Some money to spend, what to buy?

I have some money I might like to spend. What to buy?

(Just background, I have 2006 Allez, bottom of range, with stock sora fd, tiagra rd, unbranded brakes, non-clipless(ie regular) pedals, but clean and taken care of).

Phone contract expires in 2 months.

Macbook Pro: but I bought a Dell XPS M1330 4 months ago.

iPhone: good and expensive

Gym: is close to work, I wont save any money biking to work (ie I wont save travel costs as I get a lift)

Don't keep the money, inflation will eat it away! j/k, if its not a significant amount of money, inflation is really irrelevant.

Buy something that you'll get use out of. If you have everything you need, I'd invest it. Look into some rail transport stocks, they have a bright future, just ask Warren Buffet.
