So we were wondering: How much would it cost the ultimate Samsung fan if they could spend all they wanted on each of Samsung's highest-end devices?

In December — as a sort of thought experiment — CNN Business calculated what it would cost to buy all the most expensive Apple gadgets (if anyone ever actually did such a thing). The answer: Nearly $80,000.

  Zack Martin activated from IR, could return if Cowboys make playoffs The Cowboys are already down Tyron Smith and La’el Collins for the season, but Martin’s return would be an obvious boon for their chances at a playoff upset — if they are to qualify. The team has won three straight games to move into this position. A Cowboys win over the Giants and an Eagles win over Washington would secure Dallas an unlikely NFC East title.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Samsung's biggest fan would pay more.

Phone

At $1,999.99, Samsung's latest foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 with 5G, is the most expensive phone in the company's current lineup. (Note: Samsung is currently offering site-wide discounts, so this article includes prices as they are listed on its site as of Thursday. Trade-ins can lower prices even more.)

Released in September, the device features a 6.2-inch front screen and a 7.6-inch inner screen when the device is unfolded, a helpful feature if you frequently find yourself working, gaming or watching video content on the go. The folding display is coupled with software features that Samsung says will help users to multitask, including the ability to have multiple apps open simultaneously.

Add four years extended warranty and wall mount service, for a total of $62,669.98.

Total: $62,669.98

Kitchen appliances

Samsung has long been a household name when it comes to appliances, and in recent years it's decked out some products, such as the standard fridge, with features like voice control and AI.

While Samsung sells "kitchen packages" that include a fridge, gas range, dishwasher and microwave that help you save a few hundred dollars, let's just posit that you purchase your items separately, over time, as you gradually replace older appliances. The company also charges extra fees to install the appliances and haul away your old ones, as well as for Samsung Care+ coverage.

Family Hub Refrigerator

This 22-cubic-foot smart fridge retails for $4,799, but is on sale for $4,099. It costs slightly more than its bigger cousin, as this shallower version is best suited in kitchens with a narrow fridge space. It costs an extra $129.99 to extend the warranty by three years.

The fridge works with a water filter that's compatible only with Samsung's, and a three pack will set you back $129.99. The Family Hub is a stainless steel fridge that lets you create shopping lists using voice command, and you can see inside it without opening the doors via 3 built-in cameras.

Dishwasher

Samsung's matching stainless steel dishwasher retails for $1,049 and is on sale for $749.

Oven

Excluding Samsung's bundle deals for an oven and a microwave, the most expensive oven on Samsung's website goes for $4,199, but it's on sale for $3,779. You can convert the oven into two sections to cook two dishes at different temperatures simultaneously.

Microwave

Samsung sells a matching smart microwave for $499.

Cooktop

The 36-inch induction cooktop costs $2,499 and it has a virtual flame that makes it look like a gas stove. It's also Bluetooth-enabled with digital controls.

Range

Say you also want a classic gas range and not just the induction cooktop. Samsung sells a $3,339 gas range that comes with air fry capabilities.

Total for Kitchen: $15,223.98

Laundry (and miscellaneous)

After sprucing up your kitchen, how about some shiny new appliances for the laundry room?

Washer-Dryer Set

Samsung's Smart Flex washer and dyer set in black stainless steel typically retails for $3,998 but is currently on sale for $3,597.98. The machines boast the ability to do two separate loads of laundry at the same time. And -- if you have kids — the finish is fingerprint resistant.

Air Dresser

This dresser steams and refreshes your clothes, for a price tag of $1,149. It uses filtered water and can be controlled through the Samsung SmartThings app.

Vacuum

Samsung sells a variety of vacuums. The priciest set costs $748 and includes a stick vacuum with an accessory that automatically empties the dustbin. Samsung also announced a new robot vacuum, the JetBot 90, earlier in January, but did not specify its price.

Air Purifier

A voice enabled and Wi-Fi connected air purifier goes for $549.

SmartThings Wi-Fi Pack

To help connect all those devices, Samsung charges $279.99 for three devices that offer mesh Wi-Fi throughout a large home. This router can be the connective hub for all of your smart gadgets and appliances.

Total for Laundry (and miscellaneous): $6,323.97

How much am I spending?

If you really decked out your home and life with Samsung-only products, you would rack up quite a bill. And you'd be locked into using Samsung's AI assistant Bixby, which came to market later than its competitors from Apple, Amazon and Google.

You would have a matching stainless steel set of shiny new appliances, though, and a bunch of high-end devices.

After adding up the costs of all the home appliances and various Samsung tech gadgets, the shopping list comes to a grand total of $90,879.77, minus installation and other fees for the appliances (the massive TV accounts for most of the cost). For a home to fit all these items, it'll probably have to be a big one.

Grand total: $90,879.77
