Hi everyone,

figured I'd tell you because I never saw anyone on the forum do it before(I'm sure you have but...whatever)

After a brief period of disorder, My family's house's rennovation is finally complete. I am now in my permanent bedroom..What does this mean?

Well,since my desk in my room is against a wall, and I am rather limited for space on my desk(well..I'm not...I just take up a lot of room...) I will be wall mounting my cinema Display. I'll probably pick up the wall mount when I go and buy Tiger(April 15th according to TS).

When I get everything up and running, I'llpost back with pics!

I would like to see the finished product. I have thought about doing this with my iMac, but I'm not sure how happy I'll be with the cords hanging down.

ooooh, yeah, that's a good idea! A nice white tube wouldn't look half bad and would really clean things up. After I get few other projects out of the way this just might happen...

Actually, I was thinking of doing this the REAL way. :D :D

IF I do go through with this, and I like the way it functions, etc, I will end up running the cables through the wall...

EDIT: Got to thinking more about the wall mounted display..Would be nice if it weren't for me having a 3+ foot deep desk..I mean...It's really only supposed to be an armlength from your eyes to the display...and I don't have 3 foot arms...

actually it doesnt matter how close or far you are with LCD's..(unless its like 2cm) Just CRT's you should keep an arm length distance... I could tell you why in a paragraph if you would like ;) I learned it in tech class a week ago...lol

Edit: or are you saying you would be too far away to see?

Actually that would be great if you could tell me!
I always thought it was just because the text would look too small!
