    For me, I had a PowerBook G4... the TiBook, actually. Then I upgraded to an AlBook. I loved macs so much then, I got a G4 iMac. Then to the last PowerBook G4... then when G5 came out, my iMac got the switch... then when the Intel Core Duo iMacs came out, I wasn't convinced, and waited for my current Alu iMac. But I got the second macBook Pro (the 2.33GHz variant) which then upgraded to 2.6GHz SR, and then 2.6GHz Penryn now. What was your story?

    My first Mac was a Mac Mini. After 20+ years as a PC person, the Mac Mini was like a breath of mountain air ... :cool:

    PPC 601 I got back in '94 as a high school graduation present. 60 MhZ, 250 MB hard drive, 14.4 modem, System 7. Those were the days when computers still had some element of mystique for me, instead of the common household appliance like the microwave.

    The first mac I ever used was my Dad's Mac plus from 1986 to 199(4-5?). It became the 'kids computer' when my Dad got a Centris 610. Eventually I bought my own mac, a Performa 6320 CD, when I needed a colour screen for all my 'university presentations' ;)

    First Mac? I think it was called simply the "512K mac". It had a floppy disk drive but no hard drive. The macs with the HDs cam later or as dealer modiifications. I've actually stil got a 512K Mac.

    I worked for a company were we were seriously thinking about buying an Apple "liza". This was the short lived machine that came out just before the Mac. The Liza was all around a better computer except for the price. It was about (?) 1982 and Apple wanted $10,000 for the Liza and that was back when $10K was alot of money that would buy you a pretyy nice car.

    My dad bought the first Mac sold in our sales region, so that was the first Mac I used. The first Mac that was "mine" (but not paid for by me) was a Quadra 630. The first Mac I paid for was the Bondi Blue iMac.

    I had a Macintosh LC with Personal Laserwriter LS that I got in college in 1990.
    But prior to that I had an Apple ][e complete with duo 5.25" floppy drives. Circa 1984.

    My first Mac was a 2.0 C2D Black MacBook bought from the Fifth Ave Apple store... that was a very good day. It's still around, but I sold it to my Dad and bought a 15" 2.4 MBP (because the GMA 950 was getting on my nerves). Recently I sold that and bought a quad 2.8 Mac Pro (because I got in to HD video... MBP can't touch the MP). My most recent Mac is a 12" 1.5 PBG4 to go along with my MP... I'm surprised how snappy the little thing still is.

    1. PowerMac G4 Cube: bought early 2001, and is still used connected to an eyetv recording stuff.

    2. 12" PowerBook G4 867 mhz: bought mid 2003, still used by my father.

    3. 15" PowerBook G4 1,67 ghz lo-rez: bought 04/2005 because the 12" screen was getting difficult for gfx design.

    4. 15" PowerBook G4 1,67 ghz lo-rez: bought 08/2005 because the first 15" pb was stolen 3 months after purchase. :(
    Is still in almost daily use and does its job with leopard & CS3.

    5. 24" iMac 2,8 ghz: bought 08/2007, because well, needed more power. :) Connected to my 21" Eizo lcd it's a great design machine.
