    Cool! The 1600SW monitors were great in their day... I used one for a quite a while until I could afford to get a bigger screen. Awesome image clarity although I doubt they'd compare well with today's brighter tighter monitors.

    i don't currently have a tower mac, but i do have a PC that i wouldn't mind having a dedicated display on. these displays are going really cheap right now, so i'm tempted to go this route. plus, it'll be ready for teh Mac Pro when i finally get one :rolleyes:

    I just hooked one to a Mac Mini

    More information on adapter choices is here

    The 1600SW uses an obsolete video connector, so you need an adapter of some sort.
