    For once, I'm not quite sure what I want from apple this holiday season.
    I have a one-year-old 24" iMac so no computers on my list this year, I have a first-gen iPhone but I think at this point it makes sense to wait for June, and I have a nice pair of noise canceling headphones. I was thinking to buy something in the $300-400 range. Maybe an Apple TV? The idea does sound appealing- it's almost like a DVR but it has it's advantages and disadvantages. I mean the iPod Touch is pretty cool but I feel like and iPhone and an iPod Touch (correct me if I'm wrong) are a silly combination. Any ideas?

    Maybe ask for cash and save it up for something else?

    Do you have an external hard drive? A Time Capsule might be nice...

    Great Idea

    I love my 1TB time capsule too.

    Why not consider a gift card for the store (not iTunes), and later, you can put the money toward something else.

    cash is king. especially in this global crapdown of the economy and warming of the earth. maybe buy some stocks at dirt cheap prices and watch it rise?

    I have a 1TB time capsule- and unfortunately I lost a bit of money the last time I invested with apple about a year ago (oh how things change) but I'm still holding on to my shares. Maybe I should wait until macbook- maybe a new cool netbook will come out?
