    I received my new Mac! Everyone in the family is so impressed that in a few months, my University bound brother is getting the same model as mine :D

    On my University campus, I noticed that a lot of people use the 13" MacBook Pro (~70% of Macs) and about 90% of Mac users have some other kind of cell phone (mostly BlackBerry as this is the country they invented them in :p).

    Anyways, can't wait for iOS 4.3 which will include free WiFi hotspot for my 6GB Data Plan (on Rogers and also for Telus ATM).

    Just curious so please chime in!

    I have both for sure. I love how everything works together. my life would probably grind to a halt if they stopped working.

    I have had the iPhone 4 since last summer and recently picked up a 2011 base model 13" MBP, my first Mac.
    Do not have a tethering plan nor am I willing to pay for it but an not against jailbreaking for the functionality.

    Indeed. The combo go together seamlessly. I wouldn't want to use any other phone / laptop.

    I sport my iPhone 3GS+13" MBP. It is the best thing I could have. 10hr battery life+3G tethering with MyWi (jailbroken). In fact, I am on a bus ride into the Rocky Mountains from Denver with my MBP and my iPhone. I am posting this from my MBP with my iPhone's data connection. It is the best combination ever.

    People in canada mainly use blackberry? This confirms my belief that a majority of people in Sweden use only ikea in their homes.

    I sure do. Used to have a Nexus One but got my iPhone 4 in August and haven't looked back :D I do love the seamless integration with my MacBook and also my iPad.

    I voted for Mac+iphone but not so much out of choice but concidence.
    If I would by a new smart phone today I would get Android.
    If I wanted to have a tablet I would also get a Honeycomb Android tablet.
    I would still choose the MBP 15" though.

    I get along with my iphone 3GS and the problems I have with it are not worth spending money to switch but I would prefer Android over the iOS. Even jailbroken it is too locked down for my taste and about most apps of the vast app store I could care less. The good stuff can be found here and there.

    You need some additional categories, like:

    mac laptop + dumb phone
    pc laptop + dumb phone

    I can't vote, since my phone is decidedly "not smart"....

    Sorry For Not Covering All The Options!

    Sorry! :eek:

    I thought I had all the options covered without dividing the vote between 10 different options :eek:

    I'll try to edit the poll but I don't think that's possible. I suggest non smart phone users to post there vote in their post.

    (e.g. Mac Laptop + Dumb Phone)
