Default Finally got my new desk setup!

I actually got this a few days ago and put it together. But today I finally had some time to move my stuff from one room to this one and setup my office area. I've still got to get some wire ties and hide the cables a bit better. But overall I'm happy that it's just big enough to house everything I need

Please don't give me grief about the mismatched monitors. It pisses me off too and sometime I'll get around to getting matching displays Also, ignore the blinds (they were there when I moved in and haven't gotten around to buying new ones yet).

Think it looks alright so far?

Might want to invest in some zip ties.

I agree with you and will be picking some up tonight when I go shopping.

Thanks man!

I work from home managing content on several websites, however, I also provide network/tech support and need to have access to multiple OS's to troubleshoot. I've got parallels on my Mac running XP and 7 however my MBP only has 4gigs of ram and doing multiple virtual machines is difficult on it. So I've got a tri boot setup on my desktop as well.

Yes, but with Windows 7 Ultimate it gets really sluggish. XP runs like a dream but I have virtually no memory left on 7. I dropped my allocated memory to 1.5GB for it so I'd free up about 500MB of memory and it still gets slow when I've got a zillion tabs open and running apps.

Thanks, I didn't even think of just posting that info.



Which gen are you running and do you use parallels too? I'm extremely impressed with the overall experience it offers.
