Ex-Google The TheTechLead is a perfect, dreamy, minimalist, and modern man who shows you his basic desk. I use a Macbook 15″ laptop and show you how I set up my working environment, and this might work for any laptop or desktop computer. Hope you get some ideas, and let me know if you have suggestions in the comments!

My setup trends towards more travel/mobile friendly, since traditionally I’ve been on the go a lot — that’s why I favor laptops over desktops, portable hard drives, and lack of external monitor. I love the feeling of being able to grab my tech, and booking a long trip or even spending the day at a cafe and still being productive.
