My current tech stack is (at the time of writing this post) composed of the following:
PC’s & Notebooks
- My self-built gaming PC called “War Machine” (named after the Marvel character), currently in it’s 4th revision (Mk IV).
- CPU: Intel i7-8700K (6 cores @ 3.7GHz) Overclocked to about 4.0 Ghz
- RAM: 4 x Hyper-X Fury 8GB DDR4-2133
- GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti STRIX O11G-GAMING
- SSD: Samsung 970 PRO M.2 512GB
- HDD: 2x 2TB WD Black @7200 RPM
- My gaming Notebook, a Acer Predator Triton 500 PT515-51-703D. While it’s a powerful device, it’s still lightweight (In gaming notebook terms) and quite portable, which is very useful when performing less performance-intensive tasks like web browsing or watching movies.
- A 13″ MacBook Pro (2019) which I use for work and personal coding projects. It just a powerhouse (a very hot one though). You haven’t had a MacBook until you had a MacBook. The biggest downsides are the lack of I/O ports: 2x Thunderbolt 3 USB-C and 1x 3.5mm Headphone Jack (I use only Bluetooth Headphones since 2015…)
- A 2015-ish 17″ HP Notebook (don’t remember the exact model) which I use to run my private home server (For stuff like Nextcloud, GitLab and Plex)
Phones & Tablets
- A OnePlus 7 with 128GB of storage. The best Android experience I ever had (starting with the OnePlus 5T), close to Stock, combined with lots of useful extra features and customization, and beefy battery to get me through the day.
- The Galaxy Tab S5e, my first tablet ever. It has a good internals, a great 2K-ish display, and with the keyboard cover, a bluetooth mouse and in Dex mode the experience is pretty close to a small touch notebook (Obviously less powerful).
- The first-gen Apple AirPods, but in a Gen 2 case, since the original case died at some point (too heavy usage I guess). “Why AirPods?”, you may think. Because those are the only Bluetooth Earbuds that stay in my ear reliably, but I wan’t able to really test In-Ear models of other manufacturers.
- The Galaxy Watch (46mm). It’s my second Smartwatch, but I have a very good experience with it, It works reliably and the battery lasts for a work week normally. It lasts even longer to “just” show the time. It automatically tracks steps and recognizes workouts like biking.
