I haven't had a laptop of my own for the last five years, using an iPad/iPad Pro with a keyboard instead. But with the release of the first Apple Silicon Macs, I decided to spend the money on a MacBook Pro. It's incredibly fast, the battery lasts for -- what feels like -- multiple days on end, and I haven't run into any major issues with apps. I still use my iPad Pro and leave my MacBook Pro docked to an external monitor most of the time. But I wanted to move to something that provided flexibility.

My laptop is the 15-inch MacBook Pro. I used to love it. Now, because it isn't the 16-inch version and doesn't have M1, I'm coming up with reasons to hate it. But I can't. It's a superb workhorse, plowing through 4K video or heavy Photoshop workloads with ease. The only thing that brings it to its knees is Google Chrome.

The irony of having an untraditional workspace (a sailboat) is that our setup is marvelously commonplace. I use a lean, grab-and-go work kit composed of gear that would make most American high schoolers probably roll their eyes. My aging MacBook Pro does most of the heavy lifting, which for my journalism work means lots of calls and emails and some light photo and audio editing.

While my overclocked PC is used frequently, the system I rely on the most is my MacBook Pro, which has proven to be a decent workhorse for everyday tasks. The particular model I use is a 13-inch MacBook Pro, sporting a 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Plus graphics, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD storage, and a Retina display.

I've used many different desktop systems over the years, but in my last two corporate positions, I've moved from PCs over to MacBooks. The MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019 edition) is my current system, which I have permanently docked to my twin monitors.
