Thanks for the direct comparison. I must say the Tibook looks great!
It always turns out how good a design is, when you compare to a successor. I remember how ugly I thought the first Tibook looks like when I compared it to my Pismo.
Funny how attitudes change.

eBay...they pop up every now and again. little on the high side, I think I paid around $60 for each of those, but I was happy to pay the money for a quality cloth banner

with an apple ADC-to-DVI converter, $100..... the reason I did it was my crappy 15-inch monitor went out and I wanted someting bigger and better....plus it's kind of funny seeing XP on an Apple monitor

I like how Apple placed the slot optical drive near the bottom of the MacBook Pro body, with the 17" Al everytime I rest my hand on the laptopd body I can hear a sound, like it was flexing… annoying.

Wow, I didn't know the MBP could power the 30-inch....I was always under the impression that you had to have the $600 dual-DVI grapics card for the G5...Good to know

BTW...I hate you

Anyway awesome set up, im liking these macbook pros more and more by the minute!

Oh yes and mintcake those are some very tidy shots of the macbook! good work champ.

Someone asked to see how my Macbook Pro fits in my Booq PowerSleeve M, so since I took a few shots, thought I would post my setup here too.

Thanks Peter, that's useful, I like the look of that bag (it's like my old STM bag which won't fit the new MBP).

Also, nice set-up, it's quite similar to my own!

Thanks mintcake,

I loved your set up and your pictures. You are a great photographer. I like the STM bags. They have some style.

This was very helpful! I needed a new case since it wont fit in my old PB InCase sleeve. Picked one up for $64 shipped out of Austrilia though an eBay seller

I agree, totally, those pictures are really beautiful… I love the one with Link and that cute Animal Crossing thingy over the mini Even your glasses are cool… which brand? they are pretty similar to the ones Steve Jobs uses to wear

Heh, thanks. They're Air Titanium, I think they may indeed have been the same brand as Steve's, certainly I once saw them being worn by a Bond villain who was clearly modelled on the Stevester...

I am in the process of moving into my new house, and finishing putting the final touches on my old house for the wife to sell. Once I am settled in, I figured I have lurked in this thread long enough..... so I will finally contribute.... I only hope mine will measure up to some of the set-ups I have seen.
