Everything still pristine.
No registry/repository bloat.
Heckin' faster than the last one.
Still has that new car smell.

I love it.

My machine just came today. I don't like setting them up, mostly because installing Visual Studio is like waiting in the line at the DMV. The machine is not the fastest thing out there, but it's the fastest thing I've had by a considerable margin

AMD Ryzen 7 4750G
32GB RAM
512GB NVMe
3TB HDD (to be replaced with SSD eventually)
+2TB HDD (I just added last night. it's from my linux machine. i'm pulling files off my ext4 fs)
Currently onboard video (I'm not a gamer but i might buy a used vid card)

Windows 10 is my host OS. I almost went with Win7 or a hypervisor. In the end, I didn't want to deal with it. I have a separate machine if i want linux.
