Your computer!?

Thought this would be an interesting thread (slightly geeky i admit).
Where do you surf slkworld from? Take a picture of your computer and place you surf from.
Here is a pic of my desk in work with slkworld running.

, alot of people think that way, either that or prison, we have a ugly brown 7 feet fence surrounding the entire building, no company signs, nothing. I've heard all kinds of comments when I go to lunch, from insane asylum, high profile prison, secret services, area 51 type of building. We have people peek thru the fence to catch a glimpse of what is in the building, my co-workers and I are tempted to make funny faces, and shake as if we are possesed to see their reactions. I can't tell you, if I did I will have to kill you.

At home I have two PCs running XP, one running Vista, one running linux and a laptop also running XP. At work, various different desktops. I'm not taking pictures of all of them

The one I use most now at home is the one I built last month running Vista 64 bit Ultimate. The Dell 30" widescreen 2520x1620 LCD monitor is awesome.

I think it's about time to upgrade my desktop computer. It's a 8088 processor, running at 12hz, 64kb ram, with DOS 5 software. I did have one like that about 20 years ago. My first computer was a NEW Apple IIe back in 1981. I've spent a ton, always upgrading. I currently use a HP laptop with Windows Vista. I hardly use my desktop and will only upgrade to a newer laptop as better systems come out. Chances are, I'll never buy another desktop system.

I spend most of my SLKWorld time surfing from work, but I do some at home after the wife goes to bed and occasionaly throughout the day when I'm off.

This is work:

This is home:

Home.jpg

The home setup is very temporary, I normally have a 17" flatscreen atop a docking station...still trying to get adjusted to the move.

Is the Dell still the best 30" ?

I'll be getting something similar soon and noticed a few people mentioning the apple is a good screen. Need to read up on it alot yet.
