Default Need help deciding what to get with my gift cards

Hello guys,

I have a $300 worth of gift cards at OfficeMax and I don't know what to buy.

I'm in desperate need of a computer chair, but I didn't feel comfortable in any of the chairs.

I want an android 10" tablet, is the ASUS Transformer or Galaxy Tab 2 good enough? Or is it better to go with the Nexus 10(they don't sell this one)?

I also want some headphones, but they don't carry the Monster DNA, which are the ones I want.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for you answer dale!

I'm sorry, by the time you posted, my signature wasn't updated but I've had an SSD now for about four months (very happy with it, and it's only running at 3Gb/s, which is what my motherboard supports).

Back on topic, I still haven't made a choice on what to buy

Last time I was at officemax I bought some sharpies. I also bought a nice monitor about 2 years ago now.

APC UPS for your computer would be a smart buy.

Thanks guys, but I already have an ASUS VE247H 24" LED BackLight monitor and a CyberPower 1500AVR 900 Watts UPS. Updated my signature.

Maybe wait and see if they get the new Nexus 7 in stock at some time? I don't know.

I've never used post-it notes, well maybe once or twice in my lifetime or something to be very specific.

Thinking about getting the Kindle Paperwhite Wi-Fi with special offers. What do you guys think?
