I advised my cousin to buy an affordable gaming laptop instead of bot jousting for a GPU that costs the same if one is lucky.. when it dawned on me, I think desktops have taken their last breath. With the dawn of M1, the GPU shortage and iGPUs packing serious flops, what advantage is there now in a desktop? For end-users, none. Compilation and rendering no longer cost a lot, and mobile CPUs are comparable to desktop. So not much for gamedevs either.
I think I've already built my last desktop 💔
@sirdimples Some platform is always dying in someones personal optics ;)
Personally I arrived at the opposite end of the spectrum: After ages of working from laptops I'm pretty sure the 2013 model I retired a couple of years ago will be my last for a long time.
