Introduction: My desktop

Hi and welcome to my first post on my personal blog! I will start of by showing you how my blogging desktop looks like and what cool hardware I got.

I have posted a couple of images of how it looks. I hope you see it well 🙂

My desktop environment consist of:

(Looking nice?!)

A little about all the stuff:

Mac

My mac, it was bought after my old laptop got retired. It was a 15,4″. I always have wanted to test out Mac to see how easy it is and if it meets my needs. I know a lot of designers use them, so they should be good. I have installed Windows XP on it with Bootcamp so I am covered if any Windows needs should come up, and I got Ubuntu and Vista in virtual machines 🙂

Keyboard

The keyboard was natural to buy with my mac. I planned the setup to be with a external keyboard, mice and screen. This is the thinnes keyboard I ever used, its wireless and works like a dream, can use it to control itunes anywhere in my apartment.

Mice

This is an old version of a mice from Microsoft. It works really well, been with me for several years now! I like the size of it, and the buttons to go forward and backwards in browsers is placed right were i want them.

Screen

The HP screen was bought after a little window shopping in a couple of stores. I really love the colors and the really high resolution on it. My macbook barely supports the 1920×1200 resolution with a minidvi to vga adapter. Yes I know, vga is old, but I had a really long vga cabel so I did go for it.

Caf̩ PC РNetbook

Asus Eee had to be tested. I did buy it because its even smaller than my 13″ macbook, you can put it in almost any bag you got and take it with you where ever you go.

(Here is a overview of my little dekstop)

Then you have seen my little blog desktop, if you got any questions about anything just ask me on twitter or in a comment here.

I also would love to see and hear about other bloggers tools/desktops, post a link in the comment area for all of us to see!

I hope you enjoyed this, take care and come back! 🙂

    Hi Mats! Found you through Twitter. Is the Asus EEE any good? I’m still working on PC and a 17″ flat screen. Intend to get a netbook soon.

    Hi Matthias! The Asus EEE 904 I have on my desktop is quite good, I even run Photoshop for a little editing. But it’s only good for email/browsing. I will recommend to get one of the 10″ models with 9.5 hours of battery, upgrade the RAM to 2GB. Then you can live with it 😉
