View Full Version : I'm Going to Buy This

Once the tax returns come in...

I buy my ultra-snazzy T.V.

Sharp Aquos 13 inch (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?j=1&skuId=6578615&type=product&productCategoryId=pcmcat31800050026&id=1077630669270).


My GameCube is going to love that T.V.. I think I'll enjoy it as well.

I'm going to buy it for college. I'll be going to school across the country so I thought it would be nice to have a nifty, portable, sexy television with me. I could just have my old T.V. shipped (FedEx, mind you) to the university, but that runs the risk of me not playing videogames as soon as I get there. And we all know school starts right near the end of summer; the time when some of the best videogames are released.

I also recentely got a 20GB iPod. She's my baby. No need for pictures of that, you all know what one looks like. Unless you're 58 years old. Like Brad.

Anyone else planning a purchase on something?

iRiver h320


Big battery eater (13 hours compared to 16-18 for other 20gbs), but I'll appreciate the full colour display.

What am I going to buy with my tax return......

A tank of gas. That's about all I'm getting back :(.

Well, I know I'm not getting any money back (there's a "I'm not rich enough for a tax break" joke somewhere, but it's irrelevant). I was qualified as self-employed all year, and thus didn't pay taxes, so I just owe them.

However, I do have my eye on a 40gb iPod

Even though I already have one of these.

Truth be told, I'm shallow enough to just want the pretty iPod. The iRiver has radio and like...recording, and I intend to keep it for the purposes of transferring music, which I've discovered you can't so much do with iPods, but...I just want the iPod, though I'll likely spring for some better headphones. I know it's retarded to have both, and the iRiver was a better deal when I bought it nearly a year ago, but now...I want the pretty.

I'm also getting a snarky array of shirts from Glarkware (http://www.glarkware.com/securestore/c188252.2.html)...because a summer isn't a summer without mean shirts.

I'm looking at getting an MP3 player too. I'm interested in either the Creative Zen Micro or the Creative Zen Touch, both are similar prices. The Micro has more features, the Touch has 20gb.

I haven't had any money taxed from work this year, so I'm getting $0 back. My parents owe me $700, though, so as soon as their return comes in...I buy the T.V. :)

Sounds about right Jasper... I'll probably get a half tank. Woo Hoo!! :err:

I want quite a few things. At the moment, none more than this:

A Fuzz Factory. That one there has a very sexy re-designed case, but I'd be happy with the standard one (although that is slightly more ugly). True Matt Bellamy (of Muse) sound, and the feedback/morph craziness is the main reason I want one.

Only £169. What. A. Bargain. :rolleyes:
