which mac did you first get when you switched from pc??
i switched this year, to an 17in iMac
Bought a PowerMac 7100/80 AV back in 1995, though I fell in love with Macs somewhere around '92-'93. System 7 was so much cooler than Windows 3.1.
...and before the windoze trolls say something about me needing to check out more recent versions of windows because it's so much better now...i have used windows machines in some capacity or another (work/home office) all along as well, i just prefer macs, especially since OS X.
counting my two laptops from work, i currently have two OS X machines and four XP Pro machines and am currently or have in the past been an admin on servers running the following OS's: WinNT, Win2K Advanced Server, Win 2003 Server, Red Hat Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS 9. (Though I've played around quite a bit with my OS X system, I haven't had a chance to play with a true OS X Server box yet).
G3 Pismo Powerbook...woot!
picked up a mini earlier this year. (along w/ a 20" ACD)
A Performa 630CD in '94. Should have gotten the powerpc but I knew jack about computers then.
Bought a 15" Powerbook earlier this year.
15" Powerbook bought in november
15" Powerbook bought when the Aluminum model was first released in 2003.
12" PB purchased in october '04
first computer was a apple. had a few pc's but they sucked and always broke.

I am an apple OG
Bought a mini the day they were announced, sold my pc to a coworker the same day, never looked back
A Powerbook G3 I got about a month ago from Inamorata
same here but it was still an awesome machine
Had nothing but Windows PC's up until last year. Crashes, spyware, viruses, etc... led to a fit of anger, a format of my hard drive and an installation of Debian Linux. After a few months of messing with Linux on my PC machine, I decided to go with a Unix based Mac when time came to buy a laptop (12" iBook).
I'm never looking back. Fuck windows, fuck MS and fuck PC's.
Apple IIe here.
15" PB bought a month ago.
got the higher end mac mini for free, and was thinking about keeping it, but ended up selling it for 550. glad i did
