    Im in the money..... Help me spend it!

    I think I did a thread like this before but Ive spent that money!

    Basically Ive got about £500 to spend of my personal money to spend

    Ive had a few ideas but suggest some!

    Anybody bought stuff recently that is a good bit of kit or just something cheap that is practical.

    thanks

    I'd hold off on consoles until after christmas, xb360 and PS3 are expected to hit the £100 mark in the sales.

    Kit wise, I'd say buy a nice TV/Bluray system

    Which you should wait until Christmas to get. PS3 is supposed to be a pretty nice Bluray player.

    If you have a car and Android phone then these:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...orque&hl=en_GB

    Bluetooth OBDII OBD2 Diagnostic Scanner, Scan tool check Engine Light CAR CODE READER for ELM327: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike

    It'll help save you a packet in the future and you can do cool stuff like this as well:

    http://www.synology.com/en-us/products/overview/DS413j - Bought one of these with a couple of drives about a year ago and still love it.. Backs up all my computers, records the footage form my IP camera, holds my media library, remote access.... And there's still loads of features I havn't touched yet..

    thanks for all the suggestions.

    Keep them coming.
