    At the moment I'd combine that with the "much less than $10K in cash" I have and get a used BMW. ;)

    I'd buy myself a second Alesis Firewire Desk, some nice mics, a decent PA, a nice midi controller etc...

    All recoring gear, plus a nice pair of B&O BeoLab 3s... :)

    Well I have about $50K but it's all going on an extension for the house.:(
    I may be able to squeeze a 17" iMac in.

    Hm, assuming that you mean if I had $10k for computer stuff...

    Mac Pro
    4gb RAM (4x1gb)
    2x500gb HDD
    2xSuperDrive
    x1900 512mb
    2x24" ACD
    WiFi/BT
    -------
    $6620

    Also, for the wife...
    24" iMac
    +2gb RAM
    --------
    $2175

    MacBook, 2ghz model - $1300

    Which puts me about $95 over $10k, but I could get all of it with EDU pricing, or refurb a lot of it if I had to get to exactly $10k. :)

    Plane tickets for two to go to London during the first two weeks of July. Probably book hotel. Either save the rest for spending cash while there, or realistically? Probably get a new 8GB red Nano and assorted art/ photo supplies. :eek:
