I'm interested to know when members of the Macrumors community first owned Apple products. Please participate in the above poll. Note I have specified hardware product. This is because I want to exclude software or internet products that can be used by people who don't have Apple hardware (e.g. iTunes, mobileme). I'd also like you to restrict this to products owned by you (or your partner/parent/other household member if you shared the device) rather than products owned by your employer or school/university. You might also be interested in my other related polls: If you could only have one Apple product, which one would it be? What was the first Apple product you owned? UPDATE: A few initial comments pertain to what constitutes ownership, particularly whilst growing up. So I decided to update this with my thoughts. I would say its fair to count a device bought by your parents for the household as a device you have owned, provided you made significant use of it and felt some degree of possessiveness over it (e.g. if you had been given just as much right to use it as your siblings you would speak of the device as "my device" or "our device"). By contrast, I would say you should not count a device that was primarily your sibling or parents device that you occasionally got to play with. Those are my thoughts, but its difficult to be explicit and cover all bases so you may need to make your own judgement call.
