    So many toys, so little money.

    Anyway, a list of stuff I want to buy this year.

    1. AppleTV
    - streaming High Def movies is the biggest draw, since I don't plan on buying HD-DVD or Blu-Ray until there is a clear winner. Plus, I really hate burning vacation photos to DVD just to watch a slideshow. Having it stream would be sooo nice!

    2. Nintendo Wii
    - if I can find it!

    3. mac pro
    - Most likely 8-core version with 2-4GB of RAM. Photoshop CS3 would put me over the edge, otherwise I could wait until early 2008.

    4. Bose Triport Headphones
    - I tried these Bose headphones at an Apple reseller, and was blown away. Really comfortable too.

    This is all I really want for this year. As you see, I'm pretty easy to please. :)

    All I want is money. If I buy any more toys, I might as well work at Apple for free.

    1. Ship of the line with full 72 cannon compliment.:D

    2. 37inch 1080p native LCD TV and GeForce 8800GTS for my gaming rig. The TV would also be for HD television in my room.

    3. iPhone

    4. 12-15 dbi omni-directional antennae for my network

    5. Fix the A/C in my car before summer.

    I think the 1st one would be really cool but unfeasible. While the others are definitely doable.

    I'll be honest with you, I'd recommend against Bose products in general. The TriPorts sound OK and are decent as far as Bose products go, but I'd steer you more towards the Sennheiser HD line (the HD555s or the HD595s, specifically). For the $150 the TriPorts cost, you can get much better quality sound and richer aural experience from a non-Bose brand.

    I have a pair of the HD515s that sound just as good if not better than the Triports for far less money, and while they're larger in size, they feel far more sturdy than any pair of TriPorts I've ever put near my head.


    As for my list of "wants" this year, most of it is software (Yojimbo, SmartBackup) and Wii games. I'd love to pick up an iPhone, but I don't know if I'll be able to justify the cost of the data plan after dropping $500 on the phone itself.

    Oh, yeah, and an iMac to replace my PowerBook would be a full-on delight as well.

    Top of my list is a new MacBook Pro.

    (Sennheiser is a great company too. Great customer service. I'd buy from them again just because of the service I received once.)

    1) '24 Imac with 2 or 3 GBs of RAM - just have to figure out from whom.

    2) GPS system for my car - probably Garmin 360 or 660 Nuvi.

    3) New, improved beanbag chair! http://www.sumolounge.com/ (And I'd take the blonde in the picture too if she came with it. :D )

    4) Lasik eye surgery.

    5) Maybe an IPod.

    Nothing much other then that. :)

    This is purely personal preference and I bought and demoed a lot of headphones before I chose the Bose QC2's. I still think they are the best headphones on the market.....personal preference!!

    Of course it's personal preference :) If he/she really wants the TriPorts, it's not my place to stop them, but I wanted him/her to be aware that, IMHO, there are cheaper headphones that sound much better than TriPorts. But you're right, headphones are definitely all about personal preference.

    Hmmm...

    Hopefully gonna get a 13" planer this year, and the stuff to build myself a nice router table. I'd also like to pick up a couple new pieces of cookware, and there's a few bottles of wine out there that I'm coveting...

    The other items I'm looking to get this year I cannot mention or I will get flamed / start a flame war.

    Ultra-portable MBP (if it comes out...) or White Macbook
    I'll be starting high school and my sister can be a pain with wanting to play Club Penguin (and flash games, etc.) a lot on the computer. Also, the iMac is in the family room with the TV on, much commotion, etc. Having a laptop to bring to my quiet room would be great for concentration.

    New Cell Phone
    I'm sticking with T-Mobile, and I'm looking at the Blackberry Pearl or the soon-to-come Rizr. You can't beat T-Mobiles prices for the kind of plans I want.

    M-Audio Keyboard
    I'm not sure about this one. I'd like to use it with GarageBand, but I don't know if I'd use it enough to spend $100+ on it.

    Spending Money
    Like for going to the mall, going out to eat. I need a job. :p

    I'll just stop now, I'm probably sounding greedy. :)
