Show us your desk!

post #1 of 130
Thread Starter 
There was a thread last week called "show us your mac pro's".

This threads purpose is to show us your current setup's. Whether is be your desk at home or work, whatever. Maybe we can get some ideas of things to add to our setup if we see other people with them.

Hopefully lots of people will post, if anyone doesn't have a place to host them from, email me to me at penningtonj@mac.com and I will be glad to put them on my dot mac account.

This is my home office ...







Thanks, Justin.

my desk totally sucks compared to that. I'm humbled...sniffle.

Looking for that perfect desk though. I'm kinda of realizing it doesn't exist and I'll probably have to make my own someday.

Very nice .

I really want a mac pro, but I am worried about the studio and cs apps. I use dreamweaver, fireworks, flash, photoshop, acrobat, and illusrator for hours a day. If anyone with a mac pro has those applications could you please let me know how they run in rosetta?

PS: I updated the first post to list the stuff on the desk.

Once again, FINNS2000, beautiful.

Very pretty setups, both of you. Finnns2000's makes me want a glass desk.

The OP definitely made this thread to show-off and make us jealous.

It worked.

Do you have an "Attach Files" box underneath the reply entry box under "Additional Options", or is that just me?

Lundy --

You need to turn of attachments for the registered users usergroup in the ACP if you want us to be able to upload them to the your server.

I figured that you disabled it to save space. vB turns it on by default.

Very very pretty setup, JP. The wall mounted LCDs are very cool. Elegant backup setup for power, WAN and data.

Wise move, IMO, to stay with PPC until the big apps are native Intel. You are used to fast response on that Quad and Rosetta I think would be disappointing and a productivity hindrance.

Re: the attachments, let me suggest that to management.

I love how you are open to this thread on your screen. My desktop will be pictured soon. As of now I don't have a digital camera.

Ok I borrowed my grandparents digital camera. I know it's not as great as the others, but hey, who doesn't want to look at Macs?



Pictured here is:

2.0 ghz MacBook
4GB rev A iPod mini
Other random crap



This is my stereo setup. I have an Airpot Express under there that I stream music to from my MacBook. Like I said, not as impressive as others but I'm happy with it.

Study at home. I also have an Epson scanner that's not in the picture. The iMac is a 2.1GHz G5 20 incher with 2.5 gigs of RAM. The 18" LCD to the left isn't connected to anything at the moment, but I'd like to span my iMac onto it as soon as I can find where to get the mini VGA connector.

The angle shows it like the 23" model.

I don't think you can extend the desktop of an iMac (at least the G5's) without modifying the firmware.

http://support.apple.com/specs/imac/iMac_G5_iSight.html About two thirds of the way down, look at Video, it says it only supports video mirroring.

Screen Spanning Doctor is the name of the program that fixes it.

The Dell monitor actually never belonged to a Dell, I just got a cheap deal on it.

Our house is two-story and the computer room is a small area upstairs that used to be a nursery. That’s where my desktop computer, a G5 Dual 2.5 lives when its not at the Apple Store for repair where it is now-- four times in the last month, all for the same problem.

Anyway, this is the downstairs computer located in an available space in the family room, a Titanium Powerbook 867 from 2002, with 1GB memory and an 80GB HD. Also included in the picture counterclockwise from the left is a Formac 20” FPD, a Sandisk 1GB thumb drive, a notebook for all the user names and passwords that I can never remember, a 20GB 2-Gen iPod, a Logitech wireless mouse and a LaCie 250GB FW drive that’s normally in the computer room.
