The last time we saw Ronny's home office in Germany, he was getting by with a slightly more modest setup: a single 21" iMac with a Mac Mini running a 24" Cinema Display. Since then, he's upgraded and gone to a dual 27" display setup. It might be surprising for some that the iMac is capable of driving two large monitors, but Ronny's setup proves it's not only possible, but looks fantastic if minimal-modern is your cup of tea. It's almost as if Ronny responded to criticism of his the sparse appearance of his previous setup by simply supersizing it.
For those curious about his wide, dual expanse wallpaper gracing his screens, the wallpaper is available here. In order to have the external 27-inch LED display at the same height as the iMac screen, he used a discontinued LaCie monitor stand, which seems the perfect height. Alternatively, you can probably find other things that will fit the bill.
The desk hails from IKEA, the Vika Amon/Vika Annefors desk, which adds an airy feel to his home office. We like how the shelves are partly open, allowing access to peripherals and connections, while providing air flow to components. For the spec-loving crowd, here's the details about Ronny's setup:
- iMac is a 3.2GHz i3
- 12GB of RAM
- 1TB hard drive
- ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card
