Now I can write posts and surf the web with ease, too :-)

For those interested, here are the components I used:

  • Table: SANWA Supply DESKH021 (Amazon)
  • Chair: G-AIR 65090108 (Amazon)
  • Monitor: LG 34UM59-P (Amazon)
  • Trackball: Logitech M570 Wireless Thumbball (Amazon)
  • Keyboard: IBM Model M, 1997 build (Lexmark)
  • Dock: Henge Docks Metal for Retina 15″ 2013 (Amazon), modified for MagSafe 1 (so I can carry around my MagSafe 2 charger and have this one on the setup all the time) and an mDP-HDMI cable)

And the following are behind the scenes, but they work really well for me and I can recommend them without any doubt:

  • USB Hub: TopLonger USB3.0 Hub (Amazon)
  • Power tap: Elecom 3-port tap (Amazon)
  • Headphones: AKG K240 Studio (Amazon)

I went with Japanese companies because I haven’t been to any other countries, at least not to any that impressed me as much as Japan.
