    I thought this would be an interesting poll to see the results of. What year was your primary computer manufactured? Don't vote for old computers that you have laying around. Just your best, newest one.

    2004 for my tower and 2002 for the laptop I believe. As for your pool you have way to many years on it. Really it should go back to 1997 at the best because come on people here on this forum are going to really mostly be using computers in the past 5 years and stuff before 95 can not really even surf the web

    My Nov. 2002 TiBook has been a wonderfully reliable computer since it showed up on my doorstep.

    My vote went on 2005, but it's not Apple. My first Apple is an Intel powered Mac mini circa 2006 :p

    2001 Cube, now upgraded, and 22" ACD. Still my main rig, and likely to remain so for at least another year.

    I'm sorry to say that my "primary computer" is still our 2003 vintage Dell as the iBook is secondary and the iMac is the lving room/kids' computer... Waiting for Merom/Leopard to consider replacing it...

    My iBook is from 2003 (November), but it's maybe, just maybe going to be replaced by a 2006 MacBook in a week or so... :)

    My trusty ol' G5 was born in January 2004. Plenty of life in the old girl yet, of course.

    My 2003 iBook G4 Rev. A is my primary; my 2005 iMac G5 rev. B is my secondary. :)

    I voted my iMac G5, date 2004. It is not my newest Mac but it is the fastest(iBook is newer but still not as fast)

    Mid 2006 (I guess) MacBook in black. I know, I spoil myself…:p

    If you asked a week ago, it would have been a late 2004 PowerBook, or if you asked household (not mine, but most of the others) primary machine it would have been Rev. A iMac G5 (2004).
