That's my work computer, an almost fully loaded 15" MBP (i9, 32gb, 1tb). Unfortunately as a Windows PC it's a turd. My favorite feature is that about once every week and a half when I wake it up in the morning the keyboards (built in and USB) don't work. At best most of the time I can login using the onscreen keyboard to do a safe shut down; today it demonstrated even bigger turdyness and left the touchpad/mouse inoperative as well forcing me to restart via a hard power cycle.

If we ever get more mobile app work, I'd be able to boot into mac mode and work on the iOS app (and despite not being a fan of macos i'd rather do that than web); but unless/until that happens (not holding my breath) it's a crappy windows machine whose price was marked up above competition by more than the cost of the TB3 dock and dual 4k monitors I don't have. D'Oh! | :doh:

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
