A new year I'm in a brand new space which means a brand new desk setup and I can't wait to show you the full office tour but I wanted to give you a sneak peek of what's going on around here so I kept this desk setup minimal

I hope you like it welcome to my 5k ultra wide Mac Mini minimal setup let's start with the heart of the setup and the desk is the BDI central lift in white and you might have seen my last setup with the darker version of this

Desk which I still love but I'm back to the bright and clean aesthetic on this one there are a few reasons why I stick to this desk and the first one is that I love the satin edge tempered glass finish on the top it's really unique and

It looks like no other desks that I've ever had and it's also motorized with programmable Heights so I can stand up to work if I need to change it up while I'm crunching through long edits and then when I'm done I can just set it

Back to the way it was with just one button there's a cutout at the top of the desk for monitor wires to feed through and here's what underneath the desk looks like the central lift comes with this metal cable ledge that will

Keep all of your power strips and cables in one place it's nice and discreet the motor for the desk is nice and tucked away here and there are built-in cable straps throughout the bottom as well to keep all of your wires organized I even

Put my amplifi HD Wi-Fi router underneath the desk and it was easy to keep all of the cables under control and I was able to feed all of the wires down the leg with this included cable housing so this desk is a cable management dream

Right out of the box there's only one wire that looked messy but I was able to hide that with this cable management channel that I got off of Amazon it's cheap it sticks on with 3m and it looks so clean I'll leave links to everything

That you see in the setup tour in the description below if you're interested I have a few attachments for the central lift desk I have the matching central 6 4 1 4 pedestal file cabinet to give me some extra storage and on top of this I

Keep a rotation of my favorite headphones on the Wu audio metal headphone stand I've had this for a while now but I love it hands down the drawer is my favorite attachment because once again BDI thinks

Of cable management with holes on the rear portion of the drawer so I'm able to keep this Nomad wireless charger right in the drawer so whenever I need to charge my phone or my air pods I just place it on there and close the

Drawer I love that little solution to bring wireless charging to my desk setup without drilling holes or messing my desk up more on this desk in a future episode and you never know you might get a chance to win one of these desks so

Stay tuned the power on the desk is the latest Mac Mini with a 6 core Core i7 processor plenty of power through edit to 4k videos it's small and compact on a desk and I think it looks really nice especially in that space gray color this

Mac Mini is fairly new but if you're running a Mac that is running really slow right now or you think that you might have some malware on it then check out today's video sponsor CleanMyMac X I'm using my macbook pro here for over a

Year and I ran CleanMyMac X on it and I couldn't believe all the unnecessary files that I had on my macbook I ended up getting a nice chunk of storage back all you have to do is download CleanMyMac x with the link in the

Description it's super fast and easy to install and with just one button click it will scan your entire system it will go through and do a complete sweep of your Mac looking for anything that is not supposed to be there and protect you

From malicious files and vulnerabilities the scan includes running maintenance scripts and finding system junk that you definitely don't need and my macbook pro is running so much faster now like the day that I bought it so it's about time

That a legit Mac cleaning app is available that's beautiful and easy to use and most importantly does what it claims to do so find out what's taking up that RAM and what could be draining your battery life and get rid of the

Files that's affecting performance cleanup speed up and protect your Mac with just one tool it's the first step that you should download for your new or old Mac so to find out more information about CleanMyMac x go to the description

Below and click on that link and try it for yourself I highly recommend it it's legit I have the matching Space Gray Apple keyboard to tie in that color scheme I like this keyboard because I still

Have that number on the right and I still think it's much more comfortable to type on this keyboard then my MacBook Pro so maybe I'm weird because I actually like this keyboard but for the next setup I'm testing out a

Mechanical keyboard that is wireless and designed for Mac I'm really digging it so far so I'll show you this in the next episode I decided not to go with the mouse and out for the Apple trackpad instead this is a custom painted color

Where Mac black version I thought it looked nicer on the desk than the space great trackpad which I have as well and I'm one of those weird guys that actually likes editing on this trackpad if you think I'm weird for that

Let me know in the comments below the most polarizing thing on the desk is the ultra wide monitor and this is the LG 34 inch v k2k panel it has a resolution of 50-120 by 2160 and the reason why I chose this monitor was

Because it has Thunderbolt 3 support so I thought it was a no-brainer for the Mac but I have my ups and downs with this monitor and while I love the way this monitor looks I can't wholeheartedly recommend this

Monitor the best thing about it is the quality of the panel it's got a matte finish which I like and the colors are fantastic so when I'm watching high quality content like this I really enjoy it or if I'm doing web browsing and

Answering emails like I do so many hours of the day I can fit so much on this display I also love editing video with this type of screen real estate it gives me that flexibility to look at more of my timeline for Final Cut Pro it is a

Dream and this Mac Mini is way more powerful than most people would imagine it to be for video editing unfortunately there are many downsides to this monitor the first is just how flimsy the basis even if you are typing or just bump the

Desk slightly the monitor moves around everywhere so if you're planning to get this monitor I would get a monitor arm just to keep it steady that's not even the worst part just the basics like connectivity and the monitor turning on

Can be an issue and if you use a MacBook Pro with dedicated graphics especially the latest versions it might not even work it works a lot better with the integrated graphics like on this Mac Mini but I had to add the Blackmagic EGP

You just to get consistent performance with connectivity but even then I still can't get the monitor to output all half the time so even though that the monitor is not unusable by any means I would do a little bit of research before

Buying this monitor there are a few other aesthetics that I wanted to include on this set up there is a lamp that I bought from Target and I'm not sure if they even make this anymore but I love this lamp because of the gray

Base I thought that it matched perfectly and I like that the wood brings a little bit of warmth to the setup and the black and white broke wiring ties it all together nicely the bulb inside the lamp and the light strip behind the desk is

Philips hue I used to use light fix but I'm in the current process of moving all of my smart home to hue so I'll tell you why in the next smart home setup tour but I love the amount of colors and the moods that I can bring to the setup with

These lights plus I can control these lights by voice or on the hue app from anywhere in the world last but not least this chair is not the obvious choice for most death setups but I really like it if you don't know I

Love sneakers and when I saw this fans and moderna kachelle chair go for sale I got it immediately I think it's sold out now but the classic checker pattern fits it perfectly it's made of fiberglass and

It's way more comfortable than I thought it would be and it came with a cushion that makes the chair more comfortable during long editing sessions even though the setup is not 100% done I wanted to give you a sneak peek of how this office

Is turning out I'm excited because there's a lot more to show you like the TV setup that's over there and the gear setup that's over here so make sure you subscribe so you don't miss that hit that notification bell and I also want

To know what do you think about the ultra wide 5k Mac Mini setup I think it came out really clean so make sure you that like button if you enjoyed it and thank you to clean my Mac X for making this video possible make sure you hit
