    Continuation of the Post Your Mac Setup thread[/url]

    LaMerVipere wrote

    It would be great to show MacRumour member's Mac setups!

    AND even cooler, to see them past and present to show how they've progressed, SO, i shall start

    mine goes:

    1 • Power Mac G4 350MHz, and still going strong!
    2 • Rev A 12" PowerBook G4
    3 • eMac 1GHz Superdrive
    4 • 1GHz TiBook Superdrive
    5 • 12" iBook G4

    prior to getting the Power Mac I had a purple iMac though, I wish I had taken photos of it, oh well!

    Post photos of your setup! Your current one is great, but past setups too if ya have them!

    Well I don't have any pictures of my Mac but here is a list of what I have owned. I will try and get some pics of my current setup:

    1. iMac DV SE from late 1999 Graphite - The logic board died on this guy so I am keeping the case and one day I hope to put a new monitor and a mac mini inside
    2. iBook SE from 2001 Graphte - This was my first mac laptop and I purchased it as a refurb. It was damaged when someone tried to steel my bag off my back.
    3. iBook G3 800MHz lozinge from 2002 - Replaced above iBook and was damaged by some LCD safe cleaning solution
    4. PowerMac GD 1.42GHz DP from 2003 - I got a great deal on this machine when the G5 came out, only got replaced earlier this year
    5. PowerBook 12" from 2005 - This replaced my iBook untill some till git decided to throw my laptop bag onto the floor on a train because he couldn't reach his own bag!
    6. MacBook Pro 1.83Ghz - Replaced PowerBook and is still in use.
    7. Mac mini 1.6GHz Core Duo - I used this to replace my Sky+ and I use it as a home theatre.
    8. MacPro 2.66GHz - This is my current work horse and it flies. I have been doing a load of Matlab simulations and it is amazing how fast it is.

    Wow, thats a lot of machine! When i get my work station cleaned up I will post the MacBook Pro and MacPro.

    Ain't that the truth :)

    Makes my setup look puny. Oh well...

    I was wondering how the MBP deals with being sat on the desk rather than elevated... but mainly... what is the deal with the mighty mouse on glass? I didn't think they worked....

    It seems to be fine, there isnt really any heat issues, glass absorbs heat pretty well, and if it start to gets hot I just lift the lid...and as for the mouse...I have a lame Geek Squad mouse pad so it would take away from the sweetness, haha.

    Yeah I'm confused. Why kill one of the most popular threads in the forum? We had active conversations going on in there and now it's locked. WTH?

    Will that create a burn in or does that not really happen anymore?
