What to buy… what to buy…
I have a conundrum. I have some money saved up but I am undecided on exactly what I want to spend the money on. I have a number of things, each of which I have good and bad points for.
- 30GB iPod – I have always wanted an iPod and for £150 it seems like a good deal, especially considering the nano’s which are 4GB are only £30 cheaper. On the other hand do I need a 30GB mp3 player? No device will have enough power to play all the songs on there anyways. I also won’t be able to go running with it as easy as the nano – the nano is so light I can hardly feel it in my pocket, but the Video iPod will be a lot heavier. Also, I don’t think I will ever use the video function of the iPod.
- XBox 360 – I have wanted one, but it’s been just too expensive for me, but next term I will be able to afford it. If I get one will I be able to afford any games on it and will it be worth it without an HD TV? If I get an HD TV later down the line, the XBox 360 Premium doesn’t have HDMI support, so should I wait for the XBox 360 Elite? The 360 has some games (Gears of War) that I really really want to play…
- Mac Mini / MacBook – I know one is slightly more expensive than the other, but I could wait to save it up. I already have a laptop so maybe a MacBook would be a bit silly, but on the other hand, the Mac Mini is also portable, yet can still be a desktop. Do I really need a Mac? I already have a desktop and a laptop.
- Am I being silly – should I just put the money in my bank account and let it cover my overdraft when I go into it?
Any thoughts on this would be muchly appreciated. 😀
