    @CircleTech at least be reasonable with your apple bashing. iphones are legendary for not throttling, ipad's too. if they put those cpu's in a chassis that's a lot bigger i really doubt it would throttle.

    @RorzNZ of course it can. it's just a cpu architecture. it has pci-e support afaik, and there is also this: https://nvidianews.nvidia.com/news/nvidia-brings-cuda-to-arm-enabling-new-path-to-exascale-supercomputing

    @VegetableStu history will repeat itself. if you bought a powermac G5 Quadcore, apple's most expensive desktop in 2005, you got support until 2009. 4 years. that's it. because it came out right before the switch to intel. 
     
    they will do the same thing now. if you buy an Intel Mac now, you get a max of 4 to 5 years on that.

    @handymanshandle yeah, i really like it. the picture is great and i have a pro-logic surround amp and this works well with it.
     
    the other VCR i have is a lot older, it's a Panasonic NV-SD240 and it still works well, but i'm gonna take it apart tommorow because i might ahve to relubricate some parts. it really struggles to get into high speed rewind and when the brake engages it makes an absolutely awful noise. 
     
    i'm keeping both of them on the setup as the panasonic does do some things better, namely rewind when i fix the mechanism, it's a lot faster.

    ok, so an update. 
     
    i was like what laptop do i use now, and i spotted my Folio 9470m in the corner of my eye under a pile of stuff... when i grabbed it it was missing a battery, 2 back panels and it was covered in dust. i found the missing parts in my room, dusted it off and to my surprise it still works totally fine. 
     
    now, it's from 2012 and heavily used by the previous owner, and i mean absolutely abused, when i got it it was covered in scratches, that was in 2018, and being my backup computer for 2 years didn't do it any favors, but hey, it will work.  
     
    i need to buy a new battery for it which is fine, the one it has now has a whole heck of cycles on it and lasts about 1.5 hours, which is workable but just not ideal, and the battery for this is like €40, not f*cking €250. 
     
    also it needs a new back panel, since it's held in my plastic clips and one of them is snapped (it was like that when i got it) which is like €20. so all in all not too bad.

    @Windows7ge Windows is still the best compromise for me. Linux is cool, but until i have the funds to purchase a decent modern laptop i have to use laptops from 2010 to 2012. that's not a problem, but the wireless cards in them have poor support on linux, so running Windows is better. 
     
    @AluminiumTech not all countries are on as tough of a lockdown as others. in The Netherlands where i am, all businesses are open except restaurants and cinema's etc. you are allowed to open your business if you can maintain 1.5m distance between yourself and the customer, and many businesses including the one my dad runs allow a limited amount of people inside etc, but you can have a business open here just fine. 
     
    @SenKa i'll DM you 2 listings since i have 2 macbooks to sell. once i put them up i'll share them.
