Let me see your Mac!

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks:

 

I've been meaning to post "my rig" for a while.

 

Here goes:

I thought posting pics of people mac setups was a great idea. It's a common thing to do for musicians online.

This is my little set up in the livingroom. The monitor is also a TV so you can use the internet while watching TV with the picture in picture (although I rarely do that anymore). The sound comes out of some old Bose bookshelf speakers, so anything we play on iTunes sounds pretty good.

This is the used eMac in the playroom for the kiddies. Great machine, actually.

My husband has a white MacBook, but he just keeps it in a case, so there's not much to see there.

I've just added a new toy to my desk setup (I would show you a picture of my networking gear cupboard, but it's embarrassing - too many ethernet cables that aren't tidied away!)

 

On here we've got a WD My Book 500Gb for Time Machine, a LaCie 250Gb with a bootable clone, a set of Altec Lansing speakers (can't tell you the model number, but they sound rather lovely), a 24" Samsung monitor, my iPhone and of course, my MacBook Pro (called Ares) - 2.4Ghz, 4Gb ram, 160Gb HD sat on my iLap (which is also useful for preserving my ability to have children when I use my laptop on my lap. Top.).

It's a Samsung SM245B. I got it from ebuyer and it's a touch under £300 with all the delivery and VAT and whatnot.

Took a little playing with to get the colours sorted out, but now I've got it sorted it's fantastic for the price. Seems to be the cheapest (decent) 24" monitor at the moment.

Thanks for that :-) Have had a look and all seems good, I was put off slightly with the "earlier" SyncMaster Screen types but this seems to be solved.

 

Would be great to hear your thoughts after a few days of use but I may cave in and order one ;-)

 

Cheers
