    If you really want my opinion, invest it, save it, or give it to a cause that's near to your heart. But if you want to know about computer buying, well, that's a different question. ;)

    i'll take a "wild" guess and assume that he's talking about $2K for a computer setup...but other than that, i don't know where to begin...for home? for office? mobile? can you give us more info?

    Buy an iMac G4 for about $500 & then get some JBL creatures & then buy with the leftover ~$1400 an iMac (core duo).

    Or, you can buy 20 iMac G3's.

    Or 1 MacBook Pro.

    Or 10 JBL speakers, and 10 iMac G3's.

    Or 1.5 Mac Mini's with no display.

    Or 6 Dell Dimension PC's with the 15" flat panel poop grade.

    Or 2 20" Cinema Displays with no computer, just for decoration.

    Or 1 PowerMac G5.

    Or 300 Performas.

    Or 10 PowerBook G3's.

    Or iPod's.

    Etc, we need details.

    Do you like the clean look?
    Do you need portability?
    Is that a solid $2000 or can you be flexible?
    Are you a Pro user?
    What will you do with it?
    Do you like silver or white?

    Unless you absolutely NEED a new computer right now, I would leave it in
    the bank until August.

    If I had a $2000 windfall, I'd pay off my credit card debt and buy a new car stereo head with the money left over.

    A lot of good quality advice so far...

    I'd say a wait until the macbooks come out to make a decision.

    it depends on what you need, desktop, moble, and how long you can wait.

    Can yuo wait til fall? if you can, you can wait til january, get a comp with merom and leopard... my two cents

    Not a bad idea, I'm sure this guy wants to buy a computer of some sort (I have to read his mind).
