Am i happy with the hardware that i own ?
Definitely NO, i need urgently to upgrade my MacBook and the External Monitor is old and low quality. I haven’t choose the hardware i own in order to support my consulting activity, it’s just the hardware i had. And, until now, has been enough, with some memory performance issues from time to time.
What about fun ?
For fun i just play my Xbox 360, in this area i have no complaints.
