    Since there is no Apple Store in Serbia and all the places that sell Apple products here are overpriced, my parents bought it for me in Austria

  • Friends parents are loaded, they bought him a nice 30 inch imac (as of 2011, the brand brand new ones) and I asked if i could have his 2008 g5 imac, he said sure and I took it off his hands.

    Going to upgrade it a bit though.


    My main machine(s) are pc's though, I could see myself using a mac for a lot of things, but right now it just isn't feasible, it would be too much work and take such a long time to back everything up and putting everything onto the imac. Maybe one day.

  • I've got my Mac from my dad for my education. I wanted to follow a Graphical education but then I realized it was nothing for me. I'm now going to be a firefighter.. with a Macbook pro xd

  • I got my 1st Mac in college, a PowerMac 7100/80, and since then, I have only had Macs as my computers. Currently, I use an iMac 27" (2.66GHz i5) and a MacBook Pro 15" (late 2008).

    I had been using a Windows 7 based sub-notebook for my final year of university dual booting between Ubuntu and Windows to have access to a bash shell as well as software needed for my studies and research. After finishing my course and embarking on postgraduate studies I got fed up with the less than ideal solution and went for the only operating system which would give me native terminal access as well as the programs I required.

    Necessity, not much else. Annoyingly, my MacBook Air has had more hang-ups and forced restarts than the Dell MZ101 I was using before but it is doing it's job absolutely fine for the main part.

    I got mine from a friend after two hard drive failures. Apple continued to use the same product line for replacements, even though it was known to have a serious flaw. I switched the drive out, uograded the ram and installed Arch Linux. Since then, I've been through two power packs and two batteries. The third party battery I have is a lot better.

    Don't flatter yourselves. Apple do not give a shit about you.

    I'm so glad I didn't actually pay for an overpriced, unreliable 1st gen Macbook. Still the only reason to buy a new Macbook would be unibody and retina... But at that price? Not likely! For cultists only.

  • Ex-GF bought me a 24" iMac when my desktop PC fried and I was left computer-less a few years ago. Since then i've gotten rid of the iMac and switched to a MacBook Pro ♡
