What is the portrait-oriented screen on the left of the second picture? Is it a computer monitor?

That is a Vectrex.

I only have a few games for it and no overlays. Looks great in the dark with the lights off.

Vectrex rocks. I've got a pretty decent Vectrex collection, including a lot of the modern releases (Protector is plain awesome).

Your computing areas are too clean. You're all obviously married. :P

Thanks, all of it was free from the local thrift store, I had a nice 866 in a black case with a black CRT Flat. Just did not give me that retro feel.
