    It be freakin' fast! I got an optical mouse to go with it. I'm gonna be a Quake pimp! I got the 400MHz model that was the latest before last week's keynote. I got it for $1300. It was a demo but it wasn't out for that long and I know it was in good shape (I'm the one that put it on demo in the first place). This thing is awesome. Tomorrow I'm gonna redo my room setup and turn my iMac into a little dedicated server. I'll try to get a hotline server set up for the clan and stuff.

    Aren't they cool?

    I've had mine for a few months. No complaints.

    Now if I can just talk my employer into getting me a Cinema Display . . .

    Very cool, Jakeman. I bought mine (400Mhz as well) about 3 months ago (right after I got this job--I had to buy something big to compensate for the loss of 50 hours a week). It rocks for UT, but I was disappointed with its QuakeIII performance (nothing a better video card wouldn't fix!!! Are you listening, Apple?).

    I hate to say it, but it also seems rather slow for Diablo II. Again, it's probably the fault of the video card. Anyway, I'm running D2 in OpenGL mode and I've given it 100MB of RAM. I'm also running a minimal amount of extensions and it's still a lot slower than I had expected. Any performance hints anyone?

    I'm gonna get the Radeon when they ship in Sept. I'm gonna pick up a 19'' Viewsonic PF790 today, along with a 128 chip to bring me up to 192MB. I think that D2 slow down is because of ATI's crappy drivers.
