Computer Assembly

After getting the new Dell G7 working, on Sunday I disassembled my desk, cleaned, dusted, and vacuumed, and started putting things back together again. Challenges I face with the new machine is that there is no docking station and no remote-power-on, so the only way to turn it on is to open the case. Lisa watched me trying to figure it out and came up with an idea that is so far proving useful.

This configuration will do for now until I get the proper monitor cables and when a new XPO computer turns up, at which point I'll have to rearrange things again. I'm glad to have a full-size, full-travel keyboard again.
