Cameras

I use the Sony Mavica MVC-FD91 for most posts here and it's probably my favorite. The Mavica line really is amazing; the photos, build quality, and user interface are great. The only editing I do to photos is resizing them if needed, they are all right out of the camera!

Video Game Consoles

The Famicom and Game Boy are my favorite to collect for, so many amazing accessories. The Super Famicom's RGB output makes it the best graphically and the best way to play Game Boy games on TV. The DSi's large library playable from the SD card is great, even has a camera!

Computers

The Toshiba Satellite line are my favorite and are so solidly built, even the original hard drives are all still working perfectly. Includes all the ports you would ever need, even the futuristic USB! Also can't beat a IBM Thinkpad for more modern computing. Everything made afterwards is junk.

TVs

CRTs are beautiful and will always be superior. The Sony Trinitron PVM and BVM line are the best made. My Super Famicom has an RGB connection to the PVM; the N64 and GCN have an S-Video connection to it. My Famicom has a composite connection to the Sharp TV; Wii has a component connection to it.

Calculators

The Elektronika MK-61 is the most fun and the one I use the most. The MK-52 is pretty much the same but good luck remembering how to save and retrieve your programs from the EEPROM every time you need to use it; and it's bigger and takes more batteries.

PDAs

The PalmPilot Professional has the best look and feel but the OS is too old for many apps and only 1 MB of memory is not enough. The Symbol SPT1800 is very rugged and has a removable rechargeable battery; the scanner is fun to play with too.
