What I Use

I get a lot of questions asking me what I use and/or recommend in the technology realm, so I thought I would take some time and answer that question here. I'll lead in by saying I'm not a gammer, so if you're looking for a gaming-machine this is not the article you are looking for.


Dell XPS 13, i7 QuadCore 8GB ram, 250GB HDD.

2009 MacBook Pro with a 13" display with dual core processor, 8GB of ram and 500GB HDD.


At work I run a pair of Dell Optiplex 960s Each with a Quad core i7 processor and 16gb of ram, each machine boots to a 64gb SSD with a 1TB HDD. One machine boots to Windows 7 (mostly for access to enteprise stuff) and the other Ubuntu Linux. Both machines run a number virtual machines and local servers.
