Mark Jordan’s workspace is clean, tidy, and actually looks like someone gets work done in it—mostly because Mark is a a PC technician and uses the entire area to the left to repair and maintain client systems. That doesn’t mean his primary setup is anything but good-looking though.
Mark’s main computer is a Mac and boasts a beautifully bent wooden monitor stand, Bose speakers, and a pair of phones (one for work and the other personal)—an iPhone and an LG G4 he uses along with his Moto 360 smartwatch. You can actually check out a closeup of his phones here, and a more recent photo with some guest-starring Android figures here. As for his tech though, here’s what he says he uses on a day-to-day basis:
My office/workshop as of March 2016. On the left is my ‘workshop’ – where I maintain and fix clients computers/laptops. This desk compromises of a 2014 MacMini and an old Dell 2007FP 21″ monitor. On the right is my 2015 iPad Mini (Retina model), Apple 24″ LED Cinema Screen and 2012 MacBook Pro (256GB SSD/16GB RAM/Intel i5)
Much like I did when I had a similar laptop-plus-display setup (and this previously featured workspace), he uses the smaller display purely for Spotify and other screens that he’d like to monitor, but not necessarily work in:
All that music comes out of a pair of tiny Bose speakers right under the monitor stand in the center of his desk—the Bose Companion 3 Series II, which will set you back around $250-$270 at Amazon if you’re interested. Here’s a closer look:
All in all, it’s a great workspace, one that looks comfortable and cozy to work from every day, and most importantly, has enough space for him to work on other computers without pulling too much clutter into his own. If you’ve ever repaired systems for a living, you know it’s essential to have a little room to leave them while they run diagnostics, OS installs, or just sit idly while you research what the heck is wrong with them on your own system.

If you have a workspace of your own to show off, share them with us by adding it to our Lifehacker Workspace Show and Tell Flickr pool. Make sure any photos you include are at least 1280×720. Keeping them to 16:9 helps, too! Include a little text about the stuff you used, how you came up with the design, and any other relevant details. If your clever organization and good design sense catches our eye, you might be the next featured workspace!
