Choosing a Computer

Posted on Jul 19 2009

When I think about all the different ways that I make money, one thing is clear. No matter what I am doing, I am using a computer. I buy and sell stock with my computer. I write for my blogs on my computer, I do my accounting work on my computer. I run almost every aspect of my business from my computer. So when it comes time to choosing a new computer it is not a decision that I take lightly.

With every new computer purchase there are decisions to be made, laptop, desktop, or maybe even a netbook computer? Mac or PC?

Should I look at Linux?

So far I have resolved these issues by having one of each. I use my desktop for every day work in my office. My laptop computer is my constant companion on my travels. I can get a lot of work done while waiting for an airplane. (Future blog post, airports with free Wi-Fi!) And when I just need to get out of the office for awhile I take my little netbook to the coffee shop where I can watch the people while I write.

So what does all this have to do with getting rich? Getting rich is not just about making lots of money. It is about spending your money wisely and having the right tools. My computers are my main tools for making money. When it comes time to buy a new computer, it is important for me to buy the right machine at the right price.

Right now I am seeing some good deals on laptop computers. One of the good things about a recession, is if you need to buy something, you are going to get a bargain. When I buy my next laptop, I don’t want just a cheap price, I want a great laptop at a fabulous price.

This is where I depend on sites like Shopwiki. It is a wiki site for shopping. Today I started with their Laptop Computer Buying Guide. It gave me a great starting point for choosing my next laptop computer. I particularly liked their “top picks”.

Bottom line, rich geeks are not just into making money, they are also into smart shopping.
