SON DEMANDS A SURFACE PRO LAPTOP FOR SCHOOL CAUSE IT MAKES HIM LOOK COOLER

I am curious why many students buy such expensive laptops.

My son came to me earlier today asking for a Surface Go or Surface Pro laptop. He said the reason he needs it is to look cool in front of other students. He is studying a course that does not requires a powerful or expensive laptop.

Well obviously I said no and he is begging me for it.

Personally, when I was studying my parents support me and pay for food and school college, but I still try to minimize their costs.

I bought a used business laptop for $200 when I went into uni and it’s worked perfectly the whole time I’ve been here, with the exception of having to replace the battery once for $40.

I understand that some majors are required to have higher-end laptops, and that completely makes sense. But

I’ve seen students in my economics and political science classes have expensive laptops that aren’t necessary. Even my colleauges have MacBooks that they bought new and they support themselves entirely and have majors that don’t require expensive laptops.

I don’t understand the reasoning. Is just a want, or is there more of a purpose of having such a pricey device?

Does it help you do better in school?

Here are what netizens think:

  • Same reason people have $1k phones when a $200 phone would work 90% as well for most tasks.
  • It’s more like: “Why do people who earn very little buy expensive things that doesn’t provide much more utility?”
  • Don’t spoil him, tell him go work part time and earn himself if he wants stuff.
