Since mysticmerlin has some problem starting, i'm going first

The machine is a PB 15", you might not see it here but my friends say that my room looks like an apple showroom :)
I'm planning to change the screen to a dell 20" and add a mini as a server for my music and video.

edit : smaller and better quality pic

This is my little set up

http://lukezeller.com/27.jpg (can't be bothered to resize and its a tad large to just be posting...

Basically
15" PB (1.67 G4)
20" Display
Apple BT Keyboard
Logitech Mx900 (One button mice are retarded)
Fatal1ty pad, Fatal1ty branded stuff does get a lot of crap and I agree with most of it but this really is a godly mousepad for fps's. I dont have as much use for it anymore since I rarely play fps's on my mac but its still pretty hot.
20 gig iPod photo (This is the only thing thats really changed I got a 30gig black video).

Thats my desk. Only difference really is that it is on a different desk in california now cause I go to school out here. I want one of the new PB's so bad....

No how-to but VERY easy to explain. And of course it would work on a bronze PB.

On a PB it may even be easier to do than on my MBP. U just need to take out the bottom two screws on the display housing and then start popping the clips around the edges that hold the display in to the housing. Pop off the housing and put in your new color sheet (best if purchased from icolours.ca :)) and reassemble. Voila, custom colored Apple logo!

Word! Such a simple mod, but so awesome at the same time. I absolutely love it :)

I wish there were a way to step in to a room full of 100 people using Apple laptops and then fire mine up in the dark corner with my illuminated classic Apple logo beaming out of the corner. I'd probably draw a crowd of people asking me what kind of laptop I had.. "Is that new or something dude??" lol

how does your Mini handle the 24inch dell. Are the graphics in the mini capable of handling the 1920x1200 res well. Im planning on getting one for my dell 24" but im worried if its up to it. I'll be using it mainly for graphics work.

Unfortunately, the G5 and Cinema Display have gone to a new home. I still have the 12" Powerbook, but currently using a new 15" MacBook Pro for my notebook. Apple would still have me as a desktop customer if they'd ever worked out the video card compatibility issue. Especially now that we can boot Windows easily.

After the internal ODD went out in my Indigo iMac I had to get creative in order to install Puma. The system didn't want to boot from an external ODD so I had to connect one to the IDE cable where the internal HDD normally goes. I then connected the HDD via a USB.

the magic mouse can be fun to use, i dont use it quite often, i do agree that it isnt very ergonomic..

And no, this is the old 80gb spinning disk version.. plus the hard drives are 1.8" Pata drives... nearly impossible for SSD, no performance gain either.. cant wait for the 2010 model so i can get a nice SSD and 4gb of ram going! which reminds me... this mac air is for sale. :D

the magic mouse can be fun to use, i dont use it quite often, i do agree that it isnt very ergonomic..

And no, this is the old 80gb spinning disk version.. plus the hard drives are 1.8" Pata drives... nearly impossible for SSD, no performance gain either.. cant wait for the 2010 model so i can get a nice SSD and 4gb of ram going! which reminds me... this mac air is for sale. :D

You have the non-Nvidia version? I think the Nvidia ones came w/ SATA IIRC.

yup, your right. the one i have is the very first to come out. 1.6Ghz, 2gb ddr2, 80gb 1.8" Pata... still a beautiful 13" screen and 6 hours of battery life with normal use.. and it weighs less than a glass of water!

(seriously though, its for sale, BestBuy warranty till 2012, will be putting up a For Sale soon)

There are 1.8" SSD drives like this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167026&cm_re=x18-_-20-167-026-_-Product) Intel drive.

Hey guys I need some help and was wondering if I could get some assistance? I am looking to get a macbook pro 13" from my local microcenter. They have it on sell for $1067. But I was online looking up promo codes and I saw that back in Feb10, they had it where it was $800 with promo code. My question is do any of you have a microcenter promo code for the macbook pro?

Please let me know, thanks.

I think the sale you are thinking of was a white macbook for $800 not a 13" MBP.

You maybe right, but I thought it was for the macbook pro. Also with microcenter saleing the macbook pro 13" I wonder if I could use my college ID so that I can get the $100 discount for being a college student or is that only when purchasing the laptop through Apple? Also if you do come across any promo codes for microcenter on macbook pros in the next few days let me know.

Thanks.

