@firstname.lastname@example.org @FiXato it was because I was looking for one that had USB-C video support because I have an external touchscreen using that. And only the ones with dedicated nvidia graphics do, and I did that thing where I forgot it’s possible to re-evaluate criteria like how it would just take a single extra cable i already have to just use the display over HDMI instead 🙃🙃
@email@example.com @FiXato but anyway I think you should go for it for getting a microcomputer of some kind. Whether it’s a raspi or something bigger, it’s super cheap compared to like a new phone these days. And it gives you more flexibility to experiment and upgrade and get a really great setup. If you don’t need macOS for anything in particular, I’d go straight for it. Take advantage of MacBook resale value! And now is the best time to buy ryzen while it’s blowing intel out of the water!
