For the holidays I received a couple Best Buy gift cards, three to be exact. One was for $25 and two were for $50 each. I also I a return I can make for $48.98 plus I have $80 worth of reward points on my Best Buy account. With that said, I can spend a total of $253.98. I would really like to not spend anything out of pocket and I would like to also try to spend the entire amount. Any suggestions?
I should mention that I have a Mac desktop that I purchased a few months back. I have installed Parallels so I can run both Mac and Windows programs. I already have a printer, scanner, router and iPod. I do not have cable TV in my office so a television would not do me much good. I already have Pages, Family Tree Maker 2011, iLife and a new iPod Touch 4G. What I do not have are Windows 7, Microsoft Office. I have considered buying both of those, or at least one. I currently have Windows Vista installed on the Mac.
In general, I pretty much have everything that I want. I thought about an iPad but that would cost extra money and I should probably hold off until the new ones come out in the spring. Those are supposed to have an SD card reader plus front and rear-facing cameras. I honestly do not need an iPad, it would be more of a vanity purchase than anything...although it would be nice for reading books that I buy in the Apple bookstore. The font on the iPod is just so tiny!
Well, I am going to Best Buy around 7:00 tonight. I do not think they close early for New Years so I am going to take a shot. If you have any suggestions, please shoot them off to me as soon as possible. I am really into Mac stuff right now, Apple products in general. Apple TV looks interesting for my living room. Something for genealogy would also be a nice thought. I do not have a nice, portable camera. Maybe I could get one to make videos for the blog? Let me know your thoughts and I will update you when I make the purchase.
