First ever owned: Mac Performa 6200CD PowerPC
Though it is on a list of the worst Macs ever made I still have it and it still works. Someone also gave me an identical one that served me well up to Mac OS 9.1 and it still boots right up too. Oh, and I still have one functioning Apple Multiscan 15" Display that came with it, plus the peripherals. Guess Apple really built those old beige boxes to last!

The first ever Mac I ever owned was a MacBook (just a regular MacBook, not a MacBook Pro), which was a 2008 model, which I got as a present on Christmas Day of 2008. It came preinstalled with Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard and iLife '08.
I've since upgraded to iLife '09 a few days before the release of Snow Leopard, and upgraded to Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard a little less than a year after I got my MacBook.

This topic is self explanatory. What was your first Mac you ever used. Whether it be in a shop, someone elses house, in your own home, which ever place it was, all the Mac users out there had a first.
My first Mac was, if I remember correctly, an iMac G3 in Telstra Tower. I was very confused about the round hockey puck mouse (being a Windows fan and used to PC mouses) I wasn't used to it and didn't use it very much as I found it strange to use. Also I wasn't use to the user interface being Mac OS 9 (or 8, not sure). Being used to Windows 98, it can be quite a big step and I wasn't at the time prepared to take it. Of course that was a long time ago when I was little and I've changed a lot since then. Currently, I use an iMac G3 regularly for e-mail, iTunes, internet and classic games and now with a hockey puck mouse.
Strange how at one stage you can think, "What is this? This looks strange." and then a few years later you can have one sitting on your desk and you using it regularly.
The Apple ][+, with 64k, a green screen monitor, and 80 column card.
The first "mac" was a Mac Classic...

Since Win7 came out, I actually abandoned the hackintosh desktop. I use Win7 exclusively on my desktop PC and been pretty happy with it. I don't miss my hackintosh one bit. On the other hand, I still haven't found an equivalent PC laptop that is as good as the Macbook Pro. The main features I care about is not power or price, but features that are just unique to the Mac. Things like multi-touch trackpad, which I haven't seen one other PC laptop that does multi-touch as well as Apple did. Another is the back lit keyboard, not many PC laptop has this feature. And then there's the magnetic power adapter, it really saved my MBP from damages many times. The only drawback of the MBP is that it gets quite hot during intense use, but it doesn't happen that often.

It was 1993. I was in fourth grade, and got addicted to Oregon Trails at my school.

The first Apple I used was the Classic with black and white screen. The first I bought was the LC 475, the pizza one . Then I bought the G3 W/Blue and then the G4 MDD (Mirror Drive Doors) I love it , overclocked it and even made from the base of the metal rad, a plate to support watercooling.
