How many Apple products do you own /g/?

Have you regretted any Apple purchases?

I'll start:

>1st gen iPod Nano
>1st gen iPod Touch
>iPhone 4
heavy regret when I updated to iOS 7 and 8
>iPhone 5S
masterrace device. Perfect size and lagless.
>2011 Macbook Pro
Still works like a charm. Especially after Yo,semite clean install.
>iPad Air 2
perfection
>2014 Macbook Pro
My next purchase

I only own a 5 gen 60gb ipod video. 7 years and still going strongs, absolutely no regrets.

Ive also owned various ipod touches and an iphone, which were good enough before android ICS came out and after that I threw them where they belong: the trash

iPad and a rMPB. I had an iPhone once but I didn't like it.
>>
ipod touch 1st generation

don't regret it, played music for me for a while, it still works but I don't use it any more. will probably never buy another apple product.
>>
3GS - worked well for the 4 years I had it and basically got killed off by applel software updates

iPad air 32GB - was a gift, has been mostly useless aside from music, pdf reading and internet browsing. Would not buy otherwise. Has fulfilled the basic tasks I use it for very well, if buying overpriced technology is no object to you

MacBok Pro 15" 2014 - Purchased about a month ago after my chinkpad died. Don't agree with apple business model but a comparative spec windoze laptop ends up either looking like a concrete brick with a 2 hour battery life or suffering from several other significant flaws/being a plastic piece of shit.. I don't like the price or the keyboard on the rMBP, but aside from that, happy so far with the OS and everything else. Go figure.

iPod Classic 120GB. Never regretted it, especially now that I rockboxed it.

IPad 1st gen = almost usless now , but I only paid 200 bones for it when the iPad 2 came out, medium regret lol

Don't have anything Apple at my house, but my gf has a mid 2010 Macbook (non-pro) and it still works great, especially after I put in the 4GB RAM I swapped out of my own (just as old, also well-working) Acer laptop. Great little laptop, OSX is smooth and the touchpad is godly.

Also her iPhone 4S is getting old and is starting to become laggy. Still, I've got to hand it to Apple for having intuitive devices. Won't buy them though, I'm kinda embedded into the MS ecosystem now and I like the Metro interface.

Only Apple shit I own is some iPod nano i got for free
>>
1st gen ipod shuffle
2nd gen ipod shuffle
2nd gen ipod touch
iPhone 4
iPhone 5
1st gen iPad
2nd gen iPad mini
Last gen apple tv

Only regret: not buying 3rd party cables from the start.
And not knowing you get cables replaced in the apple store.
>>
>>45722722

Don't buy other cables man.
I have too many friends that have damaged their devices as a direct result.
Also they tend to wear out faster so you have to get new ones, so you end up paying the same amount in the long run anyway.
Unless you damage your device that is.
>>
I own a single 2009 Macbook Pro which now has a dying hard disk controller. It also has a non-working disk drive and whenever it is on, I can hear what I can only assume to be the fan blaring extremely loudly. It reached this state after only 2 years of use.

Needless to say I cannot trust the quality of Apple's hardware. OS X is nice, but not nice enough to justify using a Macbook of any sort. Thinkpads are far more reliable, even the new ones.
>>
>2010 iPod touch
>2013 rMBP
IPod still works fine aside from the broken home button and my macbook is the best laptop I've ever owned.

>>
I've had several iPods, (Nano 3rd/4th gen, Shuffle, Touch), an iPad Air and currently an iPhone. I also use a Mac at work. I'm not an "Applefag" but I appreciate the design, materials, build quality. Have had all other major mobile OS's (Android, BB10, WP) and honestly there's not much difference between them any more, all are more or less copies of iOS. I'm happy with my Windows home PC but will probably end up sticking with iPhone going forward and may get a iPad Mini at some point since they are dead cheap on T-Mobile right now.

Google and associates make better devices than apple now, and Microsoft and its partners have always made better laptops.

There is currently no reason to buy Apple products.

Who wants my 6th gen iPod nano? I want something that isn't a protected little box of files that I can't fuck with.
>>
>iPod nano, older gen
It played music during my workouts. Eventually replaced it with a smaller and lighter Sansa Clip. Either way I can't complain. Do you even lift bro?

>iPhone 4
I use it as a test device. It's not the master race of phones by any means, but it does what its supposed to do (represent the minimum hardware spec for mobile web development).

