The 2023 Productivity Workstation

Around this time last year, I wrote a post outlining my 2022 productivity workstation. Since then, I’ve made significant changes, including the desk, monitors, and peripherals. I utilize every item listed for tasks ranging from content creation, media consumption, programming, video conferencing, and general-purpose computing.

Here’s an outline of what drives my tech workflow in 2023.
