Setup & Recommendations

I've been asked about some of my stuff so... why not share it with everyone? *contains affiliate links

Hardware

Headphones: Sennheiser HD 450BT - Wireless & Wired

Great quality, I've had them since 2017 and still working great.

In-Ear Headphones: Sony WF1000XM3

This is a quite jump in audio quality from my original Redmi Buds. I'll have to test the noise cancelling further in the streets, but I'm already enjoying them.

Screen: LG 25UM58-P

Having at least 1080p is great. Also, being ultrawide helps with having the website next to the IDE.

Keyboard: Logitech MX Keys Advanced

I've changed my K780 with this because I needed a full keyboard to work. Also, its build quality is outstanding. +backlight +multiple devices

Mouse: Logitech MX Master 2s - If you want the latest version Logitech MX Master 3

Great mouse, works on every surface I put it on, the wheel is fantastic and have some combinations with the MX Keys that adds a lot of functionality.

Notebook: Lenovo Ideapad 330-15ICH

This is my personal computer at the moment, works great. However I've made a couple of changes, I changed the only RAM stick (4GB) that is user replaceable with a 16GB stick and take it to 20GB and I've added my NVMe SSD as my OS drive (both will be shown down below). 1080p screen + GTX 1050-4GB (not shared) is more than enough for my casual gaming. After using it intensively for more than two years it stills holds up great.

RAM: Crucial RAM CT16G4SFRA266 16 GB DDR4 2666 MHz

This is the RAM I've added to my notebook. No complains.

NVMe SSD: Samsung 970 Pro

I actually have the 950 Pro but I couldn't find it in Amazon, however if I had to buy a new one I'll go with this one. Once you go NVMe you don't go back to a regular SSD.

Laptop base: ivoler aluminium base

Allows me to have the laptop screen at the same height as the monitor.

Powerbank: Xiaomi POWERBANK REDMI

For some reason I cannot find the link for the 20000MAh version, which is the one I have. However, I highly recommend this one.

USB Hub: UGREEN HUB USB C HDMI 4K, 5 En 1 Adaptador USB C HUB a 4K HDMI, 4 USB 3.0 5Gbps

Great hub, excellent build quality and has HDMI output.

Software & Services

OS: Windows 10 - Plain Simple... Windows 10.

VPN: Private Internet Access

Everytime I'm in a coffee shop or an airport I use this VPN to encrypt my conection. I also use it in places where streaming services like Spotify are blocked 🐱‍👤

Payments: Curve

Curve is great for a couple of reasons. It merges all your credit and debit cards into a single one, so you don't have to bring a hefty wallet everywhere. It also makes cards that are not compatible with Google/Apple Pay compatible and that's awesome. Furthermore, it has cashback for some services that can be combined with your own cards' benefits.
