    In the last year...
    MX518 - $55
    iphone 8 GB - $600
    invisible shield for iphone - $25
    apple wired keyboard - $50

    um... I guess that's it. I've been remarkably controlled this year. Total: $730

    oh, and my seagate freeagent pro, which was a gift ($150 or so?).

    The older pieces of my setup, when new:

    macbook core duo: $1500
    20" ACD: $1300 (was a gift, but ouch)
    ipod nano 1st gen, 4GB: $250
    ipod shuffle: $80
    HK Soundsticks: $200 (another gift)

    So I think it's about $4000-4500 all told, since 2004.

    Given that the OP posted a non-apple product (which he uses with his mac) I assumed that's what he was asking about.

    If not, then my list is...

    iphone 8GB
    apple wired KB

    I think a decent little bit of money has been spent on retail Apple products as well as general Apple-branded swag (like I've bought up store employee tees, etc.).

    I remember paying over $11k for a Mac II FX about 16 years ago.... It was hot! And the iici. Many since. Do clones count? Laserwriters? Bought two powercomputing systems. First, second third gen. lampshade iMacs.

    Since I own small company that is all Mac, I'll conservatively estimate over $100,000 since my first Macintosh 128 @ $2.5k+. Many, many in betweens leading up to todays Air, MBB, MBP and new 20" iMac, lots o' iPods.

    I'm not even going there..lol.. let's just say that bringing the memories of the good times my family has enjoyed over the many years we've been Apple users in various forms of media has been worth every penny... I think so anyway..;-)

    a year and a half ago iMac - $2100

    last pc about 4 years ago that has half the specs of my imac - $3500

    It's not that pc's are cheaper to buy, its that pc's use cheap parts. that is why they only last a year or two. i had my spendy windows machine for 3 years, had more than a dozen blue screens, and reinstalled xp every 6-12 months after it would blue screen. And by the 3rd year the motherboard finally burned up taking the processor with it.
    I have had my iMac for 1.5 years and haven't even had it freeze yet, that and i get to use OS X, which just makes life so much more enjoyable.:apple:

    i'm afraid to add up the numbers. in my defense, though, i've sold a number of items to bring the net spending down. but i'm still afraid to calculate. :eek:
