    I have $1000 I could spend if I find something nice I'd like to spend it on...
    I already have:
    iPhone 4S 16GB WHITE VERIZON
    Apple Thunderbolt Display
    2011 MacBook Air 11" 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD
    3 TB WD HDD
    Canon Printer

    I've had an iPad before and found I didn't really use it.. (This was when I had a MBP and iPhone and that's it)... is there anything else that would be nice to buy for a Black Friday deal?

    Spend it on me... :D

    Kidding aside, spend it on a nice DSLR camera perhaps?

    Not particularly interested in a camera.... interesting idea though.

    'Pay yourself first.'

    I'd save it; never know when it's going to raining. Especially in this economy.

    If you insist on spending it, an i5-2500k with GTX 560ti windows gaming box.

    Get a Mac Mini as your desktop computer and connect it to your Thunderbolt Display. You may consider putting an SSD into the Mini.

    If you're not interested in the iPad, there's not much left from Apple to recommend besides maybe the ATV to Airplay from your iPhone. That's why people are telling you to save it, there'll be plenty of major releases coming next year.

    But for something different, if you're at all into music I can tell you I love my Sonos S5 and Play:3. Even in a small apartment being able to go from my living room to bedroom without missing a beat is pretty...well, magical. :p And I like being able to easily control it from both my iDevice and Mac.

    New headphones, a new wardrobe, another thunderbolt display, or do some early Christmas shopping. :p

    Save a couple hundred more and get yourself an iMac (or, if you're impatient, there's always credit; it's what I did).
    Would've told you that the Air is the best way to spend 1000 bucks, but you already have one.

    Seems like I will be doing this... There's nothing I missed that would be helpful, and you guys couldn't pick anything out either. Thanks for the help... Now time to enjoy what I have.

    Wait - I totally think you should get an iPad. There are no end of things people do with it. At least you could use it as a nicer e-Reader than your iPhone...

    You won't like this reply but if you have a 1000$ and you're asking others what to spend it on, there's something seriously wrong with this.

    Looks like you are already spoiled with many Apple Devices...

    Best thing you could do is SAVE IT!

    I wish that I had a spare $1000.00 that I didn't know what to do with so I had to ask everyone on macrumors.com for advice.
