The CRT is from my powermac. I haven't decided to sell it or use it as a dual monitor setup... Alernatively, I could sell it and buy an lcd. I think I might end up doing that, along with some noncrappy looking speakers.

I was wondering if anyone has iskin for their macbooks? I just ordered a black one for the blackbook that I carry around with me. And I also bought a black iskin for the apple bluetooth keyboard that is used for the blackbook that is in my cabinet attached to the monitor. Here is a link for the products

I know I was planning on waiting till October to get the new core 2 duo but my tech friend said that its very easy to put the new system in so I should go ahead and get them now as he doesn't see any new upgrades to the macbook before then. So that is what I did...

I use an iMate adapter, they still will run you about 30. A good way to get these things for cheep (all old Mac stuff) is to call your local newspaper and talk to the IT guys. At the one I work at, they have stacks of stuff they practically give away.

The keyboard works great - all the buttons work in OS X and XP Pro on my MacBook.

I got a new keyboard that is older than my last one!

Do you like it?

This pic was taken before I cleaned up the paint.

I rearranged my set up again, and I got a shiny new 19 year old IBM Model M keyboard.



And here is a link to my Flickr page for more pictures and annotations.

It draws power from USB like all keyboards do, or if you want to be particular about it, through the PS/2 to USB adapter.

oh, I just heard from several sources that it draws more power the adaptor can provide or something.

I was inspired by all these Mac setup threads I've been seeing on forums, so I created My Mac Desk - Home . Hopefully we'll have quite a collection there in a while. (Submit if you want.)

I love these Apple computer setups. Mac people are always so pedantic.

I wish... The screen didn't show up well so I just photoshopped that on. The computer REALLY runs OS X 10.4.10.

I don't know if it's your desk or what, but for whatever reason, I really LIKE that white MB. I have a balck one, and almost always think the white ones are odd looking, but that looks good.

Thanks! It's funny, I always thought Blackbooks looked odd, since they aren't glossy.

Hmm, now it makes me confused about which colour I should get it in! Ever since right this minute i've thought "Yeh, lets go for a black one" but that white looks mighty sexy. Helpp!

Did you hack OS X onto that thinkpad, or is that a screenshot? (Or Linux or Windows running an Aqua theme?)

*I* didn't hack anything. *Somebody*, however, did get a hacked version of OS X onto the ThinkPad pictured above, and I daresay it worked pretty well, though the machine did get a bit warm at times. Well, until Apple gets around to making its own ultraportables, the rest of us will have to settle for XP or whatnot..

My new MB arrived this afternoon (2.16ghz, Superdrive, all that jazz):

And Gelaskin.

I'm thrilled with the machine. It's exactly what I need in a laptop: light(ish), small(ish), and fastfast!
