So time to build another PC. This one will be a surprise for my gf. We are/were both in the old laptop situation. Mine is 7 years old. Still gets the job done but I’ve wanted to build a gaming pc for years and finally did. She’s a grad student so has a school laptop that’s 6-7 years old and a personal one in the same age range. It gets the job done except when she needs to run models it takes forever. Last time she had to borrow a computer to get the model run in time (about a week out).
So I’m building her a SFFPC. It’ll be small enough she can put it in her backpack and take it to school. I’ve never built a tiny computer so this will be a fun challenge.
