$1,000 for new Laptop

Postby -REC » Wed Nov 07, 2018 3:38 pm

My CFO thinks I need a Laptop to be able to work from home the two times a year she needs something outside my normal hours and she has given me a budget of $1,000 (I could probably go as high as $1,100).

I have no idea why she thinks this is a good idea or necessary.....and knowing her, if I point at it and say "I need that one" she'll buy it virtually no questions asked.

So what should I get with this new found opportunity?

I posted that to the wrong thread but that's fine...only like 2 people will read it anyways.

The laptop works pretty smooth. I played like 5 minutes of DoD last night just to see how it would go and it was better than any computer I've ever had.
