Would you rather have a decent car and a crappy computer or a nice computer and a crappy car and why? Yes, answering this questions one of two ways will confirm your spot in the book of nerds. I hate to say it but as cool as having a nice car is, as long as it gets me where I need to go I'd rather have a nicer computer and a crappy car than a great car and a crappy computer. Obviously the best of both worlds is ideal but that's not the question. For the sake of the poll I've put dollar amounts on your options so it's clear what you are selecting from. You have $3,000 to spend on a car AND a computer. How do you split it up? I say $3,000 as your total budget because with much more it would be way to easy to split it up, given the price of computers these days.
