What's on My Desk

☕️ 2 min read

My Workplace

Inspired by other people sharing their workspace photos and description, I thought it'd be fun to share my own setup of home-office workstation. I find very interesting to read what people use to do their work, it allows to find ideas or refresh own setup.

Let's get started!

MacBook Pro 2017

On an everyday basis, I use my MacBook Pro 15” 2017. This laptop allows me to work no matter where am I, furthermore provides comfortable work even without a mouse.

On my desk, it stands on TwelveSouth HiRise for MacBook to be on the same level with a monitor.

LG 4K Display

My main screen is the 27 inch UHD 4K Monitor | LG 27UD69P | LG UK, it has an adjustable height feature which I find very useful in combination with a height-adjustable Desk. In addition, it supports orientation change but I use it very rarely. As for now, I don't feel I need two monitors, my MacBook plays the role of a second one where I can keep less important windows. On the LG monitor, I usually keep code editor and browser windows to check my work.

Height-Adjustable Desk

Everyday sitting is damaging our body, so I decided to build an electric height-adjustable desk based on Conset 501-33 and custom light-colored countertop. Not to say that I spend a lot of time standing but it helps to increase productivity a bit. In addition, you can dance while listening to music 😀.

Custom PC

The main purpose of the PC is to play games in my free time or to run Linux when I'm bored with Mac OS.

Other Stuff:
  • 🎧 Headphones: Apple AirPods. Pretty cool combination to a Mac or iPhone.
  • 🖱 Mouse: Logitech MX Master. Simply the best mouse I ever had. It has hot-keys configuration with which you can configure your mouse to switch between windows or desktops same fast as on touchpad or Apple Mouse.
  • ⌨️ Keyboard: Logitech K760. Old but still good. The only thing I'm feeling not comfortable with is missing music control keys.
  • 🧰 Multi-port adapter: Satechi Type-C multi-port adapter. It's still painful to have only type-c ports. Note that it doesn't support [email protected]
  • 📦 NAS: Synology DiskStation DS218j. Backups and Media storage.
  • 🎒 Bag: Thule EnRoute Triumph 2 Daypack, Dark Shadow. My must-have thing when I go outside. It has only 24 liters but it’s enough for me to put everything into it even for a small few-days travel.
  • 🖱 Mouse #2: Apple Magic Mouse 2. I’m using it rarely as after MX master I don’t find this mouse to be comfortable.
  • Chair: Unknown office chair. Going to replace it someday with an orthopedic one.
