I haven’t had a decent home setup for many years, but having to work from home (which I’m kinda loving, tbh) required an update. This is how it looks like and what it has:
The computer is a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018) with a 2,6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7; 16 GB 2400 MHz DDR4, and a 1TB Flash Drive.
I use it as a secondary monitor,
but it works wonders as a heater as well. This thing burns. Update: I’m
thrilled with the extra cooling that I got with the Twelve South
My main monitor is an LG 24" UltraFine 4K . What can I say? I love it! I love how the code (and everything) looks in this resolution and brightness. It’s a pleasure to look at. I also like having all my peripherals (that’s mainly the keyboard and webcam) connected to it via USB-C and a single cable to my computer (that works as a charger as well). Totally recommended.
The keyboard has been my most recent acquisition. I wanted a keeb for a while, and not having anyone around while I work allowed me to get some loud clicky switches. After some research I fell in love with this Varmilo VA87M Vintage days with Cherry MX blues .
Standard Apple’s Magic Mouse 2 in silver. Genius charging interface.
I use a Logitech StreamCam that gets the job done. Enough video quality (FullHD) for Zoom, not the best sound. I chose it mostly because it’s USB-C.
I’ve been using these Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT headphones for more than 2 years now and I’m really satisfied with them. More than decent sound quality, great battery life and so confortable I can wear them for hours without annoyance. They’re really good value for money.
A 3 inches GitHub’s Octocat Figurine that lost its whiskers a while ago… It’s been my coding companion for a while, and eventually plays the rubber duck role while debbuging. I used to have a small plush caribou as well, but he’s waiting in the office…
To complete the picture, I also have this basic Digoo DG-TH1130 thermometer/hygrometer.
