My work laptop refresh is due. Normally I choose ultralights, like the thinkpad x1c, and work on the train, around and about, etc

But during lockdown my ultralight is a low performance desktop, never leaving my study.

So I’m considering getting a performance model instead. Lockdown isn’t going to end for me for a long time

Something like the P series. Or I could try and spec an actual desktop, but that is a lot more admin

For the same approx price, are there significant performance gains to go to a desktop? Not sure whether threadripper is in scope or not

@jmtd For a quick idea about cost for a custom build, I go to pcpartpicker.com/ and choose the main components. I've it to build one PC a few years ago (still my home server).
