Did you modify the Macbook yourself? Looks pretty neat either way! (I just sold my macbook though!)

I have thought about getting a tablet in the past, but I don't think you can get much more accurate than the mouse for a lot of things, especially alignment of stuff etc. although when doing vector stuff, the tablet would be a godsend!

I do however wish there was a way to put the mouse sensitivity up or down on demand (like a second scroll wheel on the mouse or keyboard to increase or decrease sensitivity so when I'm in photoshop @ 100-400% and I only want move like 1 pixel at a time on the thing i'm working on, it would make it a bit easier! (Although I've almost got the whole moving 1 pixel at a time thing done :D (at 100% on my screens)


Hello Daniel,

Yes I did modify my Macbook on my own, and since I specialize in Graphic art, tablets are basically the only thing I use! My Wacom Graphire come shipped with a copy of Photoshop Elements 3 and much more! Another unique thing about this tablet, is the ability to write and the computer translates it into regular text, called INK. Since the tablet pen gives me more prescise control you have the ability to do precise adjustments as well.

Keep me posted! :)

My playroom. I'm stuck between two worlds right now. I've invested in all PC hardware and software, but I'm becoming very fond of the new MacBook.

Steve - you not got a standard desktop machine? If not, how do you live with just laptops - good or bad idea for you?

I mostly rely on the PC laptop in the middle, and it's three years old and not very fast. However, I'm mostly working with 20D images which aren't too big so that helps a little. When I'm working with the G9 raw images, 14mb, that's another story. Video editing would be nearly impossible for my machines.

The office just gave us the MacBook you see on the right. It's a 2.16GHz core 2 duo machine which is much quicker than the other laptop. The problem is that all my editing software is on the PC.

Thought about installing Parrallels Desktop on the mac? Run the windows XP or Vista OS ontop of OS X, and even run the apps inside OS X.

google parrallels desktop - you'll find it

p.s. - OS X 10.5 is out today !

I have Parallels on it now, but it runs pretty slow. I'm going to install Bootcamp on it and try running it so that it doesn't have to share resources with the Mac OS.

Yeah, I saw that the new Mac OS is out, but I don't know much about it. I've been more of a Windows guy in the past.

Have you heard of a program called Synergy? It's pretty cool. Can use one mouse and keyboard for as many PCs as you like. + Its Mac, Windows and Linux compadible :)

So you could just have both your laptops beside each other and have a single keyboard and mouse and span across them :)

It's a bit of an old threat, but I found it and thought I'd share my new, temporary workspace. A friend from university is on his way back home for the summer, and stored his monitor at my place. So... dual-screen till September! :)
(I have permission to use the screen by the way)
