Does your company provide you with a computer or just reimburse you? I have been trying to get an upgrade that I desperately need and it's like pulling hens teeth. They keep putting me off. I don't want to front the expense for a work computer (even if I got to keep it in the end) because I don't need it for anything but.

Always provided for me, and I've worked at many different sized companies.


Yes. I have been provided a computer for all of my roles/companies. (4 companies from 100-100k employees).

how much are we talking about for a computer

We provide machines for everyone and for technical roles have found that upper-end ones (Dell XPS and MacBook pro) are worth the extra cost versus replacing or upgrading all the time. We also use third party tech support (Sugarshot).
There are security ramifications to allowing employees to using their own machines.

Anyone has experience negotiating a medical bill with MGH. I got some blood work done and was sent a bill of 1800. The bill was 2700 but negotiated rate with my insurance is 1800.

MGH says prices are higher as we are a teaching hospital. It's just open loot and does not make sense. Anyone dealt with a similar situation.

Thoughts on the London (zones 1 & 2) property market (flats or houses) in the next few years? I’m considering buying this year bc I’ve got £ for a down payment & could get a mortgage with a monthly payment same as my current rent, but I would maybe sell in a few years to co-buy a family home with my partner. I’m a bit concerned the market’s at peak now, plus stamp duty sucks. On the other hand, I read that property values are meant to go up 25% in 3 years, so maybe I should get on ladder now??
