Christian's Mac mini setup II
Well, this is an update of my Mac mini setup. Actually, little has changed, but I thought I'd post the updated setup anyway.

The Mac mini is a first generation PowerPC model (1.25GHz), with 1GB of RAM and a 60GB 7200rpm HD which I plan to swap with a bigger one. It has a Combo drive and is running OS X 10.4.10 currently. Peripherals seen on the picture include a 20-inch Cinema Display, a MacAlly iceKey Slim keyboard and a MacMice mouse as well as three iPod docks, one for the 2nd gen shuffle, one for a 1st gen nano and one for a 5.5gen 80GB Video iPod. The 4th iPod (a 2nd-gen 10GB doesn't have a dock.) Under the table, there's an external 250GB HD and a DVD burner, along with a holy mess of cables. Other devices in the picture include my PDA, a Sharp Zaurus running Linux, and my first gen MacBook (1.83GHz Core Duo), upgraded to 2GB of RAM and a 120GB 5400rpm HD myself. It is running Gentoo Linux.

nice, how much was the apple display when you originally purchased it? and is the macbook running linux exclusively you say?
Christian [Jul 20, 2007 at 06:15 AM]
@voicimas: The Apple display was purchased right after it came out (February 2003 IIRC), was $1300 or €1600 in Germany, price for the DVI to ADC adapter not included. Yes, the MacBook is running Linux exclusively, but I keep an OS X install on an external HD to be able to apply firmware updates and such.

do you really need to run linux on your MB? Using dualboot or you erase the Mac partition totally?
Christian [Jul 21, 2007 at 01:04 PM]
@mujako: Yes. No dual-boot, it's the only OS.

great gear you have there. i still really like the old apple displays. the white keyboard and mouse look a lot better in your setup than the black ones you used to have.
