    I don't drink that Kool-Aid, and this is someone who used the first 512K Mac and assorted successors until Windows 3.1. I have an iPod 30GB Classic 5th generation from 2006, but I stopped using it with the advent of 32GB SD cards. I also technically own an iPad 3, but I really bought it for my wife, and I rarely use it.

    In a nutshell, while Apple products are nice and well-designed, they are wildly overpriced and force one to live in a garden with extremely high walls. If I were a one-trick pony who needed a Mac for a specific purpose, then maybe, but I'm not, and I vastly prefer the flexibility offered by PCs and Android.

    Even my most recent (sole) ownership of an Apple product has had unfortunate and long lasting consequences -- when I first got the iPod I made the stupid mistake of ripping my CD collection without thinking about it -- and without changing the default from m4a to mp3 (assuming that option did exist on iTunes in 2006). Every now and then, that still causes problems outside of iTunes (which I still use, but with eyes wide open).

    Agreed, I was in the market for a laptop years ago and the Mac was nearly triple the price of a higher spec Windows laptop. Its not worth it no matter what some people say for me to settle for less for thousands more.

    And yes, we are talking a higher end laptop here.

    I have a MacBook Pro that I have jettisoned in favor of a Sony Vaio - I generally get about 2 years out of a laptop, and got about 2 years out of the Mac. My efforts to migrate to OSX failed miserably given the fact that the Mac versions of Windows business and technical software generally suck.

    Also have gone through 3 iPod Shuffles, which is still the best tiny mp3 player available IMO. But most of the time, to listen to podcasts, I now use the GN2 with a Bluetooth stereo headset - just a lot more convenient.

    I'm not an Apple hater, and they make some nice stuff, but overall their products don't meet my needs very well. And it tends to cost a lot more than it should.

    I have an ipad 2 but it's really just for my son. He digs Netflix and the educational apps and games.

    Not a note 2 owner (yet) but i like a lot of apple products, they are great.

    They make the best PC's (not even up for debate as a long time windows user and computer builder), the Apple TV in its stock state sucks, but once you jailbreak it and put XBMC on it is awesome, the ipod touch is great to get the apps and games made for ios without signing a contract and getting an inferior phone that's already behind the day is released, and with tablets, the Nexus tablets are much better tablets BUT apps suck on tablets so the ipod offers a better experience because you have a much larger and better app selection. Airport extreme is A GREAT router. Had one for a few months and no dropped connections so far....

    The phone is the only thing apple that just sucks. I tried it, traded it off for a better phone

    My previous phone was a 4S. That went to my daughter, and each kid has an iPod Touch. My computer dual boots Windows 8 & OSX Mountain Lion (Hackintosh).

    Not a Note 2 owner till Sams gets more stock this week. :-)

    Currently I'm using an iPhone 5 16gb and my wife uses an iPhone 5 as well. We have an iPhone 4 and 4s as spares. I have an iPad 4 that my wife bought me for Christmas. I love it. I had the original moto droid and droid x until gingerbread ruined it. Switched to iPhone 4 and loved iOS for a while but it's grown stale while android keeps getting better and better. I'm ready to get back to android and can't wait to get a note 2 this week.

    Organic is the only safe way to eat an apple. Really.

    I have an iPad 1 with the highest level of iOS 5 and it frequently force closes. I find entering text into web pages to be nearly impossible at times because the cursor freezes. Nice for the big screen but navigation using the Home button and double click to get to the running apps bar is clunky compared to Android.

    Will either get the Samsung Note 8 or coming next version of the Note 10 for my future tablet needs.

    No Apple products here. All the music and whatnot is played via my GN2 and I use my Note 10.1 for my tablet. I think the only reason I would ever buy an Apple product is gettng an iMac for photo and video editing, but even then I wouldn't want to pay $1700+ for it. So I'm good being non-Apple.

    Is it really $1700 for that Mac? I built a top of the line gaming rig which is now running Windows 8 for only a couple hundred more. That includes an Intel i7 3930K which was over $600 a year ago. That Apple better have a huge SSD in it to make the cost worth it. I'm running a 500 GB HD due to the cost but do have a 120 GB SSD used for caching.

    11 inch mac book air, great build quality and can rely on it when bringing it to school and back, also and ipod touch that I bought the same day I bought my first android phone. That being said, I very rarely use the ipod touch (mostly because I subscribed to Spotify and don't have hard music files anymore). Also mostly only use the air in/for school.
    (first post here go easy)

    I own an ipad 3. I love it. Dont use it as much as my note 2 nowdays but the screen quality on the ipad is second to none. I love my note 2 and my ipad. Im not anti apple I just wish they would move with the times. If they did move with the times android would have something to worry about

    iPad3: for private pilot cockpit ops (screen clarity is superb especially during animation; i don't trust android enough to be in the cockpit especially to track an instrument approach), boating navigation, and general entertainment at home.

    MacBook Pro 15": I've had the same one for six years and it's still my daily computer, even though my company has issued three different PCs to me during this time. IT is bewildered that my PCs come back with the plastic still on the sides. My mbp still has a lot of juice to crank through mega-sized spreadsheets without problems.

    MacBook 11": I use this purely solid state computer for a number of very portable things like high-altitude applications (because hard drives fail around 11,000 feet above sea level) such as mountaineering/expeditions. This easily links with a satphone for data.

    and in the household: (2) iPods, (3) iPhone 5, (1) iPhone 4, AirPort Extreme for streaming music to different zones in our house (with a vintage Phase Linear 700 Series II amplifier powering everything)

    My note2 is use for everything mobile. love my note2, but have to say, it is the only device i have to reboot everyday as a preventive measure.
