quad-head MacBook Air (sorta...)

Newer Older

Four screens (effectively) on the MacBook Air at the office in DC.

Apple //c tied into a terminal session via serial cable, 20-inch Apple Cinema Display, and 7-inch Mimo 720-S USB display. More info on the serial terminal setup in my blog post.

[[ Hah -- I got Gizzed, it seems. Yea, I should've hooked up the iPhone 4 (which took this shot) and iPad into the mix via AirDisplay. And hey, don't knock the Magic Trackpad -- it beats the hell out of a mouse for all but certain games. Oh, and the Dell down there -- they make me keep it around. At least it's headless!

This is the dayjob office, btw. The home office setup is here... ]]

UPDATE: This *was* the dayjob office. In January I left all that behind (well, I brought the hardware home with me!) and am now self-employed, working on TouchArcade.com full time. And it's awesome.

    is the MacBook Air connected to the ADC display? How did you do it, obviously you have to use the ADC-DVI adaptor and then is it just the simple mini display port connector into the MBA?

    Technology sure has come a long way! I remember the first Macs I used would have been...I dunno, the Performa series or something? Whatever it was, it was from the early '90s.

    Not only Macs and screens, looking at the small details, this setup is SO geeky. I love it!

    Yeah - ditto on the terminal login via serial. V cool. Would love to run some terminal games over a network using old kit.

    What specs does your MBA have? Just half-curious and half-in awe.

  15. blakespot 92 months ago | reply

    CalvinTheLoh: It's an 11-inch Air, 1.6GHz, 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD. I think it's my favorite Mac of all.
