    Next time I'm in OSX I'll fish out my college setup. College was 5 years ago for me but I had-

    14" IBM Thinkpad something-or-other
    3G iPod 15gb (lots of travelling)
    Some Toshiba Pocket PC
    Tiny VGA camera
    Siemens M55 phone
    GBA (since I did design and wrote an awful lot about games and gameplay)

    Uni was a better setup. Still using it now!

    I'll post a picture later, but:
    I'm just finishing my freshman year (last two finals were this morning, I don't remember the last time I woke up at 7:30 :cool:).

    I've got a MBP that should last me through college and an iPhone (it's great, especially in the city to be able to just carry around one device). I also have an iPod nano as my iPod that I beat up on (ie, gym, running, going to sleep).

    EDIT: Oops, forgot the Time Capsule in my closet that I use for wireless internet, time machine, file storage, and streaming video.

    Mind you I live at home in a room that is 7' x 8' in which I share. In that room I sleep on the top bunk which gives me a lot of space to work. Oh yeah, I'm a college student...

    I love this space.

    ...and yes, that is my bed.

    When I went to college there were no PCs to take. I graduated from HS in 1975. I first learned about computers on a Olivetti word processor. They were big and heavy but correcting your typing errors before you printed was a great thing. Before that there were IBM procesing cards and very big mainframes which only companies had, not school kids. It was another 5 or 10 years before I saw my first cell phones and they were huge, mostly in cars. I did have a very small B/W TV and that was more that a lot of kids had at the time.

    The Olivetti looked like this.

    The Canadians, too. I'm pretty sure in all the former British colonies, "college" is normally a lower-form of education than university.

    I'm also pretty sure that Victoria College (just the name of a smaller part of U of T, basically just where I live) at the University of Toronto has the worst dorm rooms/dorm furniture ever!

    Goddamn.

    Three pictures here; the first one is my first room setup, second is my post-Thanksgiving room setup (in a badly-stitched panorama), and third is my desk setup (which stayed the same the entire time).
