New Setup

15 Dec

I finally received a Dell monitor that works (3rd time is the charm), so this is what I ended up with:

  • Dell 2405FP
  • Dell 2001FP
  • MacBook Pro
  • Mac Mini
  • Logitech X Revolution
  • Apple Bluetooth Keyboard
  • iCurve (thanks Matt!)

It’s working out pretty well so far. I am using Synergy to control the Mini and the MacBook Pro from the same mouse and keyboard. Also have Parallels installed so I can run Windows when needed. TODO: Upgrade to 2GB of RAM in both the Mini and the MacBook Pro.

UPDATE: I contacted Apple last Friday and received my new charger in the mail today (Monday). Pretty fast!

Nothing happened.
