- 2x8GB DDR3-1600 Kingston RAM
- 1TB Crucial MX300 SSD
- 1.44MB 3.5″ Floppy Drive (This is really a native drive)
- 520W Seasonic PSU
- IBM Model M
- Logitech G102 mouse
In case you are curious, I don’t overclock my machine in order to maximise its lifespan. In fact, I run without Turbo Boost by default.
I don’t go for the latest and greatest because of affordability limits and that machines depreciate quickly. I prefer to spend abit more on user-oriented fundamentals shown at the top that will stay with me for a long time.
