Can you find a more awesome Mac setup? Check out these machines and their stats, they’re sure to make you envious:

Mac Pro
* Intel Xeon W3540 2.93Ghz Quad Core
* 6GB DDR3 1067 ECC RAM
* ATi Radeon HD 4870
* 1TB OS X
* 640GB Windows 7 64bit
* Dual 23″ Apple Cinema HD Displays

MacBook Pro 15″
* Intel Core 2 Duo 2.53Ghz
* nVidia GeForce 9400M / 9600GT 512MB
* 320GB 7,200 Western Digital Black HDD

And of course there’s a set of speakers, a couple external hard drives, and iPod, and an iPhone.

This might just be one of best Mac setups I’ve seen. I certainly wouldn’t mind having that hardware on my desk!

    How did you manage to connect dual 23″ displays with the Macbook Pro? Are you using a special DVI splitter of some sort?

    I also have two 23″ cinema displays that I would like to connect to my old Macbook Pro (one generation older than yours), but I can’t find the right gadget to get them to hook up properly.

    Any suggestions?

      I have a MBPro connected to a 27″ Cinema Display (not thunderbolt) and a 24″ Samsung display, and can also use the screen on th MBP for a third monitor. Here’s how –
      The Apple Cinema Display is connected to a miniDVI port adapter plugged into the MBP and the Samsung is connected with a $5 cable from Amazon the is DVI on one end to HDMI on the other, plugged into the HDMI port.

      I’ve tried adapters, but this works flawlessly.
