The Apple Watch starts at $349, which is pretty expensive for a smartwatch. But compared to the high-end, 18-karat edition, it's a bargain. Apple is asking $10,000 for that watch, which is more than 4 iPhones, a new iPad Mini, MacBook, iMac and a load of accessories. To make it an apples to apples comparison, we've done all our shopping on Apple.com.
4 iPhone 6 devices -- $796
The iPhone 6 starts at $199, and since we are trying to get to $10,000, let's be generous and spend $796 and hand out the phone to an entire family of four.
4 leather cases -- $180
We need four leather cases to go with the new iPhones. These Apple-designed cases are $45 each.
iPad Mini 3 -- $499
Enjoy the iPad Mini 3, 64 GB edition. We chose the gold finish.
The new MacBook -- $1,599
It's smaller, lighter, faster and beautiful, boasted Apple CEO Tim Cook at the Apple event on Monday, March 9, 2015. The new MacBook with the 1.2 GHz processor and retina display will cost about 16 percent of the high end Apple Watch.
15-inch carrier -- $79.95
The Brenthaven 15-inch carrier for the MacBook is $79.95.
AirPort Express -- $99
With all these new devices, the AirPort Express, which will deliver Wi-Fi throughout the house, will come in handy.
Apple TV -- $69
The Apple TV has come down in price right as it adds HBO Now. It's $69. Please note, the HBO service costs an additional $14.99 per month. We won't factor that in here.
iMac -- $1,799
The 27-inch iMac is $1,799, and we are still trying to get to $10,000, so let's take it. If you're really shopping for an iMac, please note, the 21.5-inch edition is a cheaper $1,099.
Apple Watch -- $349
All right, we will take one Apple Watch. The $349 version.
Beats Solo2 -- $199
The Beats Solo2 On-Ear headphones will come in handy when the person next to you on the Long Island Rail Road is screaming into his watch about how much he hates his boss. At $199, let's just take it.
GoPro4 Silver Edition -- $399.95
Oh, look, you can record the guy talking into his watch, too. The GoPro 4 Silver Edition is $399.95. Deal.
Mac Pro -- $2,999
The Mac Pro is all powerful, with a 3.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5 processor. While it's a desktop, it is a beast. Let's drop the $2,999.
Gift Card to Apple.com -- $932.10
There is no room left in our Apple cart, but we still need to spend $932.10 before we match the cost of a $10,000 Apple Watch. We will hold on to it for now -- and perhaps wait for the cost of the watch to drop.
