To each his own, but I would dump the bonds. You don't need them unless you are close to needing the money for some reason--usually that means close to retirement.

If you are young, you should be 100% in stocks. At least an S&P Index fund and I would say preferably up to 30% in an aggressive sector fund such as a technology sector fund.
