If it is that important to you don't you think cleaning the thing is necessary?

So after a few truck trips and hours of putting the desk together, cutting another middle piece to use as a shelf and starting at the empty desk trying to plan where to put all of my gear, here it is

I bought supporting legs from IKEA to help with the weight.

Every cable is labelled at the start and end destinations. I've tried to tie as many cables together as I can. I'm going to wait a few months to ensure I don't move anything around then will buy some velcro straps.

Still to come:

- will move the white imac out and into the living room to be the 'family' computer

- need to set up my nikon coolscan

- a few more A/V pieces need to be set up beside the filing cabinet on the right hand side

- researching new speakers - so far looking at the Rokit line as I need flat sounding speakers for the accuracy of my client tape transfers

- waiting until Monday or later next week to see if Apple announces a new 27" monitor so I can see whether or not the 24" display refurbs drop in price (or buy NEC, Dell or Samsung screens - they have to be fantastic for colour accuracy). It's hard for me to get away from Apple b/c I've been a huge fan of the 20" display I paid big bucks for almost 6 years ago
Looks amazing, but I think it would be even nicer to have the towers on the floor and the ACDs where the towers are now. It would look a bit less crowded that way IMHO.

thanks for the feedback. i agree and I actually had them on the floor in the last set up (never posted), but the problem was 2 fold:

1. dust - harder to clean and reach behind the towers. Now it's at a great level which makes it easier to clean that pesky dust and also to change cables if need be.

2. access to burners - I burn plenty of DVDs so it's better to have them at a higher level which is easier to grab. I have my printer station set up on the opposite side of the towers (not visible), so it's an easy grab, turn and place on the printers. I do want to get an automated printer, but not ready to spend the money on one just yet

Cheers,
Keebler

Probably because one is older, and he still uses it but he bought a new one because the older one is slowing down? Your saying if you had two, you would hide one even if you periodically used them both?

If I had two, I would transfer my data to the new one, sell the older one, and recoup some of my investment

question for some of you...

why is that some on here connect their MBP to their iMac/desktop?

it it to network between the two?
if so, can't that be done wirelessly?

thanks.
