@matigo Bingo. Plus, I've found that I don't really take advantage of my current notebook's portability for productive purposes. Going back to a desktop might even make a media tablet (now think iPad—mini) reasonable again.
@matigo I figure that will hold me while I get the software side of the picture sorted out, and then sometime next year I can start building. 30-inch 4k+ monitor. SSD + RAID + NAS. Portable display tablet (think Wacom, not iPad).
@matigo I might be in the market for a PC myself, though I have no interest in a notebook. I want to build a "monster" production rig, and primarily run Linux on it. Currently I've set up (and then misconfigured) Ubuntu on an unused 2008 iMac.
