So, I will be graduating from professional school this summer and will be joining a firm in a major city in the fall. I think that I’ve finally reached the point where I need to do a tech-overhaul, and I thought I’d solicit some input on these boards.
Currently, I have an old school Razor phone and a laptop. The laptop is seven years old and the Razor barely still works.
I think that now that I’m graduating, it’s about time that I get some technology that is functional and that will help make life easier for me on-the-go. I will be making plenty of money, but I also don’t want to invest in expensive products that won’t carry their weight in usefulness.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
Smartphones: This is a must. Should I opt for an iPhone? The new Samsung? Blackberry? Thoughts here welcome.
Laptops: I’ve got a Macbook, and I’m thinking that I’m going to go PC this time. Am I crazy? It just seems like the current Macbook prices are outrageous. I only use the computer to surf the net and word process.
Tablets: First, are they really worth it? Are there better options than the iPad? Seem pretty steep in price.
Other things that I’m not even thinking about?
I haven’t really begun researching any of this, and I thought I’d just make a post to get some good starting input or reading materials.
