The Perfect-ish COVID-19 Battlestation

07 Apr 2020

Home office with two monitors and a messy desk with a view out the window from a highrise. It is snowing. I was lucky enough to have a decent Battlestation for working from home.

A couple of years ago, I got rid of my desktop as my daily driver and replaced with a MacBook Pro. Since I also had a Thunderbolt 3 compatible MBP for work, I decided to go for a dock & eGPU setup so that I could use my monitors and peripherals with my work laptop AND my personal laptop.

This is a perfect setup since I can connect any laptop to my peripherals, Vega 56 eGPU, and the dual 4K LG Monitors with a single Thunderbolt 3 connection

Gear List:

For the most part, this setup is perfect for just switching to my personal laptop after I’m done with the work day. I only wish that Microsoft improve the eGPU support on Bootcamp so I could burn time with better games during the quarantine.
