Please try and not quote images of pictures and for large images please use TIMG tags

Anyway, post a picture (preferably a picture that you took), of the last thing you bought. May it be candy, jeans or a new car, it doesn't matter, just post it (keep it clean).

Something not Mac related to start this one off... Seasoning left side now...

WD 1TB Passport. It is very nice once you get their software off, which a re-format does NOT do! You have to run a firmware update and program to uninstall their software. Luckly, WD's Web site provides the instructions. After all that, it is an awesome drive.

Just bought everything I need for an oil change which is due in 300 miles.

Going to try out the Penn Ultra as its way cheaper than the Nissan Ester Oil I have put in to date. Supposedly this stuff has the same friction modifiers so should be very similar, but about $40 a change instead of $80 a change for the Nissan kit, instead of $120 at the stealership.

They are crush washers for the oil drain plug. You need to use a new one each change. I bought five as they wanted to charge me $2.10 each at the dealership, so I talked them down to 5 for $5. Also won't have to buy more for about 2 years; 5 oil changes = 25,000 miles!

I didn't make the purchase myself but my mom bought me a 3GS iPhone on yesterday in exchange for me giving her my 2g iPhone. She wanted to try out an iPhone without having to be locked into contract (in case she doesn't like it :confused:). I guess you can say I sold my iPhone 2g to my mother for the cost of the new phone.

I'm aware that a new one may be released soon but she needed a phone and I wasn't going to turn down what essentially was a free upgrade for me.

Why did you sell your Mac Mini?!?!?!

hehehe I will be getting another one for sure when they refresh the line. I was offered like the same amount I paid for it (not bad considering I got it in November). So I took the money from that (and yanked the 4gb upgrade out of the mini and put the 2gb from the macbook into it) and bought an SSD Intel gen 2 80gb drive for the macbook. : )

I switch computers like a car enthusiast. : ) I couldn't pass up the deal when the guy said, "I have 650 bucks right here for that mini". The next buy will be when I sell this macbook. I will save up the difference and either get a refreshed Macbook or a Mac Mini when they refresh the line.

The Mini is by far the coolest home computer I have ever owned though!

I hate you for getting a Madone! :p How is it? What kind of riding do you do? What kind of bike did you have before that?

LOVE the bike.
I'd be delightfully surprised if a MBP refresh hits today.

I love this bike. I rode an aluminum Trek 1000 I picked up a year ago off of Craigslist for a couple hundred bucks, just to commute to work and get around DC. My friends were all doing centuries and triathlons so I felt the need to do one too. I had never ridden more than 20 miles at one time before in my life, but I trained for a century in 5 weeks and rode it without clips, in my tennis shoes on that rickety old Trek. I just had to pull the trigger on the Madone when I saw they had them on clearance at the shop in Georgetown. There is nothing like that bike. All carbon, clips, awesome ultegra components, it's so awesome to ride. It's tight, it's responsive, when you get out of the saddle and open it up, it's all you...it doesn't even feel like you're pulling any weight in the bike at all, unlike my other bike.

Just because of that Madone, I've been doing 100 miles a week for fun since the weather started getting nicer here. It's a dream of a bike, and worth every single penny. Looking forward to getting my carbon aerobars on it and start training for the DC tri this summer. Haven't gotten the custom Jawbones yet, but I'm looking forward to the day I get them!!!

For my price range, I wanted a discrete graphics card. The current 2.53 model only has integrated.
Plus, the expresscard slot is a big plus. The only downside is the 5-hr battery instead of the 7-hr in the current model.

I'm happy!

BC2 was an interesting buy. Went to Futureshop, hoping I could get a price match on the 360 version, but Walmart only had the PS3 copy on sale, so went with that. Normally it's a price match + 10% of the difference.

So, $59 - $49 = $10. 10% * $10 = $1.

Technically should have gotten the game for $48, but she made the mistake of selling it to me for $38. Be it a mistake or not, I went with it.

Ass' Creed - $30. Can't complain for such a fun game.

Just Cause 2 I got over the weekend with a price match as well for 40 bucks.

Best purchase was Cyanide and Happiness. Friends keep asking me why I'd buy something freely available online, to which I reply "Unlike you, I want to support them."

For $16, you get quite a few lawlz.

Installed my x25 just now.
Whole process took all of 10 mins. Didn't have a torq driver
so I had to use some pliers so that took a sec (i was gentle).
Boots in under 25 seconds, and shuts down like in 3 or 4.
I am never going back to a platter drive for a boot disk
if I can help it.

For those that haven't made the leap to SSD yet... do it. Best
230$ i have spent in a LONG time. That and the 4 gigs of ddr3
I popped in 2 weeks ago have breathed new life into this
2008 aluminum unibody macbook.

That's just something I couldn't do... Newegg has the 40GB X-25 for $98.99. Just too small.

I got the 80 gigabyte one for 230$. It is more than enough for what I
use it for. The OSX install, Adobe Creative Suite CS4, MS Office, and a few
small apps runs me around 38 gigs. Thats with a 3 gig iphoto library and
an install of warcraft 3 : ). I don't ever see myself going over that
because I don't need/want any other programs at the moment.

