The weekend is here, which means it’s time to share another featured Mac desk setup! This time we’ve got the awesome Mac Pro setup of OS X programmer and freelance book writer Buick W. Let’s learn a bit more about the hardware in this setup and which iOS and OS X apps are must-haves as well.

(By the way, for those who haven’t seen a new Mac Pro yet in person, you can get an idea of just how compact the 2013 Mac Pro is by looking at it alongside the 10oz can next to it, there’s a lot of power in that little package!)

Tell us a bit about the hardware in your Mac setup

The Cinema Display stand was removed and the display has been mounted to an adjustable swivel base, the display is pictured here flush with the desk:

What do you use your Apple gear for? Why’d you choose this setup?

I’m an OS X programmer and freelance book writer, one of my books is called OS X Masters “OS X 高手进阶”, it is a bestseller OS X book in the Chinese market. I need a tough Mac for the programming work, so the Mac Pro became my first choice. As for the writing work, a MacBook Pro with Retina display is the best choice for editing.

    That’s what he usually does for Chinese Mac users. And he did so much to influence those users to enhance their skills or ability by Weibo. That is Just Google it! Nice!
