  • Technology can vastly improve the quality of your home and life.
  • I’ve listed the computers, gadgets, and accessories I’m using on a personal basis in 2019 — and which ones I’d recommend.

It’s 2019: a new year, and a new opportunity to make your life better.

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to improve your quality of life, one of the simplest and best ways to do that is to invest in new tech.

I love trying and buying new tech. I do it as part of my job, but I also find technological progress exciting on a personal level. Seeing computers get smaller but vastly more powerful each year never ceases to amaze me — and I love discovering new accessories that improve upon those experiences in clever ways.

As someone who owns a ton of personal tech, I thought it would be fun to showcase the computers and gadgets I plan on using to get me through the next year. Maybe some of these items will spark joy in you, Marie Kondo-style — or maybe they’ll inspire you to consider your own personal tech, and possibly even level up.

My office computer: Apple Mac Mini 2018

I’d waited years to buy a new office computer, and in December, I finally pulled the trigger on Apple’s new Mac Mini. While I have a couple of gripes, I love the computer overall. It’s small, powerful, quiet, and nice to look at.

My office keyboard: Logitech Craft wireless keyboard

Logitech’s $200 Craft keyboard is one of the nicest keyboards I’ve ever used. The keys are backlit and tactile, and you can reassign keys to functions in the downloadable Logitech Options app. The keyboard is completely wireless, and feels good to use.

It also has a futuristic feature: a knob in the top left corner can perform different functions in different apps. In Photoshop, it lets you switch between brushes and tools; in Google Chrome, you can switch between tabs. It’s a cool touch.

My office mouse: Logitech G903 gaming mouse

I’ve been going between two Logitech mice lately: the ergonomic MX Vertical mouse, which you hold like a handshake, and the company’s G903 wireless gaming mouse, seen above. Most people will prefer the gaming mouse, and I do, too.

The G903 has a traditional mouse design, with a soft sloped top, angular sides, and a scroll wheel in the middle. Logitech even includes additional buttons for left-handed folks to modify the mouse to their liking.

The mouse supports up to five customizable profiles, where you can select your own functions and sensitivity levels — and you can switch between those profiles and sensitivity levels on the fly with on-board controls. It’s also wireless, which is a huge plus, and the Logitech G logo can light up in any color you want.
