I personally enjoy having the computer speak back to me... It's like having my own Stephen Hawking puppet.

Hardware: Original Bondi Blue iMac. It's such a classic (tm)
Software: Either OS X or Final Cut Pro

The iPod, OS X, the dual USB iBook (when it was first released).

iBook Dual USB (Original)
iMac DV SE (Original)
I picked these 4 because I bought each without any hesitation.

1. The IIfx. It stomped all over the Wintels of the time. Apple even specially designed super-high-speed RAM to use in it!
2. The original PowerMac G4. The IIfx all over again - classified as a weapon by the U.S. government, that was a great ad!
3. The Plus. A timeless classic. The Plus was affordable by most people and it was the first expandable Mac - you could add an external SCSI hard drive, up to 3 MB more RAM, or any number of other SCSI peripherals. On top of that, it was fanless and super-durable. It was also in production for longer than any other Apple computer.
4. The iMac, in general. Early on, at least, the iMac has represented the ultimate hope for Apple. It's very visible to consumers. Unlike the bad Performa years, the iMac is designed to be a low cost but powerful computer that anyone can afford and use. It's not just a Pro machine with artificial barriers and cost-cutting limitations. After 2000 the iMac was getting a bit long in the tooth but Apple has kept it alive with the LCD iMac. iMacs have been produced for about four years, just short of the four year, ten month lifespan of the Plus.

Hands down, best Apple product ever is the MessagePad 2100. Unless you've owned one, you just won't understand.

The cube and the message pad, two products that Apple found impossible to sustain, both considered great, both miserable failures. Doesn't bode well for the future, does it?

To me (and I've thought this for a while now), the iBook is, IMO, the best thing Apple has ever done. They took everything that made the iMac cool (style, color, forward-thinking I/O, etc.) and put it into a laptop that begged to be paraded around.
Of course, I'm talking about the original "toilet seat" iBooks. And I was happy with those (owned a tangerine one myself for a short while).
But when the white, dual-USB "iChiclet" iBooks came out in May 2001, I was even MORE impressed. No wasted space, even tougher construction (but smaller and lighter), etc.
And now (with last week's updates), I think the iBook is the one thing Apple does that totally hits it out of the park in regards to price, performance, style, etc.
All their stuff rocks of course, but the stuff that's really cool is very expensive. Or it's underpowered for the money you spend. But the iBook (especially now that one can be had for $999!) just nails it.
I just love them (and I don't even own one...go figure).
Second would be the iPod. Think about what it does and represents: every piece of music you own (or even THOUGHT about owning) in the palm of your hand or your jacket pocket.
This is why I love Apple. They do it first, they do it better. Everyone else pops in 6 months after the fact and half-asses it for the masses.
I'll stick with the real thing and the original.
Goes beyond see-through, curvy plastic, people...
Okay, third runner up: Jaguar
Yes, I just installed it last week and love everything about it. What OS X should've been all along.
