    Hi all,

    Interested to see what everyone thinks their next Apple purchase will be.

    For the purpose of this thread lets include 'Apple-related' purchases - bags, cases, harddrives, RAM, software, peripherals - anything you plan on using with your current/future Apple products.

    Lets see how this goes!

    ---------------------------------------------

    Me first.
    I think my next purchase will probably be some more RAM for my UMBP.
    I would've said an iPhone dock but I just got one for my bday. yay!

    I agree. I have a Power Mac G5 and a MacBook at home that I would like to consolidate into a MacBook Pro, but I'm trying to hold off as long as possible before doing so. As such, my next purchase will be Snow Leopard.

    I think my investments into Apple hard- and software have entered the "maintenance mode".

    Anyway, I will buy Snow Leopard when it is released and I will also buy an upgrade to the next major release of Aperture, should it ever see the light of day. At the moment it feels as if Apple has abandoned their killer application (and for me, Aperture -is- Apple's killer application).

    Maybe I will even purchase iWork '10, unless I decide to leave iWork behind and go back to Microsoft Office.

    I might be interested in the next releases of Logic Express and Soundtrack Pro, depending on how they will turn out to be.

    I don't care at all for iLife and I'm not in the market for any more Apple hardware, and I will most likely not even purchase the iPhone OS 3 upgrade for my 1st generation iPod Touch. I've already paid for two software upgrades for it and that's more than enough for a stupid mp3 player.

    The next apple purchase for me will be,

    1. 4 GB of memory for my new Macbook pro 13"

    2. Snowleopard

    3. Hopefully a new Ipodtouch 3rd generation

    outside of that everything else is just maintenance on what I already own.

    There will surely be something before Snow Leopard. Possibly a new Unibody 17".

    Seeing as I just bought a new display and speakers within the last few weeks, hopefully nothing for a while until 10.6 comes out (cept maybe a new video card for my Cube). Unfortunately, I'm probably kidding myself and I'll find something, "I can't live without" between now and then.
