It's always nice to have a theme for your home office. This is the first that we've seen that uses the comic book hero Superman as a way to showcase a really cool workstation, that features a lot of tech in a small space. Read on to find out more about Chris' Superman home office!

Chris has a lot of Macs in his home office. He's got everything from a PowerPC G5, to a 24-inch iMac, to a 13-inch MacBook Pro. All in all, this is an impressive array of tech that's all included in his corner home office, that doesn't look all that big. Chris managed to effectively use the available space for his home office. He's got at total of three monitors. The iMac has an additional monitor, which is perfect for reading, tweeting, and socail networking. It's a 19" ViewSonic monitor and it has been positioned vertically using a 3M Monitor Arm. That's an interesting use of a what today we'd call a smaller monitor. It makes us think of how we can reuse some of the smaller monitors that we've got laying around.

Chris uses a leveled home office design, which works really well. There are a lot of shelves, and each of them hold some tech. We especially like where the PowerPC G5 and MacBook Pro are sitting, on a sort of pedestal. It's interesting because usually people will shove desktops underneath their desks. The leveled approach works brilliantly for his iMac, where he smartly placed his Wacom tablet on one level, and then his Apple Wireless keyboard and Magic Mouse on the roll-out shelf just underneath.
