What Apple Mac Products do you own?

Post by Rave » Sat Dec 04, 2010 4:11 pm

Macbook (early 2007) - my first mac product - thanks to Vista being shit - I have never turned back

iPhone 3G

iPod Nano (for the video camera)

Mac Mini 2GHz 4GB Ram (March 2009) - needed slightly more power and a backup setup - it is now my media center

iPad (May 2010)

iMac 27" i7 1TB 8GB RAM (Aug 2010) - I think I will be sorted for a LONG time with this

Magic Pad - the business. Miles better than a mouse

I just got one, it's great. It's my first Mac and I'm not very savvy yet. I did figure out the most important things, how to install Maschine & Live :)

I think I will get a Mac for Dummies book today.

I've got a 2007 (white) Macbook which is still going strong(-ish) & 8gb iPhone 3G.

Will probably upgrade to a Macbook Pro next year when/if the entry level model gets an 'I' processor revision.

I hear you! I probably will want an actual book too, but I need to see what's online.

Did the 20 year old chick at the mac store you went into have big tits?
That's pretty much my Apple purchases for the last 12 years.

Only because it's sort of amusing, I have a 512 mac plus, a 400ghz G4 Power Mac, neither are really working though. My step father wanted an old dual Gig G4 I had, but doesn't have the room to set it up, so it's hooked up to the router to become a music hub for the house. I've had the same macbook Pro 2.4ghz for 4 years now.

Mostly I sell the mac I'm replacing to offset the cost of a new one. One of the reasons people who complain about the cost of new Macs don't know what they're talking about. Generally what with looking around for the deals you can find, and selling your old one, it's about a $1000 out of pocket expenses for a $2700 laptop.

You new adopters are weird though, I get it sort of, but in the end it's just a computer, personally I just haven't ever used PCs for music, and don't think I would like the experience, too many variables at the OS level.

So the question is "what Apple products do you own?"?

I've got the AyePhone 3GS, and I'm quite happy with it. For this type of devices, I think Apple's OS paradigm works just fine.
There are limitations to what kind of functionality I want from a phone, and the AyePhone covers it all and more.

I've also got an old, first generation AyePod Nano, which I never use.

As for computer use, I simply cannot stand Macs and their OS. (I'm not starting anything here; I've been using Macs for
years at school and work, and I just can't stand them.)
