Tough one, at the time, I thought the original Macintosh128k and the classic design still holds a soft spot

Favorite is the MacBook Air or iMac g4.

If anyone votes for one of those iPods with than annoying mirror thing on the back they are crazy.

The poll says the original iPhone was plastic. It was aluminium with a plastic strip.

This makes me feel like a fanboy (it's also like asking a parent what child it likes most). The key to Apple's success has been its iconic designs and that design ethos, with the exception of the dark period of the nineties, has led to so many designs that are unmatched in terms of sheer numbers by any other consumer products company. The fact that we can all make valid arguments as to why one design should be considered the best only emphasizes the ability of the Apple design team over the years.

All I hope is that they can keep it up and I look forward to the magic of the redesigned Mac Pro.

The eMac, but only from the front. Once you see its a 50 lb bulb with really no easy way to carry it a medium-long distance (such as from my car to a 2nd story apartment) you start to hate them.
