I decided after debating it in my head it was time to just shell out the money for an upgrade.
I got a surface pro 3 along with some accessories, like a leather case, screen protector - and a logitech wireless KB and mouse because i heard the snap on KB (which is crazy expensive) aint all that great.
The reasons why I've not made much new art are due to a number or reasons:
1- this computer is 6 years old, slow - needs to be plugged in at all times.
2- there are wires everywhere... mouse, wacom, power chord... OMG fucking wires.
3- i cant get comfortable anywhere in this house with this thing.
4- because i am uncomfortable, it causes all kinds of computer related injury.
5- even with a wacom tablet, I'm stuck in a rigid world where i can't rotate and make sense out of what I am trying to do on the screen.
So all these reasons piled up made me pretty much procrastinate doing anything art related and it's been killing me.
I wish I had the money saved up or won $$ in the lottery to afford it, but I didn't. I'm broke!
I am the type of person that does not spend money I don't have.
What I do have is a decent credit history because I've been a responsible human, so I threw this upgrade on my CC card which is now closer than it has ever been to being maxed out, but "fuck it" - without this I am a sitting duck.
We only live once. I'm not gonna go another day wishing magical money is going to fall from the sky and save me.
I am so exited. Staples tells me I will get it TOMORROW - OMG
BTW does anyone want a pretty nice/barely used wacom tablet?
I bought it about 2 months ago for 70ish bucks, but I'd take $35 for it just to get someone using it that needs it.
I'd ship it anywhere USA with tracking.
Let me know - omg i cant wait to make new art
