My Work Setup

• Computers

Look at how many screens I’ve got!

This post will be contain a lot of pictures of my current workstation at Autopilot. Everyone gets their own workstation (no hot desking thank god!) and can make it their own.

Hardware

Laptop

Apple Macbook Pro 15-inch Mid-2019 with Touchbar

  • Intel Core i9 Processor
  • 32GB RAM
  • 256GB SSD
  • Geek Bench Score: 5330 Single Core & 26412 Multi-core

Monitors

Using all four ports of my Macbook, I’ve got five monitors:

  • Samsung SE790C Ultrawide in the middle
  • Dell U2715H in Landscape
  • Two Dell U2715H in Portrait
  • The Macbook’s screen

Mouse

The Logitech G603. Comfortable. Back & forward buttons. Bluetooth. 18 month battery.

My mouse pad is also a large soft red Artisan HIEN.

Keyboard

A Kogan Cherry MX Brown keeb. It’s cheap ($40 AUD) and does the job. I’m so embarrassed by the brand I put some tape over it. They no longer sell this anymore.

Dongles

Satechi Type-C Multi-Port Adapter 4K with Ethernet. It’s the only one I’ve found not to flicker the screens.

Headphones

Bose QC35s (Gen 1) noise cancelling headphones. Perfect for working in a noisy office.

Blitzwolf BW-FWC2. The only one I could find with a USB Type-C port.
