Haven't posted a pic since I replaced my hackintosh with a 24" iMac.

This is a 24" 2.8 GHz iMac with 4GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive, connected to a Dell 2407wfp. On the left is a MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz (LED display) also with 4GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive (that's my work laptop) connected to a Dell 2007wfp. I use Teleport to control both of them with the iMac's KB/mouse.

Other Macs not pictured: my wife's black MacBook and the Mac mini attached to the plasma TV running Plex.

I like the logo better, I was just wondering what your motives are. ;)

Can't buy a netbook for a while, though, as I just picked up a replacement for the iBook G4 : a Dell Latitude C610. 14" 1400x1050 screen, 1GHZ Pentium III, 512MB RAM, 60GB HDD, and a 5 hour battery. Not bad for $130. :D

I used to have this Compaq in the late 90's:

http://images.pcworld.com/reviews/graphics/57667-20574b.jpg

The reason i buy it was because: It looked cute and was cheap "at the time"

Intel Celeron 667MHz

But it sucked so badly! The thing made noise every-time i opened an application on Windows 98SE but hey!... the case looked quite nice at the time but still reminded me of the PowerMac G3 that i wished to have in the past, but instead i got that piece of trash Compaq which got infected with viruses twice a day.

The worst computer i've ever owned in my life... I upgraded the thing to Windows ME and things got worst then i expected... Infected with viruses named "Nimba@32mm.exe" and crash everywhere... Man... it was useless... nothing but troubles... i hated it! :mad:

Now it's in the dump since 2006.

Very very bad computer experience... I will never buy a Compaq again.

My ex's parents used that computer in their office. They decided to give it to me since they never used it anymore. I found out it had windows ME which is the worst windows OS ever.
Just parted out the computer for IDE cables, hard drives, and whatever else I could use.
It booted XP in like 15 minutes.

OMG!!! I remember those... almost everyone who I knew with a PC had one, or one like it!!!

I on the other hand, was a little mac user... and had a Macintosh Performa.. much much blander... but so so much cooler... I still remember OS7!!!

At that point, I didn't need alot of power from my computer... but god, those Laser Writer printers were a bull for the wallet!!!

I am SO seriously considering doing this.

What is the battery life like under OS X? What works? What doesn't?
Battery life on mine is +-2:45 (3 cell battery)
But i'm waiting for the 6 cell battery i ordered which has a battery life of 6 hours.

Everything seems to work:
- Wifi
- Bluetooth
- Sound
- Native screen resolution (1024x600)
- Trackpad
- Two finger scroll & side scroll
- Webcam
- And everything else...

Wait, I thought HP stopped making computers in the name of Compaq. Why does that Mini have Compaq written on it?
HP still make Notebooks with the Compaq branding.

By the way, where did you buy that? When I click the link on the Compaq website, it takes me to HP's...

I bought it on the HP Europe website

The Compaq mini 700 is basically the same as the HP mini 1000 (same hardware).
I bought the Compaq because it looks better ;)

Yeah they are great little netbooks, though I prefer the HP top case the design of the compaq is different and not as good to look at.

Compared the acer aspire one we have the hp is much nicer. I didn't have a chance to put os x on it to try out.

Oh wow. I had one of those before. Intel Celeron 600MHz w/ 64MB ram. Used it for 3 years and never crapped on me. It was amazing, I even gamed on its 4 MB integrated intel video card.

The HP netbook is much better aesthetically, however, the Acer costs $369 while the HP costs $549 last I saw.

Is the HP netbook easier to put OS X on? No need to replace the wifi card like in the Acer?

Currently it's hooked up to my PC.
Both computers share the middle screen so I've got dual monitors for both of them.
Still gotta get a new video card for my mac pro to hook it up. So gonna have triple monitors on my Mac

Wow, your color/contrast settings on those two displays seems to be quite different. On the one on the right, black is black. On the left, black is...blue?

Probably not from Apple, but hopefully some third party will. Monoprice already has Mini Displayport to DVI adapters (same as Apple's) for cheap, maybe next they'll do DVI to Mini Displayport.

That is odd. One could be VGA and the other DVI? :confused:
Or maybe one is used for color, and the other not?


...maybe next they'll do DVI to Mini Displayport.

I think they'll wait on Apple's next move with the Cinema Display. Surely they will introduce a "desktop friendly" model to replace the 30"

And since I made a post anyway:

I think what is happening with the two different colour "blacks" is the light hanging over the left one is effecting the appearance of the colour. In person I bet they're identical, I mean it would drive anyone nuts if they were actually off

Good observation everyone.

They actually do look different even when the light is off.
The reason is that the monitors are different models even though they look the same.
The one on the left is the 2407 and the one on the right is the 2408.
I bought them one at a time over a period of 6 months right when the 2407 was being discontinued. I didn't know they would be so different till I got it.
The 2408 has a lot of different inputs options which is great but the color accuracy is awful.
This is the reason I want to get 2 ACDs but can't due to the adapter issue.
So for now I can only edit images on the left :(

Wait, I thought HP stopped making computers in the name of Compaq. Why does that Mini have Compaq written on it?

