      I have been wanting to start a thread about this for a while. Not just because it's fun to see others setups, but also to get inspired, and inspire other to improve their setup. I read this post on twoplustwo about How to make a setup with good ergonomics and I got inspired to improve my setup from just playing on my laptop. So I bought a HDMI-stick and a keyboard, so I could connect my Mac to a monitor (TV-screen).

      I know it's not a baller setup, but it sure is better than just sitting with a laptop, now I can play 12 tables without even overlapping.

      Nice setup JC. There's already a thread on that btw Poker setup [+Add your setup]

      And there was at least on or two more I think.

      SpeedFanatic: That's quite a mess. :f_biggrin: Awesome table tho w the height adjustment. I was thinking of something like that too. How much did it cost approx?

      Btw, all your setups lack one very important thing - the pee bottle.

      @Speedfanat1c: As said it's just a TV-screen, but i works :D Yours seems pretty nice as well, but as mentioned quite messy ;) For some reason I just need to have my desk clean!

      @NightFrostaSS: Sorry, did not see that there already were such a thread, would just have bumped it then.

      Yeah, those boxes under monitors not looking nice, I should probably go to the some furniture factory and order nice boxes of wood. Those are needed to increace the height. Because when standing its too low. Keyboard is ok at this height. If the table max height would be higher, then keyboard would bee too high.

      Also there is other things which I need, those tables - because I will forget to use them otherwise :) papers under mouse and keyboard - those are because they feel warmer than table surface, (when touch table surface, hands become cold ). And so on. I cannot find way to make it cleaner :)

      It costs about 1000-1200 LTL (~300 EUR). They can write invoice and you can get back VAT when buying as the company at least in Lithuania.

      Btw it comes without table surface in the company which link I gave, but surface you can get for 30-40 LTL at other shop.

      I don't see any link, is it a new table you need, or did I get it wrong?

      well unless your laptop video card has dual ports which i doubt, u cant plug in 2 monitors...

      u could use an external monitor + your laptop monitor, thats pretty easy

      well im no computer grandmaster either :D

      well, just plug in the VGA connector (the one with 15 pins - small "dots" :D ) from your external monitor to your laptop - most of laptops have 1 connector for them...

      and it should work :)

      then u need to set it up to use 2 parralel dual monitors, so (depends on if u have vista/7/8/XP)

      try this and go to like 8 minutes the guy explins it

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtzAQ1hao7U

      just plug in external monitor, go to settings - screen settings, click on the #2 monitor, so both of them are highlighted - choose a position in which they will be arranged and click on smthg like "extend desktop to 2nd monitor"

      and u should be okay
