Dear Lazyweb  
Earlier this week was my farewell lunch with my former team. They took me to a great local hibachi grill, and we all got stuffed with way too much food. There was a lot of amusing, often crass banter. I'm really gonna miss working with them!

Anyways, in addition to the lunch and a very nice card, they gave me a gift card to CDW! I'm not going to say the exact amount, but it's a very generous one. Trouble is...I have no idea what to get with it! First thought was a computer upgrade (put it towards a new video card, ram, something like that), but...that just doesn't seem right. It should go towards something fun on its own, not just a part of an overall system.

So...I throw myself upon you for advice. Anyone have any suggestions? (Someone already suggested the 30GB iPod Video, which, while nice, I'm not sure I can justify. I did just buy a PDA that can play media files, and large storage cards, so while the iPod would be nicer, it would also be duplication in a lot of areas ;))

A nice small digital camera?

New biiiig and flat monitor! That's my call. It makes any system better.

Nothing wrong with upgrading though. Or, you know, asking your lady what she might want. ;)

yah yah yah, if you haven't already got one, these flat monitor doohickeys are soooooooooooo nice! really really. (Mom and Dad gave me a Samsung SyncMaster 930B for my birthday.. it's awesome) And I agree with these other comments too..

If you love your personal computer you'll put that money towards a UPS. I know you still don't have one. Okay, I know that's "practical" and not "fun," but having a flaming or browned-out PC is never "fun" either.

For fun and non-usefulness, how about a wireless network-enabled webcam so we can watch you play piano? Or, if that doesn't wind your binder... I can personally vouch for how much awesome can be contained in the Video (Fifth Gen) iPod.
