Favorite Apple product and why?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
What's has been your favorite Apple produce ever that you have used and why? Do you still use it on a frequent basis?

Mine is my current PB G4 1.5. It's really my first Mac and I use it everyday at my small business and I bring it home at night to surf the web with.

It does everything from play my DVD's to keeping an account of my business and employee files.

    iChat + iSight

    After getting my dad an iSight to go with the new iMac he just bought... I've spoken to him more in the past few weeks then in the previous few years.

    I would say my old white iBook 500 dual USB. It was my first mac. I can OS 10.0 on it for awhile and now I've own a 15" PowerBook, 12" PowerBook, and 17" iMac G5.

    The iBook was my first mac when I switched from windows 98. Best thing I've ever done! I loved the 15" powerbook (sold it on ebay). Love my iMac. Love the 12" powerbook.

    But my iBook is serving my website right now and is still running strong.

    Only thing I dislike about Apple is their pricing for the third world. I love everything else.

    That would mean my 17" USB2.0 iMac (1.25GHz G4), my iSight camera and my iPod.

    I got my first iPod two years ago and I liked it, but at the time I didn't use it too often. Now, the iPod has totally changed my life in that it makes music in my car so much easier. I've taken out all of my CDs and it's all iPod now. It make life so much easier, and my friends like it, even though plenty of them have their own iPods. I'm always amazed at how I can't go more than a few minutes in school now without seeing someone with an iPod. It's really a cool feeling as an Apple fan.

    12" iBook G4. Only Apple hardware product that is unquestionably competetive in price. A machine I could recommend to anybody except gamers, with no hesitation.

    No, I don't have one, but I'm thinking of switching my new 15" Powerbook to the iBook for price/warranty/portability reasons.

    My little 12" ibook g3. It's small, light and does what I need it to do. May no have the best gaming performance, but that's what a desktop is for.

    My favorite so far is Airport Extreme. It provides great wireless Internet. Hasn't let me down yet!

    MacOS X. Without it, Macs would just be like any other computer, albeit with pretty styling.

    And running it on my 1.8GHz G5 with 1.5 GB of RAM is a nice experience.

    I already named iBook as the best hardware, but I also gotta say OS X is the best software. I'm not that much into iApps. I use some of them but if they weren't there, I'd use something else, no prob. Most of my frequent use programs are multiplatform (Firefox, Thunderbird, VLC, Azureus, Gaim (AdiumX runs on LibGaim)). I understand Apple makes very very good pro media apps but that's not my field.
