My optimized nomad setup 2021
Even if I prefer to work from home.
Sometimes I need to work from other places, but I still try to get the best setup to be more productive.
I love the battery life and the low consumption of the new M1 Pro CPU.
16” makes all the difference when used as the main screen.
The best laptop stand out there, collapsible and lightweight.
Hard to find external displays with anything better than 1920x1080 resolution.
So I’d instead use this as a ~13” retina display.
It also becomes my most portable device when going to meetings (instead of dragging my 16” MacBook)
Yes, I even got a second one for the iPad to have both at the same height.
I would not recommend carrying this keyboard for everyone. It’s pretty heavy
with the wood palm rest.
But I am so used to working with this every day that I feel restricted without it.
I never use a mouse on Mac OS, and this way, I get the same experience when working on the MacBook.
I won’t hesitate to take this with me if I have any calls planned as it’s so tiny (lipstick-sized) and lightweight.
I will bring those along if I plan to work for a long time or in a noisy environment.
Otherwise, I always have my AirPods Pro in my pocket when needed.
