Some really, really cool setups and systems - time to lower the tone quality wise, by posting up my lil system:

Personally I'm really, really happy with the machine. It's powerful enough for what I use it for, which is mostly just browsing the 'net and office related work. The upgrade to 2GB has definitely made it a lot more speedy, though I never really noticed any problems with it before. I'm gonna upgrade to Windows Se7en once the RTM version is available.

What I like about the machine, is that it's virtually silent (when you're typing you flat out can't hear it, even when not typing it's barely audiable), it takes up a small amount of space, and because it uses an Intel Atom processor, it hardly uses any electricity - the machine has hardly been switched off since the beginning of February, and yet my last Electricity bill was actually a lil bit less than it usually is, which has gotta be a good sign :)

Same thing I love about my Dell Studio Hybrid, enough power for office work, surfing, photo editing and managing my music collection while taking up no space and being virtually. I'm so happy with it I ordered one for my wife this weekend and I'm considering a nettop for the media system next. I think interest in compact/low power systems is growing enough there is no need to apologize for it. That is the nice thing about the platform, you can accommodate everything from palm tops and kiosk to super computing.

Amen to that :)

It's interesting about the Dell Studio Hybrid - they'd got one of those next to the Asus I ended up buying, but I couldn't justify the price around ?400, compared to the ?160 I paid for the Eee Box. What's bizzare, however, is that on Saturday I happened to be in the same store where I brought my Eee Box, and it had jumped in price upto ?249.99

If I had to pay that kinda price now, I'd definitely pay a lil bit more and get the Dell Hybri:) :)

Here are my monitors, the smaller one is attached to a 4 port kvm :)

This is my main desktop and on top os a free to air satellite and terrestrial receiver that I use and runs back to the larger dell monitor that has a sound bar attached below it and watch TV using the picture in picture mode. It's neat :) Also that's my Tomtom on top of the satellite receiver.

desktop2.jpg

This is my web server used to be a desktop and now hosts my wordpress blog and does little else at present. To the left allot of computer books, I have no shelves at present.

I know the desk is messy and there's allot of dust about, I'm lazy ok? :p

Yea the back is messy I agree, it's a nice setup though as you say :). I used to have a Windows Domain but downsized and removed some cabling but have not worked out how best tidy up the remaining cable yet. :blush:

What program is that?

latest version of XBMC, previously was called Xbox Media Center, but not anymore. Right now runs on old XBOX (not recommended, to slow) Windows, Linux, Mac and Apple TV

Tis a Chameleon. Is yours friendly? I worked in a petstore and we had one that absolutely loved people. He would sit on our shoulders while we were running the register for hours on end.

somewhat friendly, it doesn't want to come out of the cage, but once it does it is friendly.

That's what sucks about it. All these cool skins are coming out but the old Xbox doesn't have enough juice to run them smoothly (but it will run them).

I'm thinking of getting an Apple TV and putting XBMC on there along with Boxee (Y)

I don't believe anything has changed since last month, but I figure it's not a bad idea to update, just incase something has changed.

I've always wanted a corner desk although it looks like a dust magnet.

I never like corner desks, but like L-desks, lots of room.

Nice monkey ;)
