In 3 weeks time i will be once again off to college. Now a sophmore I have a house with 5 buddies. The big question is ofcourse, what TV and how are we going to pay for it. Heres my question, is something like renting a TV a bad idea? Something like Rent-a-center would prolly get us a better TV then us all chipping in and buying one. We have decided to allocate about 800 bones towards a TV would we be able to get a better one by renting? We want it big and new ofcourse.
