Their iPhone 4 is pretty good, jailbroken of course. Hope a 4G version will come out soon. Could improve in the SQ department though. UI beats any other current smartphone, Apple's only strong point in my eyes.

I used to use apple computers back in elementary school, when Windows wasn't all the rage. The simplicity of the macOS really helps those who have never used a computer before.
So I'm gonna say the older mac desktops. They were actually all in one into a monitor. No tower.

The first Macintosh computer were AIO(all in one) but then Apple got around to releasing tower and desktop formfactor higher&lower end stuff. The two I listed in my post on the first page were towers, but they also had pizzabox (LC I, II, III, etc) desktops both kindasmall and normal size, big AIOs, small AIOs, and mid-towers. Big bulky network servers too, those ran UNIX. :P
Apple started making PDAs in 1993(I have the first model :P)
They had digital cameras, laser and inkjet printers, scanners; they even made a CD player and were dabbling in a phone/fax unit! Also had their own console out, the Pippin.

And all of this other stuff got killed by Steve Jobs when he returned. Then he was praised for the iMac(that he had no real part in designing) and the iPod..

/me goes to add some more stuff to his post.

Cool Apple ][

My Apple IIgs remains my favourite, along with its Transwarp accelerator, SIMM memory expansion, and power-supply-located hdd (40MB).

The iPad interests me the most. With each new piece of tech released by Apple I wait in anticipation for people to finally realize the greed and proprietory business model is ripping them off even if they can make a few cool commercials. The wait continues.

Their Macbook Pro's interest me quite a bit because they look so sexy. If only they weren't priced ridiculously...
