At work I use an Early 2015 15" Retina Macbook Pro. Its loaded with 16 GB of RAM (1600 MHz DDR3) and 500 GB of SSD. It also has NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M but I don't yet what to do with it.

At home I use a Late 2016 13" Macbook Pro (2.9Ghz Core i5, 8GB 2133Mhz RAM, Intel Iris 550) with TouchBar connected to a Samsung U24E590D 4K monitor.

Currently I use an iPhone 6S+.
