Added a 24" iMac this week for extra projects. It had a 24" external monitor that I used to use with my MBP.

Here's a shot of the rear of the Mac Pro:

The Mac Pro has 4x20" HPs, 1x30" Apple, and 1x19" ViewSonic.

Here's a shot of the wire organization that's going on, it looks like a mess in the basket but everything is tidy and ziptied.

Where did you get that basket, I'm looking for one

It's called SIGNUM from IKEA. I have one under each half of the desk, really makes a huge difference not having wires hanging down.

Here's a link

Thanks for the link as well. I'll probably end up getting ones of those. This is how I have my cables now:

What exactly do your do? I'm guessing some kind of programming, and just by the number of monitors, I am assuming that the Mac Pro is maxed out with its specs, any chance we can see the specs of the Mac Pro?

Set up with new keyboard! Hidden are my two hard drives (on my desk leg) and my printer (on a shelf next to my desk).

It's an iSkin keyboard protector, it keeps it clean and new, plus I really like the black on aluminum look!

Why is the power button in a different location?
I thought it was a 17'' but the cd drive isn't up high like on current models?

Yep, I write distributed software systems.

The Mac Pro is not totally maxed out :-). 8x2.8, 12 GB of RAM, 4 TB local storage, 3x2600 video cards. The iMac has 4 GB of RAM, same as the MBP.

I also have some test gear elsewhere in the room with a total of 12 GB of RAM (just 3 machines right now), Gigabit drops throughout the room and the rest of the house. I posted some pictures of the wiring closet in a previous version of this thread. The switches are currently just vanilla unmanaged switches, but I'm looking at changing over to some kind of cheap managed switches for VLAN support.

It is a 17" on the right and the 15" on the left.

Hmm, just looks off I guess, both looks the same size in the pic, to me. Was the cd drive positioned in a different spot on earlier 17'' models>?

I love computer setups. They're like command centers!!! I'm moving in a couple weeks and I can't wait to get all set up. I just wish more of it was apple Or that I had docks for my iPhone and iPod to make them look cooler in photos, haha.

We're only on the first page but already we have five different people using Apple's worst product ever, the Mighty Mouse. I ask of these people, do you think you'd still be using this if it didn't have Apple's logo on it?

Anyway, here's my setup as it once was:

With my (then) new Jonas desk in Oak from IKEA.

It could just be the flash making it look different than it really it. We'd need a better picture to really be sure.

I just though we had a potential leak on our hands. Must be the timing. I read Iraq, my mind though military, perhaps with some special new proto-type. Wishful thinking thats all.
