    Wow this thing is a beaty. Playing with a Mac G5. Awesome little machine. Huge screen as well, i want one not to mention.


    You could do a ton of stuff with a screen this big. 6 websites at once, iTunes, and much more. Did i mention "WOW"?

    Sorry, just had to post this, i love it. 30 inches is huge though.

    A pic or link to what exactly? Unless X had a camera on him, there's no pics, and there's nothing to link to, other than what I posted above.

    Yeah seeing the 30" Cinema up close is amazing. I saw it at CompUSA. :classic:

    *edit* - only draw back is the price tag that matches that of the G5 ;)

    He's using Nuendo, and I'm trying to convince him to trash the PC and get a Mini.

    Computers are getting smaller and the screens are getting bigger. I like that. :)

    Nuendo is available for the Mac. It was beta'd for Mac OS X in 2002, so it's been around a while. ;)

    I could get Nuendo 3... however, that would require paying $2000... or I could stick with what I have (Nuendo 1.somethingorother, which I got for free from muzikool's friend).. I know the cd I have can be installed on a Mac, but there is a parallel adapter that is required to be plugged in as a security device to deter piracy. So my choices would be: a) get a parallel/usb adapter and see if it works on a Mac; b) see if Steinberg would make a trade (parallel for usb); c) stick with the pc; d) get a Mac and use MachFive or some other newer app instead...... just because the MacMini comes with iLife that comes with Garageband, their new statement that "pc users considering getting a Mac don't have an excuse anymore" (or something like that) doesn't apply to me... because I would be lowering too many standards to be limited to using Garageband.
