Larger monitor Dec 28, 2017

I love being able to compare several documents on my big iMac monitor. It's time for an upgrade. I want to go even bigger.

I cannot point just one answer, all these changes were important.

notebooks Dec 28, 2017

Instead of 'gameable' desktops--finally--started using 'non-gameable' notebooks with external 22"+ monitors and full-sized keyboards.

All of these Dec 28, 2017

I have gradually improved until I got a decent system. And BTW it never ends.
1. A better and faster desktop.
2. A superwide screen
3. A "director's" chair
4. Hired a better internet connection
5. An SSD drive
6. A mechanical keyboard

Next moves already planned:
1. Chaging the internet connection to optical fiber
2. Air conditionier
3. A better printer because mine is a median Epson
4. Switch to a better and newer computer again

Monitor and keyboard Jan 9

My computers have always been fast, but I've recently switched to a large (43 in) monitor and a mechanical keyboard with cherry MX blue switches and the only thing I regret is not doing it sooner.
