I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

My Ever-Growing Apple Collection

Since I plan on picking up some more laptops to beef up my collection, I figured I’m going to need some more space.

I can then fill up those shelves with laptops and keep all the computers together.

I ran to Home Depot and picked up an 8 foot shelf. I had to move the frames down 9 inches in order to make room for some of the bigger boxes. I wanted to leave a 15” clearance in case I decide in the future to put the iBook and PowerBook boxes up there.
