The next generation of Macbooks is probably right around the corner.

iPhone4 later this year...

Put in a 6 month CD so that it's gathering interest, and forces you to wait until July to buy something...

Donate it to the local foodbank/homeless shelter...

Send it to your unemployed friend on MacRumors... :D

Take spelling lessons? Maybe a class to learn that the red underline under a word in a edit box does not mean it's "kewl"?

I don't know about me, but I think you should spend some of that money on a keyboard that has working "y" and "o" keys on it. Your current keyboard is clearly crap.

That's good. I'd maybe go for a print version of the forum rules. My favorite is #12.

12. Corrections. There is no need to point out another poster's spelling or grammatical errors unless you think it is causing confusion. Remember that not all members are native English speakers. Communication, not correctness, is our goal. Examples: Don't correct members who spell Mac in all caps or who call the iPod touch an iTouch.

You should really remember that not all members are native English speakers. When someone is too lazy and too inconsiderate to even try to spell correctly, it makes it very very hard for someone with less experience using the English language to understand it.

Have you ever tried to look up words that you don't know like "alot" or "gonna" in the dictionary?

How lazy have we become that everything is written like a text message?? What does everyone do with the "time" they save by abbreviating three and four letter words, or writing "to" when they obviously mean "too"? If we're lucky, they spend that time explaining to their kids that "ur" and "lol" are not words. The next time someone says "OMG" in a face to face conversation, I'm going to smack them in their mouth!

I apologize for the rant...so what's this about the new iPad?:rolleyes:

spend some on something you DO want and give the rest to a useful cause of your choice. I recommend giving to a group who helps people eat and give them shelter.
