    Still getting everything setup, but so far this thing rocks.

    15" Powerbook G4
    1.67Ghz
    1GB RAM (Picked up a second 512MB stick)
    100GB HDD
    Superdrive

    Charging a new Logitech MX900 mouse to use with it right now.

    Maybe some pics later tonight...

    You're not going to convince Fazle to trash all the hardware he's bought for an Xserve, but at least OT is run on FreeBSD. :big grin:

    Hrmm... I bought a Logitech MX900 but most of the buttons aren't working. I've got to figure this out.... The Apple wireless keyboard I picked up works great though. :big grin:

    Nope. Nobody has ever convinced me of a reason to drop $1,000 on a monitor for personal use, much less $3,000.

    The $900 ACD monitor is a stretch, but worth every penny. Anything bigger then that is really just a waste of funds IMO.

    I take back everything I ever suggested about buying a Dell 24" LCD over 20" ACD. It looks like horseshit compared to my ACD. Look at this crap. :ugh:
