30gb 5g white ipod
PC + 17" LCD for autocad/gaming
fridge
micro + convection oven (roommate is bringing both)
fridge
17" TV (i think) + xbox 360 (roommate is bringing both)
and any others i forgot...

oh and of course a cell phone :cool:

I don't have a photo of my setup whilst I was living in my college but I can post a photo of my setup in the apartment I moved into whilst still at Uni.

College = Residence affiliated with the University.
Uni = Place you go to get a degree.

Give me a day or two and I'll clean up the mess that is my desk - it's not technically a Uni setup now that' I've graduated but it's the same look and feel.

My Future college Setup (in two years time) will most likely be

The MBP 2.0 Ghz/256vRam/1gB ram (soon to be two?)/ 15" Screen, i bought myself.
and why arent my parents going to be paying for a college computer two years down the line? because they had such a fit about me spending my money on this:D ooh well, i still love them, i think its better though, this way i'll still have a pretty kick-ass computer, but i wont be tempted to play as many games as i would if i had the top-of-the-line compy, which will no doubt help my gpa. :p

Also, I'm bringing a MacBook there with 2GB RAM. Perfect because it's nice and portable.

Well, if you want I could scan in a pic of my undergrad setup from a few years back - though it's just a crappy Fujitsu laptop on a bed. Oh, and at some point my roommate and I got a 12" TV/VCR combo. Woo!

Man, I don't know how kids these days afford all the stuff they do. Maybe I just spent my limited funds on other things (food, guitars, liquor, women).

My "grad school setup" is in the regular Mac Setups.

Baylor is a private school and not a state supported school. A friend of mine was number one in my class (we only had 52 people and I was like 36, I honestly don't care because I have a passion in life and I will pursue that passion and enjoy life) decided to go to Baylor, I found that silly when he could have had FREE tuition for any number of upstanding state schools.

As for the thread, I will be living at home while I attend Texas State Technical College, it isn't a fancy school, and is just considered a trade school, but I will be able to get my foot in the door and pursue my passion, and that is my goal.

I really admire how you didn't give up on college life, alot of the kids in my school even some in the top 10% don't really even want to go to college! Right now they are working in food services (McDonalds, "Would you like fries with that") and said it is good enough for them.

Good Luck,

Umm yeah, when you get your MB(P) the power brick is by default only set up with a direct thing to plug into the wall, but in the box there's a cord to plug into the power brick where that plug thing is (you have to pull it out). I've had no problems plugging it into the wall.

Thanks, and even though i've heard people complaining of the size of the "Power Brick", I think it is great compared to my current To"shita" laptop... It's charger is almost twice it's size!!! :eek:

The MB's powerbrick is the same size as the PB's. Only the MBP's is larger.

Back on topic... here are the only two pics that I could find of my dorm last year. Please excuse the Asus laptop (stupid school required it). I get to use my mac this coming year instead. Needless to say I'm quite happy. I'll post pics of that setup as soon as I move in.

Actually I had a PB before this MB and I am positive they are nearly identical in size. Someone else said that the MBP's brick is the heavier one, so perhaps that's what you meant?

BTW: here was my set-up last year. Eventually I'll have to get a photo of the office in my apartment..

Well I practically don't use mine anymore (getting it replaced by a next rev MB), but I never took it to class. A law study is quite egocentric so the only thing you have to do is learn everything they tell you. Most of the time if I listen carefully I remember it though, if I type/write while listening I would have to learn it again afterwards. Besides most of the time they put a summary of what's told in class on the net so no use for it.
So I don't see that changing with my new MB either, I do use it for school though when I visit my parents or when I'm abroad but still need to study :(.
It really depends a lot on what your studying I guess, I can imagine the design/technical studies to have a lot more use for it in class.

wow..a picture thread...with no pictures...this is revolutionary. It's even better than that "post pics of your cell phone from the manufacturers website" thread.
I think I'll start a "post your unicorn" thread. :p

Yep, thats a pc sitting on the floor, only used for gaming and storage, or if I have to do some intense Photoshop work (hate to say it, but is faster than the G4) My PC and powerbook are hooked up to a KVM switch. Makes it really easy if you have to use windows also.

And for the record...the ugly desk/table came with the apartment :D

My Uni Setup

Nice Ikea Desk, is it sturdy enough, or does it vibrate everytime when you are typing? I'm replacing my desk by that one or a white galant.

Yeh its sturdy enough, the little rubber bits keep it all securly on!

One thing that is aggrivating is my housemate finds it funny to tap stuff (like my phone or wallet or watch) to the middle of the glass underneath the glass, which is a pain to get out...!

Currently: eMac and a 600Mhz G3 iBook. All purchased for about a total of $1000.

I'm going to be a junior in about a week.

I figure all I do is type papers, email, waste time on the 'net, listen to a lot of iTunes and chat. Do I really need anything more?

Seriously, some of the MBPs are practically overkill for undergrad work.

Kinda hard to see the computer with that 1700" HDTV in the way, but you get the idea :p

No offense, but I don't think a&m is the best in Texas - unless you're getting a degree in meat judging, that is. ;)

Dang that's sweet...:D What do you need two screens for in college?:p

BTW, is the iBook handy to bring for class, or is it too big with 14"?

The dual screen helps for when you have Safari up, 5+ IMs, 1 video chat window from Skype (iChat just doesn't work with Video), maybe 1 Quicktime Movie, iCal, iTunes and not to mention free space for some widgets. It comes in handy! Also, when I want to, I can turn "mirroring" on and watch movies and DVDs from my bed right behind my desk.

The iBook is great in the classroom, although I really should have bought the 12" Powerbook :(. Oh well, the iBook has treated me very well within 2 semesters; it really helps with college, I can't think of another laptop that is more useful for college students.

Oh, I just usually can't multitask like that. I click out at 7 IM's, then there is no room for QT, iCal, Safari or Widgets. Perhaps iTunes and a video conversation over MSN, but no more.

You can't think of any better? What if I say Macbook?:D

That's a pretty cool shot. How far away are you from the Mike Myers track? I used to run there when the Texas Relays were held back when I was in High School.

My computer multitasks - I listen to music on iTunes, program with XCode 3-15 files open and Project builder - 1 file open 4 windows, have 1 camino window open with multiple tabs, mail in the background, adium open, chats going sometimes, and sometimes more than that. My iBook was built to multitask once it got the 512MB upgrade (1GB mem)
