1) Abraham’s Setup

Laptop setups

Starting with Abraham from Texas and his gaming setup, he uses the setup for gaming schoolwork and making youtube videos.

So for this type of setup Abraham has his laptop off to the side, but the lid is open so I’m going to assume he uses it as a secondary display as well, but he games and pretty much does everything on his external 25-inch 75-hertz monitor from HP

He’s using the Anne Pro 2 keyboard with the Glorious Model O gaming mouse and a few fake plants for a bit of decoration.

2) Finn’s Setup

laptop setup

Here’s a more simple and clean approach to a laptop setup from Finn, he’s got a really nice brick wallpaper on the wall to give the setup a bit of personality and he mounted both his MacBook and monitor to the same BONTEC Monitor Arm Mount.

This allows him to still use a laptop whenever he wants and since it’s not secured on the mount itself he can easily disconnect the laptop and take it with him

Finn uses the setup for music production photo editing and some school work, he’s stuck to the minimal and clean look by going with wireless peripherals and the only other thing on the desk is the EUFY Genie speakers and his old mouse box that’s holding a few miscellaneous items.

3) Gavin’s Setup

On the complete opposite side of the spectrum, we have Gavin’s gaming and streaming setup.

The desk is actually made up of two IKEA Linmon tabletops combined with the EKET cabinets and a few legs for support.

He’s got a 24-inch 144Hz monitor as the primary and a 24 inch 60Hz in vertical mode as a secondary.

laptop setups

Gavin made really good use of space on his desk by adding a monitor riser for both his main monitor and even his laptop, which gave him some extra storage space underneath.

He uses a Razer Blackwidow Elite keyboard and Razer Basilisk V2 mouse, those keycaps have some pretty cool anime girls on them.

4) Jepi’s Setup

This is Jepi’s setup from Italy and he uses this for gaming, streaming, and watching videos, he went with this floating look by mounting both his monitor and laptop to the desk

For peripherals, he’s using the Drevo Blademaster TE cherry MX silver keyboard that he painted in white to match the setup’s color scheme and he even skinned his Logitech G502 Hero mouse as well.

I love the dedication here for audio he’s using the LG hi-fi speakers that he mounted beautifully on the top.

Aside from the speakers he also owns a pair of Steelseries Arctis 3 headphones that he keeps behind this tablet and a bearing microphone hooked up to a boom arm.

I really like how he kept everything so organized and because he doesn’t have any storage cabinets or drawers underneath the desk he hung up a few pinboards against the wall.

5) Jon Salvini’s Setup

LAPTOP SETUPS

Here’s the first double-stack compact laptop setup in this list from Jon who is a swimming pool designer from Sacramento, he built the setup for 3D animation, research, and gaming.

So we got a 24-inch on the bottom and a 32-inch up top that’s mounted against the wall covered with that 3d art panels and we have to give some credit to John because a lot of people probably would have skipped covering the corners but John put in the extra effort.

LAPTOP SETUPS

So at this point, you guys are probably wondering where is the laptop well since he has two monitors he doesn’t really need to use a laptop other than to power it on, so he stores it underneath the desk when not in use.

But he does have a laptop stand, in some cases where he wants to keep the laptop on the desk.

9) Gelo’s Setup

laptop setups

This setup is from the Philippines for editing, graphic design, and some gaming, so this layout is a little different compared to the other setups.

He has a 17-inch ROG laptop in the center with a 49-inch smart tv mounted against the wall so he uses the laptop as the main display while the tv is secondary.

Most laptop owners usually just tuck away the laptop and use it mainly to just power this setup but in Gelo’s case, the laptop is part of the setup, from a functionality standpoint I can see this setup working really well.

10) Rens’s Setup

This setup is from the Netherlands and is an awesome music production setup, Rens likes making music with fl studio and this is the setup that makes it happen.

The setup is sandwiched by two hefty Yamaha HS8 speakers that he was smart enough to put on stands to avoid taking up extra space on the desk and putting the speakers at ear level.

11) Sascha’s Setup

laptop setups

the very first laptop powered ultra-white setup from Sash who resides in Germany, he’s using a 34-inch ultrawide from MSI that he hooked up to his beefy Alienware 51M gaming laptop that has a dedicated cooler underneath and probably for good reason because he’s got a 9900k in there with an RTX 2080.

12) Thomas’s Setup

laptop setups

This setup is from Canada and, believe it or not, but this entire setup was built on a budget, a lot of the stuff Thomas bought is second-hand or already owned before.

This entire room is not only a gaming den but it’s also a place where Thomas can train his students for boxing, MMA, and kickboxing.

So the main setup is powered by his MSI GT80 gaming laptop which is then hooked up to a 65-inch 4k tv up top.

laptop setups

At this point, you guys are probably wondering how does he use the setup, since he doesn’t have a chair and the tv is mounted too high up, well it’s actually a couch gaming laptop setup there’s a full pullout couch on the opposite side where he kicks back and uses the setup remotely with the wireless keyboard and mouse.

13) Thomas’s Setup

laptop setups

Last but not least is vincent from Montreal Canada with a super clean and minimalistic laptop setup.

I’m absolutely loving that modern industrial theme that he was going for, we got that brick wall and the wooden accents for that industrial look combined with a white tabletop for a bit of a modern twist.

He has a 27-inch Acer monitor hooked up to a dual monitor arm that’s also holding up his Lenovo ThinkBook laptop.

laptop setups

The setup even has a bit of vintage touch to it because of the typewriter-style keyboard and the wrist rest that he’s using now.

This keyboard isn’t wireless as it seems he actually drilled a hole in the mouse pad and the desk to pass through the cables, I also love how the speaker blends in with the background.
