    So just wondering, but whats the oldest Apple product you own thats still a part of your life?

    My main iPod is the original 1Gb iPod nano, and I have the original G4 1.25Ghz mac mini connected to my TV, used by either me or family everyday.

    Update: Wanna post pictures? I'll post mine later.

    Until recently, it was a G4 cube. I had to pack it up and put in my closet because the space it was occupying was where my new printer went.

    What I liked about the G4 cube (other then its good looks ;) ) was the fact that office, and PS ran just as fast in OS9 (a gig of ram) then my current versions on OSX (4 gig of ram). While the apps are older apps, they have much of the same functionality, more speed. Alas, lack of office space has relegated the cube into the closet :(

    1.33GHz PowerBook G4 12", it still works well for such a dated computer and I'll use it while watching TV to browse the web and IM when I don't feel like bringing down the MacBook Air.

    People posting about their faithful and trusty Powerbooks saddens me. I sold my 15" two years ago and I've been regretting it ever since. Every once in a while, I look on eBay and I'm sorely tempted to buy a 12" Powerbook 1.5ghz G4. Overall, one of Apple's best designs. The 13" Macbook "Pro" doesn't quite measure up.

    My three-year-old MBP. I don't need performance while out and about (I have my tower for games etc) so I don't foresee any reason to replace my MBP any time soon either.

    I beat you. :)
    My PowerMac G3 is about 11 years old and still being used everyday (7 days a week for at least a few hours each day) for my own self-employed business. The only problem with it is that the floppy drive doesn't work any more (probably just needs a good clean and re-alignment).

    bondi blue PowerMac G3 tower. With the biggest 15" monitor you've ever seen! Still prefer to use it at work instead of the 'modern' Dell desktops they provide! :D

    That just hurts. I'm going to finally have to put mine down. Very, very sad day it is.:mad: After the Superdrive, fan and everything else comes out (she was an organ donor) maybe a little mac-funeral.

    Still using a MINT 12" 1.5GHz PB & a 5GB gen. 1 ipod, a 20GB gen 2 ipod, 20GB glowing button gen 3 ipod and first gen. lampshade G4 iMac.
