    Wow! It's outstanding how one can receive laptops every birthday.
    Have you told her you didn't need any more laptop?
    Or is she too stubborn to see it annoys you?

    @F1973 @neeno @Berkmann18 @AleCx04 oh god not regularly, once every ~4 years. mid tier however, $450-$550. if my family could afford that i'd probably just buy my own laptop.

    @calmyourtities That's better but still, why not spend more on one that will last longer than that?

    @calmyourtities hm.

    I wouldn't say irrational. They're caring.

    Honestly, I'm a bit triggered. Paying a laptop - even in the 200 $ range - is a lot of money, like - a mfugging lot - depending on job, income and debt.

    I don't want to judge... But please. Think about that.

    @IntrusionCM My first proper laptop was a 700€ Dell and it's been falling apart since year two. It's on its fourth year now and I'm just waiting until some vital component croaks, I don't even want to know how bad the cheap laptops are in terms of manufacturing quality.

    @sudo-woodo yeah.

    But I think you understood my comment?

    Sometimes it's more giving a thought about how (!) someone made it happened instead of the value.

    It's a very personal thing - but maybe appreciate the thought and the care more instead of being focused on the value?

    @IntrusionCM Wow yeah, It's 2 AM and I totally misunderstood your last comment, my B.
