    Here is my office space. It also doubles as warehouse storage. The beauty of a stand up desk is that I can cram a ton of boxes under it.

    In case anyone is curious, that is one of those electric bug rackets under the desk. I HATE fruit flies. I have a ton of plants in my house and as soon as I see a fruit fly it has to go, the racket makes short work of them.

    Monitors if anyone wants to know, from left to right. 30" Old a$$ 2560x1600 in portrait, 34" 3440x1440, 27" 3840x2160 in portrait. I feel like I have enough for now, although I would love to replace that old 30" with another 4k portrait. Now I can have everything open at all times.

    Fun thread!

    Multiple monitors definitely help when you're working on the web development stuff--although I have to admit, I probably would have been fine without the third external monitor...

    But hey, whatever. Once you get used to more work space, it's hard to go back~

    Just a simple MacBook air hooked up to mechanical keyboard and an external mouse.

    Planning to build a dual monitor PC in the coming months.

    Two things:

    1) 4K 40” wasn’t a search term I knew existed until today. I also hadn’t considered moving up from my two 24” monitors before. I blame you for an impending purchase and subsequent ear bashing from my wife.

    2) I feel a lot less smart now I’ve seen your course outline. Haha.


    EDIT: Wow... that’s much cheaper than I thought:

    I picked up this samsung mu6300 for about $300 last November, from Newegg. Totally worth it. Some trade offs in picture quality (the blacks aren't so great), but the real estate is great for productivity.

    The JVC also looks reasonable for the money.

    Another big advantage over a dual monitor setup is the improvement in ergonomics. You don't have to look to the side as frequently, provided you position the monitor far enough away.

    Just moved to a new studio apartment, this is the work corner. Tried to keep anything non work related away, hoping it helps my brain associate this area with work when I sit down.

    Andy, that's a TV, not a computer monitor. I'm sure it works great for watching movies, but it might not have the bandwidth/resolution you need for crisp computer images, text, etc. It's digital so it SHOULD work, but ... I would go check it out in-person and try hooking it up to your laptop before you buy.

    Mobile camera has the resolution of a toaster, but you get the picture.
    Some real nice setups posted in this thread!

    1) bilionaires ( Steve Jobs, whoever ) started like this so you are on the right path..

    my setup is the same so no need to show it



    2) MJ is online all the day watching stats , hunting the bad guys and so on

    i guess his setup is something like this
