    Imagine your total quantity and total outlay on all your computing and electronic goods (computer, tablet, phone, music player etc) would be the same as if you had all Apple products, but in this hypothetical reality only one of those items is allowed to be from Apple. Which Apple product would you have?

    I don't know why you'd find yourself in this disagreeable position. Just run with it!

    UPDATE: Note Mac means any computer in the Mac lineup. You choose.

    UPDATE: Just a note to consider not only what Apple device you most value, but also the wider implications of your choices. For example, choose Mac and you would need to live with Android/Windows/RIM/whatever-else phones and tablets. Choose an idevice and you'd need to live with Windows/Linux computer.

    UPDATE (08 Oct): Hackintoshes just came up in a comment. You're not allowed to cheat by running a Hackintosh to get the benefit of the Mac OS without picking Mac.

    You need a "Mac" with an "i" in front of it, to get my vote. :(

    By Mac, I mean any computer in the Mac lineup (Macbook Pro/Air, Mac Pros, Mac Minis, iMacs)

    Have to say iPhone. But I can't imagine not having a MacBook.

    Probably a 15" MBP. That's what I have right now and I wouldn't want anything else.

    Probably an iPad. I can definitely live with a Windows computer.

    I chose iPhone, because I need a Windows computer for school anyway. So I could drop the Mac and use a Windows PC to get by, and use an iPhone.

    Or I could use only a Mac, and use another phone. Whatever. But I would need a Windows PC anyway, so I might as well go with the first option.

    My initial reaction was a maxed out 13" MBAir, but I think that's desire speaking (I don't have one). Having grown up with PCs (MS-DOS 3.1 on), I know I could survive on that if necessary, but I use my iPhone in so many different ways every day that I think I'd have to go with that. Android is fine and dandy, but the universe of iOS and the deep integration with the hardware is fantastic.

    I can understand why nobody picked iPod, why get an iPod when you can get an iPhone.

    Probably the Mac Air. The highest spec available.

    Thanks. This is really unbelievable. How can Steve Jobs be dead? To me, he seemed more of an idea than an actual person.

    I said iPhone, as I don't ever wanna go back to my old menu-oriented Nokia -- or anything else that's similarly clunky.

    iPhone. So tough that you didn't two products we could have. I'd much prefer that - so I can have iPhone and Mac Pro!

    But all my music and communication and organisation is handled through iPhone, and I'd be pretty lost without it. One little device is very useful.

    The iPhone. I don't want the other ones regardless of limit.

    Definitely a MacBook Pro. I would rather have a Mac than a Windows PC than have a Andriod instead of an iPhone...:D

    I'll take the 12-Core Mac Pro with every upgrade possible in it.
