Gee! You sure have a lot of equipment. That must be expensive. I really like your setup. I take it you are into gaming? I love video games, though I haven't had much time to play lately, with college and all that. If I had the money, I would make a setup just like yours. Dual monitors and all. Maybe when I'm a millionaire, LOL.A good tool should release your creativity. For some, it's an ink pen with a nib on good paper. For me, it's Scrivener and Notion and a really responsive keyboard. (I write on a Logitech hybrid gaming keyboard with Romer GX Red switches that are a kind of a mechanical switch that feels like a membrane switch. The result is a smooth, fluid keystroke using Linear actuation which is great for double-tapping, rapid keystrokes in succession, and uninterrupted half-presses.)
I changed my OS from Windows 10 to MacOS because Scrivener 3 is most powerful and gets the earliest updates on the native Mac side. Plus, once I began using the latest MacOS on the latest 16" MacBook Pro, I was having so much fun that I only turn on my Windows gaming tower for gaming with friends. I do everything else on the Mac side.
Because I like my keyboard and mouse and webcam so much, I use a KVM switch to easily switch over between Windows and Mac, and use both with my dual monitors so I don't have to keep changing peripherals.
By the time I add in my iPad Pro, I have a system with great flexibility and power that's easy to use and helps make writing a lot of fun. (Which is key, as I spend a great deal of time writing. Now that I've kind of figured out what I'm doing, I'm trying to get as much written as fast as I can.)
