Pictures.  Carts, full of computers.

The new MBP and my 2007 iMac.



The five I'm currently working on setting up.



The cart with projector and Airport Extreme.

The cart is where you can store 30 MacBooks, charge them simultaneously, wheel them from class to class, lock them up and bolt to a wall for safe-keeping. It also provides a surface for a projector, printer, teacher laptop, whatever...

That is a ton of pressure.  If I were you I would be awake at night wondering how they were doing and feeling very sick at the thought of the possible theft of the entire cart.  I wouldn't get any sleep and would start hallucinating.  Just like in the movies.

But, everything looks great.  I'm very happy for you.

Life gets better. I'm calling it my birthday present from my boss. The Diocese delivered my 17" MacBook Pro today. It's a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 Quad processor, 500 GB 7200 HD, 8 GB RAM, and came with Final Cut Express. Can't wait to put it through its paces. The good news is I don't notice much difference in comfort level between it and the 15".

Funny what perspective a new day can bring. I just reopened this thread for the first time since I asked that question, and before I could even get to your response I looked at the picture and thought, "I'm a dummy, duh, that's a bunch of macs stored sideways and charging." :)

Btw, I'm with Bryan, I'd never get a sound sleep with that gear on my watch.

For Pieter, my fellow osx-aholic:

Yay, me!  Just ordered the 2.2GHz quad-core i7 Macbook Pro.  And because that isn't portable enough, I got a white 32GB iPad2 with 3G.  Laptop will be here by Tuesday and the iPad is delivering June 2.

That's crazy cool, dude! You'll love it. I'm still waiting on our iPad 2's to show up at school. Hope they come before summer.
