    For me it's....

    MacBook Pro 15" retina - very satisfied I would say about 95%. Easily the best laptop I've owned and my first Mac.

    iPad Air 2 - very satisfied. I do wish it could do more. I would say about 90%.

    Apple TV 4 - happy with it but wish it had more apps. About 85%.

    iPhone 6 Plus - the least satisfied out of all my Apple products I've owned and currently own. I guess I'm always comparing it to android phones and how limited it is and how it needs to catch up. I would say about 75%.

    Extremely satisfied. Never had a problem. Everything nicely integrated. MacBook Pro, iPads, iPhones. AirPort Extreme, Apple TV. Everything just simply works.

    I currently have an iPhone 6 and an iPad mini 4. I'm very happy with both. My only issues come from the limitations of iOS, but I've been using iOS devices for years and therefore was well aware of its flaws and strengths before I bought either of my current devices.

    I don't know if I can tie a number to my level of satisfaction, but I would/have recommend these products to others.

    iPhone 5, 64GB - first iPhone purchased new. Waited for this phone, love it, still love it - very satisfied.

    2001 PowerMac G4 Quicksilver, Dual 1.8Ghz with 1.5GB ram, Bluetooth 2, USB 2 and SATA drives (also, six displays) - tempermental Mac, but when working it's an awesome machine. The Quicksilvers were the best looking PowerMacs, IMO.

    2003 17" PowerBook G4, 1.0Ghz, 2GB ram. The very first laptop Mac that actually made me want an Apple Mac. I'm typing this message on it. Still a beautiful, dependable and useful Mac.

    2006 17" MacBook Pro, 2.18Ghz, 2GB ram - My very first Intel laptop and I love this one too. Snow Leopard (the max it can run) is the polished version of Leopard 10.5.8.

    2006 iMac G5, 2GB ram - VERY nice iMac with a G5 processor. I don't really care for iMacs, but this is a nice Mac.

    iPhone 6s+, 128GB - except for the fugly antenna lines, iOS 9.x and the fugly camera bump I'm happy with this phone.

    iPad Air 2, 16GB - my first iPad and I'm very happy with it.

    2012 MacBook Air: It's barely slowed down and I've had it for four years. The only thing I want is a better screen but otherwise super satisfied.

    Ipad Air 2: Very satisfied other than I wish iOS was a little more optimized for the larger screen.

    Iphone 6S Plus: Very satisfied as well, though I wish they would've optimized the design a little better (smaller bezels for one, reachability bringing things to one side instead of just the bottom). Other people have said it's like they took an iPhone 6(s) and blew it up.

    I currently own

    iPad Pro 12.9" - very satisfied, it's a great device for multitasking, webrowsing playing games and multimedia consumption.

    iPhone 6 Plus - a great phone that's been very reliable. No problems whatsoever!

    MacBook Pro 2011 - has been my first MacBook and I love it! More reliable and has stood the test of time better than any Windows laptop.

    iMac late 2012 - a great desktop that has been very reliable and got me through Univeristy, editing video projects and so on.

    Overall I'm a very happy Apple customer, I think Apple devices are the best out there in terms of reliability and being great devices. When it comes to customer service Apple are number one!

    I own just about one of everything Apple currently offers with the exception of the Apple TV. The great thing about Apple products is they last for a long time and to me, their hardware standards is exceptional. Also, Apple products retain a higher resale value.

    Got first iphone few weeks back after swapping from android

    Got 6s plus, very happy despite ios known flaws but I knew other these before swapping.

    Have 2009 macbook, which is my work machine and since adding 8GB ram is a flyer and better than the windows 10 machine it replaced.

    Have a 2007 imac, my home machine and adding 4GB ram has made it great.
    Just shame at low usb ports and no card reader.

    My first ever mac the ibook G4 which I only got not long before joining here.
    not seeing any use now though

    My macs- 100%
    Phone-100%

    I came from the feature rich android world--had a an s6 and lg g4 that let me down which is why I switched. I didn't lose many features and gained reliability. Simply put, the iPhone just works. I also picked up airdrop between my devices which I like.

    I currently have a 5K iMac, Apple TV (New), Apple Watch Sport, iPad Air 2, and an iPhone 6 Plus. All of them I am very satisfied with. I will likely upgrade the iPhone in the fall though and I expect that the iMac will be the last computer I purchase for a very long time.

    Very happy with everything I have bought from Apple. The iPad Pro units were a big treat this year!

    Looking forward to the 7 and new OS.

    I own a 13" 2015 MacBook Pro Retina since 8 months now. It's super fast, smooth, reliable, beautiful screen and has an amazing battery life. It's my first Mac and I couldn't be happier with it.

