My (family's) Mac setup hasn't changed at all but here is the pic I posted in the "messy desks" thread recently.

Thumb resize.
Click to make big!

What you see behind the mess: iMac, Time Capsule, HP Photosmart all-in-one printer/scan/fax/copy, mine and my mums iPhones, wired keyboard and mouse, and lots of junk. Oh and there is an iPod Mini there too.

Specs: 20" 2Ghz iMac, 1.5GB RAM, 250GB HDD.

Specs. Brings me to my next point.

I'm sure some people are quite interested in the specs other people have, isn't that why we post? Signatures/specs/systems change over time, so how about the specs go in the post so when people come back and look in a year, month or even a week, we know what we see? My specs used to be in my signature, but as I post this, they aren't. Following?

Just my thoughts.

I have a friend that got a TiBook with a dead backlight and broken hinges for free. He took the hinges from another broken TiBook and and found out the problem with the backlight was the cable was shorting so he wrapped the two wires running from the inverter to the screen with electrical tape and it was fixed!

Poor, poor child.

It only happened once though, and they thought it wasn't worth fixing (the previous owners who were my friend's parents). I offered them it back, obviously, but they said I could keep it 'cause they already bought another Mac.

I'm 15, my mom bought me the monitor, but I payed for the MPB myself (with some of the money from my now-sold Whitebook, which my dad bought me). Now all I need is a mini DisplayPort adapter

Sorry its a bit fuzzy, I'm new to SLRs

EDIT: That spot on the monitor from the lamp is nowhere near as bad as it looks in the picture.

What I'm wondering is how the heck you guys save enough to get a new Mac! In my life I've had about $1500 total, but nowhere near that amount at one time.

Anyway, yes, paid for my iBook G4 and eMac myself. Great little machines, they are. I'm 16 now, bought the iBook when I was 15.

Well it's kinda all about ambitions, you need to be good at something "special" so you can get yourself a nice job. I work as a webdeveloper programming in xHTML, PHP and MySQL, 4 months of working and I had the money to buy myself the unibody Macbook Pro, Led Cinema Display and some other stuff. Just keep looking on a way to earn some money. Jobs which need self-study will likely pay much more than regular jobs like selling stuff at your local shop. I am 17 btw.

There's no magic here or fancy jobs. Most people under 18 are living with their parents, or under some other kind of support. That means they don't have any [relative to adults] bills, expenses, loans, etc. That leaves any money they might have to be spent on whatever they want.

Making money is simple: Go to the dump, snag a couple of Pentium III systems, sell them, and now you've got $200 in capital to buy other things to resell.

How exactly do you find work? It is my understanding that being a freelance webdev (or freelance anything for that matter) is a tough road. I guess since your still in school and don't have to rely on steady work it makes for some nice spending money though.

Well as always you need to start at the bottom of the ladder, it's not you who needs to find a job. The job needs to find you, start by making some name while participating in an open-source project (phpBB was it for me). Release some of your work for open-source, thrust me... people saying your stuff rocks really gives you a kick in the right direction. Then just start by making some custom plugins/styles/modifications for that particular open-source project this way you'll get some money to buy some cool stuff like an iPod or so. (Worth-mentioning: People in my country (The Netherlands) under 29 can earn max. $1600 (1200) per 3 months without paying taxes for it).

Anyway, let's get back to the topic.. once you've made a name and are quite well known in the "local" web world and thus having some interesting people in your msn-list. You can start showing your work to them, don't act like your watching for a job. Just ask them some feedback.

Now this is where the action begins, once some people saw your work and liked it, then they will automatically contact you for a potential job they might have for you.

So after all it all depends on what you do with your internet-life. But in my opinion the internet is THE opportunity to express yourself to other interesting people. Just don't be impatient, hard work will always pay off .

Once you have the job, don't just sit back and relax. But keep on working, you can always climb higher on the ladder.

One last advice... using hide-names on the internet can be good, spam-bots or evil people will never see your real name... but remember that this will also prevent interesting people from seeing your name. Offcourse it's your own choice to use whatever name in the internet you want, but I didn't (simply because I hadn't thought about the consequences). Having a good job I don't really care that my Gmail is flooded with spam. (Isn't this why they invented spamboxes in the first place?).

So far my road to where I am now, it took me two years to accomplish it. I hope some of the readers here can do something with it.

Anyway... it's 12:15 am here in the Netherlands, I'll just stop typing before I discover I'm late for school next morning.

Thanks for sharing.

For me the biggest problem is not knowing what I want to do. I've done a little of everything, but I still don't know which way to go. I've been fixing computers at least since early high school, I have a box full of different operating system discs, taken a couple programming courses, two mcsa courses. Last summer I messed around for the first time (seriously anyway) with html. Took intro to web design last semester and was bored out of my mind. Finished the book a few weeks in and read up on online tutorials.

My problem is I want to be able to do it all. Unfortunately, although I think being well rounded is a must, I realize you can't know everything about everything. I'm nearly halfway done with a BS in computer science and I have no better idea of where I'm going than when I started.
All I know is I'd like to be able to start a business and not have to put in my 8-5 every day for someone else's gain.

You need to get a keyboard and move the monitor to the middle so you do not hurt your neck looking to the side to see the monitor.
