Hello Smartey.

It looks like a good case though; maybe you should have looked at what I got. It's puurrrty!...

Cooler Master Cosmos RC-1000

They're pretty much the same case.

no. lol. i just sit in front of it. still space between my bed and dresser, I was actually thinking of using today to rearrange some things in my room.

I got rid of the dresser. I have just the PC on a 32" and my new Home Server is on my extra PC with the 17". I am moving into a new town home next month, so I am going to a extra nice setup.

Hey guys. First post here.

Here's my beast. 13" 2GHz Unibody MacBook with 2GB RAM (soon to be 4GB). Dual booting 7 Beta 1 with my beloved OS X.

Skitch.com > rspsupra > DSC01217

That's my Mac Mini on the 22" LCD in the background. That's used purely for OS X.

I converted to Mac when the first Vista alphas were around. I knew I didn't wanna suffer that garbage so I jumped ship.
Now that 7 beta has leaked and is actually usable and doesn't try to mother you like Vista does (with all the security alerts and what not), or bog your machine down, I've decided to dip my toes in the water again, and might end up using 7 as a main OS.

Hi, Ben, and welcome to the forums.

I maintain a lab of 25 iMacs (20s) at school, and the guy who wrote the project for some unknown reason decided that he wanted Vista on the iMacs - under *Parallels* - not the world's best choice - I eventually convinced him to use BootCamp and install XP (since the rest of the university was still officially using XP, via site license) and I have to say, OS X Leopard has come a long way - I thoroughly enjoy using it, especially in my C/UNIX class - didn't have to bother with installing CygWin under Vista, etc.

However, with the way W7 is benching and with it's speed, I think I am going to take one of the machines over there and make a test case out of it to see how well BootCamp and W7 play with each other. Since that is what I assume you are already doing, and since you are a *relatively* recent Mac ship-jumper, out of curiosity, *are* you using BootCamp, or something else? Also, using rEFIt (Yes, I know, Mac purists say the Command key is all you need, but not everyone at the University - hell, only maybe 20 students out of 3000, for that matter - even know how to power on the iMacs, let alone use the Command key to pick the OS....

Also, I wanted to send you a personal congratulatory note - you came in here, explained what you do, what you did and why you did without ever *once* sounding like a fanboy. My sincere and deepest gratitude for keeping it on the up and up.

Hi John,
Thank you for the warm welcome.

In answer to your question, yes I am using Boot Camp, and the drivers which were designed for XP and Vista work a charm on 7 Beta 1.
I'm not using rEFIt myself, but I have been considering it so as to run Ubuntu on a partition also. However, the thing that is stopping me, is that I don't think I'd have much of a use for it on the MacBook. I'll probably pop it on to the Mac Mini, as I think it's a much more practical platform, rather than a laptop that already has Windows and OS X loaded onto it.

Thank you also for the congratulations. I try not to be one of those fanboys that you see running around the internet screaming "WINDOWS IS THE DEVIL! USE A MAC AND GO TO HEAVEN!". I don't like them either, as they bring a negative image on us Mac users.

-Ben.

[OT]
The beauty of rEFIt is that it is highly customizable, and if you use limited accounts for your users (as we have the machines in the lab using Domain accounts - and man, was setting up AD on the Mac side 10X easier than XP!) are automatically limited, it is great - cause they have no access to the rEFIt folder at all, thus not being able to bypass anything - I have it locked down so that the machine disallows USB bootable drives, and so does rEFIt - it is really handy in a situation where you'll need to be easily able to select an OS at boot, including a default setting - the only thing missing at present is mouse support in the initial OS select screen - other than that it is pretty golden.
