New stuff, new setup picture
enjoy

edit: nifty thing about the universal dock is that i can plug any ipod i have into it and itll work. reduced so much desk clutter by just having the one i want at the time in there, and putting the rest in the desk. if you are wondering about the stickies on the wall, a blank wall = writers block. a wall with ideas on it = no more writers block got it from a movie, seems to help

Thank you! The box underneath the cable is Cinema HD Display Power Adapter. I would rather put it under the table, but the cable is too short to do this.

Maybe you could secure it underneath the desk somehow?

I don't see how it can cause any damage, it basically just snaps on. Looks ok to me.

So its absolutely tight and doesnt wobble in any way? I guess I was just concerned that it wasnt an absolute perfect/snug fit and that without pads in there it might nick up the case.

Video is very good, yet not perfect. expose is smooth, dashboard does not feel perfect, but it's difficult to notice any lag. everyday work is very smooth, except using Loupe tool in Aperture. everything else is just fine. someday I will get macbook pro, but now macbook is more than enough for me really.

I haven't noticed any scratches because of the case. There should not be any, because it does not move on the case. However, I'm not that picky about the scratches and they do not bother me.

Hi all. Long time lurker posting for the first time. Finally, after months of dithering i decided to replace my aging eMac.
Should i get an iMac or Macbook Well, after my first visit to the London Apple Store to see these in the flesh i fell in love with the Macbook. Then more dithering, brand new or refurb, Core Duo or Core 2 Duo
Decided on a refurbished Core Duo black from the online Apple Store for £699. Ordered on Sunday and it arrived two days later.





Bought a set of Cool Feet which are great. Would like to buy the Mare Ware protection kit i keep seeing in photos but can't find a stockist in the UK. Can anyone help?

I'd read on forums before about refurbished Macs coming with higher specs than those advertised. This came with 1GB instead of the advertised 512MB. It also came with a USB Modem and Mini-DVI to VGA adapter. Are these usually extra if you buy brand new?

The modem and adaptor are extras, they would cost you about £15 each I believe. I think you've got yourself a great deal there!

What speakers are those, and there is any chance of grabbing that Mondrian desktop from you?

Thanks!

You can download it from here. http://www.fototime.com/87174E94DBFD48E/orig.jpg
The speakers were from Argos (UK cataloge store). Cost about £14.00 and have the Wharfedale logo but i have seen the same style speakers elsewhere with a different logo.

That mouse has got to be about 5 years old.

Another thing i found out about this refurbished Macbook. Went to play a DVD today and it was set to Region 1 and not the default Region 2 that i was expecting. (I'm in the UK).
A pop-up window said i had 4 more resets so i set it to R2. Does this mean that it was reset to R1 by the original owner or could this be a US model?

Most likely means that the original owner was in the US, and set the region code to 1 when (s)he popped in the first DVD. I could be wrong, but I don't think it's possible to reset the region code once you use up your 5 times.

It is possible - you just have to reload the firmware for the drive.

how do you like those monitors? I've been looking to get a set, but haven't found to many people commenting on the quality.

I'm kind of stuck in the middle quality wise, I've got a set of m-audio monitors at home, and a set of Mackie HR-824s at work (and a set of JBL LSR6328P's in another room)... so I've been looking for a happy medium. (been looking at the v6s.)

I would adore to have that setup, infact I will try very hard to get something that looks as good as that. Work of art! And also, is that the mighty mouse and apple keyboard?

A nice expensive set up you have there 328iGuy with your Macbook Pro and iMac . Looks good, I've just started my dream set up a few days ago, by ordering some nice speakers for my desk... then to come the Macbook in august... then an external screen... =D. For those who are thinking "What the hell is he gonna use his speakers for if he has no macbook," have no fear, I have an iPod which I will use them with, so save your ranting please.

I love the soundsticks. (I've got the original soundsticks with the USB connector.) So far every copy of Windows XP finds them and uses them out of the box. (As does OSX of course!)

I've got to get myself some of those IKEA lights now. They will fit nicely in my work area as well.
