Samsung Note10+, wireless fast charger, and 45W ultra-fast charger.
See any significant gain with the 45W charger?
My original 25W typically takes just over an hour (I don't usually charge it from 0% usually somewhere around 10%)

Yes, especially to get to 80%, which is where I try to charge it to.

LOL. My dining room table works great. One day I'll invest in a proper office setup, but so far this has been fine.

Just a laptop from this deal, and it's awesome:

Occasionally will supplement with my 13" MacBook Pro or iPad. But my iPhone is also fine for small things.

I've heard that many people prefer the MX2. (I may be wrong but I think either @jj1000 or @AJK said they prefer MX2?)

Accurate. Although I think Dan was likely referring to MX Master series in general.

I have both. I prefer MX3 simply because the side buttons are easier to press for me. I don't mind USB-C either.

Gotta be careful not to sound like you're bragging/showing off. If you tell us that you got it all for pennies, then at least it'll be the right kind of bragging/showing off for this forum. ;D

My setup has degraded considerably going from work to home, especially since my basement is being refinished, so I'm set up in my dining room temporarily.

Chair - Work: Herman Miller Aeron; Home: Dining room armchair

Desk - Work: Motorized sit/stand desk; Home: 4ft height adjustable Lifetime table

Keyboard/Mouse - Work: Logitech K350/Anker Vertical Mouse; Home: Logitech MK270 combo

Monitor(s) - Work: Dual ~24" [don't remember brand/specs] monitors + 14" laptop screen; Home: LG 29" FHD Ultrawide 21:9 [+work laptop screen sometimes]

PC - Work: Lenovo T450s [~5yrs old but fully loaded back then - been meaning to get a company upgrade sooner than later]; Home: Entry-mid level desktop [put together myself from components for dirt cheap]

Headset - Jabra Pro 9465; Plantronics Blackwire C720 + MDA220 [Still have both and used them at different times at work and home. Both setups allow me to connect to and switch between the PC, office phone, and cell phone (bluetooth) simultaneously. All were bought used on eBay for dirt cheap.]

Obviously all BF purchases and using Dell credits and the like :)

Home is office and office is home for me.

Setup at work: Self built Intel 8700k rig. Dual 24" Dell IPS minimal bezel screens. Random Amazon office chair.

Setup at home: AMD Phenom X6 self built rig. Only 4g of RAM ;). Never got around to adding more. With an SSD it's still doing fine. One 24" and one 19" screen. Ruckus AP :).
