    Hey folks!

    We're always talking about specs and how fast and stables our machines are, but in the end it's not just about that, it's about what we do with them.

    Why don't you show a little of your work?

    At work, I use it for creating PDF's, filling out paperwork, and managing contacts and my calender using Address Book and iCal, respectively.

    At home, I attach a 20" external display and porn it up. :eek:

    I use it for everything - for work: programming, writing spec and design documents, testing my programs in Linux in Parallels, email and other general office work. For leisure: programming (yes, I'm a nerd), iTunes, organizing my digital photos, organizing and editing my home videos, email, web browsing.

    Mainly, I just bring it to committee meetings and set it on the table to vex all the Dellards present. It's so cute the way it sits there while they ask if I can open up Word files and actually play DVDs. And they're all wowed when we wifi together.

    Internet, e-mail, music college, entertaining my daughter

    I do some photos (iPhoto & PS Elements), and will be getting into more video soon.
    I'll also be setting it up for Skype to stay in touch when I'm away in college (maybe even video calling through iChat if I can convince Mrs 26 that a Mac Mini would be an ideal addition to the living room), and I'm in the process of ripping my dvd collection to an external hd, and it will serve as my media centre (sans tv) while away.
    I don't game, except I do occasionally miss Age of Empires 2 which I had on my older pc. I still have the disks and all.

    And wasting hours here.
