    Hey guys! :)

    A few months ago, my aunt gave me a 17" CRT Apple Studio Display she had obtained and had no use for, and I posted about it here, asking what I could use it with. It turned out that the Power Mac G4 I had wasn't an Gigabit one, so it didn't have the ADC port needed to match the display.

    So, last week, my same aunt dropped off another G4 she promised me she'd let me have when she was able to come into town, and lo and behold! It's a Dual 450 MHz Gigabit Ethernet model! That means it has an ADC port, so today I finally was able to set it up and get the hard drive cloned and everything. The display works great, as well as the G4!

    Here are some photos. (Also accompanying the Power Mac is my iMac G4 Server.)

    Wow, I have not seen this CRT Apple Studio Display ever before - it looks great. I've always liked the look of iMac G3/eMac, but this looks even better (to me).

    Congrats on that nice setup!

    Hey, you are lucky to have an aunt like yours making you really cool presents like that.
    I'm from the "uncle-party" and I would be happy about nephews like you, who are happy to get my :apple:s if some day the time will come ... :)
