Here’s some stuff that I find helpful to some degree.
Cheap desk, good chair, good speakers, stupid-Hertz displays.
Alienware 34” AW3418DW Curved Ultrawide (120Hz)
Ultrawide for programming
Alienware 25” AW2518H 1080p (240Hz)
240Hz 1080p for gaming.
IKEA Bekant Sit/Stand
$400 standing desk. It gets the job done.
Herman Miller Aeron
This chair literally saved my ass after I nearly broke it on a $20 chair from target.
Audioengine A2 Speakers
These just look cool
Jarvis Monitor Arms
Get your displays in the exact right position and reclaim some desk space.
NZXT S340 Elite ATX Case
Case not sold any more, but lots of great looking alternatives.
NZXT N7 Z370 Motherboard
Easiest motherboard to install and setup.
A little smol, but a great gaming mouse for only $28.
Glourious Model O Gaming Maus
Only 67g. Very fast but similar to the Logitech.
Keep them cables clear.
Gotta take care of your moneymakers.
Huge splurge, but a really great and quirky ortholinear split ergo mechanical keyboard.
Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard
This keyboard is a bit squishy, but I promised myself if Microsoft ever released a wired ergo keyboard I’d buy it. For $67 it’s pretty great.
Logitech MX Vertical Wireless Mouse
I trialed a $15 Anker vertical mouse first, but Logitech one is amazing and feels luxurious.
When it comes to podcasting setups, I lean towards minimal, affordable setups that sound good.
Was my travel mic, now it’s my main
Røde PS-1 Swivel Mount Boom Arm
Best way to reduce echo is get that mic up in your face.
Hanging on to this in case I ever go analog again.
Laptop, Tablet, Phones, Etc.
Surface Laptop 2 (13”)
I got the 13” matte black, considering going up to 15”.
iPad Pro 11”
Been lusting after a device like this. Mixed reviews tho.
I lost my other phone on a bike ride. This was the cheapest replacement.
I 💙 RSS and Feedbin has the user experience and features I crave.
It’s a code editor. Has plugins and themes. It’s nice.
Online image compression tool, great for cutting WebPs.
Best image compression tool I found for Windows. Good for batch operations.
Best quick screencapture tool for Windows.
Incredible software if you’re going to start a Twitch stream.
