16” MacBook Pro, M1 Max, 32GB RAM (2021)
I was using an Intel-based 16” MacBook Pro prior to this and the difference is night and day. I’ve never heard the fans turn on a single time, even under the incredibly heavy loads of Docker, IntelliJ, and Chrome. The M1 Max is a beast.
Dual Dell UltraSharp monitors
A set of standard 27" 4K monitor. They're nothing special, but get's the job done.
Gunnar Optics Razer RPG Computer Glasses
To prevent strain on my eyes, I'm often rocking some amber tinted computer glasses. They're great if you have a tendency to feel fatigue or headaches after staring at a screen for a while.
Apple Magic Keyboard
I've been through a lot of keyboards, yet I always return to the classic Apple Magic Keyboard. Its compact size and low profile, just makes it perfect, as it is super transportable and easy to quickly throw into a bag and bring along.
Apple Magic Trackpad
Something about all the gestures makes me feel like a wizard with special powers. I really like feeling like a wizard with special powers.
I recently made the switch from VS Code to IntelliJ. Before the M1 chip, IntelliJ was a bit of a resource hog, and would often hang; Now it's a breeze and it won't even get the fans spinning!
Warp is a relatively new terminal emulator. I've been using it for a little while and I am really enjoying it. It's super fast, and has a lot of nice features.
Great software for working with databases. Has saved me from building about a thousand admin interfaces for my various projects over the years.
Raycast is like Alfred, but better.
Keeping a clear and concise calendar is a must for me. I use my calendar both to keep track of my own schedule, but also as a todo list.