>Macbook Air 6,2
Its okay, I wish it had better Linux compatibility so I didn't have to run OS X. The only alternative when I got it was the Lenovo X1 Carbon, and I didn't like the weird keyboard on that. I managed to get it with the employee discount (25%) through a friend, so it was way too good of a deal to pass up.

I had a Powerbook G4 with PPC processor. I bought it like 10 years ago and it's still working. I gave it to my folks to read the news and stuff. It's still in good shape after 10 years.

An older macmini 1,1 which I'm planning to use as a HTPC.

A newer macmini 6,1 from 2012 in excellent shape.

All great investments.

Here I thought it was universally recognised on /g/ that apple products were more expensive for inferior specs...
The only thing apple products have going for them is their unique OS and simpler interface, which in my opinion are both downgrades.

My 6+ cpu kicks any Qualcomm shit in the ass single core wise, the camera is top rated on DXOmark, the battery life is crazy good, the screen is high quality and well calibrated (display mate calls it the best LCD on a phone), the only down point is 1gb of RAM. That's really it.

Funny how you have to add a qualifier to every thing say to justify your purchase. kicks any qualcomm shit "single core" wise? <x> component is top rated by <insert obscure cherry picked website>...

Apple fanboys wouldn't bother me so much if they just admitted they bought the device for status symbol or possibly personal preference for the design, and not feel the need to constantly shill for Apple.

After a month, looking back to my 20 years of windows, it made me realize how much Microsoft must hate their customers for giving to the world such shitty systems.

Lets see

>1st gen ipod touch.
got it as a gift and already had a music player that way better. thing was slower than my PSP for browsing the web, almost unusable. No app store or any interesting software so never used it

>1st gen ipod nano
Another gift. installed some custom firmware, forgot what it was called, just to show kids at school I could play doom on my ipod nano. Never really used beyond that.

>1st gen ipod
Gift. Sold it on Craigslist for $500 unopened.

>15'' rMbp
given to me by my work as a "travel laptop," but I already expensed a laptop I purchased on mine own. Its just sitting under my desk in its box. I was going to at least try it out but it only has mini display ports and didn't feel like ordering a bunch of $30 adaptors just to use something we already sunk $2500 into.

Thanks Apple, you fascists. Also iPhone UI is worthless piece of shit because device has no buttons, so you do everything with touch screen and things are far from obvious. I've spent an hour trying to add a second mail account to mail app, before looking online how to do it. Basically nearly everything on iOS requires googling a solution.

So basically adding music to iphone always involves having a full computer around, unless it's another music service like Spotify? That's retarded. With android device I can plug in mem card and just open the folder.

> Even my fucking grandma learned how to use iOS in like a week.

As far as second mail address goes, the mail app has a screen that lists mail accounts. But you cannot add an account there for some fucking reason, because that would be too logical, you need to add a mail account in the settings app. How is that fucking obvious? Yeah I'm sure your grandma figured that one out like right away.

iPhone is just too tightly restricted.

15" Macbook Pro from 2009. Still on Snow Leopard. I want to keep it alive as long as possible. OS X has gone to shit since then.

It is. A normalfag who never used tech in his life can easily figure out how to use it. He can also learn how to use android, but not that easily.
If you can't learn iOS and don't find it easy and intuitive as shit, then you shouldn't even be on the internet at all.

OS X seriously doesn't feel like it's evolved much from Lion.

>keep it alive as long as possible.
take care of it, keep it cool and it will. God, will it.
I have the 08 macbook the fucker still has its original HDD. I dont know how its still going.
I bet now that I have said that it will crap out in a month.
>>
>>45725169
I look at anything after lion as shit they have fixed. Lion was the buggiest OS. I wish they would stop adding features like social media and crap and just improve the OS's performance.
>>
>>45725199
I have the white 08 macbook and the only thing that's failed is the battery.
I should've stayed on snow leopard though, it runs like a snail on lion.
>>
>>45725226
go back. I havednt left snow leopard on my 08. I like it too much, im too "Comfortable" using it.
>>
>>45725226
Those have the intel graphics. There is your problem.
>>
>>45725305
I actually like the way lion's mission control combined expose and spaces into a unified view, but you're right it's not really worth the awful performance.

>>45725354
I was pissed when I realized my friend's even older macbook with a different video chip ran without any choppiness or stutter.

