    I want the new Western Digital HD TV as I have a lot of my files on external drive, saves running up the Mac just to watch some TV show.

    I have the same problem -- I don't have a lot of things I want, and those that I do, I probably already own.

    Ask for cash then, and save it in an investment account. Use it later to buy a car, pay for college, save up for a rainy day, or keep it around to keep growing and earning interest. The sooner you start, the more you'll have in the long term.

    Bonus: most kids don't think like this, and when word gets out that this is what you're doing, people might be tempted to give you even more to help you out ;)

    Camera, video camcorder, snowboard(if your interested)?

    Or have you thought about donating to charity to help the people who really need it, since you already have almost everything?

    I got a Sony camera for Christmas last year and a DVD camcorder to. The snowboard is an idea though.

    a new desk so you can set up all of your stuff and keep it organized, that is, if it isn't already.

    btwwwww the speakers idea that some one posted is a good idea, i got a new set of Sony speakers for my computer a couple years ago.

    Really? You have everything you don't need jack lol you have everything technology wise at age 14 but if you have to get something get a nice camera.

    Since you are 15 and you already have all that stuff how about asking for a donation to a charity in your name?

    That way some other young child can have some happiness in a time of need?

    Audiobooks are neat and you can download Opie and Anthony every day. Waddle-doodle, linger longer.