    Very happy with mine. I use my iPhone SE, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 4 daily. Rarely use my MacBook Pro anymore and I don't even know where my Apple TV is. I have a Chromecast now that I use pretty regularly.

    - 2012 Non Retina Pro - very happy - Best laptop Apple has and will ever make in my opinion. Software wise... wish 10.11 was more stable this far into the process.
    - iPhone 5 - Fairly happy, slightly slow at times, but enjoying iOS 10 on it. Battery stinks (thats not new though)/
    - iPad 2 - Growing unhappy, its ageing, though a clean install last weekend has made it a lot more tolerable. Annoyed more with Apple's lack of focus on iPads in iOS in general with iPads.

    My 2011 MacBook Pro has a broken keyboard and there's a faint line going across the bottom of the screen, and the 2010 I'm using right now has the discrete GPU problem, So I'm not very happy with either of them. I admit that if I had some decent cash to throw on a good monitor that the 2011 wouldn't be all that bad (it's hooked up to a subpar Dell in the living room at the moment), was lucky that the 2010 was sent to spend the rest of its life in a closet. The performance of both aren't bad otherwise, I thought the 2011 was actually worse in the beginning because I had so many issues in OS X Lion that ML fixed. Mavericks was even better, Yosemite was bad because of the Helvetica Neue font that looked terrible, but San Francisco has been great on El Capitan. Really, really, really am looking forward to the new MacBook Pros.

    iPad Mini, 1st gen - The App Store constantly never loads anymore, I sometimes notice ghosting, and performance in general is very hit and miss. It's still perfectly fine to type on, read ebooks, watch video, and play games on. But I don't think I'm replacing it with another one. At the beginning with iOS 6 it was great though and I've put lots and lots of miles on it.

    iPod Touch, 5th gen - Just got done listening to some podcasts on it. It's using the same old tech as the iPad Mini, but I only use it for audio so it really doesn't matter. I'm still pretty happy with it.

    iPhone 6S Plus - Good - I like the 3D Touch features - I use peek and pop a lot, and I have all my keys in Nintype to do different things when you force touch them, my favorite being copy and paste which I have set to the C and V keys. The camera is great, and Night Shift has been really nice!

    I had two Android phones between 2012-2013. Yeah, there is a lot more they do in comparison to iOS. What left a bad taste in my mouth was a messed up Google Play update that caused the phone to lockup to the point that I couldn't unlock it. Google probably handles updates a lot better these days, but I'm just not that interested anymore. The Lumia 520 I had afterwards was more enjoyable and was the last time I actually got excited over a piece of tech, but at the end of the day I just got another iPhone.

    I have a 2012 Mac Mini, but like the earlier ones, it has slowed a lot since it was new. I love my iPad Air 2, but iOS is so limited I'm frequently frustrated by what it can't do (no usable file system, for example). I'm pretty much satisfied with my iPhone 6s+ and love its speed and overall elegance of operation. But even will all three I still feel the need to have a Windows machine handy, and I do.

    Without getting into a million details, I used to be 95% satisfied with Apple products back in the 2005-2010 time frame.

    These days it's more like 70%

    Stuff still works but I sometimes feel like I should start a daily Tumblr detailing the ways technology just doesn't work right anymore.

    Heavily invested in Apple, I've got current models of each size Laptop, iPad, iPhone and other hardware. Most of it's OK, but not up to the standard Apple once maintained.

    Cruising on past successes and positioned to focus on profit taking have degraded the Apple experience. "It Just Works" used to be true, but no longer is. Resting on their laurels has cost them loyal customers, yet too big to fail has allowed them to look the other way.

    Apple's not in danger, but they've become a typical consumer electronics company that simply has a big name.

    I love my iMac, its a great computer, though I'm running windows on it right now :O

    I have the iPhone SE and that too is a great product (though I'm NOT running windows on that ;) )

    Overall, I'm fairly happy with the hardware, though I do question their direction they're taking in both software and hardware. I suspect the iMac may very well be my last Mac, given the price and how Apple's competitors have already leap frogged them in design, performance and price.

    I'm ok with my Apple products. Never been upgrading for while long time, and that's a first.. (at least not until these devices evenually wear out)... still on Yosemite.

    iPad Air 2.. although not much use.. Apple TV 3 (heavy usage), and Mac mini 2012. (its getting old) but still serves as a good media server

    It just works... after 100 person hours of work. Doesn't matter if it's a new setup or upgrade, I left Microsoft Windows because of that. And Siri is becoming useless, I've had to disable it more than once. I admit that I'm a tough customer, but Apple keeps creating problems, fixing them and then creating other problems, not so much with OSX/macOS but iOS since the iPad and iOS7 has been short-sighted mistakes that customers have to fix.
