Hello everyone!

A fun and very interesting question, I got a little curious over.
What kind of equipment do you use when you program? And it is the same machine that you are playing in?

I use an Macbook Air 13 "and it is the same machine I play on but I also play other games on the Xbox one.

* Edit: more info about my computer if any one wants to know *
- OS: MacOS 10.9.2
- CPU: Intel i5-4250 1.30GHz
- Memory: 4GB
- GPU: Intel HD Graphics 5000 1024MB
- Resolution: 1440x900

(Sorry for my English i'm from Sweden)

You actually play games on mac? *applauds*

What is funny is that you didn't say anything about your specs. You just said the dimensions of your screen. My screen dimensions at home are like this small square screen with 1280x1024 res and I have no idea what size in inches that would be.

Today I turned into a pro programmer and I got like 22 inch monitor at work. It is also a mac.. I h8 macs... Godddd... Maybe it will change once I use one for a while.

Sorry! no need to be rude, I thought i would be a fun question if any one else then me was bored, and yes i play on my mac, i don't play heavy performance game like Battlefield 4 or games like that, i play games like CS GO or Starbound that is not so heavy in performance.

I hated Mac until recently when i got tired on my gaming desktop that was crashing all the time so i bought a Mac and now i love it, it is so comfortable writing code on.

A relatively ancient 5.5yr old system:
Win 7-64bit
i7 2.6Ghz
Nvidia Gtx280 with 1GB
A couple of modestly sized monitors 1900x1200 or thereabouts.
Half a terabyte of SSD

It still seems to run pretty nicely so I'm sticking with it till it explodes.

Will post long-ass keyboard rant in a few minutes. I'm laughing too hard at that setup image to make one just yet.

However, here's a P.S.A. From Jeviny's Keyboard Co:

Please, Please, Please, PLEASE take care of your keyboards. Rubberdome or not, every keyboard deserves some love and care.

Thank You,

I thought there was a decent possibility of the pic being taken from somewhere else, even if he re-uploaded it to JGO, but I let the fantasy lie.

Gaming on a Macbook Air? That should be an capitol capital offense!

All these threads are, are thinly veiled penis contest threads. Tongue

I posted my penis---err desktop already in the March 2014 edition of "show me your genitals" though, if you absolutely want to see it.
http://www.java-gaming.org/topics/what-s-your-rig/32403/view.html

But in all seriousness, we get at least one of these threads every few months it seems. Smiley
