    What's your dream computer set up?
    * (Within reason and within reach of today's technology).

    Already have your dream set up, photo's welcome!


    I'm getting very near my dream set up, it consists of:

    Mac Pro w/ ACD - office
    15" MBP - home office / den
    13" MBP - travel (used to be a MBA)
    iPad 3G

    I had mine once - but sold it to get my business off the ground (now saving hard to get it back).

    But this is it:

    iPad 3G 32GB ~ for the car
    iMac 27 i5 8GB + 2nd LCD Screen ~ for my 'office' (ok bedroom)
    Mac Mini 4GB 2.26 ~ for the lounge (on the TV)
    FW800 2x2TB RE4GP Drives (JBOD) ~ hooked up to the mac mini as backups
    FW800 2x2TB RE4GP Drives RAID1 ~ on the iMac (for work and TC)
    Adobe CS5 Design Premium (Student ed) on the iMac (I have everything else)

    That would suit me perfect

    (Used to use a Mac Pro 2008, 8x2.8 18GB 30" LCD 4xSAS + NAS Box with 3TB RAID5 and a mac mini coreDuo on the TV with a 13" MBP for mobility)

    Currently on the Powermac G4 (and the two PC's I am selling to help fund the iMac).

    Black MacBook (to replace my current 2.4 black MacBook. Apple damn well better make black ones again)

    I think I'm pretty much there with what I've got in my signature. It would be nice to get a bigger ACD when those become available. But I'm pretty happy here.

    Nice!

    Do you use your 15" MBP as your mobile machine?

    -Maxed out Macbook Pro, either 13 or 15".
    -Insanely high-end home built PC. Only I'm not sure what the best of the best is these days! Last time it was a 4870x2, so I should get back into it :D. Single display, Apple keyboard, Razer mouse, iPod touch (next gen one).

    - Mac Pro with this 1TB 1.4GB/s SSD, 30" ACD, 17" Macbook Pro, iPad, and the new iPhone, all maxed out.

    Maybe a maxed out iMac and a gaming PC instead of a Mac Pro.

    As soon as I win the lottery.

    Any day now.

    Yes, seriously Apple.

    My dream setup:
    - Mac Pro with triple >=24" monitors on a nice mounting system, this will handle my heavy lifting
    - Mac Mini as a media station
    - 15" Macbook Pro, i7 for on-the-go power
    - as lee said, a black Macbook with current tech standards for classes, presentations, travel, etc.
