this is actually 1600x1200 and "hangs off" the top and bottom of the screen. works pretty well.

If I had a place for it, I'd leave my SE/30 and its assortment of accessories hooked up. I love that thing.

i need an SE/30. i've got a pair of SEs (one with a rather rare SuperMac SpeedCard), but no SE/30.

current Apple stable:

a //c, 6 compact Macs, 1 MacTV, 5? Mac II series, a Quadra 650 (i'd love a 950 or 840av), a 6100/60av (one of the rare factory models, not a dealer upgrade), a 7300/180, two clones, a G3 233, two Duos, a PB 165, a PB 5300ce, two Newtons and my MacBook Pro... various random peripherals - i've got a functioning QuickTake 100, for example...

i'm just a little bit addicted.
