
850€ ($ 1.300) Core 2 Quad PC?

Do tell, please!

Oh, and some pics from today shopping in Ljubljana - yes, a day without new shoes. LOL

If it makes you feel any better. I own a pair of hiking boots that I paid 269 for about ten years ago, so about 400 in today's prices.

Ok... I'll be there tomorrow.... first thing in the morning.

Hiking boots are different story - I also paid a lot for mine, but these are just.... lovely, parading shoes. :)

And it does make me feel much better. :)

Oh Lordie... You just opened it up for the "Mac vs. PC" endless slugfest in your journal.

ever since a turned off msn chat program turned itself on, signed in as someone who visited my home earlier in the year and invited her son for a chat, i decided that i would try mac and i have never gone back. i have less crashes and i hope more control over the programs on my mac.

beautiful photos!

Not anymore...... Intel in Macs did bring some nasty stuff as well - at least it's been in the news. :)

Be careful with Mac. First you have to ask yourself what kind of software you want to run and how much I want to pay for that. My colleagues say that it's hard to find "free" software.

I don't have a Mac but I want it ... it so fancy :)

Sep. 17th, 2008 09:28 am (UTC)
Ok.... note taken. So I need to be careful. LOL

I know it is fancy, but at this moment I'd prefer some fancy new equipment for my cam. Hmmmm....... it sounds like I've decided already. :)

I suspected that you were a bit of a shoe whore, but I wasn't completely sure having not read your LJ long enough. I personally just bought a new pair of "Simple" shoes on-line the other day. I like them because they're trendy enough AND made from recycled parts. Win? I just hope they fit, since no two makers seem to make the same size alike. Well, the same maker doesn't even make the same size alike (blergh).

And I LOVE my Mac. It just... works. I struggled with PCs for years both as a user and as a server administrator. There is nothing more disheartening than having to reboot nearly constantly to apply the latest patch or just change your background, it seems. Plus, I haven't really had many software issues, but maybe I'm just lucky. Compared to the Ubuntu that I run at work, the Mac seems like a virtual cornucopia of software!

Shoe whore... OH! :) And since I am a shoe whore, I never busy shoes on-line. I need to feel them and stuff like that. Oh.... I bought another pair today, not for 135, but for 130€. So win!

Hmm.... I really need to ponder on that Mac/PC issue.... I plan to buy it next month, so I'll do a whole lot of thinking and reading and comparing and alike...

Thanks, M! :)
