Doing away with my desktop

    For 2020 I'm planning on getting rid of my desk(which is really old) in my room and moving my desktop PC, printer, monitor, and other items on my current desk, to a tall industrial rack that I'm getting for a smaller area in my room. If I need to use my desktop PC(which I rarely have been lately. Only used it about four times last year), then I can just stand while using it. I'm not sure what I'll place in the place where my current desk is.

    I can do everything on my laptops and I really don't need a desktop PC anymore. Has anyone else consider doing this, or even done this?

    i dont have an actual desktop for well over 10 years.

    my PC is linked to my tv and i use a pair of wireless keyboard and mouse on it on my couch.

    if my tv is newer i'd even be able to mirror my phone onto it as replacement PC.

    My pc and all other related shit is on a shelf/rack in the closet. Wires run along the wall for wireless keyboard/mouse, and an hdmi cable runs to a ceiling mounted projector.

    So my table can have nothing more than keyboard, mouse, and mousepad, and still have usable pc. The extra table space is great for fiddling with/ fixing/ building shit.

    Yes I’m an old lady. I haven’t gotten rid of my desktop yet. I use it for printing things, and work meetings. That’s about it. I rarely use it, but I can’t seem to part with it. I know, I know, but I use my lappy for teaching, so I don’t use it much for other than that. I know I’m old😶

    I havent had a desktop for over 10 years either. I had a friend build me a badass gaming ASUS that I've been using since my college days. I got a huge monitor on it and its still fast as hell and has great graphics so I havent updated yet.

    The shmeel is awful so I turn it down regularly.

    Mine is about 10 years old and has been relegated to file/media/backup server and seedbox duties. Upgraded the graphics card to get smooth media playback and installed two 4TB HDDs in RAID1 to give me a decently robust storage setup. Nothing else I need a desktop for these days. I think the same is true for most people - the average user from the 90s and 00s treated their desktop as an interface between themselves and various web and word processing applications. Now that laptops and phones can handle these tasks and much more - my laptop with a quad core CPU and 16GB RAM can easily run multiple VMs simultaneously - desktops have little allure except to professionals who need a ton of computing power and gaymers.

    I use my phone for just about everything. I use my work laptop for anything I can’t do with my phone.
