Dream Setup

I put this in Salon, because this is an exercize in pure fantasy. Let go of reality, and dream:

No holds barred, no limits other than your knowledge of the marketplace, what is your ideal retouching/restoration system? Name names. We want brand names, even model numbers. And don't limit it to hardware. Include whatever you'd want in your zillion-dollar retouching station.

Ok, here goes!

Monitor- Sony 24" Trinitron GDM-FW900 - Who needs 2 monitors when you can have this monster! Of course, you might have to reinforce your computer desk since it weighs almost 100 lbs!

Scanner- CreoScitex EverSmart Supreme (one can only dream...) Oh, and someone to spend a month showing me the ins and outs of the software! This scanner is probably way more than I need.

I'll add some more stuff later...I need to research digital cameras, and decide on a good PC.

Forgot all about this thread...

Nice stuff David! I like those THX speakers...although I doubt the neighbors would. You should add a Plasma TV for those times when you want to watch a DVD on something a bit bigger than the wimpy 24" monitor.

Just add a mini-fridge and a microwave and you are good to go!

I'll skip the catheter...my Dad just had one for a few days due to prostrate problems...not fun at all!

David - pardon my ignorance, but what is an "OC3 internet connection"? I've heard of T1, ISDN, cable, etc... OC3 must have escaped me!

no thanks, I'll skip those two even if it does mean leaving the room!

Greg - I hadn't heard of OC3 either until a few months ago. I thought T1 was fast but it's nothing compared to OC3, you can get speeds up to 155 Megabits per second!!!

I put "OC3 internet connection" on my Dream Setup list, but I'll change that to OC-48 (just found out about it) - speeds up to 2.45 Gigabits a second!
