    Excellent. I am a DJ on the side and have gel sheets for my Par cans so I can stripe the color easy enough. Just think that is one of the best mac mods I have seen and yet so understated.

    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

    I guess I'm not the only one that thought the demise of the coloured logo was a mistake

    Other than that : it's totally cool

    it's running at 7200rpm, and yes, they are faster than internal harddrive.
    And the speed difference is noticeable.

    I am planning on upgrading hard drive to raptor, and CPU with Merom this winter. I hate to see it becoming faster than my macbook pro. But I think it will be worth the upgrade...

    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.

    Here's my little setup:



    Teh Macbook on the left:

    1.83 Merom
    2 gb
    160 gb hd

    Mac Mini (under the dualies)
    -monitor on left-

    1.83 Merom
    2 gb Kingston
    60 gb hd (I'm upgrading)
    Lacie 250 gb external

    Egads, teh PC running the dualies

    e6600 @ 3.4
    2gb Corsair pc8500
    Evga 8800 GTX
    Netcell raid card
    Dvico HD TV tuner

    lol at this (yeah, my room gets hot as sh1t):

    150 gb Raptor x (Vista)
    200 Maxtor (Mandriva)
    250 WD Caviar (XP/Ubuntu)
    400 gb WD Caviar (Data)
    500 gb Seagate (Media)
    3 x 74 gb raptors in RAID (Netcell)

    The high maintenance cat on top of my PC is my friend's ex-wife's cat who he got from the divorce. Chip is my little black dude on the right.

    Not a bad setup. Wish I had dual 30" Apple Cinemas and a Mac Pro to boot as well. Next raise I guess...;-)

    Here is Chip crashed on teh Mini - he digs it.
