    My Vaio broke about 2 weeks ago. I immediately started saving for a refurbished Macbook (the $799 variety), but I'm having trouble staying on course. I have about $400 saved up now, but with Christmas and all coming up soon, it seems like it will be too hard to do, and I need it by around Christmas time. Give me words of wisdom to keep me on the right track!

    $400 in 2 weeks ain't bad. Another 2 weeks will do it at that rate, giving you a great Christmas present.

    $300 of that was from selling my busted laptop and a jacket I have been meaning to for a long time...truthfully I've only been saving a week.

    keep looking at the apple site every day. That'll keep you on track :) Perhaps hop into an apple store or best buy or someplace with macbooks on display and play with one... that shoudl also help :)

    Oh just go into the Apple Store and use one for 15 minutes...you'll remember why you're saving. Just keep your eyes on the ball and you'll enjoy the prize.

    You won't regret it, the reward will outweigh the frustration :)
