My dining room table and dining room chair.

When my wife is meeting a client, I need to use my bed.

My apartment is not cut out to be an office.

I actually prefer my dining room when it's quiet at home. More airy and spread out.

I paid $25 for it just under 2 years ago. I don't think it was any sort of special sale, I just think prices for logitech stuff have been at least retail price lately.
Its pretty amazing how in a couple of years Logitech went from being another cheap company to a name brand. Kind of like what's happening to anker (although maybe diff bc many of their products are Chinese standard with their name slapped on)

Say what now? Logitech is one of the oldest and most well established computer accessory brands out there. They have higher end and lower end stuff, but never really anything as low end as the chinese stuff - including Anker (which I'm a big fan of).

You would only need one of those monitors for your browser and the rest can be on regular monitors.

I beat you on the tabs-I have 448 (!) open. How do I manage so many? They are open in Firefox using the Simple Tab Groups add-on. Even with all those tabs it is only using 2,000 MB RAM. Besides the other reasons I prefer FF over Chrome I would use FF for this add-on alone.

On this topic, Tree Style Tab and Multi-Account Containers are 2 other very useful FF add-ons

Forget manage, why would you ever need that many open? Do you just never close anything you open “in case you need it again later”?

Over 100 are to various tariff pages from a bunch of utilities. A bunch mis are to basis energy market related pages. Abbott 50 are to regulatory agencies. Another bunch are personal stuff and internal business stuff. Once I am using this already I am not so careful about keeping tab count low.

Many items like the mouse a few have in common. The mount is something which differs and makes a big difference. The advantage of mine is that it is height adjustable and can be easily used sitting or standing and the keyboard tray helps with that.

So you're not really using hundreds on a daily basis. It's more like a library of references you may need, easily available at your fingertips, correct? Kind of like someone who keeps many seforim in OH open, "just in case".

Picture yourself in the 1960s in a musty office with hundreds of dusty tomes in every possible location...  I wonder what your "desktop setup " would look like. Phonograph, typewriter...
Topic for a new thread... ;)

Seems like you are using them more like bookmarks than anything else. Which only works because of tab groups. I actually switched from FF to Chrome when they killed the tab groups feature, I think I should try the addon and see if it works for me.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

What's the height range?
I have one of these at my office but I find it doesn't quite have the range I'd like. It would probably work better for someone a little shorter than me.
