Chris' 5 Terabyte Workstation

Chris' 5 Terabyte Workstation

This workstation is packed with devices that anyone would love. It's based around an Apple iMac 27" and can easily fit into a corner of many rooms. The iMac's storage is extended thanks to multiple external hard drives. Chris got himself a few choice input devices to maximize the use of his iMac.

Chris is a designer based out of Warsaw, Poland and the workhorse of his home office setup is his 27" iMac. He's customized his setup with 5 terabytes of extra storage available, thanks to a number of hard drives, which were given the Apple customization with a few strategically placed stickers. He's also got a Wacom Intuos4 Large tablet with stylus and Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and Magic mouse as input devices.

Chris uses Sennheiser HD 555 headphones for both music and movie watching (they're listed at $170 but you can find them for $95 on Amazon). Other details include a Moleskine sketchbook, some pens, as well as some Nikon camera lenses ontop of his desk.

His desktop wallpaper is based upon some Supergirl artwork by Abraão Lucas and is available here. The standout device in this workstation is the Wacom tablet, which must make using his iMac easy. We've always wanted to use one of these and it's good that they have come down in price significantly, although the Wacom Cintiq is still out of our price range.
