Rig of the Week

TUAW Rig of the Week: Crunching numbers

TUAW reader el frijole should have no trouble "crunching numbers" with this bad boy. A plethora of Xserves get busy...well, doing something important and demanding. Note the three empty slots that once housed dead drives. Poor little guys. "Number c...

Rig of the Week: Oh, the horror

This week's rig was chosen for one reason only: It made us shudder. We realize that the Cube wasn't exactly Apple's greatest success, but this is like using a Ferrari as a doorstop. At least we can take consolation in the fact that it's not at the du...

Rig of the Week: EmBee and Blackie

So Rig of the Week is a day late this time. Oh, well. A few weeks ago we pointed out a modded MacBook that had received a key transplant (among other things). This week, TUAW reader Alexandra Roberts took the idea a step further with this pair of Ma...

Rig of the Week: The wireless Newt

Rig of the Week is back (again). Why? Because Rig of the Day was overkill. This week we take one more stab at the Newton's being named Apple's number one flop with this shot of a 2100 wirelessly browsing TUAW. No images, of course, but it's our word...

Rig of the week: 6 displays are better than 1

The Rig of the Week has risen from the ashes of the Rig of the Day. It is better, stronger, and less frequent than before. We will now feature a super cool rig from the TUAW pool every Sunday. This week features one Mac Pro hooked up to 6 23" Apple ...

Rig of the Day: Romantic monitor

30 inch Apple Cinema Displays boost productivity, especially when they are hooked up to 17 inch MacBook Pros. It is a fact. This cool rig, the backlight monitor really does it for me, is spartan but some folks were crying out for simpler rigs. See, ...

Rig of the Day: Monitors are just cooler on the wall

Say what you will about Rig of the Day, and I know you will, but nothing says 'Rig of the Day' to me more than a monitor mounted on a wall. It just does something for me, plus think of all the extra productiity. So, today's rig is simple, clean, and...

Rig of the Day: That's some office

The more, the better, right? This office consists of dual 2.0Ghz G5 (probably replaced by now with a Mac Pro), a 15 inch PowerBook, a 1.0 Ghz G4, and three Cinema displays. That's a lot of computing power for one office. BWJonesOffice by BWJones. I...

Rig of the Day: How much more tech can fit in this picture?

Now, this might not be the flashiest rig out there, but it sure has lots of stuff in it. Plus, it is all conveniently labeled, and how can you not love that. 103 inches of monitor, 7.5 terabytes of storage, and not as many wires as one might expect....

Rig of the Day: Now that's a TV

Who says you need a fancy new Mac mini to power some serious TV hardware. Here we see a G4 450 'Sawtooth' (remember the G4's?) powering a 60" Sony SXRD HDTV. That's one big tv, and one Retro Mac (now), I mean that thing can't even run Windows! 60" ...

Rig of the Day: Mac mini DVD player

Continuing our theme of Macs in the living room, we have an Intel Mac mini hooked up to a TV with keyboard and mouse no where to be seen. I know the minis would be very popular in livingrooms, but I had no idea how popular they would be. Who needs a...

Rig of the Day: My HDTV is bigger than yours

I have seemingly declared this week 'TV' week on the Rig of the Day, so I knew I couldn't post this one. Now, I know there isn't an actual Mac in this picture, but rest assured that big 91 inch screen is being powered by an Intel iMac. I wonder what...

Rig of the Day: A perfect setup for iTunes movies

This rig is certainly ready for iTunes Store movies (and any other kind of movies as well). Who needs an iTV when you can just hook up your Mac to a giant tv and call it a day? Home Theatre by jaronbrass. If you'd like to see your own rig featured ...

Rig of the Day: HDTV via a Mac mini

Another nice and tidy desk. TUAW must have the neatest readers ever. This desk is graced by a lovely Samsung HDTV, an Intel Mac mini, an Apple Remote, a few external drives, and an XBox 360 (we'll forgive that one). Watching movie trailers using thi...

Rig of the Week: Ambient light iMac

I thought that StolidSoul's idea of a Backlight iMac was fantastic; so fantastic that I hereby crown it Rig of the Week. Sure, it isn't the most awesome rig in the world, but it does showcase one of Apple's greatest designs in a very nice fashion an...
