    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. :(

    I'm thinking about buying my MBA soon. I've also thought about all the add-ons that would be needed:

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

    2012 MBA $1174 w/tax
    Extra Magsafe2 Power Supply $49
    Apple DVD Burner $57
    Thunderbolt Ethernet Adapter $30
    Targus 15" case $25

    Truth being told, the Targus case I used to use for my Netbook and the Thunderbolt adapter was a gift.

    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! :D

    $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 :)
