    …and my wife surprised me with a shiny new refurb 27″ iMac quad-core i5.

    …and 16GB of RAM.

    …and a Bamboo Capture tablet.

    My poor old G5 simply wasn’t up to handling the D7000 RAW/NEF format, so this is nice. Of course, my penance for this was to tear down and completely clean/reorganize/recable my home office space.

    It’s been a long weekend. More so because I can’t play with the new machine while moving everything around!

    Not yet. I’m still importing/organizing my photos. I plan to run at least one version in a virtual machine.

    Not a Mac person but I have had a Linux box somewhere on my network since 1997 or so. I had to go through the same PC upgrade when I went from a 20d to the current 7d. Twenty five mBytes is a big image to deal with.

    I had been holding out for a tablet too (great minds, etc) so I bought a CTH-470 at the same time. I’m really happy with the new setup but haven’t fully migrated to it because I’m spending a lot of time taking photographs (first world problems).

    So far, I’ve been fairly impressed by the Wacom Bamboo Capture. It supports the Mac OS X “Lion” gestures (multi-touch), and seems to be about the right size for me.

    And for $80ish, the price is right.
