I got home from class one day and I was taking all of the stuff out of my pockets. I realized that if I included the stuff in my backpack also, the worth of all of the stuff I carry on me every day is rather high.

$300 mp3 player
$150 cell phone
$1000 laptop
$130 calculator
$80 watch

Eeek. What about you folks? I never really thought about it before...

Cell phone, dunno how much it's worth, but I paid $100 for it when I signed the plan.

Other than that, $350 key fob for my Passat.

My BlackBerry Pearl is free from work.

Um... My 2GB Micro SD card in it cost me $20.


That's about it for electronics that are always with me.

Except for my G-Shock watch I sometimes wear on casual days, which was about $50.

So $70 total max.

Sometimes my laptop, which cost $950 quite a few years ago. 2GHz P4 Compaq without a battery, and its mass rivals that of a small neutron star.
