    I would like bandwidth, bandwidth and some more bandwidth and actually only bandwidth cause I have an RCS card already and I already bought everything I need with it, so now I need the bandwidth :)

    Wow, N-I-C-E! Great opportunity & definitely not to be missed! I’m not 100% sure about the price (I’m willing to pay the difference if need be) but the BlackBerry Curve 9380 is really appealing right now. Why? Well because I’m a gadget freak who has been looking for the perfect balance between OS technology, secure messaging & UI friendliness. When it comes to messaging, BlackBerry rules hands down! I tried the Samsung Galaxy Ace (just to get onto the ‘Droid side) and that didn’t work out too well. That touch screen was too finicky amongst other little nibbles! That said, I moved back to my beloved BB and well we all know (link below) that they’ve released the BlackBerry Curve 9380 as a full touch screen device. It would really be awesome to get my hands on one these for testing my software and improving my daily grind..maybe even the world – who know?!?

    All hail to Bandwidth Blog, RCS… (and BlackBerry of course hee hee)! (“,)

    I would love to get the Asus Transfomer Prime – it looks great, has all the mobility of a tablet and the keyboard accessory if necessary, as well as Android ICS to go with it… And that come in just under R5000 :)

    I so need a laptop of my own so I hope I win :)

    I would buy an iPod Classic 160GB, because the one I had was stolen, and I ‘ve got a very big music collection which I like to have on hand. Maybe the iPod Classic is a bit dated by now, but there’s nothing else that can do the job. And I would match it with a 2TB Western Digital WD My Book Live Network Desktop 3.5″ External Hard Drive because I’ve learnt to take backup very seriously.

    I would buy a pair of VR glasses so I can play on my PS3 next to my wife while she watches Greys Anatomy on the TV.

    I would definitely buy myself a good camera. I am a freelance travel writer who, unfortunately, does not have a camera that takes photos which can “tell a thousand words”. I would love to have a camera which will take photos that I can publish with my articles.

    I would love the CANON – POWERSHOT SX40HS BRIDGE CAMERA and CANON – POWERSHOT SX40HS BRIDGE CAMERA. Its been a long time dream of mine to take up photography but camera’s are expensive! Photography will be a great way for me to express a creative side as my job isn’t very creative. With a camera in my hand the world be my oyster to capture great moments. What could be more special than capturing a moment in time.

    I would buy the DELL – Dell M5040 E450 for R4500  AND A LOGITECH – C310 HD WEBCAM for R4 500 from dion wired. We have the most ancient computer at home. It is over 10 years old. It has crashed twiced resulting in us losing lost of valuable memories like photos. Part of the computer hard drive got damaged by the movers when we moved house. Its super super slow which makes working on it a mission. We cant even surf the net because using our phones would be quicker. I would love to get this notebook as it would make using a computer fun again. I would like the webcam because I have family going overseas and getting to skype with them would be awesome.

    I have also been trying to start to write a book but obviously my current computer situation does not inspire much writing. Please make my dream come true!

    So I am going to be completely like everyone else and say I want the new ipad. I need an ipad. I dont want to be like the kid who sold his kidney fro an ipad and iphone. So please buy me an ipad! Its the cool gadget that you can take pictures on, take notes, watch series in bed, skype, listen to music, surf the net, read ebooks. Its small and portable. I have been coveting it since forever! I dont own any apple products but this would be a great start.

    I eat apples. Do you know how healthy I would be if I ate 5k worth of apples?

    Simply, getting an iPad 2 would be epic, next year I’m off to uni and I’d be saving massively if I could get all my books on an iPad. From what I’ve heard almost every student has some form of tab with them in class and this would be ideal to get a head start for Uni. I don’t really care how big it is, if it’s 3g or wifi, or where it’s from. The fact that someone is backing me with my studies would be substantial enough. Engineering all the way. It’s just logical.
