Yesterday evening I was also overcome by a sudden desire to research mobile computing devices. It started out as a simple search for cheap laptops, but then I thought, "Wait a minute. It'll take me ages to save up enough money even for the saddest of these; what if I got a tiny netbook or a tablet computer as a temporary solution?" Ten minutes later I was obsessed with comparing ALL OF THE TABLETS to figure out which features I absolutely needed and which I could do without, and then find the best among the affordable ones that fit the bill. Netbooks turned out to be a dead end, being almost as expensive as the cheapest full-sized laptops.

I very nearly ordered a freaking tablet computer on the spot, though. It would have resulted in forced starvation for the rest of the month, so I'M GLAD I DIDN'T. >_> What saved me was none of my favourites being available in a size larger than 7", combined with one of the best not being released until four days from now. (I could have preordered it, but a) not released yet means no reviews; b) seven inches.) If any of them had been 8", which is probably still quite small, I swear I might have ...

So I closed all those tabs and mourned the loss of a perfectly fine two or three hours. Ahem. But the temptation persists: once I've actually put €100 aside, I'm sure I'll go through the exact same process again. XD
