My mind was wandering this morning and it dawned on me that I carry a ridiculous wealth of electronics in my backpack when I travel:
+ Take.TV, 4GB, $100
+ DS Lite, $150 (with at least $100 in games)
+ PSP, $170 (with at least $100 in games)
+ iPod Nano, 4GB, 2nd gen., $250
+ Amazon Kindle, $400
+ Macbook Pro, 15", refurb. w/ram upgrade, $2500
Unless my math is wrong -- and keep in mind my degree is in music composition, so it's well withing the realm of likelihood -- that sums up to nearly $4,000, not accounting for depreciation.
Lest you get the wrong impression that I'm mister moneybags, all but the laptop were gifts.
Here's to hoping none of my faithful readers are tempted to mug me at the next convention.
