    Well I might as well start off the bidding.
    I have 4gb of ram, Vertex SSD and Snow Leopard. This thing is seriously quick compared to my old Windows laptop.

    Response to Post Your Mac Setup

    My setup isn't much and I will have to add a photo when my camera decides to work. My description of my desk includes an iBook G4, chrome tape holder, stapler, and stapler remover. I also have my small chrome lamp that I got at a sale for $1.00 which I consider one of the best deals I have found at a sale. Anyways, my desk is hard to describe otherwise because it was a custom built by my grandfather for my birthday. It also displays my 50 antique wood cigar boxes which is my current thing I collect besides macs ;)

    It's the best computer upgrade I have ever done!!! I only purchased the 60gb version as that is all I need for osx and my other programs. I store all my music etc on an external!

    I agree, the SSD is the most beneficial upgrade you can do to a notebook these days.

    Really depends on the SSD you get though. The Intel X25s, the OCZ Vertexes, the SuperTalents and the G-Skill Falcons (which are re-branded Vertexes) are really the only ones that will give you a great speed increase. OCZ Solid and anything made by Patriot, A-Data, etc. are pretty terrible and not worth the price at all.

    I'll soon be putting a 128GB Falcon in my PC. :) It's going to fly! Photoshop will launch in < 2 seconds. :) I wouldn't mind sticking a 30GB Vertex or something in my MacBook Pro either! Wow!

    Is that a subwoofer on your desk? If so, why?

    Don't worry about it, people got on me when I had my rear surround speakers next to my monitor.

    Do a quick Google search on "subwoofer placement".
