    My friend recently won one of those scratch lotto thingies and got $400. He has no idea what to buy(he will prolly save it), what I want to know is if you had $400(give or take 20 on a product) what electronic/computer related product would you buy(SAVING IS NOT AN OPTION)?

    I'd probably try to get my soul back from Nermal and his gang of merry moderators.

    as many shares of Apple Computer stock as i could, before they release any Intel based Macs.

    i couldn't buy a mac with it and i am happy with the one i currently use, even though it's not new, but my pc is really, really outdated so i would buy a cheap pc tower and use it along with a monitor, keyboard, and mouse i have stored in the garage

    an ipod would be great but i really don't listen to music that much, but i am a musician so when i feel like music, i just play my guitars...when i do turn the radio on, it's abc news radio

    if i could find a used mac mini for 400 dollars, that would be great, but i have not seen that many for sale since it's still a new product and people are still hanging on to theirs
