Although Rämä studies numbers, mathematics and statistical analysis, he is also interested in photography. His love is film photography, not digital. Here you can see some of his works and learn more about his ideas about photography.
MacBook Pro accessories by number
Rämä loves Apple equipment very much. His setup post, “My Macbook Pro Setup for Studying and Editing,” contains a lot. We often see replacement peripherals from brands like Keychron, Logitech, and Razer in our settings, but not here.
Along with the 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro, Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and AirPods shown in the setup photo, he made sure to mention that it has an iPhone 12 and an Apple Watch SE. He added that he plans to buy AirTags soon. It will soon clear the Helsinki Apple Store.
Beware of cracking the screen
A colleague from Redditor had a useful warning for Rämäu about the screen of his MacBook Pro.
“Be careful with that privacy protection on your MacBook screen,” the person wrote. “They’re known to break MacBook screens by pressing the screen when they’re closed.”
“Good to know, thank you!” Rämä replied.
27-inch Lenovo screen
Rämä keeps his MacBook Pro open, on an aluminum stand on his desk, but he also leads it to a 27-inch monitor.
Its Lenovo Q27H-10 monitor is a low-blue, flicker-free low-light blue screen that relieves eye strain. It features a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, AMD FreeSync, a refresh rate of 75Hz and a response time of 4 ms. And it has a pretty interesting stand — more with a stylish modern side than your average monitor stand.
Problems increasing monitor resolution?
One Redditor triggered some issues with a similar monitor with the same pixel resolution.
“Don’t you think the images are too small on a 2560 × 1440 monitor screen?” Redditor asked. “I have the same resolution monitor and when I connect the laptop, things on the screen are too small or when I scale to look normal, it lowers the resolution and things are blurred.”
Rämä seemed to be aware of the problem, but it did not seem to present much trouble.
“Well yes, sometimes I know,” he replied. “But most of the time it’s perfectly fine.”
Answering another question about how the screen connects for use as an external monitor along with his MacBook Pro, he pointed out that he only needs a USB-C cable. And it keeps the laptop charged.
