Macworld is hosting a “Best Mac Ever” roundup, with one model – the Mac SE/30 – getting the most nods. Andy Ihnatko, however, says the best Macintosh is always “the first one you owned.”
And there’s some truth to that. My iBook G4 is still my main computer, and I’ll probably never (ever) get rid of it.
But the best Mac? It has to be the iMac G4.
You, dear reader, probably saw that one coming, right? My time with Macs has been relatively short, but I remember the iMac G4 taking my breath away when I first saw it, and it was the first Mac to really get me thinking about switching to Apple.
Now I use mine every single day. The entire G4 line has been good to me, and they’re the fastest and newest Macs I’ve owned.
What do you think? What’s the best Mac ever?

Check this out.
Cult of Mac interviews James Wages on his classic Mac SE/30 web-surfing machine and Newton 2100 sync setup. He even uses his Newton keyboard (with an extension) on the SE! You can check out the Flickr collection here.
A lot of people might look at James’s setup and think, “Jesus, what the hell’s wrong with him?” Me? I look at it and think, “My hero.”
