    i'd love to see more of these setup videos they're so cool! i love the idea, it gives your channel more soul than most other tech channels . I've been a subscriber for a few months now and i haven't seen any setup videos apart from these ones from about a year ago . please bring them back?

    Now that I found this playlist of videos… I must say, I love this vibe a lot more! Talking about other content creators, what they do, and their setups is awesome! Don't get me wrong, I love all of your other videos, but this is nice. 👌

    I like to do photography as well and I legitmately want to question how slow their workflow is running the older chips in the 2013 macbooks. My 7700hq and 1050 in my XPS is great for lightroom and photoshop, but still soemtimes run into slowdowns when using a lot of brush strokes. And those applications are actually better optimized on windows products now so I know it isn't an optimization problem.

    hurmm.. all apple fanboy list. Why all the photographer you pick use macbook?

  14. GBC

    Can you continue this series?

  15. Kyle Wong

    I know I'm finding these videos a bit late, but I would love to see updated videos for 2018! 🙂 love the videos, keep em coming! 🙂

  16. Johnny Dennis

  18. QeXDee

    I liked the last person , even though she dosent have a dslr camera but she still make due of what she has with custom lenses for her iPhone , Great job!

  19. QeXDee

    I'm a photographer but I use the Razer Blade instead of the MacBook

  20. AhmedSusu
