Mac Setups: The Investigator’s Desk & Truck Workstation
This weeks featured setup is a really great two-for-one arrangement from Tim N., an investigator who was able to replace a bunch of different gadgets and hardware with some killer Apple gear both in the office and on the road.
First up is his office setup, which includes some great Mac gear:
- iMac 27″ (2011)
- 24″ Dell monitor
- Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad
- iPad 3 64GB
- iPhone 4S 64GB
- Creative Labs 2.1 speakers
But now things get even more interesting, because that iPad 3 and iPhone 4S also go on the road into a customized Nissan Titan truck setup to help Tim with his job:
The iPad alone now carries the mobile tech burden and allowed or consolidating a bunch of old separate hardware and gadgets, eliminating clutter and costing less by replacing a Garmin Nuvi GPS unit, ExpressRC XM receiver, Motorola Q, Parrot 6100 Bluetooth, Blackberry, and an iPod Classic for music. So what replaced all those physical gadgets? Apps on the iPad of course! Critical apps include Motion X GPS Drive, Pandora, Spotify, CalenGoo, Skype, and the standard iOS app suite for email and messaging.
How great is it that just an iPad can do all that?
