Current workspace

I’m currently using a Lenovo laptop with a 17-inch screen. Yes, it’s a huge and heavy laptop, but I got it from the company I’m working for. I’m using it more like a stationary desktop computer, not for traveling.

After experiencing health issues due to my prolonged sitting in front of a computer screen during my IT university studies, I pay a lot more attention to the ergonomics of my workspace. I invested in a proper adjustable office chair - Rim Flexi. The laptop sits on a cardboard box, so the screen is higher, at my eye level. Behind the box, there is a kitchen under-cabinet light as a screen backlight to illuminate the wall and to prevent eye fatigue.

On my desk, there are also some peripheral devices, such as external keyboard (Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000), mouse (Logitech MX Master 2S), graphic tablet (Wacom Intuos), and some old Logitech speakers. And headphones, of course, when a family member decides to watch TV, so I can work peacefully and deeply. I'm using RHA MA750 for now.

Future plans

Recently I’ve been looking for a way to upgrade this workspace setup. I can be pretty productive just with the mid-size laptop screen, but I think it would be nice to finally buy a proper external monitor — well, I’m a professional!
