    I had recently obtained my college bursary (£200 per half term) and I was thinking if it would be acceptable to spend the money on a pc because I would need a better one or a laptop later on in my computing course. If I had to justify buying a computer with the money, do you think they would accept a reason like that? If not, what other sensible objects would you recommend me buy?

    I think a PC is a perfect use for bursary tbh. If youre afriad, say youre using microsoft office on it.

    Wait until December when you have £400 to purchase a worthwhile laptop / PC / whatever you're interested in.

    I spent £1200 on my pc which included bursary (which was only £100 so half of what you got), and duty money.

    £200 alone won't get a good PC, it'll barely get a decent processor :erm:

    I'm guessing you may have some money saved up?

    Wait until you get £400-£500, get a decent PC. Plenty of good deals on unusually high specced ones too, don't be too eager to blow it all on something average
