    ..what would your dream setup be (given the current technology) ?

    Mine would have to be...

    Power Mac G4
    Dual 1Ghz
    1.5Gb RAM
    3 x 72Gb Ultra 160 SCSI HDDz
    2 x 23" Apple Displays
    10Gb iPod
    AirPort

    ...and for when I don't want to sit at my desk...

    PowerBook G4
    667Mhz
    1Gb RAM
    48Gb HDD
    AirPort

    with a T1 connection to the web; mmmmm.....that would be soooooo sweeeet! :D

    Diddo - but don't forget the TV turner card!

    Ha, you're forgetting software too. But I guess you'd just get it all if you won the lotto, it wouldn't matter.

    2 23" would be ok, but why not add another 23" or a sound card for digital input. Digidesign and protools.

    are their any drivers for the usb ati tv wonder for os x?

    i know my friend has one of those, but must boot into 9 every time he wants to watch tv (it doesn't even work in classic!)

    i'm sure if there are some drivers my friend would be a very happy camper... let me know if you can help!

    here's a question... theoretically how many 23" displays could you power off one g4... would OS X mind if there were say 4 pci video cards and 4 dviators?

    i'll never be able to afford that kind of setup but just dreaming about it is fun :)

    I don't know of an actual limit to the number of displays you can have, but 4 cards would get you 8 monitors. Crazy!
