First things first, we'd immediately replace all our keyboards and mice with Bluetooth-enabled devices. For batteries, we recommend using Sanyo Enelops. They've tested well in our Unplggd labs and have been a personal favorite around the office.
Next, we'd pair down the desk to just 3 main areas: 1) the main computer, 2) a desk lamp, and 3) the landing station for our smartphone. We'd even go as far as to create a separate area for keys and wallet since they make more sense by the door than on a busy surface as the primary working desk.
A potential area for a fourth area would be reserved for audio junkies such as myself, in which case we'd make room for set of audiophile monitors or our favorite headphones.
Lastly, we'd address the issue of wire management, both nearby items and along the underside. Remember, even the slightest overlooked detail can ruin the perfect setup!
What are the bare essentials for your dream desk setup?
