I know a lot of people will be getting new additions to their Mac families this Christmas/holiday season. So show off your new stuff and post your updated setups -- make sure the gifts are in the pic (your 5G iPod, your iSight, a new case for the iPod...whateva!).

I still have about 10 hours to go and I don't know if I'm getting any Apple stuff yet. Merry Christmas everyone!

Well here's what I got for Christmas. The iPod is great, however I have to return the Creatures because they don't work :( . BTW, I love your setup!

When I first plugged everything in (It was right), I heard lots of static so I unplugged the left satellite. When I did that, I heard a loud popping sound followed by a burning electrical smell. I unplugged everything and plugged them back in and the LED on the back of the sub never came on. I think something has shorted out; I plan on calling JBL tomorrow and asking about a replacement. Or I could go to the Apple Store on Thursday and see if they would let me exchange them for a new pair. It sucks, but w/e my iPod is so figgin awesome!

P.S Get on AIM!

I'm reserving this spot for the picture I'm going to take later today :p

Edit: Here we go.. brand new LCD (the one on the right.) My room is never that brightly lit as it is with the flash (I have a loftbed so under it is my desk and on the top under the mattress I use a rope-light and that's about it) so you can't really tell the difference between the LCD's as much. These are great.. I also got a Radeon 9800 Pro. That's it for my Mac stuff this christmas. Last Christmas was an iBook.

Any word on if the 30" will need dual-DVI? I'd assume it would, but it'd be killer if it didn't, and a huge advantage for Dell over Apple.

Ooh I've heard of it, but never tried it. Being an ex-windows user I was just comfortable using MSN. Are their any benefits to opting for Adium? Ill check the site anyway.
