lolicon27864ymy laptop is something i got back in december of 2009, used, for approximately $400, everything i know today i learned with this laptop, from music production, to code that needs refactoring, to graphic design, to editing, , and oh... to english, i mean i watched a lot of shit in english as a kid but i didn't really speak any until i got my laptop, the internet was wild to me at that time (as an edgy teenager), and i'm really grateful for getting this thing, because without it i would've probably been a dumber person than i am today (or maybe just not as self-conscious of how dumb i am).
Jifuna36964yMy dream rig (extreme):
Cpu: Ryzen threadripper
Gpu: nvidia tesla v100
Ram: 64 gig
Motherboard: Lots of IO
Storage: 2 1tb samsung ssd and 4 raid 10 hdd.
My dream rig (reality :p):
Cpu: ryzen 7 1700
Gpu: nvidia gtx 1080
Ram: 32 gig
Motherboard: enough IO
Storage 1tb samsung ssd and 2 tb hdd
Luckily I have an omen laptop 2017 so I actually dont really need a desktop.
Jilano302994yCheck some M.2 SSD! You'll drool in front of the read/write speeds!
My next config is very close to what you wrote, but prices being what they are, everything is momentarily on hold.
(Seeing 32GB of RAM at 500€ is way too much for me)
2GB RAM is enough for daily uses.
Drop some intel i3 there with 128GB HDD. PUURRFECTTY
bahua133484yI recently built a machine with nvme for its storage. Aside from the fact that the performance absolutely blows SSD out of the water, it's great not to have any cables to deal with to connect it. I bought a 500GB WD nvme disk about two months ago for just under $200 US.
I cannot recommend it enough.
TobyAsE29354yThe ideal dev environment is the one that works and doesn't spontaneously combust.
At least that's the way I like my machines.
Ideal rig: a basement full of poweredges and a chromebook to access them. 😁
