The less wires, the better
I need ideas to set up mine
>sun in your eyes
>only one monitor (can be acceptable for vidya station if good speakers are present)
Low level office drones have better battlestations.
This is an old picture of someone's battlestation who posted it in /bst/ a while back before upgrading it.
Anyone know what size these monitors are? Looks like 22 but I could be wrong.
>no one will rate anyways
it's a T430 and a Gnex
>gnex replaced with note 2
>mfw i had my screen on a PS2 as well before I ordered 2 of these from Amazon
>gimmicky hideous blue-LED razer shit-splat peripherals
mousepad, you say? why get an old, boring mousepad with rain drops or some crap on it when you can get a CUSTOM mousepad of YOUR CHOOSING for only TWO DOLLARS, FREE SHIPPING, ANY PICTURE YOU WANT, shipped to your door!? order now and be pleasantly surprised by the durability and quality of these amazing mousepads!
Most of you who claim to have minimalists set ups don't even know the meaning of minimalism.
>Having any branding visible.
>Peripherals with more than 2 colours
>Not having good, minimal, yet functional ID.
>Desk with more than 4 items on it.
>Not matching peripherals/tech.
>Having vibrant and complex desktop backgrounds.
Asides from none of these being minimal, they all suck too.
This thread might just be up my alley.
Spent all monies on Rayzur instead of a actual desktop
Being this new to /g/entoo
Look at this Distro new friend :)
(Shitty tablet on the right, I had it for free.. But Ockay for reading comics. Will replace it with a dell venue 8 pro or something like this...)
i mean its minimalist but the lighting makes it look like a big mess
You can have a lot of cables and still hide them, it's just a pain in the ass to do it.
I lold, that's just awesome.
Idk if mine is actually "minimalistic".
Also I'm looking for a new keyboard, with browns. Any experience with wasd keyboards? Are they any good?
They're aligned with the monitors, what the fuck man?
Finally a decent thread, Ill post my station and its progression. First off I find it hard to post in those bloaty 'muh gamen' threads.
My background: all I do is browse here and program, I do zero gaming.
This is a my setup at my old place, I loved the wall mounted monitor, it was on a full motion mount to and I could even rotate it vertically
Sorry about the large files, cant be bothered to edit them..
This second post is in my new studio.
Computer is an htpc mounted under the desk, if you guys actually wanna see It I suppose I could pull it out.
I really dont use a mouse that often as most of my time is spent in a shell. mouse = bloat
New station again at my current apt, this one includes a shitty arc touch mouse because I had to interact with some flash and needed a mouse :(
Last one, this is kinda where its at now, except I went back to the Poker II instead of the ducky mini
This is good imo, but that TV angle relative to the thing it's sitting on is weird.
Frontal angle does this alot of justice. Reminds me of the 2001 Monolith.
Also +100 for being french press masterrace.
I've been super busy lately so it's a fucking mess.
Also my camera is at the studio which is why I had to use a shitty camera for this.
I just want to know if the ASUS Xonar Essence One would be a good amp/dac for my headphones.
I don't have a battle station at home, but that's about to change very soon. So in the mean time here is my work one
Not that it is relevant at all but this wallpaper has made me laugh every day since I started using it. Hope it can do the same for someone else.
In after world's shittiest camera phone.
Any idea how to make the giant headphone cable less noticeable? It plugs in to the volume control thing on the desk, so it makes it difficult to just shove it all behind the desk.
Mayor changes incoming the next couple of weeks, sadly away from minimalistic though.
there's an audio wire coming out of the laptop, just obscured by the headphones
seems like it's battery powered though
wouldn't be surprised if there were bluetooth headphone amps though
How many others don't feel comfortable sharing their man caves off on this chinese picture forum? My den is the last place I can relax alone, I don't need people judging that environment too.
I really like the idea of having your battle station face a window, that's a neat idea I hadn't considered in the past and it looks very cool the way you've set it up in this pic.
Just get a desk with a back so you can't see any wires. Not difficult.
Even if not, monitors these days have cable routing that should hide those, then you can get a wireless keyboard and mouse if you don't want those wires either. Not sure about speakers but I'm sure wireless ones exist. Even if not, you can route them in a way that makes the speakers hide the wires if they're big enough.
I don't like wires but also have no need for wireless devices because the number of wires on my desk is minimal already. Sure there are loads under my desk but I'm not looking under there whilst using my desktop PC...
wow really? i saw someone posted something about cheap stuff from china having weird smells and 'outgassing', etc, but when i smelled my *rtsc*w mousepads all i detected was slight rubber odor. and i'd have to get really close in to smell it. you're concernin me tho... maybe they changed their ways! heheh..!
Nothing too fancy just your regular battlestation in a regular home.
Do you guys buy system cameras and clean for an hour to take these pictures? Pic related is my 'battlestation' taken with a shitty phone camera.
3/10 cheap table cheap window mold cheap curtain cheap blinds what the fuck is up with that metal bar with holes in it. I wouldn't be surprised if you literally live in a slasher motel. Also
>OS/CPU/Vendor stickers on laptop
>Wasting batteries on a mouse
They weren't bad, but definitely not too amazing. I'm thinking about gettingbthese bad boys, if I can get some more info.
Mine's shitty and not minimal but it's functional and cheap, still no second monitor but got my Macbook charger from some guy and i'm waiting for it to be shipped. Was thinking about getting a new desk on xmas too but seems like not gonna get enough money to that.
Nice crow. I want a crow now, no more CRTs.
Not really shit but looks like a sandstorm passed by
nigga watcha doin' with dat mouse
I don't think I could do minimalist since all my cables are out of control. Also I have too much random shit.
Tell your boss you need a monitor to that and a laptop stand. That is horrible.
That sucks. What cables are you using? I'm only using official SCART leads and they're all pretty great. Americans should use S-Video. If you're getting hum though it could be either a bad set or your house electrical setup.
I'm just using standard composite cables. I don't know much about all the technical stuff (although I'd like to). I feel kind of dumb though because now I have 3 big CRT TVs in my room and no idea how to get rid of them.
Can confirm macbook in pic 1 is legitimate apple and not a fake
4chan is run on 4 mac minis
also what is this shit
