A Laptop or a Keyboard?

THANK YOU to those who left comments about my confusion whether to buy a laptop or stay with my desktop. As I mentioned before, the money to buy this laptop will be coming from my pro-blogging income.

My daughter is taking piano lessons and her first recital is mid-December. The keyboard she has right now came from her grandmother and it only has 36 keys.

The teacher told me recently that I need to buy the real one if I want her to be good at it. A keyboard is going to costs me minimum of $600+ unless I could find a used one.

So now my question is whether to buy myself a laptop? Or buy my daughter a keyboard? Sad to say, I can only afford one!

if you still have a working computer, maybe get a full keyboard first coz patricia would need it to practice for her december recital. although a new laptop would be nice too.

Desktop is good for heavy duty especially storing pictures, grabbing opps, blog hopping and dropping of EC. Good luck, sana maka decide ka. Sounds like you're getting there to buy a computer.

This is one of those hard parenting things. I hate to say this, cause I know how hard you've worked, but if I were in your shoes I'd buy the keyboard! Augh, the pitfalls of having children ;).

Jo, bibili din kase ako ng computer para dalhin sa pinas. Meron kaming nakita parang laptop sya. Built in na lahat ang CPU and CD drive sa monitor . Bali monitor, wireless mouse and wireless keyboard lang lahat.

Hi Evi,
Mukhang ganoon na nga ang mangyayari... which means I have to work double hard on SPs para makuha ko din ang gusto ko.

Hi Raquel,
Naku, I almost walk out with a laptop na nga when we were browsing... I saw the computer you were describing, it still eats up space. Pero maganda nga din yun.

Hi Tintin,
Yes, it seems like my daughter will get what she needs! I'm a frustrated pianist... and I wanted her to be very good at it. Thanks!

Maybe you can buy the keyboard for now since you still have a desktop. You can start saving fresh for a laptop in time for Christmas. Who knows, maybe Santa can grant you one. :)

Hi Rach,
How I wish! I guess that's my only solution for now...

Great blog!
But that isn't a good question for me....because I would say, "Buy the laptop and ditch piano. Soccer is cheaper!" ha!

Hi Valreegrl,
Hehehe... but she doesn't like soccer!
