Its getting common for personal blogs to have a section outlining the various hardware and software used on a day to day basis, so here's my list.


Macbook Pro
I've used Mac since around 2012 after the company I worked for moved everyone onto them. I still use the MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011) I bought from them when they upgraded. Its showing its age now - no retina, battery not holding charge, and it won't upgrade to anything above High Sierra.
Luckily I have been provided with a 2017 MBP by my current employer so I use that for anything they pay me to work on, and my personal MBP for personal projects.
I recently bought a Viewsonic VX3211-2K-MHD 2K WQHD 32 inch monitor. It handles full resolution from my usb-c Macbook Pro. The downside is that the screen on my 2011 MBP looks HUGE! Its a good monitor for the price.
Keyboard & Mouse
I have a standard Apple Wired Keyboard - the full one with numberpad. Mouse is a Logitech M185
Desk & Chair
I've fitted an old kitchen worktop to the wall which gives me a perfect height and depth to work from.
I have a LUKRACER gaming chair which I bought when working from home during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
I have a large vinyl record collection and listen to them on a red Pro-ject Essential III turntable hooked up to an ART-PRO Phono Pre-amplifier. This is then fed into a pair of Moukey Studio Bookshelf Speakers which sound really good.
