I made a "holder" for the dev laptops in the tall cabinet. We'll use this Fall (2018).

Up until now, the dev laptops were either stored vertically (where they can fall down) or stacked one atop another. Stacking is not a good idea since each weighs 6 to 7 pounds so the bottom on gets crushed (good thing these have a strong magnesium chassis but the LCD is still a weak point). So I made a box with slats. Each laptop gets its own place to sit vertically without leaning on another laptop or falling over. Each slot is labeled 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. There is no "2" since that laptop has been retired and used for parts. Everyone using a laptop is expected to put it back in the correct slot.

Above this unit, there is space for the chargers so they no longer will clump up on the shelf.
