Basic Trope: The computer-laden place where a geek spends the majority of their time.
Straight: Seamus O'Taku's bedroom is cluttered with screens, wires, sound equipment, etc.
Exaggerated: Seamus' bedroom is so cluttered with such that one would not immediately recognize it as a bedroom, and even he can't find his bed!
Downplayed: Seamus' room only has a couple of screens and wires as well as some speakers dotted around.
Seamus needs all this stuff for the work he does.
Seamus sells computer parts on the black market; his bedroom doubles as a warehouse.
Seamus (or his family) is wealthy enough to afford all this tech stuff.
Seamus spent a while trying to collect all the computers for this. Mostly the computers stay inactive, bar one or two for general use, but from time to time Seamus activates all of the machines to do some complicated computing or tests.
Seamus' bedroom has nothing technological in it, save for a light fixture.
Seamus' parents are wealthy architects, so his room has several floor-to-ceiling windows, letting in lots of natural light. It's not so much a hacker cave as it is more of a hacker atrium.
Subverted: We are told Seamus' bedroom is loaded with lots of tech stuff. It turns out to have a computer, TV, stereo, or some such in it, but that's it.
Double Subverted: But down in the basement, where his home office is, Seamus has more techno-crap than your average computer store!
Parodied: Seamus' whole house is like that.
Zig Zagged: There's a hacker attic too!
Averted: Seamus's bedroom has a computer, TV, stereo, or some such in it, but that's it.
Invoked: Seamus buys a computer, then decides he wants all these add-ons, then decides he wants all this other stuff.
Exploited: Seamus has a decoy downstairs full of outdated computers and equipment he salvaged from a junk yard, his real hacking takes place on a laptop he keeps with him.
Seamus is on a shoestring budget, and as much as he wants all this techno-equipment, he just cannot afford it. He knows he won't use all of it all the time, and so cannot even justify it as an "investment." Furthermore, he knows that all this tech stuff will be obsolete in six months (or less) anyway.
Seamus values mobility, and thus does his hacking from a laptop.
Discussed: "Seamus sure has lots of computers."
Conversed: "I know he's One of Us, but this is ridiculous!"
