    but computers uses plastics... and they are transportd by sea... and ships uses fuel oil for propulsion.

    And oil price is going to rise by 150% with war.

    unless the factories get bombed, like they normally do every few years, then prices will be stable

    It depends how serious things get. Wars tend to destabilize economies, making the prices of various commodities go either up or down.
    After the war, economies tend to do well from the infrastructure rebuilding etc, but with terrorism, consumer confidence may well take time to rebuild.
    The rise in oil prices will have an immediate effect on petrol, but may not have it's full impact on the world economy for 1 1/2 - 2 years, as oil stores are reduced and replenished.
    If I could predict how things would go I would be lounging on a yacht in the Carribean by now. As always with computers, only buy stuff when you need it and can afford it.
    EDIT
    Did I just say "Only buy computer stuff when you need it and can afford it"? I must be having an attack of sesibleness, I will refrain from posting until I have done some shopping.

    I don't think it will have much of an effect personally. But do as Moo says and only buy when you need to.
