    Bored in lunch so just went through the Apple UK store and specced up a 2.7PM with two 30 inch screens, 800GB HD etc etc and it came to a cool.....

    ....£9012.97 including tax.

    That's $15,935.35 USD

    WOW, that's a lot! I noticed you put 2 Bluetooth Modules in there (and 2 Airport Extreme cards).

    2 Bluetooth modules is a mistake indeed. Ah well - minus £20/$40! Only one Airport card though

    Almost half of that price is the two monitors so drop that and it goes down a fair bit, but then, you don't have a maxed out system!

    why not lose one of the 30" and replace it with a sony 61" Plasma widescreen... its allways nicer to watch dvd's on a real big screen ;) price in € :19.000 *drool*

    or even better just add another graphics card to connect that one to it, so you'll get 2x30" workspace... and one 61" for entertainment when not working ;)

    hmmmz this reminds me: I need money!!! hahahaha

    Dont know about Euro 19,0000 but you know, a plasma screen, or better yet maybe a 40" LCD [for the second screen] would probably be money better spent. You can get a good one for £2000/$4000 easily!

    hmm to make it complete as workstation/entertainmentcentre... add the radio shark... and a popcornmachine + small fridge for those cinema moments ;) off course the fridge is dual purpose... allso to have a drink at hand while working... and while we're spending money... add an esspressomaker to the list... comfy couch...

    not to forget the nice villa needed to put this in :d hehe

    we're not talking about a budget buy :p

    and the plasma has HD res... that's why the price is higher... cheaper ones have 'normal' tv res...

    maybe replace the plasma with a HD projector... to enlarge the cinema feeling ;)

    maxed out in the belgian store: 13.878,49 € (= 18794,25 USD... damn...) + extra PCI card for video 150€? + plasma screen 19.000 € or projector 2.500 €

    Good point! Balls to being on a budget. I didn't think projectors liked video/computer feeds as it burns the constant images (toolbars, weapons caches etc) onto the screen? Or is that really old fashioned ones....

    Anyone got a spare £50k for this setup?!!! :eek:

    do'nt know about the new ones... but as I would suggest to use the 2x30" for work and the plasma/projector for tv purposes... ther would be no problem with toolbars etc...

    anyone who has 2x50k to spare... don't forget about me too :p hahahahaha
