I have pictures, just need to find time to get to a computer to post em.
What is the saying, pics or it never happened ?

You have two work surfaces with that and a laptop area. Use a true sinewave inverter on that and you could use two deep draw 12 volt marine or golf cart batteries and not have to plug in anywhere.

That things is sweet! I'd hate to take that on a job and see it get scratched up or abused.

Worst part is that cost more than my first three cars combined. Hahaha.

It's cool but expensive as you elude to. I can also see it getting cut with a torch to get the flat screen. Not sure if you have seen the ones that are like a small office but out on the docks I've seen them have everything inside but an ac unit.

GC had this on the last job due to logistics on the site. It was nice overall.
Our company I believe has one now as well.

Ipads are plentiful for prints. Still need the laptop for BIM models since they are so intensive.

It's a very nice item to have in your arsenal but you could buy a job trailer for that much money.
