Since you are just beginning your diving adventure they'll be plenty of time to spend money and you should concentrate your resources on building a solid foundation of quality equipment, before you get into unecessary items like computers. Get yourself a solid mask and fins [ if you don't already have them. Then get yourself a quality BC, I would suggest a BP and wings, then add a quality regulator, look at the ScubaPro MK 20 G250 and an R190 as a back up. Then look to a quality wetsuit/drysuit and then a tank.. Those are the basics and will allow you to enjoy diving without having to go to a shop and rent gear and then return the gear. This will help keep you active while all the while you will have been planning your dives, understanding the founding principles of the tables and gaining a feeling for NDL's. Furthermore, most newer diver's generally run out of air before they run out of available bottom time so spending $300 or $400 on computers at this point is unnecessary and not the wisest use of economic resources..
