    Sorry if this thread already exists, however I didn't find it.
    Anyway, here post pictures of your favorite Apple product! I'll start off.

    This is my iMac G4, 700MHz 15 inch. It's still a really snappy computer with OS X Tiger and TenFourFox (sorry if the image looks terrible, I used an iPhone 2G). So, what's your favorite? Post pics below.

    I feel that I need to put two here; one is my historic favorite, and one is my current favorite.

    I have a soft spot for small, full-featured laptops, and have for quite a long time. All through college, my 12" PowerBook served me well, taking me through four years of computer science. I have yet to find a laptop that comes close to its supreme balance of size, style, and completeness for its time.

    The 11" MacBook Air comes close, and is my current favorite. For today, it offers a wonderful balance of power, portability, and connectivity, just like my PowerBook did in the mid 2000s. I can't wait to see what the future holds for the world of small, full-featured laptops :)

    I love PowerBooks. I used to have a G4, and I really liked the design.

    I loved this white iPod. It is classic Apple at its finest. It felt like a small Mac that could fit in my pocket at the time (before the iPhone came out). The iPhone then came out, but because it wasn't white at the time, it doesn't win this award. The white products are "classic Steve Apple" and I loved it!

    I've got three, though all of these above are fantastic devices/machines.

    The iPhone 4 had an absolutely iconic design, a screen with a ppi count that was insane for the time (no pixels! seems taken for granted these days, but was just amazing at the time), and was just a joy to use.

    The iPhone 5 for its lightness -- literally still feels like a hallow prototype compared to any other model than the 5S and SE, and just wonderfully "disappeared" into my pocket. Also gorgeous in black, and the design's been headed downhill since -- 5/5S/SE with the lighter gray back, 6&6S with the protruding camera and those awful antenna lines (why not stick with the great glass/plastic "windows" at the top and bottom like the 5/5S/SE had?), and the 7 for the camera and still not-so-hidden antenna lines on the non-black models.

    Finally, the mid-2010 MacBook Pro, the first "i5" MBP. I've treated it well, put an SSD in it, and upped the RAM to 8 gigs, and the thing is still too reliable and speedy to this day for me to replace it. Just a trooper.

    1st gen iPod nano -- I always forget about that guy. Remarkable at the time and a good companion indeed. Mine was recalled for a battery issue years after it was released -- I bit and sent it in, and Apple replaced it for free with a 6th gen (the one with the touchscreen and clip). Made me kind of happy and kind of even more sad at the same time....

    I have a bag from Apple somewhere around the house... never got around to send it back. Maybe I should send it in and see what happens... hahaha

    That happened to my sister, she get 2 replacements for the two gen 1 nanos they had, both of which I think had been refurbs to start with!

    For me the one thing that just worked so well for years for me was my gen 1 iPod mini.

    It served me for quite a while when traveling before getting iPhone (I also had an iPod video but that was not used as much, and even then this mini was put in my car in a permanent fixture (in the boot/trunk) to serve music in my car. It was sold with the car, I imagine it was still going strong for years.

    I absolutely love the design of the iPhone 5. Favorite design aesthetic was always the PowerBook G4 era for me. Especially that 12". No wasted space on that system. The original unibody designs are also very classic.

    I think the new non-TB MacBook Pro will go down as one of my favorites if I can ever get over how huge that touchpad looks. It's proportioned very nicely.

    My favorite that I've ever owned was my Powermac G5. I LOVE the design to this day, both inside and outside. I wish Apple would make a consumer grade version of this thing for today, as I would buy it in a second.

    When I got my first Mac Mini, I let my parents have the G5 for several years, and I just got it back. It's definitely been used and needs some going through (cleaned), but otherwise, it's still the computer I loved for all those years!

    The G4 Cube, I don't think there has ever been a computer I wanted as bad as this one.

    I have the same iPod that I use daily in the car. I love it as well. I've also got one of the 2005 iPod Video's, but the last generation aluminum classic seems to be just that much more refined.

    Mine lives in my work car. It's a great device. I don't have to look down to change a track.
