I was wondering if the apple section has a post your setup thread. So I created one.

I like this kind of threads so I'll post my setup too:


I still have two (2) PC's but am planning to replace them with one PowerMac-class system. It's a difficult time to make a buying decision now that the first intel-Macs have been introduced.

The Mac in the picture is the iBook from my sig (12" - 1.2Ghz G4 - 768MB - 80GB - BT/AE). Never been more satisfied with a computer! That was a fine whiskey by the way :D.

What's with the vaccuum cleaner on the right of your screen? That must be freakin' impossible to hear any sound from a game when you try to play.

Edit - ahhh, I see the headphones!

20" iMac: 2.1 GHz, built-in iSight, etc. Still a nice system even with the Core Duo version around.

12" PowerBook G4: 1.33 GHz, 80 GB drive, Combo drive. Probably going to be sold very soon.

Not shown are my 30 GB iPod and my burning desire to replace both Macs with a single MacBook Pro.

Excellent setup, Aurelius! You have a lot screen real estate to work with. I would get a Dell monitor for use on my PowerBook, but I just can't mix the two brands. I'm picky like that. :p

Edit: Here is mine:



It's a little cleaner now... but I still need a new mouse pad. Also I am getting a new desk soon. I need a lot more workspace. I feel cramped sometimes! o_O

anyone know when the core duo mini will be out?

We don't even know if it's going to use a Core Duo, and why would you bother asking in this thread?

Yes it is. You must fear and respect the 5.25" Diskettes

Hahahah, I haven't seen a box of those in years.

One more question:

WHY do you have a box of 5.25" floppies?

We were cleaning some stuff out here and came across quite a few boxes of 5.25" diskettes, so there are a few of us here at work that have them

Also have some SyQuest cartridge things laying around as well

I want to rob you of your computer, esr2.

Lol, do it, im not entirely impressed. the intelimacs are a far cry from the rock solid foundation i'd been used to, sure universals will help - but even programs like iChat aren't waht they used to be.

What do you mean? iChat doesn't work as it should? :confused:
