ahh, see the key difference there Leonis is that you're a pure Mac user from the looks of it.

i'm talking about the handful of PC and Mac users. i think every single one of us so far has shown our setups with parts everywhere, cases off and wires god knows where, to lord knows what.

So, opening up my case makes me less of a Mac user?

Is that like saying if I can cook and pick a nice arrangement of flowers for my girlfriend that I'm not a "real" man?

i saw the "borrowed from a friend" part, it's different then, can't feel free to abuse it.

and it doesn't make you more or less of anything, it's just an interesting trend i've noticed.

lol, people are a bit defensive around here lately.

Leonis you jerk.

I almost got to buy his duallie for him and ship it out to him, because of the pricing I can get... but the jerk went and sweet talked his own source into a better deal.

Damn you.

I was hoping to test drive that beast.

Sweeeeeeet setup buddy.

Iposted pics of my TiBook awhile back, but I am just sitting here thinking that I can't wait till next semester. My dorm room next year is probably going to be Mac only. I've got the TiBook500, one of my future roomies just got an iMac800, and the other is probably buying an iBook off his dad this summer. That is going to be sweet. :-)

PS-if you didn't catch the video of the "iMac unveiling" for which I posted a link in another thread, you should really check it out. <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/speaktruth/" target="_blank">http://homepage.mac.com/speaktruth/</a> it's the one called imac2001.mov, the other one is a short "trailer" from spring break. Both of 'em are worth the time they take to download IMNSHO

Ohmigod, Jonathan, you're using OS 9? Blasphemy! :eek:

Actually, I'm using OS 9 too, so I guess it's okay.

Be careful. This may end up on Spymac.

Well. Here's the formula. The actual length of life that his machines last is about 1/12 of the length he mention

Like when he says it will last for a year it only last for a month or maybe less.

Last time he said the 800Mhz G4 will last until next Spring. And it ended up gone in 1 months and a few days

I bet he will be saying "This machine is good enough for me need and it will be on my desk until fall"

That translates to ------- This machine will be on my desk for only a few weeks

EmAn. You said I am catching up right? I am far from it

Well, I figured I'd bite and post my set-up:


The only difference now is that the trackball has been replaced by a Kensington PocketMouse Pro (cuz I got tired of cleaning the dirt out of the trackball). And hopefully the iMac will be replaced with a Powerbook whenever a revision happens.

Hey! Your desk actually looks good under that iMac! I'll be damned. You had a G4 iMac desk all along. No wonder you had to replace your "old" PowerMac.

[edit: forgot the quotes around "old"]
