TIPS: Investing in a Computer

If you don't have enough money for both a television and a computer, it should be no competition -- get a computer. Not only can your Sim go job hunting, they can surf the Internet, play games or build on their budding writing career. It becomes slightly less important after a job has been found, but still quite useful.

Having a television does have its uses though. Unlike the computer, it's possible to exercise in front of the television. It's an excellent (and free) way to keep your Sims' health up.
