    1) So none of that is used for personal use?
    2) Your girl works for you?

    Because both of those questions affect the deductibility of your expenses...

    my family's total expenses include an iPad 2 at $400, the new iPad at $500, a smart case at $50, an iPhone 4S at $100, and now an iPhone 5 at $200. my parents also each got an iPod shuffle at $50 each and I got an iPod touch at the beginning of the year at $200. all that comes out to around $1,550 pre-tax, and with .06 PA sales tax included it is $1,643. adding up all of my iTunes purchases it could easily surpass $2,000. my family was basically apple-ized this year :) now bring on the macs!!! :D :apple:

    Uhh... I bought an rMBP so that basically is $3k right there and $400 for the phone so yeah. I also bought my cousin a 15" MBP which was another $2k.

    I bought the iPad 2 last year. I'm good for apple products for a couple years I think.

    "You can only deduct the percentage of use deemed business use only. As nice as it would be to deduct it all, I would strongly recommend you don't."

    -Says my Sis-in-law CPA sitting beside me :)

    Would have to agree as well. Not handing out legal advice, just a friendly notice.

    Under $300, I'd say. Maybe $400 at the very most.

    iPhone 5- $570, iPad 3- $550, AppleTV- $99 (don't remember the tax on that one), plus various apps/movies/music probably around the $100 mark total for this year. $1319 total. The iPad I can write off for school use, or so I've heard since I did actually buy it intended for mostly school use during the education promotion.

    $600 ipad 3
    $300 iphone 4s
    $300 iphone 5
    $100 apple tv
    $300 in various cases


    It was a slow year. When the retina macbook air, and imac come out my wallet will hurt for sure. Then again MBA is so powerful I may just get one of those, and a cinema display.

    I give myself a $3,500 budget per year to spend on electronics. Higher then is practical but I enjoy them so whatevs. I'm taking it easy this year getting ready to replace my TV, and computers in 2013.

    I get to wright off a good chunk, but it isn't anywhere near dollar for dollar in return.

    The thing about apple is how strong the resale is. If you play the contract game on the iphone, you may be able to upgrade for free, and buying macs refurb, and selling on CL every 2-3 years is a pretty low expenditure, compared to buying quickly depreciating gear, like audio, and PCs.
