After 7 years with my beloved iMac, it is starting to show it's age. In the past few months, I noticed the machine slowing down and a significant drop in productivity. After a lot of research, I went for the 14" Macbook Pro M1 with 10 core CPU, 16 core GPU, 32gb RAM, and 1 TB of SSD. It was a bummer that the model iMac I had wouldn't let me use it as a secondary monitor, so I went out looking for a secondary monitor. I went with the BenQ PD3220U 32 Inch 4K IPS AQCOLOR Computer Monitor.
So far, it has been a true workhorse, My only complaint is the lack of USB ports and so I am going to have to rely on wireless devices. While I have yet to actually take it out on the road, it is a laptop and I could use it at a cafe when COVID is over.
