so I let myself get to a point where all I had for a personal computer was a Mac mini and my work laptops. I use the Mac mini as a music source and was using an old work laptop for REW and Dirac. Well the Black Friday deals were too good to pass up so I got a new HP Pavillion 15" from Costco for writing, measurement, Dirac, etc. Going to discontinue the Mac Mini for now as it's getting old. 15" 1080p touch screen Nvidea 940mx 4gb ram 16gb ram I7 8th gen processor Windows 10 pro I think it will be perfect for what I'm planning to use it for. I needed to stay away from most of the slim new laptops because I needed a lot of ports. I also was afraid to buy a jewel like 2 in 1 (as much as I was tempted) as I worried I would break it taking it in on jobs and such.
