27-YEAR-OLD Tom Logan has no possessions except a few clothes and a state-of-the-art Apple laptop, it has emerged.
Logan admitted his purchase of a £1,200 computer was unwise as he has recently lost his job and will in any case only use it for social media and Netflix.
He said: “When I was a kid it was all about having a cool bike.
“Now I am a grown man of almost 30, with decades of life experience behind me, it is about having a cool computer.
“I could spend less on a cheaper computer that does the same thing, and thus be able to afford hot food, but I would rather die.”
Logan’s computer boasts a 2.6GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, essential for sitting in cafes reading the BBC News website and buying cinema tickets.
He said: “To see me with my computer in Starbucks, you might assume I was some hot shit designer or the screenwriter of an Oscar-nominated film.
“Actually I sleep on a futon I got from a skip.”
Logan’s friend Wayne Hayes said: “I’ve told him he should sell it and get a cheaper computer, for example a chunky, robust PC of the type you get in libraries.
“Not because I care about him, but because I too am obsessed with technological one-upmanship and want to have the best computer in our social group.”
