    Thumbs up Things to do with a 100 dollars.

    So I have scrimped and saved up a hundred dollars over the last year, with the promise to myself that this money would be spent on something fun/cool dealing with computers/tech toys. Funny thing is that I cant really think of anything I really want, since my computer is running slicker than oil, my ipod works whenever I bother to charge the thing, heck I dont even need extra hardrive space, and my old printer is still going strong under linux.

    So, I come to you dear forum, give me ideas on how to spend my reward for being good and thrifty last year. Suggest cool techy things that you want. Its fine if they are over a 100 dollars, since I have waited this long and patience is free.

    Re: Things to do with a 100 dollars.

    I'm saving up to buy a network music stereo.

    This to be more exact:

    It's around 120-150 euro.

    I already use a upnp server (mediatomb) to stream video to my ps3.

    This bad boy would replace my 8 year old 30 euro micro stereo in my kitchen.

    Continue saving it and spend it on something other than tech gadgets. Heck I know I'm trying to save up money to buy a new sail for my Windsurfer.

    You can buy some lower end computers on E-Bay to refurbish (and resell) or to experiment with.

    A Wacom tablet is always fun. Refurbished Intuos 3s can be had for around $99 (for the smallest).

    I'd buy another Olympus 35 SP rangefinder camera from ebay.
