Please refrain from quoting images. If you want to see the picture that a post is referring to, you can press this button: .

For large images (over ~800 pixels wide), please use [timg] tags rather than plain old [img] tags

We ask that everyone refrains from reposting the same image in multiple threads. That includes the "Under 18" as well as "Post Your Mac Setup" threads.

We do realize that this will still sometimes occur. If/when that happens, please report it by clicking on the "Report Post" icon () and include a link to both posts. Thank You.


---------------------

After weeks of messing around with defective monitors, finally got my dream setup:
Thumb resize.

Works great and I love it. Now I just need the 5870, so I don't have to use 2 video cards.

Because the forum software has trouble with threads over 2000 posts, so ongoing threads get split into new parts around that point.

Previously: Thumb resize.

...and now: Thumb resize.

You can guess where the money from that 3rd 30" went

I keep most of my books on it...hoping to get another monitor soon.

Wow... trading a 30" display for a 10" display. That's something I could never do, even if I had two others. Hell, having two others would make it even harder

From the pictures I can conclude you traded a 30" monitor, your Canon 70-200mm, and the orange frog for an iPad.

That HP was the worst of the bunch anyway...I'm looking to go all Dell

Here's my setup as of today! Sorry about the image quality, took the photo with my iPhone as my brother has stole my camera for the weekend. I'll post a better quality image when I get it back.



The Xbox and Win7 PC are for Gaming and Media and my MacBook is for work!

This is my new setup, I am still playing around with it



It is kinda dark but I like it dark^^

I also can't stand wood I don't know why, but that is just a personal preference

When its daylight again I'll try taking another picture if there is interest

Here it is.

No more PowerBook. Love the new Mac Mini, I would put in an SSD, but they're still too expensive, and I really don't need one. Its extremely quiet anyway.

Stock Mac Mini 2.4ghz + 4gb of RAM (Crucial off Newegg)
20" Cinema Display (I'm going to mount that powerbrick behind the desk, I hate looking at it)
Bose Companion 2 speakers
64gb iPad WiFi
160gb iPod Classic

Well, I just did it, I used green strip putty (I can't remember the name), looks like this only a pine-green



I mounted it to the back of the desk, worked really well, just take 2 very small (half inch or so) peices and stick it on. It cleans up pretty easily off plastic, just don't try putting it on dry wall or plaster. (Hence, why I put it on the back of the desk, it wont come off very well, but who looks at the back of the desk?)

Alright. I'll go look for that or something similar at Wal-Mart or Target.

Thanks for the tips PowerGamerX

Thank you! I always like getting comments and feedback.

I've always been a huge fan of clean desktop setups, not much of a laptop or all-in-one guy, as I like ease of upgrading and replacing things, and while the Mac Mini was far from that, its a good medium, as its cheap(er) compared to the rest of the mac lineup, and is cheap enough that in 2-3 years I don't mind dropping the cash on another one. Also like doing some semi-pro/hobby image editing, so the 20" Cinema Display is great for me.
