How much have you Spent on your Air (Hardware, Accessories, etc.)

Not that I can't buy what/when I want but my girl says it never ends. Why can't I just be happy with my new toy? LOL She's saying isn't that why I bought a NoteBook so I just don't to buy any of these.

Not sure it is the money I saved by buying it on kijiji or I'm being anal that I spent...

All off kijiji, again I'm saving here.

Dell UltraSharp 24" Monitor U2412M ($275) >>> backed out and went less expensive 21.5" UltraThin LED S2230MX. It went on sale last week, for $150 shipped. <<<
Marware Messenger Bag ($40)
Logitech mx Performance Mouse ($80)
Apple MagicTrack Pad ($50)
Microsoft Bluetooth 5000 Mice ($40)
Monoprice Cables ($20)

Almost $380.

monitor
two USB hard drives
case
docking station
external mouse and keyboard
3rd party insurance policy

2012 MBA 11" = $0 (Was a Christmas Gift)
Apple MagicMouse = $69
Apple USB SuperDrive = $79
DisplayPort to VGA Adapter = $29
2nd MagSafe Power Supply = $0 (someone gave me one from their dead MBA)
MBA Sleeve = $39
Re-used an existing laptop bag = $0



So, my MBA was free and some of my accessories were either free, or pre-existing. So my wife has no complaints about my spending on my toy!

$70 for hard case cover
$90 for hard case bag
$30 for keyboard cover
$40 for soft sleeve bag
$50 for 11" MBA bag
(I know, so many bags.. lol)

Already have Magic Mouse, Keyboard, and monitor with/from other existing devices, which equivalent to around $500-600.

Mini USB for extra storage- $200
Thule sleeve- $390
Disk Drive- $270

All prices in Hong kong dollar so in usd should be around $110. Might buy an apple tv for streaming movies from my MacBook. With that, altogether, $212. In my opinion the SuperDrive is a complete rip-off, I think it's disgraceful that apple is deleting firmware that enables 3rd party disc drives from working just so you pay that much for their overpriced drive. Buy a 3rd party one that you know works on Mac (look it up on google or something).

I've spent nothing.

I already had a magic mouse and a miniDP (thunderbolt) to HDMI adapter from my previous Mac.

Rough estimates here

$20 USB Stick for file transferring and whatnot
$30 Sleeve
$30 Pledged for the Nifty MiniDrive

So I guess a pricy high density MicroSD card will come next!

Will also eventually get a new bag for work. My current one is a designated 15" laptop bag, for fat laptops. Figured I don't need a "laptop bag" anymore, just a bag

13/128/8gb Air - $1239 on tax free weekend
Shipping - $15
Sena Folio case - $75
Rocketfish USB3.0 enclosure - $15
Total = $1344

That's all for now. I will be getting an IPS monitor when I've paid off the Macbook though so I will be spending at least $150 more on it.
