I personally like the design of early CRT-based iMacs and colourful old iPods nano.

But it's only design. I've never had anything by Apple and I'm not planning to buy anything from them.

BTW iPods have an unacceptable feature - they don't allow uploading music with universal mass storage mode. iPhones don't allow me to install Android. Only Macbook can be acceptable, because it has quite low failure rate and works long on battery.

My all time favorite apple product which also happened to be my 1st was the iPod Mini which I purchased way back in '04 when it first came out.

Not an Apple product proper, I think the AeroDream One by Jarre Technology deserves a mention here.



It's a dock for Ipods/Iphones/Ipads, it costs a mere 400,000 euros and is only 10,000 watts strong (we're not talking of PMPO watts here, but real ones).

The integrated subwoofer alone is 4,000 watts. The mediums are powered by two amplifiers of 1,600 watts and the higher frequencies have two amplifiers of 1,400 watts.

http://www.jarre.com/aerodream-one-i...E-dock-speaker

Gallery there, and if you want to order one (and have 400k to put in a dock).

for me it's the iPod franchise... it was thanks to them that Apple's living a second successful life after all

until it got stolen I owned an iPod classic 120GB, now I've got the 80GB new iPod touch and I also like it very much ^_^ I use it to watch tv shows and play games appart from listening to music, the screen is absolutely fantastic, I just can't understand how can they put so many pixels in such a small screen, it's extremly sharp!



Apart from this, I'm not really a fan of Apple, I still use a windows-powered laptop, I use an old nokia and I don't really see the purpose in ipads

Apple computer is fine but just a little complicated to fix when problems come up. Ipads, as I said in my last post, is just an overisze iphone without the phone feature, until it can be used as a 'real' computer I'd rather keep my pc notebook.

I would say the iPad 2 is very hand and convenient for me. Its much lighter than a laptop and easier to use than a netbook. The only thing I regret is that I got the one without 3G and when there is no wifi it is almost useless as most of the apps I have need internet and I use it for mail.

So don't bother getting the only wifi version if you are going to use it out of your house and on the go. save up a little more and get the 3G+wifi.

Macbooks would look nice if they were painted in style of Mondrian or other '5 minutes in Paint' and had no bright logo.

Mondrian and similar pictures make really no sense as a standalone picture in a gallery, but can be a good pattern for design.

iPod. All other products have cheaper, more capable alternatives.

It really depends. Back in 2006 or whatever, the iPod Nano was absolutely massive and I'd carry it anywhere - small, thin, with click wheel. But nowadays the iPhone has just changed everything... Not the best, but definitely the coolest IMO. So yeah, it is my current favourite.

PS: Still haven't got an iPad, but I do love it. And I miss the old iMac G3... Macbooks are great as well.

Mine would be the pre-G3 Power Macs. They had character.
