In 2020 I made the switch from MacOS to Windows. What else I used this year, I’ll list you in this post.
This year is the first time I’ve used a desktop PC again. Because I like the MacMini approach, it became an Intel NUC. This has the following specifications:
- Intel Core i7-10710U Processor with 6 Cores and 1,10 GHz Baseclock
- 2x 8 GB Kingston HyperX RAM with 2666 MHz
- 500 GB Samsung Evo 850 SSD Storage
- Intel UHD Graphics & WIFI Cat. 6
Planned upgrades in the coming months: an eGPU and conversion of the SSD to a 1 TB M.2 SSD
Since I am planning to commute to work in Nuremberg or the surrounding area soon, I also have a laptop. This comes from Lenovo and is the Legion 5 model with the following specifications:
- AMD Ryzen 5 4600H Processor with 6 Cores and up to 4GHz
- 2x 8 GB RAM with 3200 MHz
- 500 GB M.2 SSD Storage
- GeForce GTX 1650 graphic card
- 120Hz Display, Matt Glass
Planned upgrades in the coming months: Replacing the 500 GB M.2 SSD with a 1 TB M.2 SSD and installing a second 1 TB M.2 SSD.
03. Smartphone / Tablet
My smartphone is an Apple iPhone 11 Pro in gray with 64 GB. Apple still has the greatest update lifespan. My iPhone will receive updates for up to 5 years. I don’t currently use or own a tablet. An Apple iPad with LTE functionality is planned again.
Sennheiser is the headphone brand for me, whether as a DJ or commuter on the train. For music production, DJing and listening to music at home, I have the wired Sennheiser HD-25 headphones.
When I’m on the go, I use the first generation of Sennheiser Momentum TrueWireless headphones.
For years my Nikon D3300 DSLR camera with a Nikon Nikkor 18-55 lens and some Neewer filters has accompanied me on photo tours.
When choosing my devices, especially this year and with a view to my professional situation, longevity, security, quality and with PCs / laptops the possibility of being able to change many components are important to me.
In addition to the devices themselves, I also have other add-ons, such as 1 TB WD My Passport hard drives, Porsche Design LaCie 2 TB hard drives and a Yamaha Audiogram3 sound card for music.
