Mine's fairly humble! I use:

  • Mac mini (Late 2014 Quad i5)
    • Running OS and apps off an external SanDisk SSD
  • Single Dell UltraSharp 27" 1440p Monitor
  • Logitech Silent Mouse
  • Klim RGB Keyboard
  • iPhone 8
I also have a cheap throw-around Chromebook I use for on the go.

Which one do you want to know? 😅😂👨‍💻💸

I have a MBP 2017 with two Dell Ultrasharp 25", two MBP 2015 with one LG 27" and LG 24", an iMac 5k which is connected to the LG 27", a Mac mini (old one) with a Dell Ultrasharp 24", two Windows tower for gaming which are connected to the LG displays, one Lenovo Yoga with an USB-C mobile display.

As the central storage I have a Synology 2-bay NAS which gets replaced by unlimited Google cloud.

And now why all this? We are two and also do photo & video. That's why a Razer Core X will extend the setup in near future and we also have several cameras and lenses.

Because music is important and I hate to wear headphones during work I also have two stereos with Bose speakers and Bluetooth JBL headphones.

For gaming we also have an Xbox one, old Wii and for binge watching some Chromecasts and an Amazon fire TV box.

I actually wrote a blog post showin off my office! theluigi.com/blog/the-office

But for those who don't feel like clickin off and reading my site, i'm rockin the 27 inch, 5k retina iMac, with a second curved monitor as well. I also use a 13 inch MacBook for work on the go. I always have my airpods in and am probably jammin out to Dave Matthews or something. I love music and need it to build anything hahaha.

I also have an iPad pro and an iPhone XS Max. These are both nice to use browsersync with so I can preview my designs on multiple devices.

I use a 15'' MBP 2016 with my mouse. I also have an iPad Air 1, but I almost never use it. My phone is a iPhone 8 now. The backup harddrive is 2TB LaCie. In addition I have a Wacom Intuos Draw, which is nice to have. The browsersync between all Apple devices is indeed really handy @theluigi.

Mine is not humble at all, and I'm super lucky to have the rig I do.

  • Custom-built desktop
    • GTX 1080 GPU
    • Intel i7-8700K CPU
    • 32GB DDR4 RAM
    • Sound BlasterX AE-5 sound card
    • 3TB HDD, 500GB SSD
  • Dell U2415 monitor
  • Blue Snowball Ice microphone
  • MX Master 1
  • Some music gear
    • AKAI MPK249 MIDI keyboard
    • M-Audio AV40 desktop monitors
    • Behringer Xenyx Q502USB audio interface and mixer
    • Sennheiser HD280PRO headphones
Operating system-wise, I dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows. I use Ubuntu primarily, I have a custom theme and a lot of other tweaks applied. I'm hoping to get a second monitor at some point in the future but right now I'm super happy with what I have. For travel I have a Surface Book 2.

I don't work with anything special or anything meant for coding. My main goal is making sure my tools are as ergonomic as possible.

My typical set up is:

  • 13" Macbook Air 2013
  • Logitech Performance MX mouse (the old version)
  • Either the couch or the dining room table
  • Occasionally use the TV for YouTube tutorials
When I use my desk (which should be wayyyyyyy more often):
  • 13" Macbook Air 2013
  • Logitech Performance MX mouse (the old version)
  • 20-ish" monitor
  • Nexstand laptop stand
  • Bluetooth keyboard
  • A blanket on the floor for a 4-legged foot warmer
I'm also looking forward to receiving a Dygma keyboard that I ordered.

I also have a custom-built desktop.

  • Ryzen 5 2600
  • RX 580
  • 16GB DDR4
  • 500GB NVME SSD + 256GB Sata SSD
  • MSI B450M Gaming Plus
  • HP VH240a monitor
I don't overspend on my builds, hence the very mid-range hardware.

I tried to do the same, although my build ended up being pretty expensive. I run video and audio rendering workloads as well as some server hosting and a lot of apps running at one.

How do you like the keyboard?

I replied in the ergonomic keyboards thread.

Well I guess I didn't get to the point. It's alright. Bit big, lots of wires. I like split, tented, ortholinear and it ticks those boxes. But I also like my Atreus which ticks most of them while being smaller and having lovely switches.
