    Got only my Touch 16 GB. Got lucky to be able to buy it in US for their super low price of 400$, instead of paying the local price (780$)...

    Zero.

    The only things I'm interested in buying from Apple
    are laptops and iPods, and I bought each a year ago.
    If their hardware isn't defective, I won't make another
    Apple purchase for another several years. Fingers crossed.

    Look down, plus Apple Care.

    Non-Apple is my Elephant FW drive for Time Machine, so I guess in a way it really should count.

    Well this is my first year getting into all the apple stuff (excluding ipods and iphone last year).

    Everything I have bought from an Apple Retail store (so far) 2008:
    +8gb iPod touch = $319 + tax
    +16gb iPod touch = $419 + tax
    +Airport Express = $99 + tax
    +Aluminum Keyboard = $79 + tax
    +20" 2.66 iMac (w/ wireless keyboard + mouse) = $1550 + tax
    +Apple Care = $139 + tax
    +Wired keyboard = $44 + tax
    +.Mac = $89 + tax
    Apple Products Total = $2,299 + tax
    +Logitech v470 mouse = $59 + tax
    +Printer = $179 + tax
    Others total = $238 + tax
    Subtotal = $2,537
    -iPod touch (16gb back-to-school) rebate = $319
    -Printer rebate = $99

    Total = $2,119 + tax


    Future purchases (in the next 6 months):
    +MacBook/Pro/Air (haven't decided) << will be for my birthday (parents+savings+gift cards) :)
    +Apple Care

    I think that is pretty reasonable for everything I have gotten plus the 16GB iPod wasn't for me. The rebates definitely helped, but tax is a b**** in Canada.

    That post made me remember a friends response to the 2nd amendment (which is the right to bear arms) "so you mean we have the right to go up to any bear and take it's arms?"

    puns make me smile!
