    Re: What Mac have you got?

    Just got me a 24" 2.4GHz iMac and a black MacBook! Well just before Christmas, anyway.

    Taken them both up to 2GB of DDR2 and upgraded both to Leopard too, although the iMac has Vista installed as well using Boot Camp.

    Really must update my signature!

    Re: What Mac have you got?

    My setup has changed quite a bit in the last week or two.

    Firstly I've replaced my Apple Macbook Pro with a newer model. I'd had the old one for 2 years so it was time for an upgrade. The new one is one of the latest penryn ones with an LED screen. Its a great little machine.

    Here's a pic of the swap over happening:



    I've also treated myself to a griffin elevator and a new apple keyboard. The griffin elevator really helps my neck and the apple keyboard is great to type on. The last purchase was an apple iPhone as the £100 off offer was just too tempting!

    Here is a shot of it all in place:



    Also in shot is my HP all in one printer, sony lcd tv logitech mx revolution mouse and netgear wireless N router.

    No, it was taken by a pro. They used have a small gallery opposite where I lived. There were lots of panoramic shots like that one. But the bridge one was the only choice for me!

    Re: What Mac have you got?

    I currently have a 15-inch MacBook Pro (2.2GHz Santa Rosa version).

    I brought it last September before uni (with 15% discount, £58 Applecare upgrade and £85 off my 160GB iPod Classic) and it's a great machine.

    I also have a PowerMac G4 Cube with 17" LCD Studio display, which unfortunately doesn't get much use nowadays.

    Before that, I had a PowerBook G4 (15" 1.33GHz) and iMac G3 DV 400MHz in grape!

    Re: What Mac have you got?

    My current setup:



    These two are attached to the iMac offering 2TB of external storage,



    The MBP is currently keeping the printer company elsewhere in my flat. It shares the printer over WiFi.

    Re: What Mac have you got?

    Mike wouldn't it be cheaper to get a wifi printer or airport base station? Seems expensive to have a mbp just for a printer

    How's the iMac with dual screens, I've got a iMac here at the moment and its a tasty machine. Worked out reasonably priced after quidco and pcworld pricing cock up

    Re: What Mac have you got?

    Gordy, ha! The MBP goes on printer duty when I'm in, but gets a full work out when I'm in the lab. I should be setting up my IDE shortly though and will be using the laptop a fair bit as I have some development to complete for my project.

    Mine is an older 2.8 extreme mind you, so I'm not sure if it has *the* latest specs in terms of video output, but, the dual screen setup has been running great. I can move 720p clips across the displays seamlessly and even 1080p clips don't seem to mind this.

    I tend to have two firefox windows on both displays at any given time; this way I can enjoy the best of portrait and landscape layouts...
