What kind of chairs does everyone have? I am looking to buy a new one because the one I have is not very comfortable. Looking to spend around $100-$200.

Do you mean the Herman Miller Aeron chair?

They are quite expensive - but there is a more affordable model which is as aesthetically pleasing as the big $$$ one.

I've got one of those at work. Ugly as sin but VERY VERY comfortable. They are also the first chair that keeps my ass from sweating.

I snagged mine for 600 on Craigslist, the fully adjustable model. It's really nice, but I need a new backrest for it. That and it's destroying my floor (nothing but plaster... college apartment).

Might go with this one: Staples.com. that was easy.

Tried it out at Staples and it looks pretty nice and has good cushioning.

I would have liked an EyeTV device too, as the TVMini is really nice to use. However, I wasn't going to spend an extra £70 (EyeTV Hybrid) - £115 (EyeTV 250) just to play Gamecube games; the console itself only cost me £40, so £24 is already a lot in comparison.

not really my setup, but my new hottness and my old not as hotness.

I was going to buy a Core Duo BlackBook for $1199, but for $200 more (with edu discount) I think the C2D was a pretty good deal.

So much faster than the G4 800.

Honestly, I don't remember. I bought it so long ago from Staples I think? But it prob will be very hard to find the same one now since its over several years old.

Ugly as sin?

I guess that is a matter of personal taste. It is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art, you know? Sorry, I couldn't resist - I work for Herman Miller!

No worries.

I love the chair ... as a matter of taste I don't like the way it looks. To be fair, I doubt I'd like much in the museum of modern art. :-)

But I wouldn't trade the chair for anything.

(Now if you can make one that works that well and looks good with a south asian decor ... :-)

How did you hook up the DX4 monitors to your MBP? I'm thinking of getting them for my PowerBook G4. Does the included RCA-to-mini jack plug right into the headphone port on the laptop?

thanks very much,

the speakers are panasonic and they are connected to my hifi (under the desk). i then have phono cables running into an aiport express. thats how they play my itunes. im looking for some speakers to plug into my macbook so that i can play things like dvd's with a bit of volume.

the kasabian cd's are displayed using a thing i won off ebay. if you want ill pm you the sellers id. they were only £5 ($9-10). they are quite annoying the set up, but well worth it in the long run.

the other cd holder is from my local argos - unfortunatly i dont have a model code or anything.

Samsung 940MW (widescreen + tv tuner + component in + HD) mounted on an LCD arm for more desk space.

Ok, here's my set up just after I recieved my new 2.33 C2D Macbook Pro. In the picture is the Macbook Pro, a 20" ACD, a 1.25 G4 iMac and some Harman Kardon Soundsticks. Hopefully once my wireless adapter comes I can move the iMac downstairs for my parents to use, as at the moment it's a little crowded upstairs.



Sorry about the poor quality, the photo was taken with my phone.

Nice setup.

I like way you set the wallpapers on all your devices to have the same look and color scheme, and arranged them according to device case color.

You inspired me to re-arrange my setup and finally cleanup my desk
