Judging by posts on these forums, it seems that people are always selling their laptops for newer ones or getting them replaced under warranty. Whatever happened to owning a single computer for at least a couple of years? There are no more bragging rights about "this Powerbook has lasted me for half a decade." It seems like everyone is expecting their Macbook Pros to break down so they can walk into an Apple Store and getting them replaced under warranty. Same with iPods. They're becoming cheap and disposable as a Kodak disposable camera. Every year, they come out with new ones and people keep on buying them and replacing their old ones. Sure, Apple users are usually more attached to their Macs than average PC users, but are we attached to the particular physical product or just to Apple's brand? Are Apple's products so good that we have to upgrade every few months or are they becoming commodities like bread and butter?
