I just recently replaced both my 10-year-old laptop and my nearly 10-year-old desktop. For the laptop I bought an LG Gram16 with 500GB NVME and 16GB RAM. CPU is a 12th-Gen Intel Core-i7. I'm a developer, not a gamer, so the memory is enough to let me do what I need and I beefed up the disc space by adding a 2TB 980Pro into the second NVME slot. The 16-inch screen is great and the whole thing weighs way less than my old ASUS. It comes in at less than a kilo. Surprisingly enough, I got it at Costco for $500 bucks off list. Cost me $CDN1500 for the laptop and about $200 for the added 2TB.

My new desktop is based on a 13th-Gen Intel Core-i9, Asus motherboard, 32GB RAM, Nvidia 3060 GPU to drive my 4 monitors, and 3 2TB sticks of NVME, mixed between WD850NX and Samsung 980PRO. I moved over my two mirrored arrays of 4TB rotating discs to use for big storage and backup.

The speed is awesome -- Visual Studio starts up in an eye-blink and builds go so fast that they're done in no time. I no longer have time to go make a cup of tea while I'm waiting. I figure this may be the last machine I build, so I decided it was worth it to spend the money. All told, it cost me about $CDN3500.
