Tom Wai-Shek, 55, lives in New York.
Cost: $1,700

Tom Wai-Shek: I've been raised on Apple computers, and I used an Apple laptop at work. When I left my art director position at an ad agency, I had to replace it and a MacBook Pro was the natural choice. I could have gotten a computer for under $1,000, but it wouldn't offer everything a Mac offers and wouldn't be as user-friendly to the graphic designer in me.
