    i noticed that there were a lot of if your 18 & under post your setup, but there weren't any for those of us who are in college. So I am curious what all of the other college students desk setups look like.

    So if your in college post a pic of your desk and computer(s). It can be as is or you can tidy it up for the picture. Maybe we can get something big started here. Anyways have fun with it.

    Here's a pic of my current setup in my apartment that I moved into a week ago. I am getting the 24" LED Cinema Display this afternoon so I will post another pic after I get it and set it up.

    Cheers!

    Yeah it is the McMurry book, the one with the white and green cover. LOL Yeah the subject is fun and I love learning about it, but my professor really sucks. I pretty much have to teach myself. LOL

    OMG McMurry!
    I have that same text book! What are you taking in order for you to be in that class -- obviously its an Organic Chem class, lol.
    Hoe do you like the book -- I find its pretty easy to read, well the last chapters (25, 26 etc).

    BTW, nice set-up :)

    What's the keyboard you're using there, and how do you like it?

    -2 x Palit GTX 295's @ 601MHz-core, 2100MHz-memory, 1300MHz-Shader. Heat shroud removed from the upper card to improve airflow (it worked , now it's a wall ornament.

    It's a Logitech MediaBoard for PS3/PC.





    It's garbage. I'm using it because I'm getting frustrated with the connection dropping issues I have with my Apple Bluetooth keyboard on my PC. :p If you still want a similar style keyboard as the MediaBoard, get the Pro version. It's decently made, doesn't have clickity-clack keys, etc. Honestly, the non-Pro MediaBoard bends when you type on it. The keys are wafer thin and are extremely loud. But it has zero lag and a built-in touchpad so it's not a bad idea for a HTPC solution. Plus it's only about $20! Note that the non-Pro version is non-Bluetooth and comes with its own dongle. The Pro version IS Bluetooth but doesn't come with its own dongle (since PS3s already have BT) so you'll have to have BT on whatever computer you want to use it with. I'm not sure if it works with Macs, unfortunately.

    Already posted this in the setup thread but I thought it was more appropriate here. Hopefully I'll be moving to an apartment next year.

    Hey, I used McMurry too! I liked the book a lot, and it had the best looking cover out of all of my textbooks. My setup is PC-only for now, until I bring my iMac G3 up to school.
