  • I've been working crazy hours lately but it's not without its benefits. I hadn't even gotten through explaining why I was asking for them to buy me two laptops in the space of a month when my boss approved the request, passed it to accounts, looked up the tech specs and asked if I thought he should get one himself to replace his MacBook.

    And accounts ordered it an hour later.

    It's the Dell Inspiron 16, a pretty solid desktop replacement laptop. 3072x1920 screen - exactly the same as the 16" MacBook Pro, 8-core CPU, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, and an RTX 3060. It matches or beats my desktop system on everything except screen resolution, but I can just plug it into the desktop monitor to fix that.
