My Hardware and Software

Main machine


On this machine I have a 256 GB SSD drive, it is not a big one that's why I have only one Parallels virtual Win 10 machine on it that I use every day. All my other virtual machines are on a External USB C Samsung T5 drive that I attach when I need it. The Macbook Pro is attached to a Wavlink UG69PD2 docking station with two iiyama 27 inch PL2730H screens attached with HDMI and a normal keyboard and mouse.  

Reason that I use a Mac is that the machine is very quiet and the Mac OS is very stable. But I must say that I am impressed by my second machine the Microsoft SurFace Pro.

I use Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac Business to run my virtual Windows and virtual Mac machines on my MacBook Pro. This is really great software to run the operating system that you want.


Second machine

Surface Pro

I have also a SurFace Pro 4, I7, 16 gb with 256 gb SSD drive, great machine to do all your work on the full version of Windows 10. I have a external monitor(24 inch), keyboard and mouse attached with the Microsoft Surface Dock.



Because I want to read my mail on my SurFace, iPhone, MacBook and on every virtual machine if needed I use Microsoft 365 Business Basic so it is very easy to get your mail on the machine you want.
