My Current set up:

Just a 2.2 GHz Intel i7 15" Macbook Pro. Hooked up to an ex-display giant 37" iPhone 3G, which i converted to a HDMI input via mini display port.


And my current Bedroom TV set up has a G4 for music & YouTuben'


Plus my work set up is a 2.8 GHz Quad Core mac pro with a 30" cinema display, also running windows via VM-ware on a second display.

Hi I have a question about that display? How old is the display? I want to buy one off of eBay and I was wondering what do I need to do to be able to use it? I am considering a 20 inch or 22 inch, do you use a power adapter for the monitor?

I'm not the OP, but I presume you're talking about his aluminum cinema display? I've owned a few of them in the 23" size (they don't make a 22, unless you're thinking of the acrylic models). They were made between 2004 and 2008, and they do require a power adapter (20" requires 65W, 23" requires 90W, and 30", 150W). Many eBay sellers do not include power adapters, and they can be expensive, so make sure it's included before you bid!

Also, I advise staying away from the acrylic monitors (the only design with a 22" display). They don't require a power adapter, but they do connect with a proprietary connector known as ADC, which only older Macs have (unless you get a _really_ old display, like 1999-old, which used DVI). To connect to a newer Mac you'd need to purchase an ADC to DVI adapter, which can run $100 alone.

Hope this helps!

Are you referring to the desk in zwodubber's setup? If so, I believe it's the Ikea MICKE Desk that does have working drawers.

Not my typical set up with my Thunderbolt Display, but here is my laptop next to our family iMac. Using it here as doing some work which requires both computers!

Edit: Oops, uploaded pics on my phone and it didn't work, should be here now.
