I use 2 laptops.

1) Personal laptop (Lenovo Y50-70)

  • Core i7 4710HQ 2.5 GHz, GTX 860M, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD
  • Running Windows 10 Pro
  • Have used it since college. These days, it's my primary media consumption device. It's mostly used for learning, working on side projects, Netflix, Photoshop and MS Office when required.

2) Work laptop (A Dell machine)

  • Core i5 6500U 2.5 GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD
  • Running KDE neon, Ubuntu Bionic, Manjaro and preinstalled Windows 10 Home which I haven't booted in a while
  • I use a 24" BenQ monitor as my primary screen and a mechanical keyboard at work
  • Used for work-related development

3) Raspberry Pi 3
Before getting Netflix and Prime Video, I was using it as media server. I also have 2 older models, whereabouts of which I don't remember.

4) iPhone X
I have been trying to minimize my phone usage for a while. To read I bought a Kindle last year.

5) A dead Google Nexus 5
Battery has been dead for an year now. It's plugged-in whenever I get an itch for learning Android development.

I am planning to buy an iPad for bed usage. Laptop in bed doesn't seem too good for my eyes or posture.
