Altec Lansing FX6021. They are discontinued but you can probably still find a pair somewhere to buy.

Down in the basement I have a nice little diagnostics center.

Just picked up that acer 20" for 190 bucks, same native resolution as a cinema.


Best PC down there is a dimension 4300 with a 1.6 Ghz p4, I am going to pick up a dual 2.8 Xeon Precision for chump change one of these days.


Dual 2.0, 2Gb, 500Gb.
I miss the days of the G5 and XPS Pentium 4 running side by side as high-end machines.

Nice to see an old G5!

But you paid way too much for that Acer dude.

Maybe so, I pretty much roll with whatever newegg gives me.

I spent only 100 bucks on an acer a month ago, it's a 20" widescreen too, but the aspect ratio is just terrible, it's super wide, kind of pathetic.

Yeah 16:9 can be way too much scrolling on a smaller monitor. I don't like my 16:9 22" monitor when I'm editing video. It gets a bit cramped.

Yup, she runs great, no problems at all. I have the Apple display connector to VGA input, into the VGA input on the sony monitor, but no ADB mouse or keyboard, I guess I gotta get on ebay with like 15 bucks.

Not necessarily—some countries (like India) have half-hour offsets from the ‘regular’ countries. The top clock appears to be 35 minutes ahead, though, rather than 30.

Eizo goodness. You spare no expense, as it should be.

Is the webcam a Logitech?. We have the same mice. Do yourself a favor a get the diNovo Mac Edition keyboard.

Yep, it's the Logitech Quickcam Vision Pro - works fine, though it's not as good as the one in my MBP.

I'm loving the Eizo, but in some ways it's a step down from the 30" ACD:
- getting the bloody thing level if I've moved it around
- it wobbles when I type (partly a table issue, but it wasn't a problem with the ACD)
- it's not as easy to move it around so that it's pointing at the sofa (it gets used as a telly, too) - the ACD slid happily
- it's nowhere near as pretty
- the OSD interface is a shocker. It's nigh on impossible to be sure you're pressing the right button until you're up close, too - engraved black plastic is hard to read
- it's noisier than the ACD (gentle fan noise is still noise)
- it cost a heap

Absolutely everything else about it is beautiful, though. It's worth the heap it cost, and it's going to save me a heap of faff when it comes to having things printed. The picture quality is stunning.

Will go and have a play with the k/b you mentioned, but unless I can easily get a version with the American-style Enter key it'll have to wait for now (the UK k/bs have awful narrow things that I can't get used to).

Finally had a chance to take a shot of the setup at school! I drilled an iScrew (Eye-screw) into the ground and used a full sized master lock, and wrapped a bike cable around the Mac Pro for security.


Mac Pro and 2.6Ghz Macbook Pro

The dell display is a 30", it's pretty nice. Height adjustment, SD card slot, 4 USB ports, Dual DVI-D, VGA, Progressive Scan, 2 HDMI, and a DisplayPort. However, when I go back to my 20" ACD at home, whatever color spec that display has just looks better.
