Have I overdone it?

I am now fully Mac.

I work on a MacBook Pro, and a Mac Pro
My phone is an iPhone 5
I have a iPad 4thGen
At my Flat, I have a Mac Mini 2007, which powers my main media there large Monitor.
At my home, I have a Mac Mini 2010, which again powers my main media there to a TV

Have I eaten too much Apple, or has anyone gone further than me?

Doesn't sound like it to me.

My household consists of:

iPhone 5 32gb
iPhone 5 16gb
iPad 3rd gen 32gb LTE
iPad Mini 16gb
iPod Nano 8gb
iPod Nano 4gb (older model)
Late 2012 Mac Mini
Magic Mouse
Bluetooth Keyboard

I like the way that everything integrates. We still have two PC laptops laying around but they rarely get used.

Thanks, I'll expand on this.
My wife has an iphone 3gs,
a 3gs as a remote/game player (the sim slot is broken),
an ipod touch 3rdGen too.
There's an iphone 3g somewhere too.

That makes 10 Apple devices.
I'm not sorry.

Was this a passive way of you trying to tell people how much you have? if so, please just use the picture thread.

I rarely (if ever) agree with her (and him), but yes, OP. Use either the picture thread or one of the several threads GGStudios posted.

Bought a late-2008 17 inch Macbook Pro to use as my main computer
Switched to an iPhone 3GS from an HTC Touch Pro in 2009. GF already had an iPhone
Bought the Pro version of Logic 8 to use as my DAW for music
Girlfriend liked my MBP and bought a 13 inch MBP for grad school
Lined up for the first iPad and it was sold out. Finally got one in Santa Monica
Bought AAPL at $330
We both upgraded to the iPhone 4 when it came out
Girlfriend bought a 27" iMac after getting out of grad school
Last summer all my friends finally converted to iOS, meaning we could now use iMessage to talk trash to each other instead of GroupMe
GF and I both upgraded to the iPhone 5
Also got 1-2 iPods a year as random gifts. My workout MP3 player for years was the red nano

Month ago I switched to WP8 and now people are calling me a traitor lol. Sold my AAPL shares 2 weeks ago. Waiting for the Surface Pro to come out now

I wish I'd never started this thread now.....

The reason I ask is really, have I now tied myself into Apples Infrastructure so much now I cannot get out? (not that I want to at the moment).

What you on about? If you want 'out', you simply sell the Apple gear and buy some Windows/Linux and transfer your files.

I mentioned two people in the post. You the 'her' and GGStudios the 'him'. Poorly worded post? Yes.

Of course your right, you're female. Anyone who's been married or in a long term relationship for more then 30 seconds knows that the kinder and gentler are alway correct

I'm laughing at this but I see what you mean....

Sigh. Most likely, because it is a forum dedicated to things Apple, and the OP wants to share his feelings of boundless joy at the sheer primitive pleasure of ownership of such products, or perhaps, he merely wishes to feel that he (he? it is a he, isn't it?) belongs here, has proven his dedication and loyalty to what the less reverent sometimes claim is the cult of All things Apple, and will win thereby approbation from the rest of us, most of whom like, or admire, or enjoy, or simply buy, Apple products (and some of whom, I grant, are a tad obsessive about it).

However. I'm with Shrink on this; why the need to tell everyone how many products he owns?

Only you can answer that question for yourself, my friend.

Jav, you should've quoted "his" post in your post to avoid the confusion. Personally, I didn't know who "him" was either (not that it matters that I know).

And yes, jessica is always right.

As far as the OP goes, I have a MBP and am an ex-iPhone user.
