What I Use

This is a small list of the hardware I use.


The laptop I carry with me everywhere is my Lenoxo Thinkpad X230. Old, but awesome. This thing can probably survive an atomic bomb, and is good enough to me. It has 8gb RAM, and a 120GB SSD that I installed. Do you remember how great it was when we could fix and upgrade our own computers?

I have another laptop, and this one is much more powerful. It’s an Avell (it’s a Brazilian brand) with 32GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 512GB SSD, 16GB Intel Optane memory. It also has a GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, so this is also my main gaming machine. The battery on this thing only lasts an hour, so I never take it off the office desk it’s on. I work here when I want to sit at a proper desk.

I also have a Raspberry Pi 3 hidden behind my living room TV. It runs Home Assistant, Miniflux, a DNS server, Syncthing and Node-RED.

Gaming Consoles

My only gaming console at the moment is the Nintendo Switch. I love how portable it is, and I don’t need ultra high quality graphics. I only care if the game is fun.

I had a Playstation 4 that I sold in 2019 to buy a used Xbox One. And in November 2020 I sold that Xbox too.


I currently have two phones.

My main phone at the moment is an iPhone 11. No matter how much I try to get away from Apple, iOS is miles ahead of Android in almost everything. But I don’t use many Apple services, I try to avoid being locked up in their platform.

I also have an Android phone: a Samsung Galaxy S10+. I’m trying to sell it online, but while it doesn’t happen I use it to do some comparisons between iOS and Android when doing some tasks.
