- Guitar - $160
- A classical guitar. It's not the most expensive, or the richest sounding, but it's pretty decent. Assuming you know how to use it. Comes with a free instructional book for beginners and a stand. (Playing this in your apartment raises dexterity; if you buy a busking license and perform outside, doing so raises your music skill.)
- Computer - $650
- A desktop computer. It's reasonably robust, capable of running most, if not all programs, and actually it's reasonably priced for what you get.
- Hacking Simulation Software - $60 - An "educational" game, this is designed to show you how to hack into various computer systems. It's not real, but the information it provides is relatively good. Plus, it's kind of fun. (Playing this raises your technical aptitude).
- Poker Software - $70 - A game of online poker. Somehow it hasn't run afoul of national laws against gambling, most likely because it doesn't involve real money.

- HDTV - It costs $650, but trading in your EDTV for a credit will reduce the cost to $500.
- A high-definition TV. Featuring picture-perfect quality, and the ability to get a much wider range of channels, this TV is compact, efficient, and terribly in vogue these days. Unless you're willing to spring for a 3D TV, which you're really not, this is top-of-the-line.