>1st gen iPod nano 2GB
was alright. 2GB wasn't very much even back then, sold.
>1st gen iPod touch 16GB
pretty nice, relatively high resale value, no complaints, sold.
>7th gen iPod Classic 160GB
last PMP I will need in the foreseeable future. tons of space, decent audio quality, looks nice, battery is strong. Would buy again.

>late 2009 Macbook Pro 13"
slow/10. I didn't pay for it so I'm not complaining, but I wouldn't recommend it.


I also bought a used apple keyboard for my PC, which I am very happy with.

Except for the iPod classic, I think each one of those could have been substituted for something better for less.

I have one, too, OP. Have you experienced any frequent/infrequent speaker pops? Mine does it every now and again and I'm thinking of getting it replaced.

Have not owned a mac in years.

After installing bootcamp back in '06 (I think) and running windows almost exclusively for everything, I eventually just sold all my mac shit and got a cheapo laptop. Still using it, as a matter of fact.

Zero regrets.
>>
>>45722310
I have an iPhone 5c that I'm forced to use for work. It's terrible. I don't want any other Apple products.
>>
>>45725515
>that back wall of powermacs
Very much want.
>>
>>45725481
it was a model from either early 2008 or maybe late 07. whichever shipped with tiger.
Whatever intel chip my particular mid 08 white macbook has is apparently notoriously bad. Even leopard gave me choppy framerates just using expose.
>>
>iPod touch 2g
It was very good and did everything I needed on it. Plus the jail-breaking scene was fun in 2010-2011 (Jesus christ, it's almost been four years). However, it got stolen during the 10th grade.

>iPod touch 4g
Bought this to replace the stolen 2g. Was very impressed, the battery life was all day long and spent many hours playing music, browsing, and jailbreaking things. Screen was also top notch. However, I dropped on the ground and the screen got rekt so I gave it to my dad.

Did I regret my purchases?

No, I didn't. For the time, my iPods performed beautifully and shrekt all of the Androids back then.

Now, however, I have a Note II and will never buy an Apple product again due to the fact that it doesn't need to be jailbroken to do simple shit. I'm thinking of rooting it soon.
>>
Own an iPod 5.5G 30GB with no audio output on headphone jack that I got really cheap off eBay, use with via USB connected to my car stereo to play music.

Owned a couple other iPods before that, Videos, Shuffles, and Nanos. Always thought they were pretty nice devices, although never got into iTunes and the whole Apple ecosystem, just used other software transfer my mp3s to them.

Never owned an iPhone, Macbook, or any other Apple devices.

I'd probably consider a MacBook with high res display if I was ever looking to replace my current laptop, but other than that not really any Apple products I currently have much interest in.
>>
>>45725766
last one with tiger was a mid 07 it would have a 2 or a 2.16 ghz core 2 duo and a GMA 950

Yours would be a Penryn 2.1 C2D and a GMA X3100.

Yours should technically be better.
>>
>>45725838
Technically is the key word here.
From what I remember researching it ended up being a driver issue. Apple just never gave enough of a shit to support it and fix the initial problems with it.

>iMac G3
I remember disliking the mouse and not being able to install Office on it.
>iPod Nano 2nd gen
No regrets, that thing lasted me about six years before I outgrew the 2GB of storage. Loved the wheel and UI.
>iPod Nano unknown gen, the square one
Didn't like the gimmicky design or the UI, but I couldn't fault it apart from that.
>iPod Touch 4th gen
Can't complain, screen cracked the day after the warranty ended.
>iPhone 3GS
Second hand. Used it for about three weeks before I misplaced it. Found it ages later in my bike's under-seat pouch.

After that I switched to Android and haven't looked back.
>>
>>45722310

This seems like a good thread to ask in

What's a good waterproof and submersible case for the iPhone 6 Plus?

Lifeproof hasn't released theirs yet.
>>
I've only owned one. A 1st generation green iPod Mini that I got for Christmas probably 10 years ago.

I loved it, I believe its still somewhere here in the house as well.

I live near water, and I like the submersible ability.

I used to be all android and windows.

When android went "holo" I bought an ipad and and iphone. Last year I bought an MBA.

I love my Apple stuff, its great. Dunno what the big deal is.

Sold them all at some point.

