Video overview of my overall gear and transit setup for recording in office and on the go.
Mouse & Keyboard Options
I use a number of keyboards and mice, trackballs, etc depending on what I am doing at a particular time. When remote in a coffee shop and I need a solid pointer option, I use a trackball. I don’t need to move it all over a space like a mouse, and it’s not as annoying as a trackpad. For any office style environment, at home or at an actual office, I use a silent mouse with high DPI or a gaming mouse with click and mechanical keyboard if it isn’t necessary to be super silent. I’ve broken out the gear below into the respective options for each environment, by environment.
- Coffee Shop or Remote Co-working Office with limited desk space.
- Logitech m570 Wireless Trackball - https://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/wireless-trackball-m570
- Keyboard - That which is on the laptop, generally either a Macbook Pro 2015 Chicklet Keyboard, XPS 13, or XPS 15 Keyboard.
- Office - Where keyboard and click sounds aren’t an issue.
- Razor Huntsman Mechanical Keyboard - https://www.razer.com/gaming-keyboards-keypads/razer-huntsman
- Razor Naga Trinity Gaming Mouse - https://www.razer.com/gaming-mice/razer-naga-trinity and Drivers https://openrazer.github.io/
- Office - Where silence is important.
- Logitech m331 Silent Wireless Mouse - https://compositecode.blog/2018/01/29/logitech-m331-silent-mouse/
- Microsoft 4000 Ergo Keyboard - https://www.microsoft.com/accessories/en-us/products/keyboards/natural-ergonomic-keyboard-4000/b2m-00012 Albeit I must say this keyboard isn’t as silent as I’d like, because I routinely find myself pressing the keys very hard. Banging away does not a quite keyboard make. :-/

Sadly, as of last week (cember 15th~) this machine’s power supply arced out over a surge or something. A replacement power supply has arrived, which I swapped out, however now the motherboard appears to be toast also. The troubleshooting process continues, slow, steady, and unproductive so far. In the meantime it’s all laptops for all the streaming.
