These are all the tools I have in my toolbox and that I make use of every day for my job. These are the gear and tools I need to efficiently turn energy and caffeine into code.
- Macbook Pro M1 – 16GB Memory, 512GB SSD
- Logitech MX Master 3
- Logitech G513 Carbon
- Galaxy Buds Pro
- Dell Curved 34 Inch Monitor
The M1 Mac
I had recently upgrade my 2017 15″ Macbook Pro, and to be completely honest, I didn’t notice any big improvements besides the longer battery life. It sure builds my projects faster, but I would have hope for the difference to just be bigger. I opted for the 13″ version this time, it’s so thin and light! It’s always with me, I carry it everywhere around the house and outside as well.
Logitech Mx Master 3
I was using the Magic Mouse but after seeing some reviews, I decided to go for the famous Mx Master 3. It sure is new, but the MX series still follow the same design as the original one. I do miss the gestures of the Magic Mouse, although the MX 3 has gestures too, it was way more natural on the apple mouse – I just couldn’t stand the grip of it.
Logitech G513 Carbon
This is my daily driver, although I confess I have a keyboard addiction, I have some others and keep swapping them, using them on the mood. Still, I find this one the best for working as it has a full layout and is very comfortable – the tactile Gx keys feel great!
Galaxy Buds Pro
These came out with the new phone so I use them for everything. I like the autonomy and the noise-canceling feature – especially awesome both in a noisy office or at home when you’re trying to rest or you just need some silence. I find myself a lot of times with them on my ears, but the music has already stopped long ago.
Dell Curved 34 Inch Monitor
You don’t need such a big screen until you try one out – you’ll feel miserable working on smaller screens. This might be my favorite from the toolbox as it allows me to have three code editor tabs at the same time or 3 different windows of the regular size all side by side.
If you’re curious about what other tools I use, I made a post about the editor that I am using for web development on https://andrevarandas.dev/editor/.
That is all for now 😊
