Every geek big or small, young or not so young may use the back-to-school season as an excuse/reason to splurge on that new gadget they’ve been waiting on or holding out for. Even if you’re not a student, there are often some great deals to be had as companies and manufacturers far and wide want to cash in on the spending spree that takes place every year ’round the time the bell’s start to ring. Since we live in the digital age, it seems fitting that as we move towards more and mroe digital devices, a gadget back to school list be created. Time magazine has done just that, though, some of the options are rather pricey meaning only those with hard to find money trees will complete the list.

The list includes:

  • Macbook Pro
  • Kensington Combo Saver Lock
  • LiveScribe Plus Smartpen
  • Microsoft Explorer Mini Mouse
  • Brita Ultramax Water Dispenser
  • Logitech N100 Cooling Pad

In case you were wondering, buying one of everything on the list will add a minimum of $5015 up front to your plastic card of choice will associated data plans, needed extra software, and other hidden expenses will only increase the total. What would you add/remove from the list?
