buy a base-model compact pickup for about the SAME as a base-model Honda Civic. Street price of either (brand new) will be a bit more than $10K unless maybe you find a really *stripped* promotional unit they get in just for bait-&-switch newspaper ads (that's what it is if you saw an ad in the paper for $9999 or whatever, else I'm not sure where you got the idea a new Civic can be had for $10K).

With the pickup you don't get a back seat and would need some kind of secure bed cover to haul computer gear, but would have the option of carrying a lot more and/or much bigger objects. Either way price is in same ballpark just a matter of what you want/need the most.
