I've decided that instead of trying to keep up with the hardware requirements of FL (CPU, monitor real estate, RAM, disk), I'll be swapping resources to have a better platform under Accordance. Later on I might be able to get a new laptop financed. My desktop computer is not particularly fast but good value for money. So for now both my laptop and desktop computers have the Ivy Bridge Intel architecture (the latter G2030, good value for money which is rare for Intel), even though I do really prefer AMD. I will however never buy another Intel CPU equipped computer. The fast AMD FX CPU equipped laptop I used to have, had an annoying software bug. Speaking of bugs, if You buy a laptop with an ordinary HDD, try getting a 500 GB disk instead of 1 TB, to generate less heat and wear.
For several Years I've used regular spinning HDD:s in laptops. Next time I'll go for a hybrid drive, OR if the laptop will have a possibilty to use two storage drives, one 256 GB SSD and one 500 GB HDD would be a good combination and should ensure more automated backup, which would be beneficial, the latter option might be optimal but at the same time I'll be looking for a great AMD CPU. AMD A12 has just come out, I don't know but I suppose it's the replacement for FX.
Can't maintain two platforms, but have to choose sides. I've chosen Accordance a while ago but I've spend less money during the past about 1⅓ Years than usually, because financially it has not looked like I can increase spending. So swapping is the option. That's why You see me dealing with used Bible Study software books sometimes.
When I see something at the Accordance storefront I'll probably be able to know what I want, as I've grown used to choosing.
Big choices in life such as relationships, are the gigantic and therefore hard decisions. Making hundreds of sort of small choices, small in comparison, are easy to me nowadays, I've some routine.
