and had to spend it on your computer or a new computer (plus accessories and games), what would you get? (Please list how much you would have in your countries currency.)

(I couldn't see a general Apple section, so I put it here. It's not exactly a MacMini related topic.)

(NB - In AU $, it would be $13,324.50)
Myself, I would get the following...

MacMini ($949) (80 Gig model) (With 1 Gig of Memory and a SuperDrive)
Mac OS X Tiger in a Snap ($39.95)
Apple Keyboard ($50)
Apple Mouse ($50)
20-inch cinema screen ($1,249.00)
Power Mac G5 Dual 2.7GHz ($4,899.00)
60 Gig iPod ($598.00)
17-inch PowerBook ($4,299.00)

Total cost - $12133.95

(NB - Not including the education discount.)
(You don't have to be able to afford it, just post what you would buy, up to a max of $10,000 US.)

I'd get a 12" Powerbook, top of the line, fully loaded.
I'd get a 20" Cinema Display.
I'd get a 15" Powerbook, also fully loaded.
I'd get a PowerMac with most of the trimmings.
I'd get the wireless kbm set.
I think that'd be it. That should be around $10K, maybe less.

Reason for 2 laptops: one for play and one for notes during class.

I'd buy Apple stock and retire Smile

I'd buy products that I could make a little cash off. Like a pro camera and other studio equipment. I'd do photo shoots for hot female models etc.

Haha, hell, if you can get some gigs like that I think I may have to delve into a little prosumer modeling...

In that case, I'd get me one of these...

Along with my cool G4 laptops and Cinema Display.

You're a year and a half late! You should've bought it when it was 15. I have a habit of buying high and selling low!

Do you need someone for lighting during the photoshots? Very Happy

Actually I could use someone for lighting. I've always been on the lens part of photography; I could use a specialist. I think I have a few more openings for people to help me out... Laughing
