Balancing expenditures-- computers vs cameras
As those who have read my other thread know, I am thinking about buying a new laptop and considering upgrading from my usual budget priced clunk of a writing laptop for something sleeker and more photo oriented.
It wasn't long before I discovered that this was going to cost big money, money that might eventually have gone for that Fuji X-T1 body I have an eye on for use with my manual lenses. Heck, if I get the laptop configured the way I'd like it, I could probably add a nice Fuji prime to go with it.
How do I balance my expenditures between computers and optics, particularly as a JPEG shooter who might not need the computer firepower that a RAW shooter does?
(The laptop will not be my only computer-- by the time I buy I will also have a new Win 7 desktop system with a fair amount of power in its own right and a very decent, though not utterly fabulous, monitor.)