>iPad mini retina (second gen, bought when the newest iPads were released and these were available for cheaper prices. quite a great device.)
>like 4. gen iPod nano, not in any actual use though
>also some small accessories and such

I never regretted any in particular, but I suppose the iPod nanos weren't particularly good purchases ever. Enjoyed using both though.
Also I bought the iPhone a bit late to the game, I wouldn't have had to wait too long to get 5s instead, but no "real" regret here either (my previous phone, a HTC, broke, so I "had" to get a new one).

>>45724116
Knowing about tech is not the same as wanting to fuck around with it, though. I might be pursuing a career in a related field, I might be relatively knowledgeable about "IT", but that doesn't mean I want to customize my phone/tablet OS or anything. OS X, in turn, isn't really particularly locked.

>>45724499
>buying a high end smartphone without looking into it beforehand
You deserve the regret.

Actually though, to be less shill-like, I'll mention some of the accessories I've bought:
>1 USB cable for the iPods and early iPad
>2 chargers for MacBooks
>and also an extra cable for the newer iPhone/iPad

And these were because the chargers and cables keep breaking apart if you don't treat them really gentle.
My number 1 complaint about Apple: their cables. They really should get their shit together and start making ones that last.
>>
>>45726544

I still have my 15" PowerPC PowerbookG4, running Snow Leopard.

It has the 1440x900 screen, and the most powerful Nvidia chip offered at the time. It was a beast.

>tfw last notebook before Apple converted to Intel
>>
>>45726544
>12" PowerBook 1400cs (arent these shit?)
Yeah, it has a Passive matrix display and it only came with a floppy drive so I can't reinstall the damn OS. It's also uses shitty plastics, you can hear that the hinges are about to snap just from opening the damn laptop.

during my early years of poker i balled so hard that i collected enough frequent player points to order a ps3 and an ipod touch 1st generation. i was 18 back then and didmt even know what an ipod touch does. i was pretty excited once i helt it in my hands and played around with it. amd i dodmt evn ppay amything for it either. i mostly usef it as an alarm clock and as a music player. later on i used it to browse 4chan in bed. last year i replaced the battery after 5 years of use. i bought a huawei y300 couple of months ago and dont need the ipod anymore ever since but it served well. i would never pay for an apple product

Never exclusively use products with OSX and iOS until recently, before mavericks and iOS 7 there was a lot lacking IMO...
>>
>>45726648

Ah yeah, you're probably right. It had Tiger originally, I upgraded it to Leopard.

I have it on my nightstand to this day as my iPhone charger, ha

Logicboard was faulty, so apple replaced it with the 2010 model.

>>45726645
typed it on my phone. i hate typing on my phone
>>
>>45726710

Mine went faulty too, put lines all in the screen, but I just got a new board from Apple.

I actually had quite a few issues with that Powerbook G4, but Applecare took care of them
>>
>>45726721
Yeah, it was apparently relatively common with my model, they said it would cost about the same as a brand new one to repair and asked which I'd prefer.
>>
>>45726742
I read this kind of thing happens on occasion. Shits nice.
>>
I regret my 2012 mbpr 15". It got dead pixels within months, brand new out of the factory sealed box. It's a great laptop but when the screen was supposed to be the main selling point and then it craps on you, it's hard not to be a little bitter.
>>
120GB iPod Classic... 6G I think. Plays my AAC and my low quality DVD rips, and can be an ext HDD if I so please. Bought new around 2009 and only regret is that the 160 replaced it at the same price very soon after

iPod nano 4th gen (I think) got it for $40, great little mp3 player for when I was in college. had a little fmtransmitter that plugged into it and was perfect for my car. iTunes is the devil though, now I have a note 3 and Spotify, fuck anything apple.

my boyfriend has a macbook pro he bought for $1800 in 2012 and he hates me cuz I laugh at him every time I see him use it. (basically spent $1800 to go on Facebook, with an aluminum paper weight) and the month after his warranty ran out he starts having problems with the the magnet charger thing, won't turn on, etc. lol apples are for sheep, fucking sheep.

Its genuinely a great service though. Seriously, it isn't too costly and its convenient as hell.

DRM and whatever might exist, but its not like Spotify ever claims to sell you files or music. You get the right to stream and that is it.

4th gen iPod Touch is all I've got. I have awesome memories of it. Before I had a smartphone it was my favorite piece of technology in the world. I looked up stuff on it, watched YouTube videos, listened to music. I live on it. Now it's useless because it can't even use a newer version of iOS anymore, and some apps require a newer version of iOS. I have it jailbroken on the last version it could use.
