    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!

    and don't forget the feeding tube and catheter
    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'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!

    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!

    oooh 24" monitor! I haven't even heard of those.
    ok here's my dream setup:

    biggest monitor I can find (the 24" monitor greg mentioned sounds awesome)
    Dual processor (probably AMDs) 2.2 Ghz each
    a few gigs of DDR ram
    2 160 GB 10,000 RPM Hard drives
    128 MB Geforce 4 vido card
    TV Tuner
    Soundblaster Audigy Platinum
    at least 32X Cd writer (preferably 48X)
    DVD writer
    OC3 internet connection
    cordless keyboard and mouse
    Wacom tablet
    Logitech 400 watt THX surround sound speaker system
    Epson perfection series scanner
    Epson 2200P printer
    Minolta DiMAGE 7i digital camera

    Software
    Triple boot, Mandrake Linux, Windows XP, Windows 2000,
    Photoshop 7

    well thats what I'd buy if I had huge amounts of money sitting around

    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.

    started a topic Dream Setup

    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.

    What's your system?
    by Doug Nelson
    I thought there was an old thread here about this very topic, but I couldn't find it. I just thought it would be interesting to see what systems everyone is working on:

    1.4ghz P4 runing WinXP Pro (SP2)
    768meg RAM
    60 gig HD
    17" Trinitron-tube monitor (old, off-brand)...

    Vga output signal - useless?
    by petersweden
    Hi

    I have a laptop with VGA output, not DVI. Is there any point in connecting the laptop to an external monitor and calibrate it or is the VGA-signal useless for retouching?

    Dual monitor calibration
    by foxgirl26
    Hello,
    I contacted Spyder by Colorvision regarding dual monitor calibration and they told me it's not supported by Windows XP or Vista.

    I know its possible somehow I just dont know how. I knew someone a while back who had accomplished it.

    The Spyder rep said only...
