Needs VS Wants

At the beginning of the school year, I was told it was essential for me to buy a laptop to succeed in my classes. Many people around me recommended to buy an apple product. ┬áSo I went and bought a MacBook on the same day, and felt horrible for spending 1500 dollars on it. I mean yes, having a MacBook is great but I could’ve just bought a tablet and attached a keyboard to it. I realized this a couple days into the semester, when I saw a lot of other students working on tablets or other devices. I thought about getting a refund and exchanging it for a tablet, but I already got used to the laptop. Now I have mixed feelings about spending a lot of money on this laptop, I could have spent it on different/more important things.
