    Sorry if this has been posted i couldn't find anything similar.

    I thought it would be fun to see how much money we have all spent on Apple products or on computers in general.

    Macbook bought in 07 $1800
    5g iPod bought in 07 $250?
    Various iTunes purchases $125
    iPod mini $200?
    Total $2375

    I don't remember the exact prices though.

    I'm also curious to see who has spent the most on Apple products.

    Perhaps this will give some of us a reality check on how much we've spent.:D

    Not too much actually beings that I don't have an Apple computer...yet. It seems as though that may change soon due to all these rumors about a tablet and who knows...

    $220- ipod mini 4gb blue (long time ago)
    $330- 8gb ipod touch (don't have anymore)
    $366- 16gb white iphone 3g with dock and anti-glare cover

    Total = about $916

    Sixteen years of expenses is too much to calculate. I'd guess somewhere around $45.000, with an $9.500 power mac G5 being the biggest chunk of that cost. That's not including what I've spent on iTunes, which is a lot (thousands). :eek:

    Jobs, Amelio, Sculley, and Spindler owe me... big time.

    Not bad for someone who has an income of £0... (that said, I saved up for my iMac for 9 months by selling my old lego sets on ebay. There's good money in it! xD)

    iPhone 8GB - $599 (sold for $406 on eBay)
    black 16GB iPhone 3G -$299

    So I've spent $900 plus tax just for the iPhone! I've been trying to justify getting a Mac, but PCs are just better values all around, especially for upgradability.

    Between my Performa 575, Powermac G3, iMac G4, PB G4, printers, software, accessories [mice, kb, iSight, cables], iPods and various pieces of s/w, I guesstimate around $20,000 or so.

    EDIT: I selected $10,001-$20,000 in the poll, although I might be just over $20,000 if I really went to the trouble to sit down and work it out. Spent all that money, but I still want more.
