Many of our featured workspaces are filled with complex cable management schemes, several monitors and plenty of other gadgets. Flickr user Matthew Pearce found that all he needed for his home workspace was a MacBook Air, an attractive stand, and a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard to get things done.
The mouse, keyboard and laptop all come from Apple, and the stand is a fairly expensive but very attractive sturdy piece of metal called the mStand by Rain Design. It brings just about any laptop to eye level and was created to look like the neck of an iMac.
What's most notable about this workspace is something a few of us at Lifehacker have realised over the last year — ultrabooks like the MacBook Air are fast enough to get things done. They're not mobile powerhouses by any means, but they're more than capable of handling Photoshop work and even video editing. In fact, Matthew's setup was put together for a video on Photoshop CS6. While there's nothing wrong with a super-powerful desktop, even something minimal can be completely sufficient these days. That's something to consider when you're putting together your next home office.
