I bought an excellent 2nd hand refurbished laptop from a place that sells to disadvantaged people. I survive on a gov't allowance and that was how I qualified. Maybe you guys have something like that where you live. I could never have afforded to buy a new one. The prices seems to be going up for laptops where other prices are going down.

I would definitely buy all the necessary things I would need to put up my dream businesses. A computer training center, a printing press and a photo studio. I would also but my own house and lot so I won't have any problems about rentals. Of course I would also like to share the money with some close relatives.

I just bought a laptop. I've wanted one for ages. The next thing is a treadmill. Of course it depends on how much money. There are lots of things that need doing to my home but if it was enough, I'd go live somewhere else because I will never see the money I've spent on this place. I'd also like to buy a 4WD...a Toyota Hilux dual cab ute would be great.

If it was a whole lot of money I'd of course want to help my parents. But my first purchase for myself would be a house. A small one, but I'd love to have any house. I need a backyard for my dogs, instead of the apartment I currently have. I'm grateful for the apartment, but it's not the best in the world. Actually, I have more of a problem with the nasty staircase to GET to my apartment, than the actual apartment.

I know that feeling I hated the stairs in my last house. I hope someday you will have a house thats all yours.

I don't know if this is something that you would necessarily buy, but if I had the money I would buy me out of dept! I know everyone can connect to me on that. When I win the lottery (And yes I have hope! lol) That is the first thing I will be "buying" or paying off. Wouldn't you agree?

Hi Terry, I think I'll go looking for a new car for my partner if I get lots of cash all at once. Than I'll send cash to my family that needs every help they can get. TheFortunes

Hi TerryZ, If I came into a lot of money the first thing I would buy is a house. I really want to give my daughter some stability, and a house where she can have some of her fondest memories! Next I would buy a minivan as my Dodge Neon isn't cutting it room wise for me, my hubby, our 15 month old, and our shihtzu Katie lol.

Awww that is sweet. I think that would be the next thing that I would buy. Living in an Apt. for the rest of my life just doesn't cut it! Third would definitely be a new car. Reaching 200,000 miles and this poor car is still hanging on strong!

If I had money? Is that like winning the lottery? LOL. I would buy a new or newer car. I'm driving a 1989 model Mercury Tracer. It's been a good car but it's not going to last forever. I'd get a new tv...mines on it's last legs. I'd get a new cd player...mine won't play cd's anymore, just the radio. I'd love a laptop! I've always wanted one, but the desktop will have to do right now. If I had the money? I'd probably add a laptop to my wish list. You got me going now...I'd pay off our mortgage, for sure!

Oh yeah...I need a new bed, or at least a new mattress! I can feel all of the lumps! Like I said...you got me going.

A home. I have always wanted out own home so if that ever happened, that would probably be the first thing we would buy AFTER paying off the bills!

You know, that is what I would buy. I always wanted a Macbook. I write and when I travel, it would be nice to write something when I am in the motel room rather than watch Tv, and some of the programs I really do not like. Mind you, if I had a lot, I would buy a Mac desktop for home, then a better printer. Mine is a small one and runs out of ink.

Hmmm.. my list is long. First I would pay off our debts. Then I would buy a house in my homecountry. Then I will put some money in investments, buy the best laptop (ofcourse)with internet connection, put money in our parents account so that they have no worries about money etc .... etc ... Hope one day I could achieve this with my hard work..

Been thinking about this for a long time. If I have the money, like win in a lottery draw: 1. I'd buy a big house. 2. I'd buy a car. (Isuzu Sportivo or Mitsubishi Montero or Ford Expedition, depending on my money hehehe) 3. I'd donate to Gawad Kalinga, a housing project for the poor. 4. Of course my own laptop. In my house, my room would be decorated the Japanese style. I don't like beds, just tatami and futon in my room with cabinets. Am i too detailed? heheh got carried away! IF I HAVE THE MONEY!!!

If it was a LOT of cash, like the lottery or something, the first thing would be to gather all of my bills and pay them ALL!!! Then I'd take my Dad to dinner (and hopefully my mom if she'd come)to some fancy place we would never be able to afford otherwise. Then I'd give them a wad of cash unexpectedly. (My dad has helped me a lot over the years, so I'd love to be able to give him a bunch of $ to pay him back for all that he's done for me). I'd HAVE to go through my box of charity mail and send something to every one of them. I'd send my brother some, as well as other family members. After all that, I'd go buy a nice kitty house for my outside kitties, with a heater and AC. I'd have to get myself a new car cuz I'm getting tired of all the car repairs and unexpected break-downs. BUT... I think I'd rather get my mom a new car first. Then, if there's enough $ left, I'll get one. Wow, that would be so nice!!
