YouTube king PewDiePie is finally doling out praise for Pokimane’s latest PC setup after initially grilling her “uncomfortable” cable management.
Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is YouTube’s most-subscribed content creator — and as such, his PC setup is quite important to his career choice.
Recently, Pewds flexed his latest setup after finally moving from the UK to Japan, where he boasts a far more minimalist office than his previous workspace.
To celebrate the big reveal, PewDiePie decided to review the setups of other major content creators, including that of Twitch streaming star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys.
Kjellberg had initially reviewed Pokimane’s setup back in 2021, and he couldn’t help himself from recoiling from her cable management… which was less ‘management’ and more a ton of cables gathered underneath her desk.
Luckily, Pokimane has since upgraded her setup in a huge way since moving to her new house, and all her cables are neatly tucked right under her desktop where they’re out of the way.
PewDiePie seemed impressed by this change and had nothing but praise for her shiny new streaming station.
“There’s been an update,” he began. “I was being harsh because her cable management was the worst thing I’ve ever seen. But I’m happy to see that someone has helped her take care of it.”
“That’s so much better,” he continued. “She gets it. You have this amazing, super-expensive setup, but no cables? This is amazing! …that’s so much better. That looks great.”
However, one thing PewDiePie didn’t agree with was the soundproofing foam on Pokimane’s walls, arguing that all one needs is a decent mic to produce good sound and saying they’re a “pain to remove.”
Luckily, it looks like Pokimane’s new setup has earned PewDiePie’s seal of approval. We’re anxious to see her response to his comments, although she was able to laugh off his previous criticisms about her computer cables.
