I've always been a PC user but recently I've ventured over to the Mac side and I'm loving it. Bought a 13" MBP last month for school (2.26GHz, 4gb RAM, 250GB HDD) and I can't get off the darn thing. I still have a PC desktop as I am a gamer so I will still be using Windows though.

Mac users != OS X users

"Mac" is also the platform name. So if you're using Mac OS X on whatever device you're on the Mac platform and thus a "Mac user". If you're using a Mac (the computer) with Windows you're on the PC platform.

Mac is the name of the hardware platform. Macs and PCs run OS X.

Running OS X does not make you a Mac user, it makes you an OS X user.

Agreed, what has always stood apple apart from others is that they produce the hardware and software, with which the software is directly tied into the hardware. The mac platform is both the hardware and software working togeather.

"Mac" is also the name of the entire software platform. Both software and hardware carrying the "Mac" label with the smiling Finder logo symbolizes that the product is compatible with Mac OS. Not such much that it works with the Macintosh computer itself because that obviously depends on what operating system it runs. Be it Mac OS, Windows, Linux etc. Companies nowadays only talk about "PC" and/or "Mac" compatibility, where "PC" is identical to a computer running Windows and "Mac" is identical to a computer running Mac OS X.

When you have a Mac only running Windows the "Mac" label no longer applies to your configuration and you'll have to look into the "PC" software category. Visa versa if you have a DELL running Mac OS X. It's that simple.

Things aren't as black and white anymore now Macs (the computers) run Windows natively and generic PCs are able to run Mac OS X natively.

My primary machine:

MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo with 2gb of RAM (Planning on bumping it to 4, but no real need as of now). Running 10.5.8.

Oh and this is the old Powerbook G4-style MacBook Pro, with the easily dented body and matte screen.

My relic:

Power Mac G3 Blue & White 450 MHz Power PC with 384mb of RAM, dual-booting 9.2 and 10.3.1. It's still a nice computer for writing and internet browsing.

2 GB RAM

I love it. So small, thin, and light. The unibody construction is no marketing gimmick, it's so solid and truly impressive. Can't ask for anything more in a laptop.

Picked up one of the new Mac Mini's, 2.26ghz, 2GB (upgrading to 4GB at the weekend), really happy using it as my download device and hooked up to my 2.8TB Drobo and sharing to pretty much everything around the house. Also using it headless via VNC to my main PC setup to administrate, it runs nice and quiet that I can just leave it on all day and night if needs be.

Sold my aluminium iMac, I still have an old Power Mac AGP G4, 2GB RAM, cant remember HDD, that Ive no idea what to do with.

I'm curious as to who owns Macs on Neowin, I've seen a few recent purchases so I'm wondering.

This is what this thread is for, just post your specs of you mac, the model and the OS it runs.

Just one post, no extra posts and no repeat posts so it's easy to tell just by looking at the number of replies.

I'll start it off obviously. It's a sticky as well.

Model

iMac

Specs

G4 700

512 MB Ram

DVD/CD-RW drive

15" TFT

OS

OS X 10.1.5

next :p ...

What are the specs of your latest rig , Rich Boy ?
