Curious how much you spend or budget per year on your workstation and attached peripherals (storage, displays, etc). For example, if you buy a $3000 Mac Pro every 3 years, you're spending an average of $1000 per year. If you spend another $1000 over that 3 year period on upgrades, then your yearly spend is an average of $1333. If you spend another $1000 on a display that lasts two cycles (6 years), then that only contributes $166 to your annual spend. So what is it? In my case... 2009 Mac Pro Quad $3300 Dual 24" ACD Displays $1800 Additional GPU $200 Initial SSD storage $800 Current SSD storage $900 Spinning disk storage $200 Most of this (all but the spinning disk) I expect to recycle this year, so my spend over 4 years has been $7000 or about $1750 per year. Note, I'm not counting misc. parts less than a couple hundred dollars nor am I adding my Audio Interface and Monitors which should last much longer and not be a significant contributor.
