I'm hoping for an iPad 3 and/or a redesigned MacBook Pro.

Something tells me that I won't be getting anything Mac related under the tree this year.
iPhone 4 32 GB (me) iPhone 4 16 GB (wife)
iPad Wi-Fi + 3G 64 GB
Macbook Pro 2.4 GHz 4 GB Ram - Macbook 2.2 GHz 4 GB Ram
iPod Touch 2G 32 GB, several iPods from different generations
Apple TV 40GB x2

I'd like a bluetooth keyboard/case for my iPad2.

Maybe an Apple TV 2 will be under the tree from SantaMac this year

Other then that maybe some Ram for my Macbook Pro... but that would be a gift to myself.

We don't exchange store-bought gifts, but I do often use Christmas as a rationalisation for buying myself something special.

This year, I'm keeping my eye out for a MacBook Air, for breaks at the local cafe.

iTunes gift cards provide me with a whole year of entertainment and family members keep my supply maintained between BDs, Fathers Day and Christmas. I need little else at my age, but could not live without my Mac stuff.

Already got it, my internal optical drive was starting to get flaky, so the misses bought me a new Lacie FW LightScribe external burner.
Works really well and it shares itself among our 4 Apple systems.

Why didn't you just pick up the $5.00 magazine when you saw it? I believe it was sold out with-in a few days everywhere, I got my copy from a convenience store and that was the last copy they had....the clerk/owner was quit happy with sales of that edition...

If your looking for it now you may even have to pay more, not sure where your gonna find except e-Bay.

Time also came out with a commemorative issue a few weeks ago, I looked at it and found it had nothing more to add or any additional value to hundreds of other articles out there already, looked more like a money gouging issue.

The above Time magazine although not entirely on Steve was much better, and felt like they were honoring him rather than making a quick buck on his grave, the cover pic was much better also.

Want to do the same thing for the iPad 2 as a Christmas gift on AirMiles but they sold out quickly. Great way to save money using AirMiles or other points systems eh? Only way I'm getting a gift this Christmas!

If someone were to get their 1st gen iPod Nano replaced on the recall then sell it to me in the price range of the Shuffle, it would be a great Christmas gift. Even if it arrived after Christmas.

In the work area I am currently using erasable CDs on a MP3 disc player, patched through an old 1970s stereo receiver. Like being able to continuously change playlist and order. Works fine in summer but does not like the colder winter temps, so an iPod within a very limited budget would solve a problem.

Would just buy a Shuffle but that would mean a rather steep expense of upgrading from Tiger to Leopard, adding another Gig of RAM and having to abandon the free version of WireTap. Money not well spent on a 7 year old computer.
