Los Angeles-based designer Johan Loekito has three MacBooks on his desk. Yes, three!

It may sound bonkers to have three MacBooks on one desk but his hardware collection is more modest that it first appears. His main machine is a 2018 MacBook Pro and it’s a company laptop. He has a 2015 MacBook Pro for personal stuff, and a 2014 MacBook Air that is his partner’s.

The focus of his setup is a Dell UltraSharp U2720Q 27-inch 4K Monitor. It is mounted to his desk by a VIVO LCD Monitor Desk Mount Stand.

The desk itself is an Ikea Hilver Tabletop with Lerberg Legs. The Bamboo tabletop looks great and gives him lots of room to work with. On top of the Ikea desk, his MacBook Pro sits atop a Rain Design mStand Laptop Stand. It holds the laptop at a comfortable height and the curved design allows him to store stuff underneath. His personal MacBook is held up by a Omoton Vertical Laptop Stand. His aesthetically-pleasing chair is the Steelcase Series 1.

Loekito pairs an Apple Magic Keyboard with a Logitech M720 Triathlon Multi-Device Wireless Mouse. He can pair the Logical M720 with three devices so he can scroll between them at a click of a button. Its buttons can also withstand up to 10 million clicks, a true triathlete. The fact that both his UltraSharp and MacBook have USB-C ports means that he does not have to splurge for a hub.

He uses the HomePod as his desk speaker. Although not ideally suited for a desktop, like a regular Bluetooth speaker, the HomePod does stream third-party services and AirPlay can fill the rest of the void. It also sounds great.
