To join in the recent trend of seperate setup pics, lets see the Powermac family :). I like the idea of segregating the setup pics into Apple products!

G3, G4 or G5 or even before...

Very, very nice.

I'll post a shot of my setup as soon as my new desk is finished being built, and I get my art back up on the walls.

Again, here's the 20 in. Cinema on the desk with Amp and Reel to right, underneath the desk is the beast (Dual 2.5 G5) the heat of it keeps the legs warm under the desk.

Thats a great setup - Alienware + Apple can never go wrong... unless you like, you know, get a virus or something.

Alienwares are awesome machines though. Lucky!

Hmm, is that a PC that I see under your desk there?

Yes, the one on the right hand side with a keyboard on top of it.

Really shows your age with that Apple CRT. Don't see too many of those nowadays.

Yup, where it belongs!

Unfortunately I need one for University as we have to use 3Ds Max which is PC only :(

Hardly ever gets used though :)

As someone said though, best of both worlds :)

I have herd that the 23" cinema displays have problems with pixels and what not, is this true? I always thought that it was the optimal size (20" is small and 30" is way to big)

There are about 70 cable ties and cable tie mounts under the desk to keep it all neat like that. It's gonna suck when I have to move. :p

Still a nice picture. Is there a reason that she isn't currently in action? Of the three Power Mac G4 designs this is still my favorite. IMHO Apple just made them look worse with each update.

My photos, and groups of computers are not as photogenic as the other beautiful setups.. I still need to get rid of some junk (Macs not included) and buy a big desk. I have some non Powermac computers in these pictures, but all but I hope nobody minds.

Here is my Quadra840 (not a Powermac sorry) and my Powermac 6500 /275.

My Powermac 6230/cd with TV tuner, and Macintosh IR remote. This box is only used to record, and watch TV :)

Here is my upgraded G3, Powermac 6200cd and Ipod 15gb. The G3 is a network server now, and I VNC into it with my other computers on the network.

EDIT: 6320 not 6230, get that backwards all the time

How does your B/W G3 work as a server? I'm thinking of turn my B/W G3 into a server to. Do you got any tips for me?

The box works well

I have mirrored 160 GB drives, and I use the system to share Itunes music, and any Video work I do on the G4 or G5 computers. It also runs Folding@home so the CPU has something to do besides waiting for me to copy files back and fourth.

The box works great, and is really quite stable. Since I don't do much on the desktop I simply use VNC to connect to it for any work I need done. The uptime on it currently is about 1.5 months, with considerable amount of use with synching the iPod, and streaming music to about 3 other comptuers on my home network, and 1 neighbor that connects VIA WIFI (gotta love townhomes and bridged wifi networks :)

iGary.. your setup is so gay. :p


I get stressed about cables... the Apple keyboard needs to be freed!!! grr it annoys me..

The tiger on background has NOTHING to do with OS X Tiger. I've had a tiger as my back drop since I had a GUI (7 yrs old - now 18)) it changes whenever it feels tired. He protects my comp ;) (Favourite animal btw, im only slightly weird).

Here it is!
