    Loaded Mac Pro, dual 30" ACDs and my portables would be a maxed out 17" MacBook Pro and a MacBook Air.

    Ha nice taste.

    My dad has the MacBook Air and wow that thing is conveniently light compared to my MacBook Pro. I'd consider selling my MacBook Pro and getting a 24" iMac and a MacBook Air.

    Lounge:
    Focal Grand Utopia III - before you decide to click on this link, I'll invite you to guess the price of a pair of these loudspeakers. Hint: money isn't an issue
    52" Sony Bravia XBR
    PS3 + External Blu-ray player
    AppleTV
    Some phat amp
    7.3 sound setup.

    Server:
    1 XServe in the AV cabinet
    1 XServe raid for all movie and full Blu-ray on demand rips (music too)

    Personal:
    Max'd Mac Pro for everything else.
    2 24" Apple LED LCD's (because 30" is just too big for normal usage).
    Ah hell, a mini powering a 30" ACD that's wall mounted just to give me my RSS feeds, the weather and my daily comics.

    And an equally luxurious house to fit these bad boys in!

    Almost forgot...a PB G5 too. :D

    maxed out mac pro with at least 2(but prolly 4) LED cinema displays (30" if they come out with one), maxed out 15" macbook pro with LED cinema display, bang and olufsen desktop speakers, and the biggest time capsule at the time

    and definitely and xserve setup for media storage and streaming as sammich mentioned, and your use of the mini and tv is really cool i have never thought of that before but it would be really useful

    wow the speakers seem pretty incredible. have you heard them personally? i love the idea of the EM motor for the low end. that must make it sound incredible. they probably arent worth the extra $249,000 over the B&W's i have now (got them from the rents), but if i had the money i would certainly buy them just to hear the low end.

    I'm not really a audio-man (so to say), being brought up in the lossy compression generation I don't think I could really appreciate the audio quality coming from something like a Focal. But the EM motor for bass is intriguing to say the least, plus the cabinet tilting thing.

    Speaking of B&W, I'd like to add a Zepplin to my list of things for my room.

    Yep. That's what I want. (Even though I do not have any Chem.E classes!)

    Plus one of those rumored netbooks. ;)
