Just wanted to share my current work setup.
2019 MacBook Pro 16"
- Linux without the hassle, and I get great integration w/my phone and watch
daskeyboard 4 w/gel wristpad
- I used to hate the wrist pad, but it's necessary for me when I'm standing, and it's not bad while sitting either
Logitech M510 (with Logi Options driver)
- Using Logi Options, I almost prefer this to a magic mouse. I can change workspaces and open mission control through a Logitech mouse that's comfy.
- Dell 43" 4K monitor
- They came with my iMac, but I was really surprised by their comfort, sound, and longevity. I have no plans to replace them
All of this sits atop a 48" standing desk. My butt is kept off the ground by my own two feet, a standing chair, a kneeling chair, and a classic office chair. Humans weren't made to stay in the same position for 8 hours!
Another important aspect of a work setup, and one not often discussed, is distraction prevention. I listen to familiar or background music w/noise cancellation, and I've isolated my work space away from any visible distractions. I use a browser extension to keep me on task and not spend too much time on reddit or ycombinator.
I'm usually rocking a t-shirt and pajama/lounge pants and slippers. That was before and after COVID when working remote.
