    Imagine this. You walk into an Apple store, and an alarm goes off, and suddenly your surrounded by geniuses all shouting 'You're our 10,000,000th customer!'. Party poppers are going off, banners are floating down from the ceiling, confetti is showering everywhere. Then the manager walks up to you and shakes your hand, informing you that you have £5,000 free to spend on whatever you like in the Apple store that same day. You are unable to leave and purchase more stuff another day, you have to spend as much of the £5,000 you can before you leave. When you leave, whatever remains becomes void.


    What do you buy?
    Your total amount must come as close to the £5,000 mark as possible...

    Attached is a list of the products I'd buy for my dream setup..

    Using today's 1.59:1 exchange rate of GBP to USD, with just under $8000, I would buy the following...

    For the wife:
    $2499: MacBook Air (1.86GHz Core2Duo)

    For me:
    $2614: MacBook Pro 15" (+320GB 7200rpm, 2.93GHz Core2Duo upgrade)
    $799: 24" Apple LED Cinema Display
    $2014: iMac 24" 2.93GHz (+4850, 3.06GHz Core2Duo upgrade) retains 640GB HDD

    Total = $7926

    Note, I was using Education discount (since I qualify, why not? :)) on the MBP, iMac and LED... MBA wouldn't qualify under the Education discount purchase quantity limit.

    I'd grab a high-end MBP and a ACD with a wireless keyboard and mouse.
