Longer form post why I'm considering new hardware. Hopefully you can help...?


@kev after reading this you might be better off with a laptop + dock. Seems like purchasing two machines specifically for the tasks you need it for is overkill. But that also ignores the fun of messing with hardware and building a new computer (at least that’s a part I really enjoy).

I noticed you have an iPad on your desk too. Have you considered using that for the lightweight tasks you use a laptop for?


@jrtashjian that’s my work iPad. I do have a personal iPad too, but I use that mainly for watching YouTube and reading in bed. I couldn’t use an iPad as a main device - they’re too limited.
