You can mitigate it somewhat with fsb settings, but not cure it completely. Other than that, it's quite stable and runs really well. Oh, and AIFF sounds crackle and pop (probably due to the timing issue). The default wireless doesn't work out of the box either, but I popped in the 802.11 mini pci-e card from my appletv, and it seems to work just fine.
Nifty. Gonna try putting Leopard on?

Rotate desk chair 90 degrees clockwise, and your facing this.



While my PC is great for storage and gaming, I hook this baby up into the 2nd DVI port of my display and use it with Photoshop and Pro Tools, I use my Roland V pro drum kit with it and mix for fun.

Nothing too special here, but I'm thrilled at finally having a permanent dual-monitor setup. That, and the mStand + 500GB MyBook for Time Machine. I'm lovin' this setup.

My one wish is that I'd gotten the wired Apple keyboard instead --- I do miss the extra keys.

Additional notable goodies: 320GB internal to the MBP, iPhone in my pocket, Canon Rebel XSi in the other room.

That's a great setup. It's what I'd like to have one day (ideally).

How do you like the XSi? I have an XTi that I love, and I'm curious about the new model. I'd imagine that Liveview comes in handy.

Thanks.

I also have an XTi as my personal camera at home... The XSi belongs to work.

The XSi is an excellent camera, and has a few nice upgrades from the XTi (especially the new kit lens -- very sharp, and IS is awesome).

However, if you have an XTi already, it's not worth upgrading your body to this model. Spend the money on a new lens, or a plane ticket to somewhere where you can take gorgeous pictures with what you have.

Regarding LiveView -- it's a neat technology, but I'm not finding it terribly useful for many applications... focusing is a pain since you either have to actuate the mirror or use contrast-detect mode, which is *slow*.

Ahh, good to know. Thanks for that info! I love my XTi. I was on a tight budget so when I bought it a just bought the body with the new "kit" lens. It suits my needs just fine. I do need more opportunities to use it though.

My trusty old PowerBook G4's Video RAM finally fried, so I went refurbished and picked up a stock 20" iMac and a last-rev MacBook Pro. I love having two computers, it's a refreshing change from docking and undocking the laptop constantly.

Do you have a KVM switch on the keyboard/ mouse?

No, I use the two computers separately. I have ARD for when I need to login to the iMac from the MBP to get files.

Here's mine:



That's a MacBook with a Samsung display hooked up to a Happy Hacking Keyboard Professional 2 and a Razer Copperhead mouse. There also is a Maxtor 200 GB HDD against the right wall and an HP printer underneath the desk on the right side.

Other than that, there are 5 Buddhas, one Grim Reaper and a mint condition first gen Yoda.

I stopped playing PC games like 3 months ago, I sold my PC.





Dual 2.6, 4GB, 200GB (7200RPM).

The Externals are: 500GB (Esata), 320GB (FW800), 320GB (FW400)
The Shoe box holds a rats nest of wires.
The 20" was from when I sold my PowerMac, so it was just sitting around, it's not a 22", but has a higher resolution, much better colors, and is way more evenly backlit than the Samsung,

I can't decide if I should just not use the 20" and just have the laptop, it would make it a lot simpler, I suppose. Thoughts?

I just figure since I can't twinview with it (desk is just too small), and since the cinema is only a bit bigger than the MBP's display... I have decided to keep it the way it is, I would like my view to be as tall as possible.

You could always set your laptop up in front of you, as your primary display, and then VESA-mount your 20" above it on the wall. That'd save some space.

I wish, those things are damn expensive, perhaps I could just make a wooden shelf and set it on top of that.

I had figured that you were referring to big articulating arm mounts, and was about to reply to this that simple flush VESA mounts are only $15 or so, but then I remembered that we're talking about Apple Cinema Displays, which I forgot requires that extra $30 adapter.

Phooey.

Not too bad. If you have it setup to mirror screens, you lose some resolution. However, if you set it up for dual screens as I do for web development, then the resolution is not that bad. It is amazingly clear for watching youtube and dvds from the macbook. The dell would probably handle it better and will later this week when we move into our house.
