    Nice to dream isnt it.

    But why would you need all the ipods? You couldn't carry them all, unless you are planning on starting a Apple museum it would be pretty useless, better spending the money on itunes purchases and External drives to store them on.

    If I won the lottery I would buy a fully loaded Mac Pro (not that I need that much computer, but why not do it with all that free money from the lotto?) and a 15" Macbook Pro.

    Of course that would be AFTER I pay off my mortgage, put lots of money aside for my children's education and make proper financial arrangements so that one day I can retire.

    Sorry but I never really experienced the PPC age of macs and I wonder why people say that they hate how apple switched to intel or how they want a G5 powerbook. What was so great about PPC compared to current intels?

    I've used G5 powermacs in my schools multimedia and design labs (we have a mix of G5's and mac pros) and i always hate working on them because their deathly slow even compared to my MBP.

    Id have to have a Lisa and an original Mackintosh - nostalga for me :)

    (and Id want them mint) + I'd have a cube for its looks and an LCII also)

    yeh Id probably be getting a bunch of 30"'ers for my Mac Pro too, but the special bit would definatley be the original mac.

    There is always stealing iPhones, Macbooks, etc. and leveraging that to run an eBay scam.

    I'd buy a life. And maybe a gold plated toilet.

    Didn't you hear, Hong Kong jeweler Lam Sai-wing, owner of the 6 ton solid gold bathroom is melting it down.

    Only thing he is keeping is the toilet.

    Edit: Oops, he just died not too long ago. :(

    The G5 PowerBook is more of a joke at Apples inability to release one as the G5 ran way to hot.

    If I won the lottery I'd buy a base end Mac Pro, with 2 graphics cards and two more Apple 20" displays, making three. 4 Gig of ram, 1TB HD, nothing special. Just to do my work. Then again I wouldn't need to would I… ;)

    I'd buy a fully-loaded Mac Pro with two of the Quattro nVidia graphics cards. And 4 30" ACDs with wireless keyboard/mouse. And maybe an iPhone 3G white plus all the accessories. Most expensive Bose sound system and a 50" Bravia TV wall mounted lol. Then comes the fully-loaded MBA and 15" MBP.

    I'd get a Macpro, Macbook Pro 15", and an iMac 24" (All of them pimped up to the max).

    Then I won't worry about working, so I'll do a PhD and get a job in Apple. Then 15 years later hopefully I can replace Steve Jobs.... When he retired...

    If I won the lottery ...

    I believe 'buying' the other lottery companies (inc. the company of the winning lottery) are excellent candidates.

    I would only buy a MacBook Pro and an iPhone 3G. Don't see the reason to buy a Mac Pro.

    I wouldn't buy any new computers, I'm more than happy with my Mac Pro/MacBook combination.
