    That's funny, I think I have two of the ones on the left. My husband likes a desk setup like that. I prefer to work on the sofa with my laptop on my knee.

    LoL I knew someone would notice!!! hehe well when the acer netbooks first came out I ran to get one.... I didnt not even think to ask what color it was. Open it up at home and its PINK!!!! So instead of the 15% restocking fee I just "gave" this one to girlfriend (I know pink is still pink but it NEVER leaves the house.)

    Yeah its a 20" Acer monitor I almost bought 2 but I actually like having a non widescreen monitor as well. It seems easier to work on text documents for me on a regular width screen.



    And that shining thing on the top shelf is just an old license plate that is catching some reflection

    It was not expensive at all

    Ikea Mikael Desk - $80
    Ikea Chair - $70
    Ikea Wall Shelf - $20
    2nd Monitor - $100

    The hardest part is being fortunate enough to have a partner or even parents who are ok with you taking over the dining room :) (Luckily the Girlfriend knows the deal and is ok with it, hell, she encouraged it)

    I like it.. mine is a bit different, but not necessarily any better.

    I've got my main system with two monitors. Laptop in the other room. A couple of oldies but goodies sitting close by, all running XP. Havn't made the jump to Vista until I have no other choice. And yeah, what the shiny thing on the top shelf.
