Hardware Used

I use an array of hardware for different needs. At the moment, I primarily use my Macbook Air to create all sorts of content. It is fast, light and user-first.

Additionally, I have my iPad Air 11-inch that fits nicely with Apple Magic Keyboard that I use to write notes and plans on the go. The Apple Pencil is also a great tool to plan and to take handwritten notes. I use the Apple Pencil to create diagrams that I use here and there in the blog articles.

My Apple ecosystem is totally complete with an iPhone and the AirPods Pro.

In other systems, I use the Mi Notebook now and often for Windows-related needs. I also play on an Xbox Seris S and a 27-inch 4K screen. I also have an HP's 21.5 inch monitor used mostly for web development needs.
