A great all-rounder, Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 4 (7/10, WIRED recommended) has top-notch battery life for a 15-inch laptop. It runs fast and cool, and we love the big 3: 2 aspect ratio screen. We also like the retention of the USB-A and headphone ports, but there is no Thunderbolt and the keyboard is not satisfactory for typing.
Do you primarily work from a web browser? Then there’s a good chance that a Chromebook will suffice (if you like to use Google Chrome). You can access Android apps, but it’s all about Chrome. The Spin 713 has a fast Core i5 chip and excellent battery life. It’s one of our favorite Chromebooks.

It is one of the more affordable (and interesting) standing desks. You get height presets, an eco-friendly chipboard top, and a motor that gets it up and down quite smoothly and quietly. Hard to ask for much more at this price.

I have been using this simple mouse for almost two years and it still looks like new.

The Roccat Kone Pro Air is one of our favorite gaming mice, not only because it has some weird semi-transparent LED buttons, but also because of its extremely satisfying click. If you’re the type of person who gets an emotional high with clickable mechanical keyboards, then this mouse pairs well with your sensory palette. This is the lowest we have seen.

The Razer Huntsman Mini is my favorite of this size for gaming. It’s just as responsive and fast as a full-size keyboard, but it takes up much less desktop space.