I do agree that 40 gigs is too small. 80, imho is the sweet spot right now.
Photoshop handling large images (I deal with 20-100meg images on
a daily basis) is a breeze now. So is loading all my tools. It's insane the
impact that an ssd makes.

On a side note, I got the Vyper case, loved it. Then my Speck Satin
Cover came and I noticed it won't fit in the Booq Vyper case.. sucks.
So I am selling the 45$ Vyper for 25$ right now on ebay lol.

Wireless keyboard and refurb wireless Mighty Mouse. My posture will thank me. :D

Now you need to save up and buy a mstand by rain design. I just picked up one recently and it makes the screen some much better on the back. This is when your posture will really thank you. only $50 dollars and free shipping. http://www.amazon.com/mStand-Laptop-Stand-Rain-Design/dp/B000OOYECC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1270174330&sr=8-1

Nissin Di866 Professional flashgun for Canon.

Excellent flashgun, I had wanted a Canon Speedlite 580EXII but someone recommended the much cheaper (almost half the price of the Canon) Nissin instead. The build quality is nowhere near as good as Canon but it is a decent flash and key for me was that it would remotely trigger my Canon Speedlite 430EXII flashguns and this does the job beautifully. It also has a rather interesting pre-flash unit (immediately below the main flash head) which the Canon doesn't have.

The keyboard has actually replaced another one that got beaten in number-crunching.

About the Wacom Bamboo... I wish that I either bought the first generation long ago or the current Pen&Touch. Operating a tablet, a keyboard, a mouse and a multitouch trackpad is a bit of a bore.

lol i have the pen and touch and its great (although i dont use the touch at all really)
my most recent apple purchase is the aluminium keyboard with numpad (wired one)..
most recent non-apple purchase was paintballing a few days ago...

You are right that the all black set up and the yellow stand does look nice but as it was mentioned, the mstand acts like a heat sink which is a plus since the uMBP seem to run HOT as most of us know. The mstand goes very nice with the uMBP and magic mouse. I just wish apple would listen to the one thing that I want, wireless keyboard with black keys and backlighting. I know Im not the only one who wants this. Sign me up, Ill buy it right know. Lloyd

LOL I got fed up with my WD My Passport 500gb external USB drive.
Every time I moved the cord it would eject from OSX. The plug
for the mini usb to usb cord was way loose on the drive end. So I
put it on eBay for 65 bucks with free shipping. It sold within a few
hours.

In any case, I bought a 7200rpm 320GB hard drive with an external
3.5" Sata enclosure that I am going to order in a day or two. I also
got my Skull Candy ink'd buds today for the gym and love em. Paid
14 bucks shipped for them.

I went to the Apple Store at Century City, and there was a line up 15-20 people deep outside. I asked someone to hold my spot, went to the front and asked if there were any 16 GB iPads left. The guy said, "yeah, come on it."

The line up was to TRY it, not to buy it.

Bought the iPad case from Apple. Opened it up and decided to take it back in about two seconds. What a cheap, utter piece of ****. Its flimsy, extremely hard to get the iPad in and out of, has sharp edges, ect..... I could go on. I'll be getting a REAL case from Incase later this week.

I really like it. The 30° stand position is really convenient. Makes the iPad easier to use, imo. I like the feel of the material and how securely it holds the iPad. Plus how thin and lightweight it is. I thought the flap was magnetic, though, which would've been nice.

Samsung 2.5" 640GB HDD, as Apple lost my 500GB Samsung when I sent my MBP in for Applecare. They gave me a 1TB Time Capsule as a replacement, which I don't want, and still no proof that my previous drive has been destroyed or erased.

Audi A4 Quattro driveshaft (did something stupid when fixing the boot, so now need a whole new one...ugh)

And some tools for the install. I would think Hex, torx and 6pt bolt would be enough....but nooooooo, car companies have to use even more odd fasteners. In this case 12pt triple square....

Just got back from my Apple store and got the Incase Slip Sleeve Plus. Belkin is overcharging for their iPad case for no reason $40, just saw at BestBuy Mobile their same exact case but it didn't say it was for the iPad and it was $25. :rolleyes: The Apple store employee was awesome and wanted to test out all the cases on their demo iPad (the one without any theft sensors on) and basically i can say that all the Incase silicone cases are a piece of crap and their thin Slip Sleeve is kinda good but the opening where you slip in your iPad will not be well sealed and will only get worse in time.

You forgot to mention that there's nothing to keep it closed- there's no magnet or latch to stop it from opening when it's closed like a book.

It's weighted, so it acts the same way as a hardcover book: stays closed when resting flat, but not in a way where gravity would cause it to open.

Yeah, I was able to check one out when I was at the Apple Store. The cover seemed too flimsy for my tastes. Another member stated that it seems to be a dust magnet as well.

Hopefully it turns out to be a great case, but probably not for me.
