I am a college student moving into a new apartment. I have a few dillemas as to which electronics to bring up to school.
Question 1: Should I bring a TV? If so, I was looking at the Dell 2005FPW
. I can get a refurbished one for cheap and use it as both an external monitor for my macbook, and as a television. Good idea? The only thing I am worried about is loss of productivity. There will be a community TV elsewhere in the house, but a lot of my friends say to me "What if you want to watch a movie with your girlfriend?"
Question 2: Which speakers should I bring? I own both the Altec-Lansing ADA885
4.1 THX surround sound system and the Behringer Truth B2031 Active Monitors
. I also have a M-Audio Firewire 410 for controlling and connecting the latter to the computer. I usually play music off my laptop or ipod, but if I have a TV, this could be a factor.
Question 3: Is there any other technological thing I really need for the apartment?
Kids these days.
