A Showcase of Workstations that’ll Make You Jealous

Whether you’re a designer, developer, animator, or blogger, your workstation plays a major role in how you get things done. Some of us like a neat, clean, and inspiring workspace, while others require a crazy over-the-top hardware configuration.

In this article, we’ve compiled a showcase of photos that will give you workstation envy. The thing about workstations is that even if you have a nice one, seeing another awesome setup can make you a bit jealous.

    Whoh… Now what’s what being a geek means. I greatly enjoy watching such workstations, it keeps me motivated to work day by day, perhaps someday I’ll get such workstation on my own.

    I have two screens and I can see why some people might need a third one. But what’s the point in having more than three screens? It’s just ridiculous, I might even say retarded. Stop showing off the 8 screens because at the end of the day we all know you’ll just use it to watch porn.

    Most of them look like the workstation of a casino supervisor who happens to be gay! its just theyre so messy. but just a few of them look professional. cause a professional designer wouldnt let its working environment negatively affect his creativity or limit the kinds of styles he can think about.
    loved the grass thing. my next project needs a peaceful design, and that grass could help me a lot through it!

    I don’t see any purpose of having more than one LCD. Time of moving your head and getting focus to other monitor is same, as switching windows. Some time ago I had 2 monitors, but its really hard to work that way, so I sold smaller one. One 27″ fullhd is enough for me :)

    I think the best workplace is the one with windows above head.

    I used to have a dual monitor setup before I used Macs but somehow I can work just fine on one in Mac OS X.

    The funny thing is I hardly use Expose. I just [cmd] + [tab] to the app I need to work in and then [cmd] + [~] to cycle thought the windows.

    I actually think having more than two monitors can be counter productive. I think that focusing on one thing at a time gives you better results, faster.

    Plus using less monitors saves the planet :P.

      It all depends on what you’re doing, once you have wide screen you’ll find square are well square. And the better montiors do rotate just like in the 9th picture from the bottom.

    Can’t help but notice the over abundance of Macs in this series. Having an apple product does not automatically make your workspace “fantastic.” Some of these are legitimate (skylights, anyone?), but many of these are just glamour shots of Apple hardware.

    And I have to agree with Cotswolds: Always just want one more monitor. I have two, plus a 30″ TV, and I’m constantly moving back and forth between them all.

    Seriously Larry? 37 monitors? LMAO I’m a computer programmer and I use 3 monitors, and make 6 figs. Assuming you had 8 computers on a kvm switch, each with 2 graphics cards with dual output, that’s still only 32 monitors capable of being used. So I guess you have like what, 9 or 10 computers running at the same time? I’d hate to get your electric bill… But being logical, I know you’re just trying to show off and make people think you’re cool. Some will believe you, but those who know anything about technology, bills and liars on the internet will see right through this. BTW, almost all of these setups are lame.

    I’m surprised at the quantity over quality approach taken with most of these. Looking over the screens used, presumably, for visual design I’m shocked at the number of cheap TN panels. Yes, Apple fanboys, that includes the iMacs.

    I saw one setup (#1) with Samsung SM206BW screens, which are about as good as TN gets, but if we’re working on visual design we should be spending our hard-earned on good quality IPS panels with decent colour reproduction.

Pure and simple to keep you focused, but cosy though. Like the one with the tree in the room … would love to work there.

    Interesting, but lousy ergonomics! If any of you are motivated to upgrade your workstations be sure to investigate proper ergonomics beforehand. Many of these users are suffering from back pain, neck pain, eye strain and other repetitive motions disorders. Flash isn’t always comfortable or productive.

    Multiple screens come in really handy when you have to utilize multiple apps to complete consolidated task.
    For example, I use 3 monitors:

    Monitor 1- Hosted Databases for multiple client sites (45+)
    Monitor 2- Test Environment Virtual Machine/Production VM
    Monitor 3- Help desk software/email/web browsing

    I can’t imagine having to do all that w/ fewer than say 2 monitors.

      Also, 28 and 30 are the same bloody workstation with different lighting…

      Multiple screens are NOT the be-all end-all of workstation envy. They’re a common thing when you’re talking about a “work”station.

    Is it sad that I don’t find many of these workstations impressive? I have 4 monitors and a 55 Inch LED TV. Also my laptop.

    Multiple screens are usually good for working with media, security camera/software, or stock trading, etc. Also if you want to see your music playlist while playing a game and display your social networking feeds. I definitely recommend multiple monitors for multi-taskers. :D

    There are quite a few tasks in product development and visualization that require a multiple screen setup. For instance, when it comes to preparing visuals for immersive applications to be displayed on a gigapixel powerwall or CAVE, not every developer will have one of those connected to his workstation.

    I’m happy to confine myself to the macbook-and-cinema-display solution though.

Picard than maybe other than that 20+ ” inches is more than enough. And regarding running db software + Citrix / VM / rdp + ticketing tools + help desk software and whatever else you can think of, it can be done on 1 screen, 17″, worked like this for some time for a major IT company ;)

    Some of these are very pretty. But I don’t like multiple screens myself, even though I’m a programmer. Anything other than the one two feet in front of me is too far away, or too distorted by the viewing angle. They’re over rated.

    Multiple screens are an absolute must if you are using more than one application at a time and want to be productive. For instance if you writing a document and in order to do that need to find information on the web, in other emails and perhaps from other documents. Multiple screens lets you view all information at the same time and saves you from having to flick back and forth between applications all the time.

    Linux and Mac OSX also comes natively with virtual desktops so you can have several complete desktops that you can easily switch between. That’s a great feature for power users.

    I’m a developer and have three monitors with 12 virtual desktops. So in reality access to 36 monitors when working but only three at a time. But three is just not enough for me so I’ve been looking to go to six monitors.
