yano [Jul 07, 2006 at 01:10 PM]
It's only little big size
Aquaman [Jul 07, 2006 at 01:16 PM]
Now that's a display! But why Windows?
HM [Jul 07, 2006 at 01:51 PM]
Nice Display! But Windows? Why would you do that to yourself?, seriously...
NonA [Jul 07, 2006 at 01:55 PM]
Windows? a Screen that huge? Bald? Man, you got issues....
Weee [Jul 07, 2006 at 02:43 PM]
Awesome looking display! What kind is it?
Impressed [Jul 07, 2006 at 03:46 PM]
A monitor like this one can take the vidio output from MAC, PC, DVD player, etc. So what's under your desk?
Anon [Jul 07, 2006 at 09:15 PM]
the simplicity & elegance of the mac is really set off by that bald head, sheer and utter joy to behold. a glorious experience teetering on pure nirvana which is what using a mac is, nirvana. it's the best thing in the world. a computer. i'm 10 but learned the worlds "elegance & simplicity" in school so i wanted to use them. bald is beautiful, you go girl.
Anon [Jul 07, 2006 at 10:56 PM]

Curt [Jul 08, 2006 at 03:17 AM]
Nice!
ecking [Jul 08, 2006 at 06:53 AM]
Wow I've never seen anyone use something like that is JUST a monitor. Or use it on a desk. This is first setup on the site that I can see a person in the picture.
Anon [Jul 08, 2006 at 08:33 AM]
u need more light!!!!. u are going to get glasses dude
Anon [Jul 08, 2006 at 10:35 AM]
Nice and clean setup, Jay. What is your expereince using MS Windows on a mac?
Anon [Jul 08, 2006 at 12:18 PM]
DANG look @ that big 'ol screen. U ON BOOTCAMP!? whoo whee, that a big ol HD
hellno [Jul 08, 2006 at 07:47 PM]
windONG ! what a mess !!!
bsnoel [Jul 08, 2006 at 09:06 PM]
My Mac mini is running Windows 2003 Advanced Server Enterprise Edition VIA Boot Camp. Other than no sound drivers or WiFi, it works quite well. Why W2K3 on a mini? Why not! I won the copy of Windows at an MS event. Its NFR, so I cannot use it for a real server. Never opened it until I got the mini and a really crazy idea.
Darrell [Jul 08, 2006 at 09:44 PM]
man I love that monitor, and i'm thinking about buying Apple's 30" inch display but I have to get rid of my 23" inch apple monitor first, i'm also trying to get rid of my fully loaded XPS to pay for the upcoming Intel PowerMac, so if anyone interested e-mail me at darrelljackson@cox.net
WinSysAdmin [Jul 09, 2006 at 12:20 AM]
To "bsnoel": It would be nice to see your mini running W2K3 photo posted. But I wonder how practical it is to run this way.
bsnoel [Jul 09, 2006 at 02:19 AM]
By the way, nice desk Jay.
Pooky [Jul 09, 2006 at 05:13 AM]
Why do this to yourself ? Windows is evil. You'd be better of smoking crack and teasing cops.
Bill [Jul 09, 2006 at 06:41 AM]
The iSight looks soooo tiny up there.
DecaturnNC [Jul 09, 2006 at 10:53 AM]
The first thing I thought when I saw this picture was "Good Lord!" That's all I can still say. I am disappointed in all the haters though that seem to be jealous more than anything.
Anon [Jul 09, 2006 at 11:35 AM]
im jealous so i say the setup sucks and rate down to make myself feel better
Lukom [Jul 09, 2006 at 11:40 AM]
looks to me like your slouching in your chair to make the screen look bigger
pos [Jul 09, 2006 at 06:54 PM]
absolutely amazing! Great setup, nice looking interior and a well presented work space. I think you're the first person to actually make an appearance in the photo gallery well done! Your the perfect example of a fine gentleman
newmac [Jul 09, 2006 at 08:23 PM]
I need a tissue...
D.Nox [Jul 09, 2006 at 10:44 PM]
... ... ... ... good Lord!
