    It's nice to almost see the progession of peoples setups through age range, say a younger person won't have to same kinda setup as I do. I worked my ass off in my full time job and all that jazz to be able to afford my current setup but now I kinda want to down size, it's just so large and impractical so I'm considering selling what I have and buying a gaming laptop for it as it would do just the same job but take up 1/10th of the space.

    People have different requirements :P

    My setup timeline (2010-now, today, RIGHT THIS SECOND AS OF 15:59) goes something like this:

    • My first ever 'setup' if you will, was a school laptop, on a pine shelving unit with a 2TB external drive and my Snowball microphone. I sat on my guitar amp ._.
    • Moved house and I bought a mouse and keyboard, used my old 17 inch TV as a monitor (same shelving unit, still sat on an amp)
    • Then I got my first desktop, stole the family desk which wobbled and fell apart, and our old 13 year old 12 inch Proview monitor and sat in a foldable camping chair.
    • Then I bought a chair.
    • Then I got my first MacBook (1st Gen from 2006 hell yeah!) and pummelled my school laptop with a hammer because it hadn't worked in a while.
    • Moved into new home, replaced the wooden desk with a glass corner one we stole from our old house hueheuh
    • Replaced PC case with HAF-12 Plus, got 2 new monitors (Asus VH228D), bought a new keyboard and R.A.T 3 mouse
    • Replaced MacBook with MacBook pro
    • SOLD THE SETUP TO A FRIEND
    • Moved into smaller home
    • SOLD THE MACBOOK PRO
    • Bought a more powerful windows laptop
    • Regretted the windows laptop
    • Got an iMac for my 18th
    • SOLD THE LAPTOP
    • Bought a replacement MacBook Pro
    • Bought a desk
    • Ordered the first of 2 Asus VH228D (I love them, they're great monitors and as cheap as the oxygen you breathe)
    • Awaiting delivery of the monitor this evening ;U; !!

    There is a channel that posts mostly setup reviews on youtube, usually posts about 4-5 times a week idk. But here is the link if you want any tips or tricks on your own setup --------- https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQmt0Mzh3sBbdPUVxvABNsguwdBKjpbVz ---------- And there are some setups submitted by 12-13 year olds that beat out most older teens or even adults.

    Alienware isn't that great. You could build a better "power-laptop" for cheaper.

    Even though I don't live in that specific house anymore, the setup is still the same except for the mouse; I now have a Razer Deathadder Chroma

    I apologise for the photo, the screens, the keyboard, the mouse and the mess :)

    (The screens, keyboard and mouse were all free). I made the PC and mess.
