I will be paying my car off in a couple of days and now all of sudden I have this urge to buy a computer. I can
pay it off in about four months with the money that I will be saving from having no car payments. I will put it
on my DH Best Buy account that is 18 months interest free. Do I deserve this!
Someone talk me out of this.
We can sit around and calculate that that $1000 computer now will be worth $8000 30 years from now, but if that is all we ever do, what will happen? We'll die with a hoard of money and didn't enjoy life.

I figure that money isn't worth earning if you don't spend some to enjoy life. But I wholeheartedly agree that your finances should be in order, and you're able to afford your computer.

No doubt. But the poster wanted to be talked out of buying the computer. ;-)
