Any tips on cable management on your home-office desk? I have two laptops (+ chargers), one monitor, webcame, external speaker, phone/watch charger in addition to the wireless keyboard/mouse. It's a big mess!

Highly recommend 1. Super strong double sided adhesive tape for power block to put under the desk and 2. Cable raceways to hide your cables

Do you absolutely need two laptops simultaneously? If possible just use a desktop instead! Put the CPU on the floor or get one of those need mac where the CPU is built into the monitor

If you’re hooking up external monitors, KB, and mouse, then you don’t need your laptop as accessible. Put it in a drawer etc.

Thunderbolt or USB-C dock and cables of the correct length help a lot. And a cable raceway to discreetly route power cables. One of those cable boxes to put your surge protector in and hide excess power cable length and AC adapters.
