My Mac Pro and 30″ Cinema Display turns a year old today.
I wrote about it here.
To date, I still have not pinpointed what have been causing all those kernel panics. I still get the odd falling gray curtain screen of death once in a while, but I do not get that stressed out anymore as I have come to expect it to happen anytime I run Adobe Flash CS3, the Cintiq and the Mac Pro together.
It would be an easy decision for me to upgrade this machine once a newer version comes out in the market. Grateful as I am for it’s service, I have no complete c0nfidence with it in it. Maybe it’s a hardware issue, maybe a software issue; I just don’t know. I just want to move on to a newer version.
The 30″ Cinema Display, on the other hand, has lived up to the task. I can’t imagine going with another computer monitor. It is so huge and gives me a lot of secondary desktop space I could not imagine getting from any thing else! I initially thought I made the mistake of running two monitors, the Cintiq being the other, at the same time but wow, how indispensable the Cinema Display has become to my work flow! It keeps my computer desktop clutter free, I can open numerous windows all at the same time with room to spare, and it works like a charm with nary a hiccup or complaint!
Still, a year old, and another year before the lease is up. I would be keeping the 30″ Cinema Display, but it would be interesting how it will be for the Mac Pro another year from now.
Until then, here’s to my Mac Pro and my Cinema Display, and have a nice day!
