Mac Setups: Mac Mini TV Setup, MacBook Pro, and iOS Hardware
This reader submitted Mac setup features a dual use Mac Mini and a MacBook Pro, as well as a bunch of great iOS gear. The Mac Mini connects to a TV to function as a digital hub for the household, alternating between the 32″ TV shown in the picture and a 55″ HDTV in another room, where it serves up video, pictures, and other media.
The hardware shown includes:
- Mac Mini 2010 8GB RAM, 320GB HD
- Samsung 32″ LCD TV/Monitor
- MacBook Pro 13″ late 2011, 8GB RAM, 500 GB HD
- iPhone 4 16 GB (Verizon)
- iPod Touch 4 32GB
- iPad 2 White 16GB
- Apple Wireless Keyboard
- Apple Magic Trackpad
- Seagate 2 TB External HD (via AEBS)
- Not shown: Apple Airport Extreme Base Station, Apple Airport Express (extender)
The background image shown on both Macs is the planned new Apple “Spaceship” campus set to be built in Cupertino, California.
