For those who exchange presents at Christmas, I'm curious what's on your Mac Christmas wish list? :) (Links and/or pictures please!)

Something I hope to see in my stocking this year is Time Magazine's Special edition on Steve Jobs. I briefly looked at a few pages in the grocery store, and it had a lot of great images in it.



While I don't think I'll be on Santa's good list for this, I would love to get a 13" MacBook Air.

Well, I ordered the top-end iPad2 from Aeroplan using my miles, so I am set for Christmas. :)

Cheers

I am at a point where I have everything. MacBook Pro, 27 inch iMac, iPad 2, iPhone 4S. Not sure what more I could actually use. Plus the old macs kicking around the house, lampshade iMac, old iBooks.

I will be upgrading my MacBook Pro with the new refresh that comes out hopefully in the spring, but other then that I am set.

For the motorbike, thats whole other story :)

Sadly, my Mac List includes replacing my iMacs DVD burner, (probably with external) and finally being forced into Snow leopard (and maybe Lion) though more likely a new iMac in the coming year... I hate it when stuff i use stops working when I want to buy stuff I don't have....

I'd like an iPad 2, iPhone 4S and even though its not a Mac product a new AiO would be nice too! I suddenly have a lot of time on my hands these days and an iPad would be nice to carry around the house instead of my iPhone.

Otherwise I'm quite happy with my Mac Mini and collection of older Macs. Trouble is finding a use for them really. Any practical uses for an LC 475?

Oh oh almost forgot! The Time magazine listed above would be cool as would the biography too! Any of those on iBooks or new stand yet?

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. :(

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.

I got my iPod Touch 32GB 4th gen all on AirMIles, a few months back and love it so much it's melded as part of me now. 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.
