    Santa should bring me an 8-core 2009 Mac Pro daughterboard freshly fitted with two custom 3.33 GHz Xeons to swap out with the 2.66 GHz Quad in this machine, and 32 GB of RAM would be nice :p

    A brand new iMac in the iMac G4 body! I love my iMac G4 but it doesn't cut it anymore!

    with the space available in that casing, one could easily fit a Mac Mini logic board and components, and maybe hook it up to the internal display with a little solder work ;)

    weekend project, anyone?

    While you are at it, put a quad desktop mobo in an Apple II case, and I'll be the first on your doorstep.

    Right now I'm having the worst time deciding between a Mac Mini, with a shuffle and a new Nano (with the savings), or a MacBook Pro 13". I want a mac, haven't used one since System 9 was around. My last mac was a PowerPC clone, and I'm really dying to get away from the mess that is Vista and XP for my home setup.

    The reason that I want either a Macbook or Mini: 1) I already have a monitor and 2) I want some portability and the iMac is anything but portable when you have to drive 7 hours to your parents house for a visit and take your mac with you.

    Lol I'm currently making a website called "Which Mac is for you?". It's nowhere near finished though LOL. Do you need a big screen or not? MBP 13" is way 2 go if you have to take your Mac with you :D But if you'd like a big screen then either a Mini or a bigger screened MBP :rolleyes:

    My black MB is starting to die and I have started lusting after the 13" MBP. I think my comp knows because its even slower now...

    Well the thing is, I've already got a 22" flatpanel which has input for VGA, DVI and HDMI (BenQ). If I got the 13" MBP I could always plug it into the monitor...

    Yes I think the MacBook PRO might be a good idea there because you could plug it into the 22" screen when your at home and when you need to go to your parents house just take the Book on its own :D

    A brand new Unibody MacBook Pro ;)

    Believe it or not, I don't wish I had a Mac Pro. It's a desktop.

    I would like a fully loaded 17inch MBP with an LED Cinema display. A dream would be black aluminum casing.

    Aaah I've between waiting for one of these :D

    If it doesn't exist:

    Mac Pro7,1 Tri Intel Xeon Quad Core Processors @ 3.8GHz, 2.2GHz FSB, 24MB L4 Cache. 64GB DDR5 1600MHz ECC SDRAM, 2x GTX 320 2GB, Intel X25-M G2 320GB (Snow Leopard), Intel X25-M G2 160GB (Windows 7).
    (Overclockable by 50% :D)

    If it does exist:

    Mac Pro4,1 @ 2.93GHz, 32GB DDR3 1066MHz RAM, GTX 285 1GB, same SSD setup.

    And either way, one or three 30" screens :D...

    I might like a MBAir too :D and a MBP 17"

    I can't wait to see what's going to be next for the MP.
    Bit out of my budget though :eek:

    MacPro fully loaded + ACD 30"

    +

    MBP 13" + x25-m 160gb + 8gb ddr3



    But if I had to chose one, the MacPro. I'm not a "mobile" type of person. I'm a "gimme the octacore 16-thread nehalem + nvidia GTX285"-type of person.
