So, here we go. If money was no object for you, what would you have? Here's how it works. You tell me your choice for each of these subjects:

Car (Name a brand, and if you want you can say the model as well):

House (Descriptive):

Luxury item (Like a really expensive item):

Then a fourth choice is up to you, you make it what you want. For example:

Computer: Apple Mac pro! :D.

or

TV: a samsung 103" 3D

So, there is infinate money. Have fun! :jmp:.

You made the good choice! Nice... please don't tell me you went and got the cheap one :/ Just so you could say you had a Maybach... Most boasters like you do that :p.

EDIT: Sorry I took this off topic... :off:

Car: Alfa Romeo 8C Competicione. Dark red, closed version (but I'd take the convertible as well if it came down to that).

House: Old, huge, at least two ghosts, secret passageways, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Wifi everywhere and in the middle of a major city or with very good rail or subway connections there. Oh, and of course a garage, for my Alfa.

Luxury Item: A really large model railroad, obviously.

Other: I wouldn't say no to a helicopter.

And for the other ones sometimes answered here:
TV: Probably a projector of some sort.
Computer: I'm very happy with my 27" Quadcore i7 iMac, but I could use a new laptop. So I'd probably go for the most expensive 15” MacBook Pro available (the air has too little power for me as a real computer, and for on-the-go, it is not as good as the iPad).


As for those who mentioned something from Wolfsburg here as car favorite: Why on earth did you do that!? :D

Car Toyota Tacoma, Midnight or Electric Blue, X-Tra cab.

House A haybail & stucko house, in an adobe(ish) look/style. That's actually a relatively cheap(er) house to make, but they're supposed to be great on utility bills. It's in the design where I might go overboard.

Luxury item A high-def TV.

fourth A nice sound system to go with the T.V.

Keeping it simple I suppose. :)

Car: 2012 Corvette Convertible

House: Penthouse apartment on the top floor of a skyrise apartment. (60+ floors). It would be loft style with 3 levels. On the first level there would be a formal dining area and kitchen. On the overlooking loft -- up a staircase -- there would be a living area, office, and spare bedroom. . Then, up a spiral staircase there would be the master bedroom/bathroom! The first and second levels would be totally glassed in walls.

Luxury item: A gemstone of some sort. Maybe Red Topaz?

Computer: Idk something expensive! lol:p

It's quite interesting to see these, it shows the person in side :). For example, someone asked for something that we wouldn't consider being a luxury item... but they picked a HD TV as their choice, and others boasting because they have it all! :/. Quite interesting indeed... BTW, someone mentioned the most expensive 15" MacBook pro they could get, you do realise it goes to 17" right?.

Yes, I know there are 17” ones. That's why I said 15“, instead of simply saying "The most expensive MacBook Pro out there". :D

The 17” isn't a mobile computer, it's a desktop replacement. You can't simply get it out on an berate German train, on a plane, in a lecture hall and so on, since it is way too large. I prefer a smaller one. Now, the 13” model looks nice (and the air doubly so), but I think that screen is too small for my purposes. Some programs (Xcode 4 in particular) can be problematic at 15” already. So I currently have an old 15" MBP, and I'd just get a direct replacement for that since I've had good experiences with it.

By the way, about other posts here: Skoda Octavia? As far as nice know it is a solid car, quite good, VW quality at a slightly lower price. But a dream car if money was no object? That seems odd to me.
