We've seen some great gadgets and equipment for designers. There are so many cool stuff out there that we could assemble infinite perfect office spaces every week! So we'll assemble some, and we'd like you to help us. What equipment would the perfect office have?
This week Apple has released lots of updates on their hardware, from the wireless keyboard with numpad (YES!) to the powerful and expensive iMac Pro. Besides that, you'll also see the ASUS ZenScreen portable monitor, which is pretty handy for those who just need 2 screens (like myself). But there's more!

With exactly no fanfare except a “New” badge above the name, Apple introduced the long, long awaited wireless keyboard with a number pad. I mean, maybe it’s not that important, but it’s definitely the best release today from where I’m sitting. Apple’s mice have been wireless for eight years, and sure all that time there’s been a wireless keyboard, but if you wanted a number pad and a “page down” button you were forced to endure a lone, white wire casting a shadow of shame on what would otherwise be a pristine desk. It’s finally over. (at Gear Patrol)
Apple Homepod Speaker
We knew it was inevitable. The Apple HomePod Speaker still manages to surprise. Standing under seven inches tall, it's a 3D mesh-wrapped cylinder with a ton of tech built-in. On specs alone, the array of seven tweeters, precision acoustic horns, and four-inch upward-facing subwoofer sound good. Thanks to its Apple A8 brain, it makes the most of them by automatically detecting your space and creating a profile tailored to your home. And of course, an array of six microphones let you talk to Siri, so you can do everything from play an Apple Music playlist to set a location-based reminder using nothing more than your voice.

ASUS ZenScreen Portable Monitor
Extend your world at your fingertips with the ASUS ZenScreen Portable Monitor. Complete with two USB ports, you can instantly access your media like never before. The ZenScreen measures a massive 15.6 inches to truly captivate you. Because you can connect via USB A and USB C, you have virtually limitless options for your devices. Impressively, the display rotates automatically depending on the media type. (at The Gadget Flow)
Dell Inspiron 27 7000 PC
Dell unveiled its new Inspiron 27 700 all-in-one PC at Computex 2017. It’s the first product of its kind from Dell that’s powered by AMD’s latest Ryzen processors. The base Inspiron 27 7000 model features a Ryzen 5 1400 processor with 4GB Radeon RX 560 graphics. Prices for this model start at $1000. Those who want more power can opt for the 8 core Ryzen 7 1700 model that comes with 8GB Radeon RX 580 graphics, it costs $1,300. There’s also a $1,500 option for those who want a 4K HDR display. Both of these models have support for full VR. (at Ubergizmo)
It's not just faster than a regular iMac. It's the fastest Mac ever. Packing up to an 18-core Xeon Processor and up to 128GB of RAM, the iMac Pro is a workstation-class computer in a stunningly slim package. The regular model's aluminum shell gets bathed in a dark space gray, and also holds Radeon Vega graphics capable of driving 44 million pixels at once, as well as a slew of high-end I/O options.
