Ya, that's awesome! I had thought of doing that, but my laptop just sits in front of a blank wall ...

It looks insanely awesome though, but would get irritating if the cables to the side were out of wack!

That web site is crap. How do they do it? Not the web site, the desktop images?

Is dana's mouse on the left of the picture electronic or bio, and is it called Mac?

meh. I've seen better. Their photochopper should get the sack, the desktop image doesn't even line up with the background

Merged.

Thanks for the heads up Spargo. :) These mods are very cool to look at, but must take ages to get all lined up and set up nicely.
