So instead of blowing $2,000 on the latest and greatest Macbook Pro, I bought an old G3 iBook that does exactly what I need it to and invested the left over $1,700 in a CD at 5.00% APY. I'm actually planning on selling my old eMac and putting that money into another CD once my first one matures. What about everyone else? Do you guys invest? Real estate? Property? Mutual funds? IRAs?
