..what would your dream setup be (given the current technology) ?

Mine would have to be...

AirPort

...and for when I don't want to sit at my desk...

667Mhz
1Gb RAM
48Gb HDD
AirPort

Diddo - but don't forget the TV turner card!

P.S. I've already got the T1 in my apartment, and you're right... it is sweet!

Ha, you're forgetting software too. But I guess you'd just get it all if you won the lotto, it wouldn't matter.

2 23" would be ok, but why not add another 23" or a sound card for digital input. Digidesign and protools.

are their any drivers for the usb ati tv wonder for os x?

i know my friend has one of those, but must boot into 9 every time he wants to watch tv (it doesn't even work in classic!)

i'm sure if there are some drivers my friend would be a very happy camper... let me know if you can help!

here's a question... theoretically how many 23" displays could you power off one g4... would OS X mind if there were say 4 pci video cards and 4 dviators?

i'll never be able to afford that kind of setup but just dreaming about it is fun :)

I don't know of an actual limit to the number of displays you can have, but 4 cards would get you 8 monitors. Crazy!
