Mac Setups: Stand-up Mac Workstation

Dec 11, 2010 - 7 Comments

Here’s something you don’t see everyday: a stand up workstation featuring a MacBook Pro attached to two dual vertically orientated monitors.

There are plenty of studies that show the ergonomic benefits of having a standup computer desk and workstation. I’ve always been curious how it’d feel to work on a computer while standing, I’ve even seen some standup workstations that have treadmills so people can walk while working… cool idea but I don’t know if I’m coordinated enough!

I know this workstation belongs to one of our readers, but I can’t seem to remember where I found the image. If this is your setup, feel free to claim it in the comments.