I'm a little late to the party, but here's the real answer.

When HP bought Compaq, they found that they could sell twice the amount of stuff by keeping two brand names. If everything became HP or Compaq, some retailers would have slashed their shelfspace in half. By keeping HP and Compaq as brands in the consumer space, they kept all that shelf space.

In the corporate side, they just merged it. HP Proliant instead of HP Netserver and Compaq Proliant...

Corporate America is a wild place sometimes.

I'm currently between setups as I'm moving my office. I'm still working on the new one so for the time being I've got the new desk in the old office.

The plan for the new office is for their to be no cables on show at all if I can help it, you can see from the behind shot of the cable basket behind the desk.

The laptop is the 2.4ghz macbook, the screen is a 20in acd on a humanscale vesa mount. The thing on the left of the desk is my bt phone, and the iphone is a 3g one.
Tucked under the desk is all the power bricks etc along with a freecom 500gb xss drive which is very small and quiet.

I have the same desk but also with the glass top. And I have to say you just gave me a new weekend project for all my wires.

Makes a big difference to me I can't stand cables being under my feet or on show. It's a shame apple don't do a proper wireless keyboard with numpad as I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

Thought I'd update my setup pics.

I'm currently between setups as I'm moving my office. I'm still working on the new one so for the time being I've got the new desk in the old office.

The plan for the new office is for their to be no cables on show at all if I can help it, you can see from the behind shot of the cable basket behind the desk.

The laptop is the 2.4ghz macbook, the screen is a 20in acd on a humanscale vesa mount. The thing on the left of the desk is my bt phone, and the iphone is a 3g one.
Tucked under the desk is all the power bricks etc along with a freecom 500gb xss drive which is very small and quiet.

imgs snipped.

You can view some more of in progress on my flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/gordyhand/sets/72157616461145868/

Please oh please may you tell me where you got your Cobra bucket racing seat, and how much it was and also does it swivel? Thank you.

My wireless router, speakers and modem are behind on that little shelf as well. I rarely use my MB at home now (I use it at school and work) that I have the iMac, just had it sitting there for the picture, and sometimes I'll put it up there just for the music as I don't have much music on the iMac quite yet.

This was especially bad at family get togethers when I would share my pictures with everyone. So I finally just started making an announcement at the beginning of our reunion that the screen is for looking, and the keyboard is for touching! hahaha

I built it myself from a cobra car seat and an old office chair base. It swivels and changes in height. You can buy them directly from cobra, but they are very expensive compared to making them yourself.

Actually if you think about it, there is no such thing as a correct/good/bad white balance per se. Photos can always be made warmer and cooler to your liking for a certain feel. Like how sometimes when I use my grey card to get a reading and correct later in LR, sometimes the resulting photo is a bit too cool for my liking and I prefer the kind of feel AWB gave me.

I'm very happy with my Vizio, it's not as good as the Sony XBR2 upstairs in the TV room but for my office in the basement it's perfect! This model is a 32" (1080p) with 2 HDMI ports (Cable Box & PS3) and it was purchased last October at Costco for $549 I think.

Oh yeah, just wanted to mention, since it's not in my signature, the Mac Pro is as follows:

Dual 2.8ghz Quad Core Xeon
10gb of ram
3.32tb of hdd

You guys know the rest :)

When did you get the Mac Pro, Andrew? Last setup post from you I recall only had laptops and the Mini.

I'm very happy with my Vizio, it's not as good as the Sony XBR2 upstairs in the TV room but for my office in the basement it's perfect! This model is a 32" (1080p) with 2 HDMI ports (Cable Box & PS3) and it was purchased last October at Costco for $549 I think.

Best value for the money out there IMO.

My friend and I bought our Vizio tvs at Costco in February. He got the same model as you and I got the 37" version. He's really happy with his, but he has yet to even see any 1080p content on his tv. I wish I would have gotten the 42" model, but then again if I got it, I would have wished I got the 46" model. It's a never-ending cycle.

I incorporated my u-verse box and soundsticks into a chest of drawers and fished the connectors thru to the top of the chest using a hole-saw... any other time my macbook is in my lap anyway...

No one said anything about desktops anyway! ;)

I go without a desk quite often, but that's because our current apartment is very small. Starting in June though, it's a whole different story! :)

to be honest i've tried it with a desk twice... the 13" screen is just too small to use on a desk imho...

I like the asymmetrical monitor stand. I'm waiting to see if they're going to update the mStand design to match the foot on the new iMac's and 24" ACD before I buy one. I'm hoping it'll cut down on the fan noise when I'm in clamshell mode.
