SATA 2.5" bus-powered HDD enclosure: FW800/USB2

A new set of computer tools

A new 500 GB 5400 RPM or 320 GB 7200 RPM HDD for my MBP (late 2006).

Non-tech: maybe an AR-15.

I wouldn't mind Rev and the OBDII WIFI connector, but together they're almost $300 and that's just too much.

Mine's already been delivered.


Cyberman "authentic" prop replica (#33).

We didn't pay nearly that much though. I'm geeky, but I'm not completely crazy.

I really want a synthesizer, so I can start playing around on the piano again.

However, I just bought two computers, so I don't really need to be spending $300+ on a synth.

A new phone would be nice, too. Mine's ancient at this point.

Why don't you just get a $ 99 keyboard, and play through GarageBand ?

Yeah. I want an actual synth that doesn't rely on a computer (not only that, but a specific computer) to be usable. I'd rather have something I can move around or take with me if I want.
