I am pretty happy with my current setup at my office and wanted to share with you all!
I have a standing desk from Office Depot. I can’t remember the brand, but it’s been really solid and it was a great deal (we bought 8 for people on our team).
I also work remotely during the week (I don’t have to be at my office to work) so I wanted a desk setup that would allow me to plug in my laptop and get working but nothing would be mission-critical on my desk that I could not get work done from anywhere. Thanks to Thunderbolt 3, I can connect everything with one cable and get right to work.
- LG Ultrawide monitor. I’ve had this for several years. It’s nothing too fancy but I LOVE the ultra-wide lifestyle. I was a dual monitor user for years but I don’t even think about that anymore with my ultra-wide monitor (I think its a 27’ model).
- Elgato Thunderbolt 3 dock. I got this dock in 2017 when I got my MacBook Pro 13’ (without Touch Bar). It’s a great dock and I have never had any issues.
- Logitech MX Master mouse. I still have my original MX Master mouse. It’s the best Mouse I have ever used and I will keep using it until it dies (and then replace it with the USB C version).
- Microsoft Sculpt keyboard. I have tendonitis and this keyboard has been such a great addition to my setup. It removes wrist strain and I can type on it for long periods of time without pain. Combined with Karibiner Elements app, I have the keys remapped to the correct Mac placement and it automatically changes when I connect to (and disconnect) from the dock.
I usually work with my laptop open on the stand, but I will work in clamshell mode when I need to get focused on a big project. I have all the cables run underneath the desk and everything stays nice and clean (at least the part I can see, haha).
If I am going to be working remotely for a few days away from the church (I am a Creative Director at a multi-site church) I will bring my keyboard and mouse with me. I’ve been really happy with this setup and I really do enjoy working on this setup. My 2017 MBP has been rock solid and I have not had any keyboard issues (knock on wood!).