Anon [Jul 10, 2006 at 05:20 AM]
i think i see a dead pixel.
pos [Jul 10, 2006 at 10:26 AM]
what monitor actually is it!? Its great!
Jay [Jul 10, 2006 at 02:18 PM]
Thanks guys. The monitor is a Westinghouse LVM-37w3. I really like it - looks great at 1920x1080. I really wanted a 30" Cinema Display, but the little old Mac Mini video can not drive it. So, this was the next best setup as far as I could find. For all you folks that don't like XP, I run OSX also, but I run XP under BootCamp. It works great - supports Wifi, Bluetooth and (obviously) the video res. As a recent Apple convert, there are still a lot of apps that I need that are not ported to OSX, so I boot between the 2 OSes as needed.
rippingviper [Jul 12, 2006 at 03:21 AM]
Why the haters of windows? You have a mac mini with a Intel chip! BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! Why hate? Hes still got MAC OS on there!!!
Jazzman [Jul 13, 2006 at 11:02 PM]
I wouldn't mind staring at Windows all day on that display.
Anon [Jul 14, 2006 at 03:57 PM]
do you chat with people with the ichat and your isight??? that must be freaky 1980's scary with such a big head up there!
Anon [Jul 15, 2006 at 12:31 PM]
you could take off the sticker on your HDTV
Rob [Jul 16, 2006 at 08:56 PM]
People who hate on windows just refuse to see reality - the Mac mini is an INTEL PC. Wake-Up people stop hating hate wars have long been over.
Gator [Jul 16, 2006 at 09:35 PM]
@Rob That might be true, but it's an Intel PC that runs OS X. The war continues!
Mac Wizard [Jul 16, 2006 at 09:39 PM]
I see Boot Camp strikes again..
MIKE [Jul 16, 2006 at 11:42 PM]
true enthusiasts keep their stickers on!!
Bemopti [Jul 17, 2006 at 05:37 PM]
Thinning here too, at least Rob has the guts to go all the way! I love the monitor. Doesn't it make you feel as if you are in a flight deck of a small space ship? Apple rules, with or without Windows.
Anon [Jul 20, 2006 at 08:23 PM]
DAMN O DAMN, look at the mon-i-tor, freakin scary, that a dollar bill there?
MiniMoe [Jul 25, 2006 at 07:27 AM]
That is really cool, Jay. Your presence in the picture really gives a good perspective of how huge that monitor is compared to my 23"! Congratulations on a great setup!
pos [Sep 02, 2006 at 06:46 PM]
I still can't quite figure out how you managed to take that picture with both hands on your keyboard
Teku20 [Sep 04, 2006 at 12:14 AM]
Cool
pompeii [Nov 11, 2006 at 01:42 PM]
Jay, I hope you check this considering it's been months. I am curious if the Mini set it to 1920x1080 right out of the box, or if you had to mess with it. I am looking to purchase the exact same monitor, but want to make sure it will display 1080p from the Mini out of the box. Thanks man!
buckfl [Jan 03, 2007 at 09:04 PM]
Nice!
Skipernicus [Mar 12, 2007 at 08:43 AM]
That is wicked cool. I have to say, though, that it's hilarious to me to see geeks divided over platform issues - you have both now - live it up!
Meepinhiemer [Jun 14, 2007 at 12:09 AM]
Why torture yourself, but nice screen, but don't you think you're a little close to it?
arntss [Sep 30, 2007 at 03:55 AM]
Wonder which apps you don't get for the mac, that is for win xp
lespaulplaya9842 [Dec 04, 2007 at 06:52 PM]
OMG a 36" for a computer monitor??? holy crap!
talltodd [Feb 02, 2008 at 09:30 PM]
Where did you get the desk? I need a corner desk and it looks lik eyou have a nice one.
Mr Wentum [Jun 03, 2008 at 01:29 PM]
THIS STILL MAKES ME CRY OF LAUGHTER!!!
voicimas [Dec 05, 2008 at 12:26 AM]
It makes me crack up too! Especially that very first comment, hahaha! so out of place
billb [Mar 01, 2009 at 03:03 AM]