Yes it is from Ikea. I love the look of it. But the table legs are horrible unstable. I originally had the bigger wooden ones but thought they were ugly so I went w/ these ones instead. :down:

Next time I go to Ikea I'll likely grab a set of the wooden ones again.

curious if anyone mods iPad cases around here.

I recently got a "hand-me-down" an iPad2 and I remember seeing the Otterbox Defender for iPad1 @ Target for $24 Clearance price (Retails around . So most of outside features for iPad2 is not readily accessible for the OTDef iPad1 case understandably, but with a little drilling and filing this could be resolved. Plus according to most reviews on Amazon of the OTDef iPad2 case, doesn't have the same ruggedness and heavy plastic coverage as of the iPad1 case.

It fits snuggly inside the iPad1 case. And it does gives you the feel that this case can take the beating.

Just curious if anyone else have modded their iPad cases around here.

Thanks, it's an awesome keyboard. Keys are just the right weight, my only tiff with it is the crappy drum pads they're not the best for inputing rhythms. I used to have an awesome Alesis SR-16 unfortunately that went the way of the dodo.

I ditched the optical drive in my 17" MBP, and dropped two 120GB Sandisk Ultra II's in.

It does fairly well. Speeds might be higher on the compressible benchmarks if it was SATA III, but its an ancient Mid-2010 model.

davidkozat
01-17-2012, 09:39 PM
The sandisk is sata2 ssd so a sata3 mobo wont run it any faster and to be honest the Sandisk ultra ssd is rather slow and expesive there are better alternatives...

ZOMGVTEK
01-18-2012, 09:06 PM
The drives were purchased knowing they would be used on a SATA II controller, so I didn't swing for SATA III drives. I would have went with another drive if I had SATA III on both slots. These happened to be the lowest cost option, and reportedly reliable with its 32nm NAND flash that is rated for more writes than 25nm counterparts.

I don't really care about synthetic benchmark numbers, and the newer SATA III SSD's aren't much faster at writing uncompressed video. The 'peak' numbers sure are higher, but they don't perform much better at writing uncompressed video.

Reliability, performance, and cost were all concerns. The Sandisk Ultra II's happened to most adequately fit my needs.

What does your system get on the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test?

My RAID0 setup with SATA II Sandisk Ultra II 120GB SSD's on a SATA II controller, is over 200% of what a single Chronos Enhanced 120GB SSD on SATA III will do.

It's all in the snazzy Sandforce compression.

I havent tested my software raid but am using 3 ocz agility 3 of 60 gb each which each hard drive is half the price as the sanddisk and i would say at least twice the speeds I will test them and let ya know...

ZOMGVTEK
01-18-2012, 11:08 PM
The Sandisk Ultra II is rated at 30,000 IOPS 4KB random read, which is 50% higher than the Agility 3. The read/write speeds are similar, at 195 MB/s read 130 MB/s write, in AS-SSD. This would indicate a maximum throughput of 390MB/s and 260MB/s respectively on the Agility 3, of which my real life setup achieves around 85% of, on a SATA II controller.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227726

The 120GB version is $30 more than I paid for my drives for identical capacity.

I did a bit of research, and these drives appear to be the best bang for the buck, along with being one of the higher performing SATA II SSD's on the market. I'd love to see what your 3 SSD RAID0 setup will do in Lion on the same benchmark. All the evidence I can find suggests the Sandisk drives are fairly good.

Fair enough on the MBP unfortunately my macbook wont run aja benchmark neither does my Hackintosh for some reason and lets not forget we are using Software raid and one of the mean reason I bought it was cos of sata 3 and my motherboard limits the speed of my sata 3 ports so am running it on the sata2.... Ill use Disk speed test and let you know... and in the UK HW seems to be cheaper?... I paid £60 around 100 dollars... the reading on the sata2 raid of 2 ssds is around 450 reading (windows mind you) and the random write @4kbs is 50.000 iops...

I figured out why I couldnt run the HDD benchmarks, it turns out I got to allow it, by changing the hard drive to full access, anyway I got a nvidia controller on my MacBook so most of the time my Sata 2 controller will run the SSD at 1.5 instead so the benchmarks arent great, till it uses the full 3Gb full speed, by the way the hackintosh flies thanks to my 4 SSDs on raid (still only software raid) cant find a decent raid card for both win and mac.
