    What would you buy with $2500?

    If someone just came up to you and gave you $2500, what would you buy?

    Tell us.

    My answer today would be a new computer or a couple of color calibrated monitors.

    I'd go on a trip to somewhere interesting and shoot more pictures ...

    All of them? Well you can get 2 NEC monitors for that much as long as you don't go for the 30" one when they have sales... You could also get a Macbook Pro or iMac with the money. Not all of them together but either or.

    If you add $600 to $3,100, you can actually get a Mac Mini with 2.3GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 and 16GB RAM plus two Apple Thunderbolt displays.

    Add another $100 and you get a 27" iMac with 3.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i5 and 16GB RAM plus an extra 27" Thunderbolt monitor.


    For me:

    OMD EM5 Black Body
    12-50 Zoom Olympus Lens
    12/2 Olympus Lens
    45/1.8 Olympus Lens
    25/1.4 Panasonic Lens
    2 Spare Olympus Batteries

    Price: $2500

    Will arrive soon

    Naturally, instead of waiting to bump into this guy on the street, we could simplify the process. Where do I send the bill...

    I keep putting off a decent tripod and head purchase, it seems Camera GAS wins over accessories.
    So for me a new tripod a ball head and a nodal slide.

    Oh, the left over would go towards the next GAS item. Maybe a RX1

    Same here, but it didn't cost me quite that much.
    Or it would pay for the new Mac mini and display I ordered.
    Or it would pay for the Nikon Coolscan 9000...
    Or it would pay most of the bill for my next trip to the UK...
