The heart of Merényi Márk’s setup is a 2018 Mac mini. Even though it’s a base-line model, this little Mac that could executes every task he throws at it.

Márk recently ditched his LG UlraWide Monitor and replaced it with an LG 32UK550-B 32-inch 4K VA Monitor, which is made for gaming. He prefers the standard 16:9 aspect ratio of his new monitor when playing on his Xbox. In terms of fewer viewing angles that come with a VA (Vertical Alignment) panel, he sits right in front of it, so it’s not an issue. And he “expected far worse viewing angles and colors from [a VA panel],” so it came as a “pleasant surprise” to him that it’s so good.

Márk rocks a Magic Keyboard (with Numerical Keypad) and Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse. This is the ideal duo for anybody who values efficiency. He likes his MX Master 3 so much that, along with his monitor, they are they favorite parts of his rig. When conducting Zoom meetings he uses a Logitech C270 Webcam. This webcam gives him good visual quality without breaking the bank.

Since Mark is a gamer he, of course, uses gaming headphones. And his headphones of choice are the Razer Kraken Gaming Headset. These headphones are reliable and comfortable enough to last long sessions of Warzone. When he is not gaming, he uses a pair of AirPods Pro.
