    Just for fun lets speculate what kind of mac Jobs uses on a day to day basis!

    i bet its a macbook air somehow configued with his own custom everthing with like a 1TB solid state drive that has 64 gibs of ram and he more than likely runs beta versions of every app that comes in iLife that he will improve and then release to his team that will fix the minor bugs and then they will set a public release date!

    a custom built Dual Mac Pro side by side with 3 displays

    if apple released a 27 inch Retina display, wait, they wont, cause it wont work since you wont see anything on the screen since its crisp sharp

    Are those pics recent? Plus this seems to be his home set up.

    All the hardware that we spend loads of cash on he would just pick up the phone and say "Bring it".

    What the hell... that screen is enourmous xD but yeah, looks like a Mac Pro under that desk. I thought people said he was all about minimalism hahaha.
    But I guess his needs doesn't have to match that of the masses... he just knows the business.

    Nice pics :)

    Here's one more... he sure has come a long way :D

    That's pretty much what you would think he would have.

    He does sort of seem like a Hippie doesn't he :D (that term is so old it looks weird)

    Believe it or not, a simple Mac Pro and an occasional MBA here and there are all he needs. If you think about his day as a CEO, he doesn't really need a lot of power to get his daily work done so those pictures are actually how I pictured his office to be like. The beefy question is, what computers do his engineers use. Those are powerful enough to cause tsunamis. :D

    But I won't be surprised if Steve has a lair where he spends one of his rare free days to do some crazy programming and experimental stuff, most probably back in his healthy days. Hang in there, Steve!!!

    I just realized he has Genelec speakers (very nice) and wears Keens (fantastic shoe/sandals).

    Also, what is that tiny MacPro looking device to the right of the Genelec speaker in the bottom picture?

    I knew it was most likely an external hard drive enclosure but which one? There are plenty out there to make it hard to identify.

    I doubt you will find this available out there. This is definitely custom made for Apple use. You might find something similar looking on the outside (think China Town). But who knows really what's inside that tiny box. ;)

    Those pictures are really old. The most recent photos show him using an Air, which he has declared is the future of Mac computing. Can't imagine Apple making an ultra thin 17" dual core laptop, but you never know.
