My 2007 17" 2.33 GHz core 2 duo Macbook Pro
Still going strong.
Running Nikon Capture NX2 (latest version) and PS Elements.
Even after dropping it twice.
Still use the firewire 400 and 800 ports.
And the optical drive.
Thought I'd be replacing it by now, but no need.
Thanks Steve, wherever you are.

That's what I always liked about Macs is you paid more but they would last longer. That computer should last you a while and when it starts slowing down, maxing out the RAM or swapping the hard drive for an SSD will keep you going.
My Core Duo (not Core 2 Duo) iMac from 2006 is just starting to show it's age and I'm getting the feeling it's time to move on, but I'm considering buying a 3-5 year old Mac Pro tower as those things were so over powered they'll be fine for another 5 years (and there are people out there who think "well it's a 3 year old computer, time to upgrade" regardless of how it is performing.)
Great post. My 2006 24" iMac still has a beautiful matte screen that is brilliant and beautiful. I plan on installing a 3 TB drive on it and also an SSD where the optical drive is just for the OS and applications. Hopefully this will speed me up and keep it going. For most of what I do it is fine and with bigger photography projects I just have to be patient. It is currently running Lion but I get the beachball a lot so will probably go back to snow leopard.
Does anyone know if the old 24" white iMac does better with Snow Leopard vs Lion?
If I could use it as a monitor I would buy a Mac mini and hook into it but apparently that isn't possible. A new computer would be nice but that beautiful screen is too hard to give up on.
