    @bahua how is your experience with MacBook pro! I'm thinking to switch from Windows soon. Your advice?

    With an extra monitor and a proper keyboard, MacOS is brilliant for development, or just existing on the desktop in general. iterm2 and alfred are both absolutely brilliant.

    @bahua How do you deal withthe missing ports? I usually have a mouse, keyboard, one or two screens and headphones plugged in. Sometimes an additional USB drive.

    Do you have a bajillion dongles or only work at a desk with a doxking station? Also how is the keyboard? Heard mixed things

    I have an ugly-AF dongle hub, and my own rage against Apple for being complete assholes on this front. In their purported attempts to "simplify" their machines, they've just created a huge reliance on ugly-AF dongles, and Tim Cook has smirked at us all for being so primitive as to use more than the shitty keyboard on his laptop.

    Let me make it clear: I only use a mac because it has been provided for me by my employer. I could never justify this much hassle to use something I purchased with my own money.

    A cheap and old laptop, with an SSD and 8GB RAM (that’s the only good part about it)

    I feel like I need to mention my actual favorite dev laptop. The one I spent real money on, and that continues to amaze me, every time I use it. It's an absolute pleasure to use it. Yesterday I was working from home and I took my son to a beer bar where I met up with my wife and daughter, and I kinda hoped that slack would light up and someone would need something from me, just so I could pull out the laptop and use it and that it would be great.. And it did, so I did, and it WAS great.

    I'm talking about the System76 Oryx Pro. It's an expensive unit, so I understand it isn't for everyone. With the options I selected, mine cost just over 2800 USD to ship to me, and to-- you know, own. You can get it pretty barebones, but still extremely capable for I think $1600 or $1700. But I wanted that sweet sweet geforce 1080 and extra storage and nvme and memory, and that stuff don't come cheap in laptop form.

    Linux, power, portability, and thanks to some tweaks I implemented: battery life.

    Using a 2015 mac at work. It’s one of the super decked out versions of that sweet, sweet time where mac’s still had I/O. At home I have an old dell latitude e6330 running Ubuntu 18.04, 120gb ssd, 8gb ddr3 1333mhz laptop ram I found somewhere 🤔, and it’s like a 3rd or 4th gen i5-mobile variant.

    And I have a Dell G7 for mobile gaming. It’s got an intel i7-8750h (woot woot hexa-core), 256gb ssd boot drive, 1TB data/game drive, a 1060 6gb gfx card, and shit-for-battery life 😂

    And I have a micro tower pc at home running on an i3-2100 proc, 6GB ram, a 128gb samsung evo pro ssd, with. 256gb ssd, and a 750gb shdd for the game drives, with a 1060 half card 3gb version. She’s a little jank-box but I love her all the same.

    Lastly, I’m using an old AF, Lenovo T110 as a server running steamcache on it. https://github.com/steamcache/...
