    So How long did it take you to buy another one?
    After maybe 2 weeks with my new Mac Pro at the shop, I'm absolutely loving it. So........I just ordered a refurb 24" from apple.ca for home. I can't handle pc's any longer. I still have 2 new laptops that will do what they do for now (till they get replaced with a macbook at some time)

    I'm so stoked, just about as happy as when I got my MP. I ONLY wished it could be a matte screen, but I sure couldn't pass up the 24" Of course I'll max out the ram from OWC.

    Yeah, I'm dying to get an MBP. I picked up a 24" iMac last summer, and now I'm looking for something more portable. I just need to clear up some bills...

    I bought a PowerMac G5 just about 2 years ago now. I was hooked from the start. About two months ago I went out and got a MacBook Pro (from which I am entering this post) and I love it too. Apple makes GREAT products!

    We now have two Macs in the house, 5 iPods, and an iPhone, and I am about to go out and get an Airport Express base station.

    I am also itching to upgrade from my PowerMac G5 to the latest Mac Pro, but I haven't quite got all the money together for that yet. I am about half way there. Soon, soon...
    My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
    My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
    My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3

    yay. I can/'t wait 4 days. I'm kind of excited to see how this single 2.4 and 1 gig/ram compares to dual 2.6ers and a decent chunk of ram.

    I bought my first Mac last July, one week after I bought an iPhone. I was so impressed with the quality of the iPhone that I had to have a MBP to use with the phone.

    Last March, I wanted another Mac. Had almost made up my mind to get a second MBP until I saw the iMac. Got the 20" and have been loving it. April came and I had to have another Mac so I bought a Blackbook.

    Now I want another one. I've been going back and forth between a MBA or a 24" iMac. I'll probably go for the 24" iMac.

    Who knows what will happen this summer when and if new laptops are released. Yes, I use all three of my Macs and I frequently have the iMac and BlackBook going at the same time.

    Specs:
    2008 8-core mac pro. 4GB RAM 1.5TB storage. Dual LCDs (one IPS monitor for the colour).
    The money that could be used to buy a redundant and inferior piece of equipment could be used to upgrade my machine with either more memory, monitors, audio/visual equipment, or a couple of tanks of ink for my printer.

    Bought a 24" 2.4GHz 750 gigHD Aluminum iMac just before Christmas last year along with two 80 gig iPod Classics.

    I just sold off some home theater equipment I wasn't using and now have more than $6k to play with . Won a 30" ACD on eBay for $1225 (still waiting for it to arrive). Still trying to decide: quad or octo-core Mac Pro, but I should be ordering that within the next couple of weeks.

    We have a Dell in another room of the house that gets light use, so I'm thinking about putting a mini in there for surfing & email.

    Depends how long it takes me to convince my wife I need a new one and that she can have my old MBP (old as in 1yr old, so going to take a while).

    I bought 4 Macs in a year and four months. I wasn't satisfied with the MB so upgraded to the iMac and then the MP. Upgraded to the new MP because it was actually cheaper then just upgrading the video card in the older one.

    2 Macs though is too many.

    I find it hard to understand why people feel the need for constantly new stuff... it's like they're compensating for something else.

    My journey to Apple certainly started with the iPOD (I got a 3rd gen 20GB iPOD in 2003). In the same year I got my last Windows laptop ever and in 2004 I build my last windows desktop (which I still have).

    In early 2006, I started using my Wife's G3 and enjoyed it, but it has a few issues and would sometimes go to sleep and not wake up for days (lol but true). So I got her a new MacBook in September 2006 and was about to renew my own laptop anyway, so got myself a MacBook in October 2006.

    I am very happy, but it we ever decided to renew the desktop, I'd get a Mac Pro, but for now, we use the screen with our MacBooks and the PC has not been switched on for about 2 years.

    I replaced my 3G iPOD a few months ago with a classic, because the HDD started skipping.

    I kept switching due to $$ issues. I bought the MB because I wasn't willing to pay $60 a month just for Internet service. I walked a block to Panara and used their free Internet for an hour a day.
    I realized I couldn't edit photos on that 13.3 LCD so I swapped for the iMac. Although I hated the all-in-one design, I couldn't afford the Mac Pro. When I could, I made the plundge. Because I keep my machines in perfect shape, I never took much of a hit.

    Now I am extremely satisfied and I'll keep this bad boy till it's grave. I may have a new computer by then, I hope this lasts 8 years plus, but it should make an excellent folding machine.
