    Well.. After waiting around for Apple to do SOMETHING (similar to the 15 inch powerbook updates last year...creepy.) I went ahead and ordered a Refurb Dual 2.0. (www.smalldog.com has them)

    I was watching the Apple refurb section but they were sold out for the last week. However, Smalldog is expecting a shipment next Tuesday (13 machines.)

    This gives me the best of both worlds. If Apple updates within the next week, I can still cancel and get the new midrange..if not, I'm on to top of the line bliss (may be short lived but oh well...)

    Viva La Macintosh :D

    Thanks...I'll Post pictures of my setup when I get it going.


    I'm looking for a new desk too...any recomendations?

    It needs to support Two Towers (G5 and my PC), my 17 inch LCD and eventually my 20 inch Apple LCD (Working between PC and Mac with USB KVM)

    Something that matches the G5....:D

    I think I'll hold off being jealous until we hear how the Refurb thing works out.

    How are they working out?

    I need to decide on speakers....I have 5.1s hooked up to my PC but they won't work with my G5 unless I put a sound card into it...So I'm thinking a good pair of 2.1s will do.....My dad has the Inspire 3500s which are nice. I'm down to the soundsticks, the creatures or the Inspires....
