I love my MacBook Pro. Its just a bit over two years old (October 2006 C2D revision) and has done a lot for me. I've taken it to work just about every day for the past couple school years (I work at a school), and has basically helped me earn some kind of living. I've also gotten into photography, and that's where its age is starting to show. It just can't handle RAW files from my D300 too well, and that's after doing an erase and install of Leopard (a new upgrade for me from Tiger). I suppose I had to know this time would come, but I know my MBP isn't a very powerful laptop by today's standards. When did you first realize that your laptop or desktop was showing its age?
