It is a shame, but sometimes hard when you do not have a place to hide them. Leonis, that's an awesome setup, try Xgriding the two together sometime.

I don't have soundstick. The subwoofer is the Chinese clone of the iSub. This is a complete set with two speaker just looks like Apple's Pro Speaker with the iSub like subwoofer. Sounds okay and it's cheap (70 CAD)



The TDK speaker is not bad. I have had it for over 4 years and still working great.

I dreamed for years of being able to post here. I finally can.

2GHz DC with Apple 20" monitor, iSight, Wacom Graphire 4 6x9 and Logitech Z-5300e. The desk is a $150 Ashley from Homemakers furniture.

Note the center speakers tucks perfectly in the well of the monitor's stand. I was very greatful for that. It spared me having to do wall mounting.



Before this setup, I was on an iBook 14" 933MHz from 2003 to 2005. I cannot believe how fast this machine is. I thought the iBook was fast. Just...wow. Before that it was a 400MHz iMac DV SE from 2000 to 2003, which felt really fast at the time. I love progress.

Yeah, it was on promotion here in Australia. Roughly at the same price as a 23" Apple or thereabouts.

REALL!? Where the hell was I!? I would have went out there and broght one no worries! even though I havent brought my PowerMac yet I would still go get a quality LCD! Although I will have a look at them and see how they go compared to the Apple Cinema Displays. I haven't brought a PowerMac yet due to all the hype around the MacBook and everyone saying the MacBook will be just as good as the current PowerBooks...I just don't want to have a desk top if i can buy a lapbook for less money that is just as good.

Prints on the wall by myself. Lack of my 15" PowerBook though, as that lives in a bag, and if it's ever on the desk it just perches ontop of the scanner or printer.
Love my G5.

[EDIT: Oh, the G5 is under the desk if you were wondering, along with a subwoofer and six miles of cabling]

Alright...

To put this easy, I’m sick and tired of Windows based computers. Have had the same Dell for little less than two years and have had nothing but problems. Even after sending it back to Dell five times.

I am planning on ordering a Powermac VERRRY soon… but I need to know, should I wait to see the next edition of the Powermac? Has anyone heard any leaks of possible specs for the new Powermacs (if that’s what they’ll be calling it).

I can't stand using this Dell. Never runs right, takes 16 seconds just to load iTunes. I’m running an Inspiron 9100 P4 3.2 w/ HT, 1 GB ram, ATI Mobility Radeon 9700. Alwaysss over heating and lately has been taking forever to boot up (I reboot a lot because the screen goes nuts after no activity!)

Thanks for your help!

There will always be "the next best thing," so what are you waitin' for? There are plenty of good G5 deals right now and on the horizon. If you want one, buy it now. The G5 is a very fine piece of machinery that will give you years of good service with proper care. I was in the same situation and decided to go ahead with the G5. I can promise you it was the right decision. And thanks for the advice to the posters here.

Cheers.

Thanks for the compliments =) Yeah, it's called the icurve.

Kenneth, I love my MDD as well. I bought it originally as an audio production machine, but have since moved into a commercial studio. With that, my MDD became my office/home machine which is MORE than powerful enough for that. Not to mention, the 23" is lovely.

No need to apology… the picture got a nice effect, look at the front side of your Power Mac G5, the bunch of holes are almost imperceptible, would love the Power Macs G5 were like yours looks in the picture

Yep, when I was in the market for a tower last November, I was tempted to wait until the next year to get an Intel tower, but I realized that all my favorite software was already on my ibook in PPC native format. I realized I had no reason to upgrade anything for a year or more, and that universal binaries would probably be around for almost 3 years, so why not stick with PPC for one more revision?

I got the DC2GHz and have not regretted it a single second. I don't care how much faster the intel versions may be when they come out (with Adobe lagging into 2007?). Compared to my 933mhz laptop, I'm in computing heaven and will be for years to come.

Thanks for all the great comments guys.

Yes, its a Radium-61 MIDI keyboard and connects with my PowerMac via USB. It's just as simple as installing the drivers, along with a quick restart to get Garageband to recognize it.

When you say 'prop', I assume you mean posting onto the Internet. I haven't put my songs on the internet, so far, I've just been burning them onto CD's and distrubuting them to my friends.
I'm not into anything serious here, music is just one of my hobbies.
EDIT: Woops, I see what you mean. The stand for my music is just a regular bookstand, I got it from my local bookshop.


As to organizing my clutter, I normally don't have the MIDI keyboard on my desk, so it is way less messy than what you see in the picture.

Oh, and here are the specs for those who are interested:

PowerMac G5 Dual-core 2.3ghz
-1.5 gb RAM
-256VRAM on a nVidia 6600
-250gb HD

20" Apple Cinema Display

M-Audio Radium-61 MIDI Keyboard

Apple Wired Keyboard, and Razer Pro Mouse 1.6 (Now, with ProPad- not pictured)

Harmon/Kardon Soundsticks II

IKEA Galant Table, with two IKEA lamps.


Again, thanks for all the great comments, really appreciate them

My TV setup isn't pictured, but the DVD Player/Reciever just run my stereo and other things related. I like to keep them out of the way, so I put them under the desk.

And in regards to the "deck of ipods", keep in mind I used to work for apple. And considering the troublesome nature of the 4G 40GB and 3G battery, I sort of went through them. I liked to keep my old dead ones to use as paper weights, heh.
