    This might not be the right place to post this (if it isn't, I both apologize and ask that it be moved to the right place to post this), but I'm curious; most of us have or want or use Macs; and we have a particular Mac model that we prefer over all others. So, I'm curious, which Mac model is your preferred Mac model that you consistently buy when it's time for you to buy a Mac? Or, if you buy different Macs, which is the one you currently own? If you own/use multiple, which is your flagship Mac? And, of course, why?

    This is interesting data and I feel like this could be a fun case study in who likes which Macs for which reasons. Cheers!

    I have an iMac that I use as a server and entertainment system, and I have a MBA that I use for everything else. I suppose my MBA is my main system.

    EDIT: The reason is fairly obvious I think. The MBA doesn't make a good server because it's a mobile device, and it also doesn't make a good entertainment system because of its screen size, and it's just less hassle to be able to sit back and watch rather than having to futs with your laptop. All in all, I'm very happy with my setup.

    I had/have 2 Powerbooks, the Pismo and the PB 1.67 which I still use.
    Wanted a new MBP but ended up with a Mini, not my machine though, next one will be the MBP 15" again, most portable system and powerful.

    My parents generously bought my 2010 MBP 13" as a gift after my exams (for college/first laptop). The reasoning was pretty simple: The 15" was too expensive and one you factored in 4GB of memory (wasn't too hot on know ing about user upgradeability back then) in the white MB the price difference was worth it for the identically (iirc) specced MBP with a better chassis.

    Just ordered a rMBP 2.6Ghz / 16GB Ram / 768 GB SSD to replace my mostly base 2.3 /16 / 256 rMBP. We have home a 13" MBA (wife's), 13" MBP (daughter) and a 2.3 Mac Mini with 16GB Ram and dual drives (120GB SSD and 500GB HD) so guess my rMBP is the flagship home.:D

    I've had an iMac/Macbook (Air or Pro depending on year) combo since the days of the 24" Aluminum iMac in 2007.

    So the iMac is my main machine.

    But if I could only get one mac, I would have a 15" Retina Macbook Pro.
