Mac Setups: Backlit iMac 27″ & iPad 2

Sep 10, 2011 - 19 Comments

backlit iMac 27"

This great reader submitted setup comes from recent Mac switcher Brian D and features an iMac 27″ that is backlit with some Ikea LED strip lighting, an iPad 2, and an external 18″(?) display atop the iPads box. All of the screens are running the classic Flip clock screensaver, Fliqlo, which is one of my personal favorites. Elsewhere you’ll spot an iPhone, a retro cell phone, Apple’s classic wireless keyboard, Magic Trackpad, and Magic Mouse, but few cords thanks to a customized Ikea desk with grommets drilled to hide all the cables.

    In the second picture I see a very old phone beside the iPhone on the right side of the picture. Any ideas what kind of phone it is? And if the person who’s desk setup that is is around, why are you keeping such an old phone?
