    Well, I would buy myself 3 or 4 top spec alienwares (AMD64) and use the rest of the money to get all the networking gear.
    so since it's just one item you're allowed, you're saying: a computer

    OK, if it is just one item, I would get the top spec alienware with the dual plasma screens.

    I had this discussion with my lead guitarist the other day. He suggested "maybe I should get another bass drum" as he's thinking of writing some songs which would suit double bass, and was quite shocked when I told him that on my (best-of-the-lower-end) drum kit the drum alone would cost £350, £150-200 for the pedal to go with it, and another £50 for a case to take it to practice/gigs. I think he was probably expecting me to say around £150 at most for the lot!

    Yes, it's not hard to spend 10 grand on drums. Custom made Pearl Masterworks will cost you 1-2 grand per drum, and good cymbals anywhere from £100-£250 or more depending on size and type. Then you start on the effects, electric pads, remote pedals, a big gong or two and it becomes ridiculous!

    Now obviously people have done the "what would you do if you won the lottery" type question, but that's just unrealistic. It's more realistic that you might save up in the future for a luxury item/trip/something, probably priced not much more than ten grand. So i'm just interested....if you could get any one thing, up to the value of ten grand, what would it be? Be honest, i think it's interesting to see what people would like to save up for but cant be arsed :P

    REMEMBER IT IS ONE ITEM ONLY, NOt SEVERAL THINGS...ONE ITEM!
    A motorbike :cool:
    EDIT: a really cool one :cool:

    All that money wasted on causing a racket and giving your neighbours grief. Lord hope you never live above the level of subsistence.
