    Do all Apple fanboys and fangirls save the boxes their product came in? Also, are you teased for being a Apple fanboy or fangirl? I made this poll to answer these questions. I know I have kept all my Apple boxes since I became a fanboy and my friends tease me because I know that Apple products usually come out at 10:00 am pacific in an annual circuit and that the Apple head quarters is found in Cupertino. :D

    I keep the boxes, because honestly, I like to look at them. They're pretty, and well designed. They're also nicely reusable, if you're willing to give them away. But mostly they're pretty.

    I don't get any crap for my love of Apple. Usually someone will try to tell me how superior their Microsoft computer is, and I verbally beat them down. It's fun sport! I'm about to purchase an iPad, however, and I expect to get a little grief for that.

    Apple all the way

    I keep all my boxes for my iPhones (3) and iPad. I really think it helps when I sell them after upgrading.

    Although I am OCD on that stuff, I even keep the window stickers that came on any new car I buy. :rolleyes:

    I consider myself a semi-collector so it is nice to have the original packaging.

    I keep boxes from the newest Apple products I buy, but I toss the boxes from the older products at the same time. But I admit that I sometimes cut out the images and use them for decorations! I liked the original box for the iSight, for example.

    I kept my iMac box to make it easy to transport as i moved around alot in the past 2 years. iPad and iPhone i put in the box likely due to a cosmic force that took over my body and told me i couldn't throw them out.

    I am not teased, though i do take a fair amount of criticism at work by those who still are obsessed with "open" software as they say. No, they are not talking about Linux, but Microsoft, which "allows you to do anything". With ignorance such as this, it's easy to look right past the criticism.

    Lol I'm the same way. About once a month I take the boxes and read the instructions and admire the differences, I just got done doing this with my iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. I don't know what to do with the iMac box once I get it because its so big? But I hate getting teased about how much I know about Apple but to tell the truth it's the basic stuff anyone can memorize. :apple: Think different :apple:

    I generally do keep all my Apple boxes. Although since I purchased my MBP refurbished, it didn't come in the usual Apple retail box, so I didn't keep that. Otherwise, I still have my iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod boxes.

    Yes, my non-Apple friends do mock me for being an "Apple fan." Although it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    I'm not a fanboy, I hate fanboyism, especially apple one, by fanboyism I mean super high reality distortion and unjustifiable hate for anything that is not apple
    I keep my boxes for the Warranty, I sometimes use them to put stuff inside like books i don't read anymore or stuff that stays better on a box, but an Apple Keyboard, iPhone / iPad / iPod box is useless, I would trash them if I don't have the device anymore

    Apple products have good resale value and there's always an upgrade around the corner, so I keep my packaging for the eventual upgrade process. Pretty much do it with all my electronics.

    I keep boxes for all expensive items I buy (not just Apple) because it increases the resale value of the item considerably.

    I keep the boxes of all my electronics for future resale. Since I store them in my garage's attic, they don't take up livable space.
