I was testing an HP port replicator and thought I would see how it feels to have more screens.

So there we have it, Four screens and a messy desk. Now to work out if I can keep it like this, guessing not.

Only four measley screens?!? ;-)

That's nothing, this new Mac Pro (not mine unfortunately) is running six 27inch displays, and still has a HDMI port free, although they are "a bit difficult" t use in this arrangement. :-)

To quote the TV advert: "Boys and their decks". ;-)

True it looks clean, only because the screens hide the cables and the piles of paper I pushed out of the way to fit them on the desk.
How do you use that Mac workstation? Do you need to hang from a movable ceiling gantry?

Well, since the keyboard and mouse are towards the front of the phont, so I guess you lie down between the front-most screens ... with the right controller it could be great for playing 3D Winter Sports Skeleton games. ;-)

Nice and you could pretend that the Mac pro was a helmet too.
