Financing a computer is
dumb. If it's only a grand, and you were going to finance over a year, surely you can just save what you need over the next few months. With a big house in Cali, you must pull in enough every month that saving $1000 won't take long, if you make it a priority. By financing you're just padding the bank's pockets. You might as well put your paycheck through a shredder. Unless you're so deep in CC debt and overburdened with mortage payments that every dollar is already budgeted. In which case, you need to take care of first things first, and not even think
about accumulating more debt.
