Journal GateGuy's Journal: Mac Pro

Last Sunday (January 20, 2008) I purchased a Mac Pro (2x quad 2.8Ghz, 2G ram). I also purchased a 23" cinema display, iPod Touch (16G), iPod Nano (8G), ElGato eyeTV2, 3 applecares and an Airport Extreme card.

This puppy rocks for ripping DvDs. I use MacTheRipper to rip the DvD and then use Handbrake to transcode it into the iPod Touch format. For the Clint Eastwood movie 'A Fist Full of Dollars', the ripping took 15 minutes and the transcoding took 13 minutes.
