    Do you also get super giddy when you get a new gadget/pc/laptop or perhaps other item

    I do.

    I remember when I got my HTC One X, man I didn't even want to eat.



    When I got my computer parts ah that was a sight. (the box and all the contents)



    Soon I will get a new laptop.

    Can't wait.



    Do you also get giddy when you get something new?

    yup always. although I feel the same about most non-essential things I buy. Clothes / music etc. It's not a good way to save money.
    Recently bought a new car which I think trumps anything else I've had that feeling about.

    I'm always worried that the cashiers at Bestbuy are going to suspect me of shoplifting when I'm checking out. I have a tendency to get excited when making a relatively big purchase, which tends to result in me getting all fidgety and awkward to talk to. xD

    My company got me a new laptop today. Yes, I'm slightly giddy, though less so because I can't install whatever I want on it.
    Well 1, 2, 3, take my hand and come with me
    Because you look so fine
    And I really wanna make you mine

    I love getting new electronics.

    Opening my current laptop was super exciting because it was the first expensive thing I bought with *my* hard earned money.

    Wow, I don't know about cars, but I could imagine the feeling...

    It's christmas for me whenever I get a new guitar. You can't beat that new guitar smell when you open the case.
