What home setup do you have?


#1
I am currently considering getting rid of my iMac and buying a higher spec MacBook and monitor setup. My iMac is the 2009 24" model and has been upgraded to the highest spec.

I'm just curious to see what hardware setup everyone else uses at home? Even better, post some pics!

Oh.... I didn't realise we were going into all the small stuff....

nexus 7
hp touchpad running android :)
moto g mobile phone... seriously don't need anything more powerful as it's not like I use it for games and it's really good at making phone calls :).
Canon A4 printer
Canon A3 printer
Canon A2 printer - don't use this much now though as it's more of a left over from uni
Spyder 3 Elite screen calibrator - which will hopefully work with windows 10 or it will need replacing :(
UPS - everyone with a computer should have this in case of power cuts
HP ADF scanner (document scanner)
Canon flatbed scanner
Wacom Intuos 3 A5 Wide Limited Edition (ie the black one :))
Wacom Intuos 4 A3 - it's a bit too big for my desk
3D Connexion SpaceNavigator - plan to upgrade that in near future
Siemens Gigaset Voip Phone system for work number
Load of network stuff like switch, router, wifi bridge
3 or 4 external hard drives
lost count of how many usb sticks I've got

Trying to think if I've missed anything.... probably have because I like tech/pc's in general but I know I haven't forgotten any apple stuff, I only have an iPod Nano v1 lol

Some of the stuff is actually getting on in tech terms (anything over 6 months is old lol) but there's no point replacing them because they do the job just fine or I'm finding less need to use them (printers for example)
