    I have mine, really. MacBook Pro with lots of RAM, Logitech VX Revolution, decent monitor, 1TB of external hard drives, and good sounding speakers.

    I dont know what mine is.

    At the moment, I'm saving indefinitely for a new Mac, but I don't want one of the current line up. Guess we'll have to see what Sir Steve gives us in the next year.

    I'd love a base Mac Pro with 8gb ram with a pair of nvidia 9800gx2's, a 30" cinema display and a macbook air.

    because liking macs must mean you should hate all things PC-ish, even if they'd otherwise be cool. right?

    no, because they look like the regular mouse and keyboard you get with a pc.. If there was a keyboard for pc that i like i wouldn't say this. Like the optimus maximus (i know it's also avaible for mac).

    I'd love a 2.4GHz 15" MBP with 4GB RAM and no iSight.

    Also, an iPhone.

    And an Air to swat people over the head with.

    And a 23" ACD.

    And a computer exactly like Lord Blackadder's.

    I love how it proudly highlights the "free shipping". For 19K I'd expect dancing girls as well. :)

    I believe my dream setup would be similar to this:

    [​IMG]

    Five 30" ACDs on his desk, and 12 30" Dells on the wall. Of course he's running Windows on everything, which is lame...I'd have to have the uber Mac-Pro at the desk.

    My dream setup would be a 24" iMac at home all specced out and an Air on the road, with the SSD.

    I'm starting to place some of my income aside to build up a nice budget to get my dream setup.

    Current setup is 24" Al iMac base with 4GB ram, and a PB G4 on the road.

    By the end of the year my setup will be Mac Pro 3.0Ghz, 4-8GB, 1TB in one HDD sled, with backups in the others that will come later, NVIDIA 8800GT, and, to start out, 1 30" ACD, which will be accompanied by another in the future.

    [​IMG]

    The RAM upgrade will come after purchase.

    Then for the road I'm looking at a 1.8 MBA without the SSD, no use - too expensive for such a non-powerhouse-of-a-computer.

    iMac 24" with everything top notch. (But with a REAL GPU)
    MacBook Air (1.8 SSD model)
    iPhone 3G 16GB

    13.1" MacBook Pro 4GB/200GB@7200rpm/6h battery life capable of driving 30" ACD. That's well enough for me.

    You could save money on your dream system by making a few compromises. Instead of ordering iWork, try using neo office, which is a free office suite. That should bring the price down to a more reasonable level.

    ;);):D

    But Neo office is so slow (probably not on that machine)
    And do not understand me wrong, i'm not going to buy this.

    A 20" iMac will do me, I don't mind which one (although the higher spec one is preferable).

    I just love that machine to bits, and having used Logic on my friend's 24" WhiMac the other day, I want a desktop more than anything at the moment...
