The Ultimate Desk Setup For the 'Work-from-home' Accountant

The Ultimate Desk Setup For the 'Work-from-home' Accountant


This year I’ve carefully researched and curated the gear for what I’m calling The Ultimate Desk Setup For the β€˜Work-from-home’ Accountant.

This setup is a major upgrade for me since I previously was doing everything from a tiny 11" MacBook Air. Now I have so much screen real estate I’m not having to tab between apps as much (or squint), plus a 10-key and ergonomic mouse, it’s boosting my productivity.

The setup I’m loving:

πŸ’» Laptop: Apple MacBook Air (13-inch Retina display, 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5, 256GB)

πŸ–₯ Monitor: LG 38UC99-W 38-Inch 21:9 Curved UltraWide QHD+ IPS Monitor with Bluetooth Speakers

πŸ–± Mouse: Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse

⌨️ Keyboard: Apple Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad

Laptop stand: Twelve South Bookarc for MacBook | Space-Saving Vertical Desktop Stand for Apple Notebooksο»Ώ

When you try any of the offers on this site, I may receive compensation from the company.
