Doug has an income of $124,000 a year and is comfortable with technology. He uses a iMac desktop for work, but also owns a Macbook, a recent iPad, and an older iPhone, all of which he brings with him when he travels for work.

Whenever she can, she’ll detour through the Willo section of town to admire the 1920s homes there, and she often checks the real estate section for homes for sale there, which she’ll sometimes show her boyfriend over breakfast. Sandra has an income of $45,000 a year. She uses an HP desktop at work but has her own Macbook Air, an iPad 2, a Kindle, and the latest iPhone.
