I was just gazing lovingly at my Powerbook G4 yesterday when I thought of this: The reason I am so attached to the PB is because it is one of the VERY few products I have ever been completely satisfied with. I think a lot of Apple's reputation comes from this total customer satisfaction, as opposed to many other products (not just computer) where you need to deal with drawbacks, quirks, etc. With most products you feel the need to upgrade after recognizing its flaws, but the Powerbook has exceeded at every task I give it. So, what tech products (other than Macs) have you bought that you've been totally satisfied with? For me, my Shure E500 earphones have been worth every penny I paid for them and more. I have heard some horror stories about the cord disintegrating, but I've owned them for about a year now and could not be more pleased. Also, my Tivoli Audio Model One table radio. Although, Tivoli lately has been kind of awful with their poorly styled and overpriced products. I think the Model One is the only model worth buying, and luckily I got it before they hiked the price. I think, for me, being perfect at a small subset of functions are what appeals to me and ultimately is the most satisfying product. For example, my Powerbook is an ultra-portable work computer that I use to write papers and do research on. The Shures are just earphones, and the Model One has no roles other than to be an AM/FM radio and occasionally a boombox.
