I'd be happy with 1000/100 for the price. But I'm in the same boat, can't justify the extra costs as upload is my biggest pain point.
Abaddon replied to Duckman on AMD Ryzen 9 3900x CPU $692.10 Delivered @ Computer Alliance eBay (via Afterpay)
Depends which board you have. The socket will be the same (AM4), but it will depend on your chipset. Initially AMD said they wouldn't...

WSL works pretty well for any of the dev tools I've thrown at it. Certainly easier than a dual boot and less taxing than a VM. Good to have...
You'll also have the advantage of a GPU for building AI models. Mine is a couple of years old now, so it only has a GTX 1050, but it's much...
Are you sold on the 13 inch form factor. I used an XPS 13 2 in 1 for a month before changing to an XPS 15. Screen is just too small for me...
This is my strategy as well. XPS 15, Windows 10 as the main OS, WSL for any linux based work or dev tools.

Fragrance being Citrus Vomit in this case
You also mentioned 4K video. Going AMD at this point brings the possiblity of PCI Gen 4. And fastest possible NVME storage speeds.
We have 25 devs, 90% use Dell XPS's of one description or another, 10% holding out on Surface Book/Pro. Have a couple of Macbooks in a...
Up to you, I have shucked and unshucked. Unschuked is sometimes a good option, as it's cheaper, you maintain the warranty, and it's often...

It's Wheels magazine. Every page is an ad page. And every article is an attempt to felatte an auto-maker and get more ad revenue.

Bought for PC. Add it to the pile of games I've bought and not yet played.
