    I would suggest buying clothes if you still go to school,probbaly get high speed internet for yourself,or just some hardware that you can use to tweak your computer(s). But you shouldn't blow 800 bucks on two things, spend it wisely. lol

    If your really looking to spend it, here are a few suggestions...

    A home theater system (thats like 5 or more speakers, sub woofer, tuner and some even include 5 disc dvd changers).

    Upgrades for your current computer, for 800 dollars you could have a VERY sweet machine. That includes buying a new monitor, like a 20 inch flat panel monitor.

    See if your parents will put it into a savings account for you that you have access to, that way, you can use it whenever you want AND its gaining interest, so you would be making money. I know that doesnt sound like a flashy idea, but in the long run, it could actually help you get more stuff. And in the long run, when you find something you REALLY want, you will have the money for it, rather then trying to come up with something at the last minute, that you may not neccessarily want and will regret spending the money on.

    An electronical robot, if you need an example, here is a link to what I am talking about: Robot Example

    An electric scooter, they can be used in residental zones.

    A gas powered car or plane that you can fly via remote control. I used to race cars, and I used to help my dad fly planes that he built himself, so that might be something fun and even start a new hobby for you, especially if you get a kit for a gas powered plane and build it yourself.

    Perhaps a high powered telescope, again it could create an interest in the hobby of astronomy.

    New furniture for your room. Such as a better bed, new desk, depending upon the size of your room, a couch, or something of that nature.

    A phone for your room, with answering machine and caller id and everything else.

    Thats all I can think of at the moment, hopefully it helps some though. My best advice, is just make sure its something you really want, so that you dont regret spending the money later on.

    If you work, just add it to your savings and it'll help towards getting a car

    I'd buy a new cell phone and then save. It's always a good feeling when you find that $800 you forgot about under your bed. :P

    An why get a bike when you could run? I always fall down on a bike. :P

    If you don't know what to get then you're wasting your money by buying something. In the end you might not really want it (then you're pretty screwed). People are basically telling you what to get. Save it. I'd suggest to keep it in your bank, you'll get a lot of interest.

    but yeah thats all i got if i think of any more stuff ill let u know
