What happen to my Workspace?

Thought I might share a quick snap of the workspace that I use for my personal design work. As you can see there are some interesting things that are happening to it.
My desktop computer went in the way of the dinosaurs a number of years ago. I really hated the wires or the floor and table space it took up. Instead, I wanted was a mobile modular computing system that would allow me to work anywhere I wanted. Four laptops later, my latest incarnation is a 13 inch Macbook.
As a result, my Wacom Intuos 3 drawing tablet is now one of the biggest thing on my desktop. Wholly out of proportion with the size of my laptop. Maybe I was a little ambitious going with the 9×12 (A4) tablet, but it was a legacy product to match my old 17″ desktop monitor or my retired 15.4″ laptop. With the desktop computer now gone, the size of the Tablet stands out like a sore thumb and is starting to annoy me.
Interestingly, even though technology makes things smaller, the size of the workspace we need to work (draw) on remains more or less the same. Guess the Wacom tablet stays!
What about you? Do you have any interesting workspace stories to share?
