    I know people have talked about people's ages here alot... but I did a quick calculation and I know the average age of macrumors forum users... at least of those who actually supplied a birthday. (2567 out of 12000).

    any guesses?

    I say 23...seems to take into account the large amount of teenagers, offset a little by the few "old timers"...

    Plus it's the closest to my age. ;)

    26, cause I'm older than that, and want to think that I am not alone.

    not so many spring chickens

    if you check just for this month on this neat little gadget called "calendar" you will see that only 19 of thoes who have Birthday this month are under 20 years old.

    so I go for 26 as average :p

    I voted for 23...

    Sure, there are several young users, but I have noticed some *experienced* members aboard as well. I don't need to mention names.

    Re: not so many spring chickens

    that's a hoot, you are a baby boomer like me and dukestreet (who's right on the cusp of boomer and gen x), but we are the statistical outliners and several standard deviations off the norm

    there would have to be a lot of us to bring the average age up to 26...23 sounds a little high to me also...so i voted for 20

    many who live at home as teens have fewer expenses and more free time to post, unless they work late like me or have a computer on the job and oodles of dead time like many corporations have, especially these days in the bear market

    i wonder what arn's calculations say...also, older folk like you and me are often more reluctant to state our age...notice i don't state my age...i will be forty next year and my wife asks why the heck i belong on an online teenage (IMMATURE/ARROGANT) mac fan club:p ;) :eek:

    he he...i can't believe 26 got the most votes so far

    but wait 'til the kids get back from school and then we will see where the vote stands:p

    us old folk are logging in from our boring jobs where we have to support younguns in the schools so they can buy their ps2 games and wear expensive clothes:p

    LOL, do I sense resentment that you are no longer a child (such as I, 15)?

    Are you sure you are not talking about the number of frames per second in standard video production?

    Did you also count Beej in for being 100? :D
    [Ah, nuts. Rowdawg beat me to it in seconds.]

    Well, I guess it would make sense, since it's the young people, who make their prominence on the forums known, and post their BDays.

    But, as I said, there have been a few members I have talked with on the forums with at least 30 years of experience on the boards. Obviously, they don't post as often.


    Well, arn... got any more lotto polls? :p
