When you spend a lot of time bouncing around online, you come across some great stuff. But most of the time, it’s not the right time to buy. So you get a backlog. Here’s mine.
I seem to have a thing for cheapo laptops and this one has a drool-worthy IPS screen similar to the one on the MacBook Air 11. But I recently picked up a cheapo Windows 10 model for travel. And I’m typing this article out a Chromebook I already own. Do I need another? Not … yet.
Been procrastinating this buy for a while — while my old North Face shell fully disintegrates. Every time I wear my North Face jacket, flaking waterproof membrane follows me in a cloud. Maybe I’ll finally pull the trigger on this guy from Patagonia this spring. It’s on sale right now.
A built-in Roku would mean one fewer item on the shelf. And 40″ is a bit bigger than my current TV. Almost picked one up in the name of Super Bowl. Maybe next year.
People love this thing. I’ve never tried it. I’m a pour-over guy. But maybe I could be a convert? Problem is my last pour-over cone was like $6. That price is anchored in my mind and $36 seems like a splurge!
Every guy should have a solid blazer, right? Well, I’ve got three currently. This one just seems … more solid? I need to blazer-up more often and “accidentally” stain one beyond repair.
This guy is $400 off right now, so it could be time to buy. I’ve got an aging “good” laptop that’s just about ready to phase out. Problem is, I’ve had an influx of cheap laptops that do a good enough job nearly always, so that guy barely gets any use (see #1). Do I spend $600 to replace a thing I’ve already nearly replaced? Someday, right?
There’s a reason I don’t have Amazon Prime — impulse buys are too easy. This guy may find his way into the cart during my next Amazon run. TBD.
My Moto X and I are getting a little jealous of all the iPhone peeps out there with their cool fingerprint sensors. Sure, maybe bio-metrics aren’t actually all that secure. Maybe it’s a gimmick to play to our Hollywood-influence version of the future. Still want one. But my Moto X has been bouncing off pavement for over two years now and is still crack-free and fast. I don’t know what I’m going to do.
I’ve nearly impulse-bought one of these maybe a dozen times now. A $50 tablet?!?! I need one! Do I need one? Not yet.
A man can dream, can’t he? I want this $5,000 chair. I want to sit on it with my butt.
