What About...

...adding 'buy price', 'acquired from (e.g. Apple, eBay)' and 'status when acquired (e.g. dead, alive)', specs when acquired (as opposed to specs 'now')? ; TheNeil 17:11, 05 September 2007 (UTC)
Honestly, I don't know how useful this would be. An infobox is supposed to be a brief, useful snapshot of pertinent info. If someone wants to know the full history of your machine, don't you think they'll read the whole page? Price and source (this is part of the MLA site after all!) might be interesting though…. ⇔ ChristTrekker z 23:04, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Use multiple times on one page?

Can this template be used multiple times on one page, so as to demonstrate different "states" of our machines, like theNiel suggested. It would be cool to have as-acquired and current versions of this infobox for some of my systems. --Cory5412 22:05, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
I can't see that it would hurt anything. The only "unusual" thing the template does (IIRC) is add the page to Category:Members' machines, and multi-inclusion won't affect that. ⇔ ChristTrekker z 22:53, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
