    1) The "puck" mouse.

    2) The Mighty Mouse.

    3) The decision to put the internal drive in the 24" iMac far outside the reach of any casual user wishing to upgrade it. Bleh.

    you guys dont like the puck mouse?!. to me it symbolizes the imac so it has a nolstalgic effect lol.

    i personally don't like apples keyboards (the white ones) that are currently used. they show dirt to easily and for some reason can't type as fast as a generic pc keyboard.

    I'll give you number one, and if you thought #3 was tough, try doing that on the eMac ;)

    Gotta disagree on the Mighty Mouse. I love mine (all three of them). I've never used a mouse that I like better.

    As for the puck mouse, I won't argue with you on that.

    the absolute worst design is putting eighteen feet of power cord on the new airport extreme 'n'.

    18' of cable is an incongruous abomination to apple's minimalist aesthetic design. something that is WIRELESS should not have EIGHTEEN FEET OF WIRE.

    And just how, may I ask, would you pass the information from your router to your Airport?

    I also happen to revolt how short the cable of the white keyboard is. I have a sliding tray and it's not long enough to loop around and have enough for when I slide it out. And it's pretty easy to get dirt inside it.

    True, but cleaning it is easy. Boring as hell, yes, but easy :) mine looks like new!

    Ill go with the mighty mouse. I get Inadvertent/ unresponsive clicks all the time. Perhaps its just too advanced for my one button mouse-using self. And the roller-ball sucks

    PowerMac 8100/8500/9100/9500 case.

    20 minutes, 10 cables and totally remove the motherboard just to upgrade RAM.

    Ugliest Mac: Tossup between the 4400 and the G3 All in One.

    *puts on flame retardant clothing*

    ... well, someone has to say it.

    The G4 Cube.

    It was overpriced, underpowered, and the vent on the top BAD IDEA.

    Moving along, I really don't like the original PM G3 (beige box, anyone?)



    I LOVE those things. Puck hater. :mad: ;)

    I actually liked it. Have you ever upgraded the Ram on one of those babies? Absolutely brilliant. Fast and easy, not to mention eye-popping to do in in front of a PC user :rolleyes:

    It's a black Pro Keyboard, and doesn't have the "key press" problems that the new Keyboard has.

    Indeed, the G3 AIO reflected the American spirit; Bigger is better. It especially deserves first place when it's clear plastic case starts to yellow. Ugh!! :mad:
