    How do YOU access the mystical world of the internet? Show us where you work and play!

    I'll go first:
    Right now I'm using a Lenovo IdeaCentre B540 AIO as my main system and a ThinkPad X1 Carbon as my "on the go" machine.
    (I also have a Microsoft Surface RT which I use around the house, but is not pictured)

    Wow u guys have clean tables. I use an always connected TV for videos and games and my laptop for doing any work.

    Laptop - Dell Studio XPS

    Haha, well yellow was my first choice, but AT&T kept screwing up my order and I waited over a month and gave up and ordered the white one (came with the white charger).
    So yeah. Also, that little grey triangle case on the left houses white earbuds. haha

    Hmm. I have a netbook (my parents are sadists at heart), and a Lumia 620 with multiple backup batteries.

    That and I'm planning on buying a 3DS, Wii U and a Win8 desktop.

    2. I have faith the Bears will bounce back this coming season. The O-line was hopeless for a while so I'm hoping they fixed that now. I hope palandri jumps in for word

    Haha - I used to have a storage box by the side of my old desktop setup - if I knew anyone was coming over everything went in that box and the box went in a cupboard.
    Yeah cant wait for the season to start. Am missing my late Sunday nights - just hope they bring in some of the NFL stuff on the UK Xbox one

    My PC area is always a mess, mainly because it's also my guitar area.

    My baby is a custom built PC that I built myself, so here's some specs.
    2x Acer monitors.
    24" and 19"
    5.1 speakers (creative)
    My chair also has a 2.1 wireless speaker system.

    I've got a cheap Xenta keyboard (I don't like spending massive money on keyboards)
    Sharkoon Mouse (This one) I HIGHLY recommend this mouse.

    Inside we got;
    ASUS P8Z68
    i5-2310 Got it overclocked to 3.1GHz atm.
    16GB RAM 4x 4GB
    Samsung 830 SSD (256GB) - this is the item that turned my PC into a beast.
    2TB Western Digital HDD
    Cheap, standard card reader.
    MSI 6850.

    The only problem with having an SSD is that my user area takes up the space quickly, so I created a mirror link to my HDD.

    Nice setup Vega, regardless if that's considered a mess. Still looks good. I'd be worried about knocking that monitor off at the top though if that was me. I'd like to get a dual monitor setup one day.

    Haha oh I understand. If I knew someone was coming over and the bed was not good enough temp storage, I'd throw everything in that cupboard to the left. That thing is an absolute mess.

    Ah you're in the UK too. Awesome. Not too long until the new season starts. I'm looking forward to it.

    Right now, people are sleeping: will post pix later. But...
    NZXT Guardian 921 RB (Red) case.
    Windows 8 Pro w Media Center.
    AsRock P67 Pro3 SE mobo.
    Core-i5 2500K @ 3.3GHz (x4).
    GeForce GTX 650 1GB.
    1TB and 320GB HDDs, 2 DVD burners.
    Hmm... what else to point out?
    Maybe my older PC's monitor: HP w1907 (1440x900 native).

    No laptop on me, sorry.

    Phones: Lumia 822 (Black, Prototype) and Samsung Fascinate (2.3.5, Rooted with Stock ROM).
    Only use the Fascinate for A/V purpose and nothing more: games are for the PC and Lumia.
    Consoles/Handhelds: PS2 (Fat, softmodded) and 3DS XL (Red/Black). Wii is set up at another TV (white, also softmodded).

    I want to jailbreak WP8 already... >_>

    Continued from #21.

    Here's the tower, monitor, L822, and 3DS XL. PS2 to the right, below the TV, above the cable STB.

    Note that this is Win8.0: using Stardock's Start8. Image was taken with the Fascinate.

    I am in the process of moving, so my desk is less cluttered than usual, but I typically have the cords neater than this.

    What you are witnessing today is the office of a nerdy nerdy man.

    The silver desktop on the left inside the desk is my primary desktop, running Windows 7 and connected to my dual Dell Ultrasharp monitors. I have a 2408 in the middle, and a 1905 on the left. I built the PC myself and it was a decent machine, but it's starting to show it's age.

    The black tower on the floor is a frankenstein machine of random parts put together. It does all sorts of random things, depending on the projects that I'm involved in. It could be running a desktop PC, or Linux or who knows what. It is currently running Windows Server 2012 for testing. I connect it to the 19" monitor on the left side, as well as to my mouse and keyboard through a TrendNET 4 port KVM switch (the little blue box on top of the black PC).

    My laptop is sitting on the desktop. It's a Dell XPS, and I upgraded it to Windows 8.

    The box on the right is my home server. It is a beautiful, but overpriced Fractal Designs case. It is running Windows Home Server 2011 and has five 1.0 terabyte drives in a RAID6 configuration. It hosts my media files and backs up my client PCs.

    On the top shelf is an old JVC home stereo that is plugged into the audio out of my main PC, and sends the audio out through Bose 161 speakers on the corners.

    Beside the speaker on the right side is a TrendNET 16 port gigabit switch.

    Beside the stereo receiver is my old Acer Aspire 1 netbook. The battery is shot on it, so it doesn't do a good job as a portable anymore, but I installed Ubuntu Server and I am running a nginx web server installation on it.
