Clean & Minimal German Mac Workstation Is Elegant

This simple and elegant workstation from Germany uses minimalism to enable the owner to set it up in a variety of spots. The simple lighting and corner desk makes it perfect to use as a daily workstation, without cluttering up the whole desk.

Tobias, like many users, has stopped using a desktop as his primary computer and uses his MacBook Pro instead. Using some high-quality peripherals from Apple allows him to make the most of his MacBook, thanks to an Apple Cinema display, Magic Mouse, and Bluetooth Keyboard.

Tech Hardware
-MacBook Pro
-iPad 3G
-iPhone 4
-Apple Bluetooth keyboard
-Apple Magic Mouse
-Apple 24" Cinema Display
-Mac Mini 2.4GHz 320 GB

Tobias uses a Mac Mini as his HTPC instead of running his laptop all of the time. This is a great idea, since laptops can easily overheat. His overall home office tech doesn't take up much space if he decides to change location. In fact, except for his Apple Cinema Display, most of it is easily portable, especially if he is on the go and needs some mobile computing.

This is basically the dream setup of any mobile computing user. All that's missing is a docking station, but with the available specs on the MacBook pro, there's a reason why Apple doesn't make one. All in all, it's tastefully set up and the minimal aspect sets it apart from other workstations.
