Yeah, yeah. We're always hearing about how your home computer—with it's DVD drive and connectivity to Hulu and Netflix—can completely replace your TV screen and cable box. We've just never seen it done like this...

We love the way the screen that's front-and-center in Flickr user mdparaiso's home theater setup makes itself useful as both a movie screen and a computer monitor.

That sideboard that the TV is visually resting upon is a multi-purpose hub for this small, cool space dweller. Inside and around it, you'll find: A Playstation 3, a 13-inch Apple MacBook, a Lenovo T61, Polk RM-series speakers, a Samsung TV/Monitor, a Logitech diNovo Bluetooth keyboard (with built-in touchpad), a Logitech Harmony 550 remote and an Apple iPhone 3G.

It's a great inspiration to other small-space renters to forget trying to carve out a dedicated home office and go for a multi-purpose living room instead. You can make it work!
