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

For large images please use [timg] tags rather than plain old img tags

We'd actually 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).

In addition to folks not doing so, we realize it'll sometimes occur. If/ when that happens, and you notice? Please report it by clicking on this icon: and include a link to both posts. Thank you.

dude! I have the exact same bedcover!
hahaha

great setup btw, same for me most of the time. I could still see you have dual displays on your desk for getting hardcore once in a while.
What brand TV is that btw?

New Hardware Bonanza!

I recently got an HP Pavilion zv5320 to babysit and set up a triple boot of XP, Ubuntu, and OS X for the owner. The behemoth is now on my desk.

I also purchased a Dell E248WFP. It's kinda cool.

Anyway, here they are.




Comments=good. I need to better my layout.

Good catch!

@sukanas: Why don't you move the 'woofer a bit off to the side so you have somewhere to put your feet?

I have my feet on top of my Powerbook right now. I keep it on top of a Powermac G3 case... the perfect warm, sleek, elevated footrest!

How much are those dell monitors you have?

I'm tempted to get one and run my powerbook in desktop mode or use 2 monitors.

I have an extra viewsonic monitor from a while ago, but it's square and looks horrible especially with the powerbook screen resolution.

I hope you're NOT using it in the mirrored mode?

Thanks for the comments guys. Here's the desktop picture;
http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap080412.html

The light is just something I ripped off a little waterfall thing I had that stopped working. Getting that light behind the monitor and centered was so freaking hard, I thought it was going to send me over the edge. The Monitor is 24" and I just raised it a few inches up over where I had it on the stand.
