The original Power Mac Picture Thread, over its four year reign, has grown to 32 pages and is easily the number one thread in the entirity of the Power Mac forum. However, to all things there is an end.

The disadvantage to having a four year old thread that revolves around picture linking is that, well... people don't keep servers forever. It is becoming increasingly rare to have all pictures load before page 25 and next to impossible to find any that will load the further back you go towards page 1. All this does is cause annoying load hangs.

So, welcome to 'The New Power Mac Picture Thread'. I've taken the liberty of making this itteration of the Power Mac Picture Thread a sticky, so that it resides at the top of the forum listing.

For those of you stumbling across this thread who weren't around for the original 32 pager and would like to peek around it, you can find it here.

Now, on with the show:

My newly aquired Power Mac G4 Cube with 15" Display and Soundsticks/iSub. I got the cube from a friend in exchange for an Aopen XC18 Cube (a PC). I found the display through a classified ad. It had a broken back leg, but this was easily fixed. The speakers are from ebay and the keyboard will be exchanged for a pro keyboard soon. This is more of an "I build my own computer museum" project.



Cube specs: G4 450MHz, 1GB SDRAM, 80GB HDD, DVD-ROM, AirPort. A very nice system, although I think (oh, blasphemy ;-) my mini + 20" + JBL Creatures is more elegant (and more powerful, of course). The acrylic gives the whole ensemble a very 1970's touch.

These are ridiculously nice setups. I think it's time for a little MacNN socialist revolution & computer-wealth redistribution.

Hanul, that's an extremely beautiful looking retro setup. It's not a G5, but damn - very nice.

Personally I am expecting a third hand used Sawtooth next week for mainly server tasks. It'll not be in the class of a Cube visually speaking, but probably a useful stationary sidekick for my PB (I hope). Perhaps I should post a picture if the machine survive the transport. It'll be my first PM.

Heh, my Sawtooth will be 5 years old on March 22, so don't come here! What you need to do is redistribute the wealth from your boss to your pocket.

New pic to come soon.

It's an old trusty IntelliMouse Explorer that have served me well in many years. You can even tell it's old because the "Microsoft" logo is teared so far down it only has three letters left; "Mic". (I like it even better now.)

Also in the picture (besides that CRT), a FW backup drive and a book that have the title "Algorithmics" on it. Nice to chew on when I am really bored. Impressive signature BTW.

I love this thread.

I finally got to making a new QuickTime VR of my current computer setup. I've placed it on-line here:

http://www.bytecellar.com/qtvr.html

Have a look. 30 shots taken with an Apple QuickTake 200 (vintage in its own right!) were used and stitched together w/ Apple's QTVR Studio v1.0. Enjoy.

Other shots of this setup can be found (at the bottom of):

http://www.blakespot.com/list

...of those pics, my G5 setup pic is:







Let me know what you think of the QuickTime VR (link above). Cheers!

Nice job with the QTVR. Seemless.

What kind of desk do you have your Cinema displays on, BTW?? Where'd you get it? I'm looking for something like that - big, clean and simple.

Thanks! Not quite seamless...but then it's v1.0 of Apple's QuickTime VR Studio, circa OS 8.x. I wish they'd update that under OS X.

The desk is a "conference table" from Storehouse (storehouse.com), but I've never seen it on their site. I think the desk + legs were $300 or so. It's 6' wide - a good foot wider than most desks. The desks that the older machines are on are all from IKEA.

blakespot, where did you get that little cart that you have your g5 on? I've been looking for something that will let me keep my g5 under the desk but still up off the floor. The wheels are perfect for pulling that beast out from under there.

Yep, it's a MacMice cart. Even though the owner of that company is arguably insane, I ordered and got it. Works well. Not sure of the current availability...

Great setup. I've been looking for a larger desk, what kind of desk do you have and where did you get it?

Thanks,

It's cubicle furniture from Bush Furniture Online. It's nice because it's all modular so you can fit it in to your space. It's heavy though.

I love these photos. One can really never get enough of people's setups. I read these threads, on several forums.

Usually, the setups are one or the other:

1) The beautiful setups that I envy
2) Beautiful setups, but a little messy, which makes me feel a little bit better about mine.

My desk never seems messy to me, everything is tidy in its place, but when I take a photo it looks messy. argh!

Hell, yeah! That was the most expensive tower ever made, right? I think the only higher-dollar Mac had to have been the TAM.

I had a 950 for a while, that I got extremely used (in 1998, I think) for a couple hundred. It was a beast.

[dr.evilvoice] Riiiight! [/dr.evilvoice] In Germany it sold for about 20.000 DM (about 10.000 Euro) in its basic version. Putting in some additional drives, RAM and some cards you ended up with 15.000-20.000 Euro. I got this beast for one on ebay some weeks ago. Two drives were installed and contained the whole graphics/preprint software from the mid-nineties. It came from a pre-press department of a big print office near Frankfurt.
