    Sorry if this is the wrong section for this..

    Here is my situation.. I just got a new credit card.:mrgreen:

    And, I wanted to use it to buy a couple lenses and an external flash and maybe like a nice new case. I have a sony A300 btw. lol. so i was on sony.com priced out some lenses and stuff and then it hit me!. Since I dont have my own computer (share one laptop between siblings and parents) maybe i should get my own laptop. So i can use it for not just personal use but to have acces to my photos and be able to edit them when ever I want not always having to wait and stuff.

    So.. should i go with the lenses? I only have a 18-70 mm I was looking at a nice zoom lense and thinking maybe a marco lens and a flash, or I was gonna do one lense and a nice HD camcorder??or a nice new laptop. both were within a few hundred bucks of eachother
    What you guys think

    I don't think you should use the credit card.
    I would get a desk top computer and not a laptop.
    I would get the computer before I got a lens.
    That's what I think.

    I say get the one that would address your needs. Buying and spending for things you don't need, just because you can pay for it, is a bad spending habit. Good luck on your decision.

    Cheers!
