What do you use? Please post your PC setup and devices. Here's mine. Not fast by today's standards and no video card, but I'm happy with it. Excellent for programming. For gaming, I use Android TV (CX919).

* Keyboard: Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic: $60. Best one I've ever used
* Keypad: Razor Nostromo: $40. Customized for programming, 14 keys: Undo, redo, cut, copy, paste, run, etc

--------------------------------------------

Mini Cameras
Quote:
* HD1280: Keychain HD Camcorder. Rating: 4/10. Low quality video, grainy pictures, horrible audio, "hard" operation, confusing lights, blue, red and purple. Not recommended. Paid $9
* Y3000 (Not Y2000. Says 8.0MP): World's Smallest HD Camcorder. Rating: 7/10. Pretty good video, close to HD. Pictures are same as video snapshot. Not high quality audio. Need fast Micro SD, class 10. Easy operation. Press once for picture. To record video, hold for 2 seconds until the blue light starts flashing. No LCD to see what you're recording. Aim takes practice. Overall, good for fun/hobby (example: mount on RC helicopters). Cute collectors item. Paid $23
* HD1080P Wifi ("Fake SJ4000"). Rating: 8.25/10. Video is "good enough", same as cell phone, Motorola Razr Maxx HD. LCD but no zoom, not even digital. Includes all mounts (example: motorcycle). Waterproof enclosure. Perfect for recreation. Paid $27

Laptop: ASUS RoG G750JH - Overkill for programming, but I game in my free time.
Keyboard: HP KU-0316 - Generic and I love it, it's indestructible and cheap.
Mouse: Sentey Nebulus - Gaming mouse I got for free from the company
Mousepad: Sentey Kairos PRO extra thick - Mousepad I got for free from the company
Headset: Tactic3D Rage (Terrible headset, I wouldn't recommend) - Terrible, cost me a bit of money but the microphone is super quiet and sometimes breaks.

Monitors from left to right:
[Model] [Resolution][Ratio][Port]
Acer P244W | 1920x1080 | 16:9 | VGA
ASUS Laptop | 1920x1080 | 16:9 | Default
HP LP2465 | 1920x1080 | 16:9 | HDMI->DVI (converted)

External HDD: Seagate Freeagent Goflex 512gb - Great for backing up my programs and data

Total cost: I have no idea, most of this stuff I was lucky enough to find/score for free or cheap.

I also have a Raspberry Pi B+ that I use as a media center. I might take pictures/specs if I ever get around to it.

Smart thinking. In rich neighborhoods on "garbage day", some people throw away new computers/towers if there is one minor problem - example: needs power or new hard drive - and they can't return it.

Whatever works for you. For years, I used cheap HP and Dell keyboards until I experienced ergonomic keyboards like Microsoft Natural (Classic), Logitech Wave (Ok), Sculpt Comfort (Looks good but hated it, painful downwards arc) and now the Sculpt Ergonomic which I've been using for the last 4 months. I love it. For Miracle CPU with TinyCC and Notepad++, I wanted a better keyboard than the Sculpt Comfort I had previously, it was NOT natural with the downward arc, typing 3,000+ lines of code per day may cause pain and/or damage to wrist tendons. So, for high-volume programming, my opinion is that Sculpt Ergonomic is the "best" choice right now with a custom X-Keys keypad. I'm currently using the Razer Nostromo keypad with only 14 functions, $20 used, and want to evolve into the X-Keys 60 below.

Me, too, only used my RPI for programming, GCC and FASM-ARM. For entertainment, I prefer Chinese Android TV devices such as CX919 with custom firmware - no spyware, "control-ware" or "ransom-ware" from phone companies - with an air mouse. Android is also good for C programming with C4Droid.

X-Keys XK 24 and 60 Custom Keypads. Search amazon, $150-$200+ each. Too much $ for me.

redsock: Nice. You play games on that? COD? Dirt? Grid? I bought a Logitech Momo used and had 3 big old 17" CRT monitors for $15 each. $45. Thinking about getting another small 15"-17" vertical display for CX919 with C4Droid to create a standalone version of Abakis for Intel + ARM.

You are a full on, flaming assed, incurable GEEK and slightly impress me with your collection of keyboard devices. Holy sh!t you infected me!

Seriously though, that is a lot of toys and a hardcore collection; many items I recognize scouting for ergo devices, trackballs and custom items. Nice stuff fella.

My collection consists of a membrane Logicrap keyboard and a junky Kensington trackball with scrotum ring. How the hell did Kensington ever become popular --this thing sucks. The buttons broke, now I have improvised paper shims and still manage to pull of some trick shit in FPS games.

I'd post pics, but that would just be rude --my stuff is garbage.

I need to get Red Dragon or Razer stuff and be done with this mess and the shame.
