I've owned apple laptops since the PPC days, though I don't have an exact count.
if I was to guess, I think it was 3 iBooks, 2 powerbooks, 1 macbook, 3 or 4 macbook pros (I'm not entirely sure as I don't really keep track)
So around 10 apple laptops over the past 15 years or so.
I'm on my second MBP. My first one, and my first Mac, was bought in 2006 and is still being used as a primary computer for some friends of mine. I now have a 2012 cMBP and it's been great.
Just got my first. In fact, I need to change my siggy.
My very first computer (a bit late to the game at age 66!) was a 2010 13" White MBP.
I now have my second, an early 2011 15" MBP.
This thread made me actually go count it up. The total is 19.
7 PowerBooks, 1 iBook, 1 MacBook, and 10 MacBook Pros.
Number 20 will be ordered later this month, circa Black Friday.
This is my first. I bought an iMac in 2007, which is still running fine, albeit starting to show some signs of slowing - especially compared to this new MacBook. Very happy with the purchase.
This is my second one, my first one wasn't a retina MBP. This one is.
Just got my first on Halloween after 8 months of waiting for the 'big switch'. Very impressed by everything - beautiful screen, nice UI, phenomenal performance....
I feel that based on all the bells and whistles available, I could not have picked a better time to purchase one. And oh yea, I went all out...15"/2.6/16GB/1TB coupled with Time Capsule.
I'm loving it. I miss a few things about windows(I have parallels installed since I still need windows apps), but I'm learning to do things the mac way.
Still trying to get used to living without home/end button.
11 since 2003 . 1 iBook , 1 Powerbook , 3 whitebooks , 2 blackbooks , 1 Air , 3 Pros.... 10 of which are still running .

Happy to say that I use computers less and less so my upgrade cycles are getting longer, the last cycle was nearly 5 years.
2007 Macbook Pro
2012 retina MBP
1. 2004 15" PowerBook G4 (1.33GHz)
2. 2010 17" MacBook Pro (2.66GHz)
3. 2013 15" Retina MacBook Pro (2.6GHz) - in transit!
My first computer for myself was a mid-2009 13" 2.26ghz core2duo with 2gb of RAM that I got for college. It served me well until a few months ago when it decided to not randomly not boot. Darn cheap SATA cables. I just retired it for a new 13" 2.4ghz i5 with 8gb of RAM and a 256gb SSD. Hopefully it will last as long if not longer
Before the 2009 MBP I got through K-12 with a Win95 HP Pavilion and a WinXP Compaq Presario. When the Compaq died in 2010 my parents replaced it with a 17" MBP. Personally I think they should've gotten an iMac, but oh well.
1. 2005 a MBP for graphic design in college i think it had the 7800 gt video card
2. 2009 a MBA as the MBP video card gave out
3. 2012 a cMPB 2012 that i'm using as of right now

So I guess that makes it 12 to far! Yes I have been upgrading every year, but this year I don't think I need to. Every year I've had a reason to upgrade like faster processor, move to quad core, intensely better GPU, Thunderbolt, USB 3.0; the 2013 model for doesn't really offer much except a slight increase in speed which isn't worth it. I don't gain any new functionality (no touchscreen or fingerprint reader); Thunderbolt 2 is great and all, but I don't plan on buyer anymore Thunderbolt devices for the time being. However my old 11" wasn't do so well anymore, so I upgrade that to the new 2013 model and it's great; way better battery life and the increase to 8GB of RAM is very useful. I also will be buying the new Mac Pro, so I need to budget for that!
1 Original MBP
1 Unibody MBP
1 G3 iBook
