i've been slowly moving from an old and largely broken MacBook Pro to my new computer
i don't think i've ever upgraded by such a big tech margin before (except arguably Atari 65XE -> Amiga 500), so it's a really big improvement for me
but as i'm moving my data and workflow from MBP to the meow (the new computer) there is less and less that MBP is doing
shortly it won't be doing anything and it will be ready to be turned off and discarded, and i'm feeling bad about that

but yeah, i'm really happy about having something that is reasonably modern and has specs that are more tailored to my needs
i still have to figure out how to get tensorflow/torch/keras to work on my GTX 660 (the support was dropped because of old CUDA version)
but i can play recent games, i don't have to micromanage resource usage to prevent constant swapping and slowdown etc

i have also upgraded my chess bot on lichess (LazyBot) since i can afford the resources now
if you want to see what the smartest (within a very small error margin) publicly available chess neural net plays like without calculating anything (purely by pattern recognition), check it out! https://lichess.org/@/LazyBot/
(yes, it's way better than me at least in blitz)
