Mac Setups: Sideways MacBook Pro 15″ with a Mac Pro

Remember how you can rotate a Macs screen orientation? Here’s a Mac setup that features just that… with a MacBook Pro. This a MacBook Pro 15″ sitting on its side next to an Apple Cinema Display hooked up to a Mac Pro, and from the looks of it the screens fit perfectly together. The iPad doesn’t quite fit in but it’s a nice addition nonetheless.

Now before you go trying this on your own, it’s worth mentioning that the photographer swapped an SSD into the MacBook Pro “since the platters in an HDD can’t much handle being sideways” so you’ll want to consider that before rotating your MacBook Pro 90°.

    interesting, as long as hdds work either vertically or horizontally turned/built in there should be no problem at all…

    I like how the keyboard is light up, when obviously they’re not gonna be typing on it sideways.

    Which wallpaper is that?

  5. […] Note: This does have some practical use, as you can see in a recent Mac setup post showing a MacBook Pro sideways next to a Cinema Display. […]
