A year or so ago I did a similar design with my my homeoffice desk (I use a thinkpad and hid the docking station plus all cables in a drawer under the table having only dual monitors and wireless mouse + keyboard on the desk). Shortly later I noticed that all the free space on my desk just invites my family to drop paperstuff there, which means it's never clean.

So after several months of saving, accumulating, and upgrades, I finally have a setup that uses the core principles here! I'm happy to report that this plan works on both Mac and Linux machines. The only caveat is that, because of how UNIX works, you'll have to properly eject any external hard drives before unplugging the Thunderbolt cable. My solution -- and the next iteration on my setup -- will be to set up a NAS and connect it by either high-speed USB or ethernet (depending on which one has less hiccups). Oh, and it's also worth pointing out that, because of driver support shenanigans, any Mac setup can only use AMD graphics cards and Linux works better with Nvidia; you'll have to pre-plan which OS you'll run with. Then again, I'm probably the only person who has to think about this. Thanks for this video!

What if you switch systems? I have 2 Macs ( persona, work ) and Gaming PC at my desk. Plus DAC, Webcam, Microphone, USB-C drive and 2 4k displays, and powered monitor speakers. The MacBooks overheat if they don't have great airflow. I found that out during my first video conference call.

*Glances casually at the macbook pro on the desk* ..... kinda nice having 4 of them thunderbolt sumbitches. And a UI that doesn't make you wanna claw your eyes out. And no neon green RGB bullcrap anywhere. Kinda nice.
