    The laptop arrived this morning.

    It looks seriously brand new, not a scratch or smudge even, anywhere.

    It feels like a very, very nice machine. Makes our HP Pavilion laptop look like a toy. It even seems higher quality than my daughters MacBook Air.

    It's blazing fast, and the display is beautiful.

    That's all I got so far.

    A laptop will do everything a desktop will do now days AFAIK. It's much simpler. You dont have cords everywhere etc.

    Except high end gaming ... still need a crazy expensive desktop for that.

    Most of the cost is in the GPU too. $1,000+ for a gaming GPU.

    Don't even get started on crypto currency mining. Need even crazier GPUs ... yes multiple GPUs ... for that.
