Chicken Wings or Macbook Pro

I was planning on buying a new 15" Macbook Pro, but then I thought about all the chicken wings that I could buy with that money.

Chicken Wings
Pro: Spicy, satisfying
Cons: Messy

Macbook Pro
Pro: 15" screen, Mac OS X Lion
Cons: ~1,800 chicken wings for the same price (at least a years supply)

What do you all think? Any advice welcome.

Well that depends on if you like chicken wings and if they fulfill a need in your life that you don't need the MBP for.

Buy a used one and then buy half a years supply of wings. Problem solved for half a year.

Buy the MacBook pro and use it to look at pictures of chicken wings. If your really feeling spicy you could even create an iMovie of all the chicken wing pictures you find to the tune of the chicken dance.

Better yet, buy an iPad. Use the iPad to order chicken wings online. Watch a movie on the iPad while eating the chicken wings after they arrive.

It'd be great if you watched "Osmosis Jones." Movie about Bill Murray almost dying while on a quest to the chicken wing festival.

So true. When I'm not on the Big Island I'm near Buffalo. Wings in Buffalo versus wings anywhere else -- well, it's like a Macbook Pro versus an early Compaq with a 386SX.

This is true, ill trade my MBA for some Anchor Bar or Duffs anytime. Not my MBP though no chicken wing is worth that, unless its someone else's MBP

If you buy the chicken wings you're such a sucker. They've been riding on that same old recipe for years. I'm not buying a single wing until they upgrade the spiciness at least 20% and add at least one new dip--and matte not that junk glossy sauce they try to pass off as the real thing.

Well...
I'm not sure, but aren't chickens like starfish?
Cut off an arm and it'll grow another.
Just get a chicken or maybe an egg?

a years worth of chicken wings will spoil. MBP wont spoil. Use MBP to make youtube vids, sell ads, use earnings to buy wings..as you need em.

Go to Buffalo and order "suicide" wings. The only glossy thing will be your tearing eyes.

Oh. You're making a joke. Too subtle for MacRumors.

Have you considered KFC? Its sort of like chicken, but more readily available.

You can buy a couple live chickens for around 50 dollars.
They can lay eggs and turn into real chickens.. Infinite number of chicken wings for life!
plus you should have money left over for a refurbished MacBook pro.

That's OK so long as you understand that you're eating chicken outside the license agreement. It might vaguely look the same but doesn't have the same quality feel and if you get gastroenteritis, you won't get any support from chickens. If you've got client deadlines to meet when you're doubled over; you'll wish you'd paid for real chicken

This a good point ... location is critical. For Buffalo chicken wings, it would be a toss up for me. I grew across the river from Buffalo, and I know those wings. For wings on the west coast of Canada (where I am now) it would be the MBP hands down. Location of the wings needs to be considered.

Chicken wings are the main reason there will be no touch screen iMac.

I won't rest until there are electronic products that you can put in the dishwasher.

I bread my wings with cornmeal and whole wheat flour, 50/50 with some salt, and deep fry. Crunchy wings are better to me, and you can then dip them into anything you like. Another dimension.

I would go for the Macbook Pro. You can then go online and order chicken wings. Remember to get sauce on the side so you don't gum up that nice MBP trackpad.
