Where’s your mouse?

ID: hroh31f

Had in my hand taking the pic.. But it's the cheapest of cheap so I'll be getting a new one this weekend

ID: hroqqsz

Yea but, like, where does it sit when you're using the LP? Do you just move the keyboard over or use your knee/leg?

Edit: Nm just had another look, it'd be an awkward position but I guess you could have it on the top right above the keyboard

Two pieces of advice:

keep the laptop shut close, saves on ressources

get a fan for underneath your laptop

Comfy little corner and chair is perfect for my size, most gaming chairs are too small for my height... awaiting a smaller desk though

10/10 then!

Desk and cooling tray I ordered have now travelled across 4 countires and back again so I've dragged the camping table out!

11 : Anonymous2022/01/07 19:56 ID: hroiprt

3/10 Mostly because of the wires. Also if you do have a mouse, there is little space to move it which can be a problem with certain games. The chair looks nice tho in a rustic sort of way.

Close your laptop. The screen and keyboard steals power from your gpu. I get like a 15-20% boost when i close it.

15 : Anonymous2022/01/07 20:32 ID: hrooi05

Definitely need to invest in a bigger table. I don't trust round tables lmao

How old are you, if you don’t mind me asking?

I tense up seeing those cords from the laptop to monitor. The moment you lift you hand up to snack or scratch chin. You’re gonna knock the laptop over.

We have the same ketboard

28 : Anonymous2022/01/07 22:11 ID: hrp48oc

Hey man, we're about the same age, and I don't appreciate you calling yourself an old man.

Tips: You need some headphones. Plug your external speakers into your monitor's headphone jack and push audio to those speakers through the monitor. Plug your headphones into the headphone jack in the laptop. Right-click the sound icon (bottom right tray) and select output to switch between them when you need to.

Use an old phone charger to power your external speakers rather than powering them through your laptop's USB.

Select to display external monitor only so that you don't have two screens running, using up extra resources.

The resolution on your external monitor is too low. Bump it up to at least 1920x1080

Ideally, you want a rectangular table. Those rounded edges aren't going to do your wrists any favors. You don't have enough surface area to comfortably play for extended periods.

Not old enough where is the beige crt and larger than life computer case with knuckle splitting sharp metal

The setup is sick, but that doesn’t look like the safest place for a laptop.

Isn’t there an option to shut the laptop’s screen down while you’re on an external screen?

From one old man to another, one of those strap on lumbar support pillows for the chair is worth its weight in gold.

I think mine was 29 bucks on Amazon. Back pain was gone in 1-2 days.

39 : Anonymous2022/01/07 23:41 ID: hrpi0hz

Cheers I'll have a look at them, have one in work for my shitty offic chair but this has a curved to sit back in, nice height so my long as legs are straight and is oddly comfortable to sit with proper posture.

Honestly went looking at gaming chairs but I prefer this one, been using it for a year and I'm molded to it now.

No room for mouse, glossy table top. speakers instead of headphones? inconsiderate asf.

This image will haunt me. Just nightmares of not being able to put my hand anywhere or my mouse not responding. waking in a sweat

You need better back support at older ages. 3/10
