Why You Should Buy Computers With Cash

My computer broke down in 2004, and I just had to have a new computer, with a price tag of $1,500.

Why $1,500? That's how much I got financed!

So, I got the stupid thing, and not reading the fine print, I've been paying over 30% interest for five years! The bill has never been below the original $1,500 because of late fees and payments over the years.

I realized that over five years, I have paid for that $1,500 computer at least 10 times! Talk about stupid tax!
