This is the ultimate computer gaming and workstation.
I chuckled a little when I read “workstation.”
Let’s be realistic, this computer chair/desk is all about gaming.
Here are the deets:
The Emperor 1510
- Stainless steel enclosure
- Three screens
- Surround sound
- Fully adjustable seat and leg rests
- Adjustable keyboard tray
- Inputs for both Mac and PC
- Recline up to 15 degrees
- Pick your color
Between $5,000 and $10,000 (depending on selected features).
Church & Ministry Budgets
- Do we make the wisest purchase decisions?
- Do we trick ourselves into making poor choices?
- Is our foundation for making decisions founded in truth?
Here’s what I mean.
You can justify just about anything, and if you talk a good tech game, you can talk over peoples heads in a heartbeat. It’s a pit fall that can be far too easy to fall into.
Take this gaming workstation, for instance. This is really far fetched, but they still put workstation in the title. Think about how much more productive you would be with this chair, right?
You can see that it is easy to unnecessarily upgrade Church or ministry tech to be cooler or benefit yourself regarding much more reasonable purchases.
I know, because I’ve stood in front of that apple tree and been tempted to take a bite.
How cool would it be to upgrade the graphics card on my ministry laptop, so I could play those cutting edge games when I’m at home? After all, I could use a little extra RAM when editing photos for the ministry … right?
This all comes down to good stewardship. I don’t support being cheap, but I don’t support being extravagant. I’m about good stewardship.
As Church Technologists, we can whine and complain about those old, out-of-touch board members who won’t let us replace our old, duct tapped sound board, or we can be pro active and always make sure we are being good stewards and responsible with the resources God has given us.
There are many Churches and ministries that need to change their ways and stop ignoring the tools of technology, so let’s make sure we are prepared and ready to be good stewards of what we receive, and not act like a 12-year old with a pocket full of quarters at the arcade. There’s no reason we can’t be well versed in making wise technology purchases before those board members change their ways.
Let’s make sure we’re ready.
