  • I feel like the more i earn and can afford flashier things, the less i want them. I have been pursuing a minimalist life recently and find joy when i can throw away things which i thought i couldn't live without. Not passing a judgement, but just wanted to share 🙂

      Amortized... just say “TC” like a normal Blinder. Amortized isn’t the right word for what you’re trying to say anyway.

      Amortized could be the right word if their salary is paid bimonthly and then they add lump sums from stock sales quarterly :p

      I’m not sure about that

      Amortize:

      verb
      past tense: amortized; past participle: amortized
      gradually write off the initial cost of (an asset).
      "they want to amortize the tooling costs quickly"
      reduce or extinguish (a debt) by money regularly put aside.
      "loan fees can be amortized over the life of the mortgage"

    MacBook Pro 13" 2.3 ghz 16GB 1TB for $2,349, no tax. Not a massive savings but $500 less than thru Apple. Also used new credit card with $300 cash bonus on $3k spending

      Why do you need that high of a spec?
      Nov 22
    • Cisco Infensus
      Don't think it's that high. I usually keep my machines 5-7 years (replacing a 7 year old MacBook Air). I do some ML work though on the side

      If you just need compute power for ML tasks, it’s more cost efficient to run a custom build at home (it can be headless, just SSH in when you need) or even just as-needed via AWS. Point being, I really think the main use for beefy laptops you’re describing is for non-technical artists and people doing intensive media work. It’s your money of course.. just my opinion.

      Buying anything non-Apple is always more cost effective ;). But really, seven years ago I thought 4gb ram and whatever CPU my MBA has was overkill for light home usage. Now it chugs while browsing Airbnb and other js heavy pages to the point where it's just easier using my work laptop. I'm hoping the bloat in webpage UX and general software has plateaued, but I wouldn't bet on it.

      I went for the 15" with similar specs. Couple hundred more for bigger screen, better CPU and a graphics card.

    • Google alumnius
      So, not really $400. Carrier locked and presumably attached to a plan?
      Nov 22
    • Intel AlbusD
      You can switch the carrier after a year and you can choose your plan. I currently use Verizon so works well for me.
      Nov 22
    • Google alumnius
      All the plans are shit though?
      Nov 22
    • Intel AlbusD
      Not too bad actually. I chose $45 for 4gb. You also get 2gb for $35.

      It's not as glamorous as a 4K OLED but when you see something you actually need 66% off it's like a little win.

    • Amazon / Engnutboy39
      $4.99, really? That’s nuts.
