Your Latest Toy/purchase?

Post up what toy you bought lately.. not including stuff like food image

Just picked up a Dell Inspiron desktop for photo editing - my laptop is having a lot of heat management issues. I get kinda surprised every time I buy a computer nowadays.. everything seems so cheap. 2.5 GHz dual core, 3gb RAM, 320gb HD for $300 flat, shipped. Compared to when I was a kid, I think all the computers were like $1500, and you had to build your own stuff if you wanted a decent price.

    ^ Thats a screaming deal~ image You still have to build your own if you start to go in to high end and more complex set ups but yeah for the majority of consumers, going retail is definitely cheaper.

    My recent toy/purchase back in December was a Canon 5Dii and the 24-70L lens. Loving it~ Also just bought a EVGA Gtx 295 graphics card 2 weeks ago.

    ^ Really? I can't really tell the real world difference between component and hdmi (in terms of picture quality) to any noticeable degree. Sure if you zoom in and really analyze the picture, you'll come up with benefits but sitting a couple of feet back on my couch, it looks the same to me. *shrugs*

    EXALTED ONE

    I found a Muhammed Ali bobble head doll at the 99 cent store.
    You don't know how ironic this toy is.

    That's really cute. Is that supposed to be an inflated chair? Or it's just a caricature.....

    I got a Doraemon bobblehead a few weeks ago. It's only 3 inches tall. Big head, small body.

    I recently bought a pink koala scarf~! It actually has a koala on it. Tehehe. It's so cute.

    Seriously speaking, I think the latest toy I bought was my (pink) nDS Lite. Which was a year ago.
    I'm planning to get a VAIO notebook, but not sure... still hunting and not having much luck !!~~

    I'm an impulse buyer, sometimes it hurts but my last thing I bought was a flight to Toronto lol.

    Didn't tell anyone I just packed up and left for a week. My employees were wondering where I was that day, called them from Chicago O'Hare airport and told them I needed a vacation image

    Actually I flew up to go surprise my girlfriend and family. I just needed a vacation from all the work. The recession has caused a lot of programs and loaded me with work. So I just told my employees to try to take care of things while I'm gone and I'll handle the rest when I'm back. Now I'm back and I'm overloaded lol.

    Lol - we got our bonus at work last month so I used a little of it. I see it as "boostiing the economy". At least I didn't go nuts and buy that Kate Spade bag that I've been eyeing for the last month.

    I need to stop shopping.
