The Tilt And Read Office

The best workspace hacks are the simple ones that smooth your workflow and blend in seamlessly enough that you're not resistant to using them. Today's featured workspace sports a monitor mounted for easy rotation and stuck-under-the-desk Mac Mini server.

Lifehacker reader Robyr has a simple desk with a corner mounted monitor. The monitor is mounted in such a way that it can be easily rotated from landscape (seen above) to portrait (seen below) to switch between traditional computer work and extended web page and document reading.

Another clever space-saving hack, besides mounting the monitor on an arm, is the beneath-the-desk Mac Mini install. Using a sheet of gelatin-like removable adhesive from his work he attached the Mac Mini directly to the underside of the desk. We're big fans of mounting things under desk or out of sight altogether; check out this under-desk pegboard organiser for a great idea on how to mount things out of sight.

    if it was me i wouldn't hide my mac mini from sight if i had one and would rather put it on the desk to show off the sleek metal shine box

    what I'm struggling with, is that he has hidden the Mac Mini under the desk, presumably to look tidy and save space, but he has a freaking huge MacPro sitting ON the desk!?!?!?!

      I know this is an older post, but I feel the need to explain as things have since changed. I have the Mini mounted underneath my desk mainly because of the cabling mess. I rarely if ever touch the Mini or plug any thing in to it. The HacPro (It was actually a G5 PowerMac that I had converted in to an Intel box) was my main lifeline for all things at the time. That has since been sold and I now use a 13" MBP with 120GB SSD and a 500GB rotary drive.
