    If you got a Apple display yeah, but they're like £529 upwards.

    Would rather a iMac though personally.

    Strange things are afoot in the currency exchange market.
  7. Combine this monitor with the Air or MB Pro and your set. This demonstrates the power of Thunderbolt quite nicely.

    Apple\Intel pushing the envelope yet again.

    To which envelope are you referring? The one where they see how much they can overprice something, and still sell a s*** pile of them?

    They'd have to pay you to have it before you'd ever be satisfied with any price for anything ;)

    No, I walk around in sack cloth and never buy anything but bread and goat's milk.

    Although, if you're referring to Apple product, you're probably right.

    I always pictured you in overalls, a plaid shirt, with a loaded shotgun and a jug of moonshine, on a rocking chair on your front porch. And a beagle at your feet.

    Just when I thought the joke was good enough, you mentioned the beagle. LOL

    Well, I'm gonna forego the flannel shirt, at least for tomorrow anyway. (Supposed to hit the century mark here Thursday + Friday).

    You can sub out the beagle for a badly overweight, (24+ pounds), Maine Coon, but other than that, you're on the right track. You just have to adjust your imaginations to a very ghetto chanel.

    Anyway, how did you guys manage to get the who said what quotes so very badly f***ed up?

    Moving on, go Apple!. I gotza gitz me 3 of dem thunderblaster money-tors for "I" finicky!

    I had a hefty Maine Coon as well, about 20 lbs. Is yours extremely vocal? She drove my Russian Blue insane.....oh dear...am I off topic again?

    You, off topic? Why heavens to megaratroid, perish the thought.
    Actually, "Bangor" is fairly quiet. He does have a loud, pigeon coo type of purr. But it's the oddest thing, from time to time, he actually snorts and purrs at the same time. Now my ragdoll, when that animal wants attention, (usually in the middle of the night), he sounds like he's being neutered without anesthesia. You need to keep an extra pillow handy to chuck at him.

    Maybe I'll buy one of the new Mac Minis to hit him over the head with, next time he starts that s***. See! Right back on topic.

    BTW "20 pounds" is a REALLY hefty "she" cat.

    Lynx would make the "neutered without anesthesia" sound at around 3:00am whilst circling the kitchen for some unknown reason. So I would take her to bed with us...to watch some tv....on our 27" Thunderbolt display....see, not enough O's in smoooooooth.

    Now that I think about it, I want to start the biggest and best porn site ever!

    I'll call on Apple, as I turn to the dark side.......

    Just imagine this , an abandoned house trailer, chock full to the crumbling ceiling tiles, with the new Mac MIni server editions! That'd get the smut out there, in a big, big, hurry...!

    Yeah we got hollered on by the vet more than once. She was slim and trim until we had to get her fixed. She got in a scrap with another cat that punctured her plural sac. After the surgeries to rid her of infections, she proceeded to balloon up.(19.8 lbs at one weigh in) It didn't matter what we did. She lived to be 16 so not a bad run considering.

    If only Apple displays came in matte, I might actually consider getting one.

    Otherwise it's like looking into a mirror. But maybe that's what Apple's typical consumer likes...
  21. thunderbolt looks excellent.

    Nope, $1,800 for the high-spec Mac mini, not £1,800 for the "decent" spec. A Mac mini with 4 GB of RAM and other specs that are on the cheaper models are plenty for most tasks, just not heavy-duty gaming.
  23. Uh yeah... if you complain about the prices, you can't afford it so don't knock it and move along.

    I don't go to a Lamborghini or even a Merc dealership and complain about how overpriced they are. The car is not for me.

    People just like to talk some dumsht all the time about Apple being expensive and overpriced... there's a market for a 1k Display - and you're not the target.
  24. FURThermore, I'm a pro mac user for many years, I don't like the glossy screen, but no one's actually invented a matte replacement, I think it can be done so innovators and inventors... start crackin'. And I want 15% for the idea.

    You just need to pull off that glass screen and make a replacement. Don't just sit around and wait to be fed like chicks in a nest, if you don't like the high gloss glass screen lets see some action on your end.
  25. Im sorry but why would I go buy something like this for such a high price. I can build a pc that is twice if not three times faster, network it just as easy, and have an incredibly stable system for not even half the price as a mac of any type. To much hype, to much money, and not enough bang for my buck. Yall can keep them. One side note: If you try to repair or work on macs, thats even more money out of your wallet.
