Why would I need anything better? I just use it for taking notes at uni and browsing the web.

Battery life is insane good and it charges with micro USB, so get fucked.

heavy ass workstation laptops. Used to think they were for idiots.
Then I got my precision, and damn it's nice to run everything in the box. First piece of hardware that feels actually hard, no flex like chinkpads. and of course, it's heavy as fuck, but I'm not a gimpy twink so I can horse the fucker around fine.

smartphones
I didn't get a smartphone until they were already commonplace and I stick to the budget options. I still don't like them, or rather I strongly dislike the way people use them, but having access to my email and maps on the go is useful. I hate the way they have permeated society and made people fucking horrible drivers.

I predicted mechanical keyboards blowing up in popularity years ago. They still aren't what I would consider mainstream, because your average office is still using rubber dome keyboards (and usually cheapo ones.) But in the span of only a few years you have had hundreds of new products put out in this space that was basically completely dormant for over a decade.

clit mouse thing in the keyboard. Couldn't understand why you would want them until I had to use a laptop in a clean room and my gloves made the touchpad useless.

I felt like I was taking a gamble when I ordered my precision, but I knew I couldn't trust lenovo's quality anymore (plus the part selection was worse and more expensive), and HP is a fucking joke.
I was mostly worried because I used to have to work on Lattitudes and Vostros all day and those things SUUUUUCKED

Super fucking happy with my precision though. Well, mostly. The intel graphics don't have control of the hdmi audio so if I want to plug it into my tv i have to disable the intel graphics entirely in the bios, and it has a tendency to BSOD when I wake it up from sleep if I had IntelliJ open, but I'm more willing to blame that on Java or Windows.
And it could stand to have better "I am typing so ignore my wrist touching the trackpad" detection.

other than that though, 13 hour battery life with a xeon and switchable quatro graphics is tite

Mechanical keyboards. Rubber domes are just fine, and very cost efficient and durable enough. But after using a friend's PC while visiting, and enjoying the consistency and feel of the keys, I've had to conclude that spending about €90,- on a keyboard is totally justified when you spend so much time using it.

What's your showering playlist? And do you have separate ones for morning and evening? Just curious.

In the morning I like to listen to a quick news broadcast from the morning. Depending on how tired I am, I either listen to some cheery music or something calmer to ease me into sleep. And when I'm going out or something, I listen to a pumped dance pop etc playlist.

One weird side effect is that I've started to jack off in the shower less. Though that could also be because I've started dating so it hasn't been as "necessary". But I still feel like it coincides more with the purchase of my waterproof speakers than the dating.

Elitebooks and certain thinkpads are really nice, actually.

Heck I love using the command line. I can quickly access stuff, go through my documents, compile code, etc... I remember I used to use notepad++ for taking quick notes but now I just open up vim, type what I want, then save and quit. It's simple and works well for me.

I will admit, wireless controllers have proven me wrong. I still prefer wired cause of all the trouble I had as a kid playing games online with a wireless mouse but, at least in regards to consoles, wireless ain't that bad. I like the way the PS3 did it especially. Having the choice to go from wired to wireless in a flash and the wire also charges it. I'm also surprised I actually use the touchpad on the PS4 controller. I thought it looked stupid but I use it quite often when games support it.

Stylus for modern smartphones

In my case, it is the Note 5. Great features like screenshot built in to the device, and it also increases typing speed immensely.
