I started off with my sharp, stylish, and neat G4. Everything was fine. <br>But then I got a monitor. That brought with it, a big fat cable that branched into a fire wire, USB, a video cable and one I don't even know what it does. Then I got a printer, so, another USB. Then a scanner with yet another USB. <br><br>Now I have cables snaking across my desk, looking like 3PO threw up. I have a couple of USB ports in the back of the monitor, BUT the scanner says it shouldn't be hooked up to a hub. My keyboard (did I mention that before?) has two USB ports as well. This looks really ugly... like I have a Windows PC, yeah, that bad.<br><br><br>What can I do to bring back my uncluttered desk?<br><br>
They don't make the 17 anymore. So it's probably the 20.<br><br>Skul, like (I think Michael) said, bluetooth is about it. You might be able to hide some of the wires by getting hubs and routing the wires behind the desk, but that's about it as far as I know.<br><br><br><br>
IMO, the positioning of your laptop is the problem. I have my laptop where your printer is, with all the cables running off the left side of the desk, and all cable from other peripherals running straight off the back of the desk. Use a twisty to keep all the cables that go into your laptop together, so when you disconnect /reconnect you don't have to hunt for them. <br>Wireless keyboard and mouse are killer too.<br><br>
