Mac VP desk

This great multi-Mac setup belongs to Terry R., a Vice President at a leading cybersecurity firm. You’ll find a wide variety of gear and software in use, with three different Macs and a handful of iOS devices, all of which provide an interesting look into how Apple hardware is used at the executive level. Hardware shown includes:

  • MacBook Pro 13 (2012) – 2.9GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 750GB hard drive, OS X 10.8.2, MS Office for MAC
  • Apple Thunderbolt Display 27” display
  • Apple Magic Mouse
  • Apple Wireless Keyboard
  • Henge Dock

This first Mac is used primarily for standard day to day activities, including document development, emails, business development, proposals and program execution. Next up you’ll find a MacBook Pro:

  • MacBook Pro 15 (2011) – 2.2GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 1 TB hard drive, OS X 10.8.2
  • MS Office for MAC, Adobe Acrobat CS6, VMWare Fusion, Windows 7, Office 2010, Project, Vision, and Mathlab
  • Apple Magic Mouse
  • Apple Wireless Keyboard
  • Griffin Elevator stand

The MacBook Pro is used for emails, video, photographic, and mathematical processing for engineering, system designs, and business development, proposals, business management. Finally on the Mac front, there’s a MacBook Air, which is used for a variety of day to day activities, document development, emails, business development, proposals, and naturally also serves as the primary traveling computer.

You’ll find a handful of other Apple gear throughout the setup as well, including:

  • iPhone 4
  • iPad (2?) with Apple Wireless Keyboard
  • Apple TV 2 connected to an Asus 23″ LCD
  • Apple Time Capsule 3TB (out of view) used by all MacBooks for real time backup

Here’s another angle of the desk arrangement:

    Wow , What a showoff! It’s a mess, cables everywhere. Subtlety and minimalism is key to a productive and efficient workflow.

    Wow, you people are so negative. Is it a little excessive? Sure. Do you honestly need to bash him for his setup? Not at all.

      Patchouli, agreed. But unless a person runs a good moneymaking business, or is a truthseeker/ avid learner, they wouldnt know the use of multiple portals. I think of how some of the greats of the world kept their workspaces, lol, this space is tidy compared to many who are multi-M producers…

      As an employer, we look for the creative and reasoned. But then too a famous programmer whose workspace looked like Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, told me that some of his unsuccessful colleagues who claimed on their tablet alone, were like a carpenter with one saw, one hammer, one nail. lol

    Wow settle down everyone, it’s just a picture of someones desk! Everyone has a different desk, what does yours look like? Maybe you should post them too!

  6. toto says:

    Sorry VP if you’re reading this but… your desk makes me glad I don’t work for you. It makes you look like a complete, empty show off. I hope it’s just an impression.

  7. Homeland Security says:

    For a VP at a cybersecurity firm he does a sloppy job securing and locking his account!

  8. Jon says:

    4 keyboards? 2 mice, 1 touchscreen, 1 remote control. Are you serious?

  9. Madmin says:

    That’s just plain ridiculous! Why the f would you need 3 laptops and an ipad on 1 desk? oh Yeah, and a tv…

    Seems like there is not alot of working going in that office, just like my boss’ office. I bet 1 laptop for mail, 1 laptop for the newspapers, and one for watching the news videos…. epic fail

    i think he needs more screens on his table

  11. itO says:
