Nice πŸ˜„, The "B&W" workstation looks simple. I can see a laptop is connected to Monitor and then also has another PC , So how can both laptop and PC can be controlled by only one mouse ?

I have logitech M720 Triathlon mouse and MK850 keyboard - it has 3 Bluetooth profiles. Really happy with it. The mouse scroll wheel can be a bit loud, but there is a button to silence the grrr grrr grrr. TBH - the scroll noise doesn't bother me - it bothered my co-workers when I still had co-workers.

A KVM, I assume. I use one to switch my keyboard and two monitors between my employer’s laptop and my much studlier personal workstation. It can also switch audio, but I have yet to find one that can switch random usb devices like cameras reliably and not just HIDs.

Maybe "Mouse without Borders" or any other similar software

To share kb/mouse across PCs - try Input Director (free), Synergy, or Multiplicity.

Looks like Logitech MX Master 3 which can take advantage of Logitech Flow software. Can use one mouse seamlessly on multiple devices.

This workstation stood out to me too!

I use a USB hub to my monitor, which lets me use peripherals between PC and MacBook with a press of a button. Love it!

Some (10?) years ago I've tried every solution I could find. Synergy was by far the best one and has worked flawlessly ever since. Supports Win/Mac/Linux. Haven't used Synergy the last couple of years but even Android was unofficially supported.

Here is my setup, not very comfortable to focus, but a bit better for health

Haha, I love this.

I was always wondering how can I make the most from running and learn coding at the same time. You inspired me :)

I had to add a workspace for my wife (she's a teacher) during the COVID school shutdown. It cut my office space in half but at least my desk situation remained the same and now that she's back at school, I gained a second workspace. 😁.had a view of the city

I can tell you exactly what's wrong with the "there's gotta be something wrong with that guy's" guy -- the same thing that's wrong with a lot of us -- a complete lack of space and needing to make do with what we've got.

God these names were funny af, especially the "neck pain" workstation. They all look great, thanks for the laugh!

number 1 is just beautiful! (though I think I'd stare at the view all day long instead of working 😁)

This is mine: mouse and keyboard on the left can control both the desktop pc and the laptop in the corner, through a kvm switch. During the lockdown, my wife worked from home too: she loves my 21:9 monitor so she used it with her work laptop, while I was on the 3-display setup on the right.

Hahaha #13 was the best one πŸ˜‚ besides that I started feeling left out of the "cool workstations" crew. I only have an standing desk, my laptop and a small Smart TV being used as a secondary screen xD
