Discussion on: Workspace Wednesday: Show me pics of your at-home setup

I used to have my telework stuff on the dining room table but it looks like we're in this for the long run (months, and when the office reopens they'll have a fraction of the staff on site), so I spent a few hours Saturday making room in the small bedroom (which has no bed). Telework setup is on the left:

  • 2x 24" monitors
  • 1 laptop (left) for Microsoft Teams and a few other things (work bandwidth is limited, so while they're working on increasing capacity they ask that we do not use the work network for online meetings, training/tutorial videos, etc.)
  • 1 laptop (right - lid closed) - that's the laptop from work and the only thing that's theirs (plus the phone, I guess).
  • Kinesis Freestyle keyboard
  • Evoluent VerticalMouse 4

On the right is my personal computer setup. 2011 27" iMac with two 27" Thunderbolt monitors. Lower-right corner there's a turntable, because heavy metal. :) I find it's a good way to ensure I get up and move relatively frequently, having to change sides or records.
