Alright, this may have been done before, but two or three threads on the same topic can't hurt
So what's your favorite Mac? Or, at least, the list of your favorite Macs in order of favoritism?
1. Power Macintosh 9600 - In my opinion, the most versitile and upgradable Macintosh in existance 2. iMac G5 20" - Perfect design; the greatest mid-ranged Macintosh Apple has produced 3. Quad Core G5 - Does this really need explanation? 4. TAM - WAY ahead of its time; This is Apple in its true form. 4. Performa 6200CD - First computer my Dad bought (not the first used)... brings back memories
Anyways, it's all about opinion. Certainly you would disagree, so feel free to post your list.
I have to go with the iMac g5, its awsome, I love mine. Next I would have to say my old Blue & white g3 I have always wanted a Clamshell iBook too ( hello ebay)
Really I'd have to say whatever Mac I am currently running is my favorite!
(reason for edit: I cant spell)
Macbook 2.1 core duo 1gig 160gb sata iMac g5 w/1 gig 160gig all-in-one and SWEET! iBook G4 IGhz Quicksilver Dual 800's iPod touch "Guys, I think we just lost the platform here" Pete Conrad When in doubt, try SCE to AUX
Wow One of my all time favorites is the B&W G3, I remember when our graphics studio was using all clones, mine was the ugliest beat up powercomputing box. Then the I.T. Guy unvielled the studio's first Smurf. It was sitting on his desk and a crowd of gawkers gathered, staring, in awe.... Then to my joy I learned that it was to replace the oldest crappiest computer, mine! He tried to set it up on the floor but I made him put it on my desk for all to see. Nice.
The powermac G5 may have its limitations (one of the most limited of all powermacs), but it is one powerful son of an apple, which makes it one of my top five. And the Quad takes number...
1. Quad Core G5 PowerMac ("the" most powerful personal computer in the world) 2.Powerbook Pism (the best laptop Apple ever made) 3.The first Mac ever! Cuz I had one and loved it to death! 4.The iMac G4 (Pure genius in design, even more so that the G5 version) 5.Newton (yeah, its was a computer and the first hand held ever)
Sadly, I only own one of the above, and its the slowest one i have!
My 12" PowerBook G4 was the first computer that really got me into... Well, computing. So, of course, it's my current favorite, but for other reasons as well:
1. Portability - Nothing can beat it, other than tiny laptops I wouldn't want to use and Palms/PDAs, which can't compare to its... 2. Power - It packs an amazing amount of power into a small package. I can do pretty much everything I'd want to do on a Mac; even some gaming, thanks to its... 3. Graphics - The nVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 is a great mobility chip. Unfortunately, ATi has taken over the portable market for the moment, so we may not see any great competition products for a while, at least not until nVIDIA's 8000 line. Nevertheless, in terms of graphics technology, nVIDIA is always a step ahead of ATi. 4. Utility - I can use it, like I said before, for pretty much everything I'd want. Its number of known uses continues to grow and never ceases to amaze me. 5. Strength & Longevity - Despite having been dropped a number of times, scratched in multiple places, dented and bent in others, and internally damaged, it continues to meet my computational needs. I haven't noticed any drop in performance whatsoever. In other words, "It takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'." It will be a sad day when Apple drops this beauty from their line...

Current: - "ProBook:" 15.4" MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.33 GHz - Mac Classic II - Old PowerBook
Moved On: - "The Book of Power:" 12.1" PowerBook G4 Aluminum 1.33 GHz - Purple iMac
I'm with Jedi Joker - my 12" pb is my favorite. Granted, its my only mac, but i still love it. Though I've never personally used one, I've got to put the Quad on my list to, just because most other computers don't even have 2 cores, let alone 4. So that makes it:
1) 12" pb 2) Quad
