    For fun.

    Who keeps all their apple boxes - iPhone box probably, but what about accessories like your dock? old iPod boxes etc.

    Do you "display" them?

    Let's see... :D

    - iPhone 3G white
    - Universal Dock
    - AirPort Express
    - OS X Leopard
    - iPod nano 4GB 3rd Gen.
    - MacBook (see sig)
    - the little box from inside the MacBook box
    - Apple In-Ear Headphones
    - USB power adapter (wall plug)

    And even though they aren't Apple products, I still have the VMware Fusion and Nintendo DS boxes.

    The things that come in little bags, like Firewire cables, dock adapters, mini-DVI converters, etc, I don't keep the bags for. The line has to be drawn somewhere. ;)

    I have the 3G dock, but my dad bought it in Indianapolis (we live outside of Detroit) so he just threw the box away :/

    but he gave me the dock :D

    I dumped the box my Apple II+ came in, but think I still have the box my 1984 Mac 128k (later upgraded to a 512Ke) came in somewhere in the attic. I don't have room to keep all the boxes that the SE/30, Powerbook Duo 210, 7100, 5300, Beige G3 Tower, and 2 iBooks came in, so I've thrown several of those out already. It's a lot easier to keep iPhone and iPod boxes.

    I usually keep the boxes for most everything.

    However, I've had to modify that practice since being in Japan. Space is a premium.

    I used to when I was younger, but not anymore. They just cause clutter.

    if you sell on eBay you should keep EVERY BOX (and everything in it) of whatever you buy. buyers tend to gravitate to items that have the original box/documentation.

    Okay, you're worse than me. I was just about to respond that I had boxes from like 1997 but you win. :D

    I do have all of my iPhone-related boxes of course.

    I keep all my boxes, actually the plastic is still on the top of my iphone 3G box when the Apple salesguy opened it he carefully opened it by cutting the plastic around the bottom and left the plastic around the top of the box so it almost looks as if my iphone 3G box is unopened.

    That's a good point.

    If you want to sell it later, then keep all the original items and the box.

    Guilty. Though, the eBay thing is a definite contributing factor.

    I have over 230 Apple boxes. I have so many that I've had to start throwing away the duplicates. But I keep the boxes as long as I keep the products (unless I have more than one of something), most of which I've never sold or have retired.

    My Apple display boxes take up too much (insert profanity of your choice here) space, as does the Power Mac box.
