I am just wondering what some of your laptop setups include. So just post your laptop, and what you have hooked up to it when you are using it at home. You can use a photo too if you like (please link or thumbnail though).

Here is mine:

15" powerbook (1.67GHZ / high-res model)

icurve laptop stand
Apple pro keyboard
Logitech MX510 mouse
Dell 2005FPW 20" widescreen LCD
Epson photo printer
Sennheiser HD555 headphones

Nothing much. Just a mouse and my headphones (Grado SR-60). My printer is connected over my Airport Express.
