What I Use

Last Updated: 7 April 2024

Main Laptop

My daily driver machine is a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 3, with 16GB RAM and upgraded to a 2TB Samsung SSD. I bought it for the excellent keyboard, physical clicking trackpad, and user-repairability. I've just added a brand new battery after 6 years as well. It helps that it is widely supported by alternative operating systems (Linux, Haiku, BSDs).

I have far too many of these to list, but my full Equipboard is here. I'm particularly a fan of smaller companies that use no DRM or online activation, are cross-platform, and have great customer support.
