here's pic of my home/office set-up.. in picture:




1. Dell XPS Gen 4 + Dell 20.5" Wide TFT
2. iMac 20" Intel Core Duo 2 2.16GHz / 2GB RAM / 260GB HDD
3. iMac 24" Intel Core Duo 2 2.16Ghz / 2GB RAM / 500GB HDD / TV Tuner
4. MyBook WD 500GB Firewire 800 HDD
5. HP NC4200 work laptop
6. HP officeJet 3310 WiFi Printer/Scan/Copier

Ofcourse everything is Wireless kind of crammed, but hopefully the dell will be gone soon.. I originally bought the 20" iMac day it was launched as I they didn't have any 24" on display.. typicall changed my mind shortly after so today went and bought the 24

That's a sweet work setup!

I love the black desk and file-cabinet combo.

And Front Row looks just sweet in that picture.

thank you.. blame it on Crate & Barrel :/ it was relatively cheap, bought combo desk/cabinet/bookshelf and chair under $1700 if I remember correctly...

I would not post for just one coincidence/small world moment - but four in one image, Ive got to.

1. I have the same exact Dell 1800FP (nice monitor in its day)
2. I have the same style 20" iMac. (with the same speed CPU @ 2.12 GHz Core 2 Duo)
3. I have the same windows and view in my old room
4. I grew up on Merritt Island, which is next door to the Cape - I'll bet money the windows came from the same factory

Im almost tempted to take my computer and monitor and recreate the shot next month when I go back for thanksgiving.

Not to get too off topic on this its just so many coincidences in one picture freaked me out.

Connected via teleport I have a Powerbook G4 and connected to the two Sony monitors is a PC, with a P4 3.4 HT.

Fixed it for you.

You need the "IMG" tag in square brackets around the URL of the offsite image.

Click the yellow "image" icon in the message box toolbar and paste in the URL of the image. vBulletin will paste in the URL surrounded by the "IMG" "/IMG" tags.

That's a little harsh.

It does look like the camera was the kind found in a phone, or one with a native resolution much lower than the advertised resolution, like a camera with a VGA sensor that's advertised as a 2MP camera because it can save upscaled images to that resolution.

I actually live in downtown Melbourne (which means that I live in three-block zone that gets to be called "downtown") but it's way easier to explain Cape Canaveral to the people of the world. I live on the bottom floor of a condo that was built in the late sixties out of concrete and steel. It is fully hurricane-proof, even the windows. What they lack in looks they make up for in strength.

I bet. I read Melbourne and I assumed Australia until I thought about your Cape Canaveral reference.

The lid of the powerbook/macbook-pro is closed. There are instances in the past where this had yielded ugly results.

From your signature I can't figure out if you are saying the mac pro is useless in a home environment or that you like it.

It could be taken to mean that it's either ugly, overkill or both. I do agree it's overkill for most people but I don't think comparing it to the CXT is fair. Maybe if you were using the Xserve as a home computer. I think it's more accurate to compare Mac Pro to a 250/350/2500/3500/Escalade/Suburban type truck.

I'm saying that its overpowered and overpriced for a home computer. It's a professional workstation, not a desktop. That why intel created Conroe and every other computer maker uses by the way.

Well a lot of people buy the MacPro so there is something to it. Lots of old men buy cars that can go 200 mph too, same thing.

It's a PowerBook, and I've never had any issues at all with any kind of heating. I use it all day like this, and then when I travel I just take the PowerBook with me.

I wondered about it. How old is it and how long have you been using it like that? Does the thing get very hot on the metal part behind the keyboard, is it nearly too hot to touch?

Some people are saying that the heat would cause the LCD picture quality to fade and such even when the screen is off, though I'm not totally convinced either way. LCDs are damaged with intense heat, but I just don't know if a closed Mac Book (Pro) is intense enough to do this. One example that was brought up was LCD projectors getting noticeably faded after 8000 hours, but LCD projectors focus several hundred watts of light and heat through three panels that are less than an inch square, which is probably 10x or more intense than what you will find in a notebook.
