I was thinking after uni, when I’m back out in the real world (this time for good) I might buy an iMac for design stuff in the house, reason being other than getting a lovely bit of kit, I can get a 27″ screen, with 1080p, so I can have a decent size to design things on. Last year on placement I had one of the new 27″ iMac’s to work on and it was the shizz, then when I’d come home I would have to make do with 15.2″ on my laptop, this was previously 17″, but I downsized for portability reasons due to DJing.
Rather than splash out a couple of grand on a new iMac, I have discovered that my Samsung 32″ LED monster supports 1080p through VGA, this gives me tonnes more room on screen which I will make good use of. Yes I could have done this through HDMI, but I lost my cable, and funds are low at the minute! One thing I do need to get is a wireless keyboard and trackpad, I could use these on my laptop, but my table that the TV sits on is a bit on the small side and I don’t wanna go blind at such a young age, plus the VGA cable I have isn’t the longest, again I could buy a longer cable, but I like the idea of being able to sit up in bed with just a keyboard and trackpad and do work, its what I normally do with my laptop and I’ve gotten used to the comfort!
By the way, unfortunately the TV in the image isn’t mine, I’d need to save up for a while for that bad boy!
