My Setup

Joinville ยท January 29, 2020

Sometimes people ask me what my setup looks like for remote work. I decided to try to keep a list of the hardware I'm currently using. Hope you'll find this useful, somehow.

PS: I will try to keep this up to date, but I won't promise anything. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

How it looks like

My setup ๐Ÿ˜Œ

I use the MacBook on clamshell mode (closed) because I don't like to manage multiple screens (sue me) and the screen is already big enough. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Machine

Its a MacBook Pro 15โ€, from 2017.

It has a 3.1 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB of memory and a 2 TB SSD disk.

Its more than enough for a couple of years I think.

Keyboard / Mouse

I'm pretty basic and use a Magic Keyboard 2 and a Magic Trackpad 2.

Display

Recently changed to a Dell U2718Q, 27โ€, 4K, IPS.

And it is awesome. ๐Ÿคฉ

Before that I used a LG 23PM55, 23", IPS. Not nearly as cool as the current one.

Headphones

Currently, I'm using a Bose QC35 II.

It has Active NC and all that. It's pretty good to listen music and work without hearing my wife calling me (don't @ me) or someone knocking.

Before that, I had the AirPods 1st generation, but I accidentally washed them - and now they're dead.
