Just finished setting up my His-and-Hers home office.

Still a little work to be done, but overall I like it:





Does anyone know what desks those are? They look like they're from the Expedit series at Ikea, but I can't find them on the website.

I love this setup and I want to do something exactly like it

New couch and desk. Rack has NAD surround receiver, 2x1Tb drives, DVD player, Mac Mini, MOTU 8Pre.

Wow, lovely luck there.

How much should I be looking at spending on a semi-decent tablet?
Because I don't have 1300 to splash out just before I start uni.

I like big work areas, so I bought a dining table from Ikea. I also really hate cable clutter.

Nope, it's apparently a Bernhardt couch I just bought cheap from work because we are moving buildings and got rid of a bunch of stuff. Funny thing was I always thought it was brown but when I got it in the back of the ute under a different light I found out it's a dark purple.

nbzl posted:

They're Hercules hangers and they have little safety bars which lock into place when there is a guitar in them. They are attached to a giant piece of hardwood and bolted through the back with t-bolts. No way it's falling off the wall, I could hang off it if I wanted.

Here's some better shots.

It's been a quiet bank holiday Sunday so I decided to have a quick go at tackling my poo poo living.

Here's the effort I put in round he back. I drilled two screws into the desk to support my power station thing, and for the wires I just cable tied the gently caress out of them and hung them into place using a piece of string I found.



It was a bit of a lovely job to be honest and I could have done better but who cares; this is the view from the front:

There are whole forums out there that can advise you better than i can. Start here or here.

I`d reccomend trying one out first in pc world or somewhere that does display models.

Basically you are looking at 600-900 for a consumer tablet and 1k-2k for a business model.

The TX2 i had was great, but the build quality is lacking and the screen is so shiny you cant see a thing in daylight. The battery life was abysmal, but the only thing that really let me down was HP consumer support.
I loved it when it worked. It was my buddy, i took it everywhere. Its the best 'bang for buck' tablet out there.

I would reccomend one that just works off a pen, not a touchscreen. Touchscreens are always too shiny.

What's funny is, everyone that I work with drinks Mountain Dew and I've never let my lips touch the stuff.

I figure, it has the word "Dew" in it and I hate the way Honey Dew tastes.

I think there is a variation on this in my region: Diet Pepsi. In college, all my professors and fellow students, myself included, lived on Diet Pepsi. I thought it was just a computer science nerd thing, but most people drink the stuff constantly where I work. (not a software company)

I mainly want one so when an equation or diagramme comes up in a lecture at uni I can just sketch it down. I'm trying to chose between that and a netbook with a Wacom bamboo riding shotgun at the moment. If I can afford the Tablet, I'll get one when Windows 7 comes out so I can use the math input panel.

If you're looking for a detailed, sharp picture, I can't provide that. I do promise she has a face, though, and that the color is nice and bright. It does have a "powdered" look, though.

Presumably it has to be attached to a monitor rather than floating in space between them

Ah yeah; there's a space between the monitors, Apple haven't quite got the anti gravity thing happening just yet.

And they're a pair of 30"s.

Don't get me wrong, it's sleek and modern and clean and all, but part of the reason it looks so striking is because of how overexposed the pic is.
