My new Dell 2412s have arrived

My new Dell 2412s have arrived. Let the unboxing begin!

Bask in its glory, why don’t you? Go ahead, I’ll wait. It’s glorious, isn’t it?

A little background history: In 2003, I started to long for a better desk. I had this crappy OfficeMax desk, but it was neither wide enough nor long enough to accomodate what I wanted to do. Seriously, 2003. I had my eye on this IKEA Yerker desk that he rroommate had. It wasn’t perfect, but it was interesting. However, I didn’t pull the trigger. The hunt continued. Late last year, I found the Vika Amon build-your-own-table model at IKEA, and I was intrigued. A simple large, wide table, customizable, with legs of your choosing, at a reasonable price? That’s all I’m looking for. This week, we got it. So far, very spacious, with room for docking both devices and cats.

In addition, I started thinking about getting a widescreen HD LCD monitor for the office. While I liked my 19″ Dell LCD was so much more compact compared to my old CRT, 19″ monitors are so 2005. I wanted big. Late last year, I started considering the benefits of two monitors. Dual desktop screens, working on one, watching tv and movies on the other. True multitasking. It took a few more months, but my wife bought them for my birthday. I set up them tonight, and they’re just fantastic. Two 24″ Dell U2412 HD monitors.

You can weep now.

Not quite done yet, though. Next on the list is a wireless keyboard, wireless mouse, and an HD webcam. I’ve narrowed all three down to specific Logitech products, but I’ll need to space those purchases out this year.
