It's getting increasingly common for developers to have a list of hardware and software that they use on a daily basis. This isn't comprehensive by any means, but it's what I've been using recently.
I currently use two Macbook computers; one for personal development and a company issued one for Oodle development. My personal computer is a 2014 MacBook Pro (15 inch) that I bought in my last year of college after I gifted my older MacBook Pro to my parents. My wife mostly uses this one now, I use it from time to time.
My company issued computer is a 2016 MacBook Pro (15 inch, Space Grey) with a 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and Radeon Pro 455 2 GB Intel graphics card. I use this computer the most during the day-to-day activities.
I dock my 2016 MacBook Pro with the LandingZone Docking Station. It's a great dock that is sleek and dependable. Connected to the dock are two white Viotek curved monitors that I bought when getting my office together. It's not a bad monitor for coding or graphic design and is fairly inexpensive. However, if you are looking for a monitor that you can also game on, I wouldn't recommend this.
I use the Apple made Keyboard (no number pad) and a Magic Mouse 2. I like the gestures and features of the Magic Mouse 2. Again, if you are looking for something that is also good for gaming, I would steer clear of Apple's mouse and keyboard.
In general, my home office is decorated with various Nintendo-related items. Including a wall of mounted amiibos, an 8-bit Luigi poster, various Legend of Zelda posters, patent blueprints of various Nintendo controllers and more. Next to me, I have a mounted glass whiteboard, my AAS and BFA degrees, an FC Cincinnati jersey towel, and two conference passes for Ohio DevFest and An Event Apart: Seattle.
I have been using the following consistently over the past two years:
