I like this, only top new (and most expensive) Apple stuff...
Anon [May 03, 2006 at 05:33 AM]
sure looks like a 20" to me... are you sure it's a 23"? I have a 20" right here with my isight on it and it sure looks a lot like what you've got in comparison.

Yeah, it's a 23" and the monitor is 3.5"+ wider than the keyboard. What you're seeing is the exaggerated perspective of a wide angle lens up close. That's a 36" deep desk and with 6" of desk in front of the keyboard, there's still 13.5" between it and the monitor base, and over 3" between the monitor base and the wall.

Looks great! How do those Bose speakers sound in person?
Anon [May 03, 2006 at 10:15 PM]
you're right, my bad. it's the distance between the keyboard... if i look at the mini in comparison it's more obvious it's a 23'er... regardless of the size it's a sweet setup.

Very nice setup, neat and clean
MiniMoe [May 03, 2006 at 11:17 PM]
Thanks for the compliments about neat and clean. There was a lot of dropping string to the bottom to run wires behind it involved to get it clean looking like that. Regarding the speakers... in another life I was an audiophile and "Bose" stood for "Better Off with Something Else." The bass is muddy, but they're okay otherwise. If looks and cost weren't an issue, and this wasn't my office, I would've bought the Klipsh 2.1.

Awesome gear, but it might be time to buy a better digital camera! Was the 2GB RAM and 120GB HD aftermarket or BTO? If so, where did you buy the drive?

kewl..very neat
miniMoe [May 05, 2006 at 04:50 PM]
LOL! That picture was taken with the Intel webcam on my PC (90 degrees to the right). The memory and drive are Apple. The drive is a Seagate Momentus 5400.2.

Very nice setup. Clean, functional and elegent.
MiniMoe [May 06, 2006 at 10:20 PM]
Thank you. That desk has a modesty panel for structural strength 1" from the wall. I spent a lot of time with a pull string fishing all the wires and security cables down behind it. The "brick" is on the floor.

Now this is a sexay Mac mini setup. That ACD is absolutely stunning. Great setup!
Dustin [May 11, 2006 at 04:35 PM]
I would love to have a 23" Apple Cinema.
Neil [May 12, 2006 at 09:02 PM]
I don't understand why someone would buy this over a 20" iMac.
MiniMoe [May 14, 2006 at 09:07 PM]
Thanks, guys. Why over a 20" iMac? 1920 x 1200 (1080 HDTV) resolution, 23" vs 20" size, no chin, I keep the monitor and don't lose money on it if I upgrade the cpu.
Anon [May 15, 2006 at 06:48 AM]
"No chin" I would rather have a Core Duo Mac mini with a 23" Cinema than an iMac. The iMac looks like a white toilet seat. I've never liked the way it looks. I just hope Apple offers the MacBook in black because white is soooo played out.

i like it... nice!
Tyler [May 18, 2006 at 04:14 PM]
i want a mac mini soo bad
MacLover [Jun 07, 2006 at 11:38 PM]
Very nice! I'm not a fan of your speakers though... Agree on MacMini with Cinema display over iMac. iMac are ugly!
Greg [Jun 18, 2006 at 05:37 PM]
Hi MiniMoe! Nice 23'' Display. I'm considering one too, but I only have the 1.42GHz PPC Mini and am wondering if my graphic card is able to handle the 23'' display. Any idea or feedback for me? Cheers, Greg
