Nope. Consoles are dying out in favour of PCs and mobiles. It just won't be profitable in a few years.
There will be at most another generation of consoles after this one. That will be the last one before the market crashes, unless it crashes before.

Well, that's rude.
Everyone has their circumstances. I happened to be using a 5 year old laptop until this year when I bought a desktop to replace it, with everything including all peripherals, and I couldn't afford a SSD just yet since I can't live with only 120GB of storage, so I bought a 2TB HDD instead. I'm also a 3rd worlder and teach English for a living, so yes, I'm poor.

Sorry to hear that, anon. Don't bother with CS, it won't get you anywhere here (as unfortunate as that is). If I were you, I'd go for the S in STEM. It's roughly as fulfilling, but as a bonus there's more vocational value in something like chemistry or virology.

It makes a huge difference. My dad and I have similar specs aside from the fact that he ignored my advice to go for an SSD and picked up a 1TB HDD instead for his system drive. On my system I don't even notice that it's a decade old machine; on his it's practically unbearable. And we're both limited by a SATA II bus. I'm assuming you've got a SATA III bus so you'd have even performance

Buy a $300 oz of weed. Break it into eights and sell them for $50. Put the $100 profit in savings. Buy another oz for $300 and repeat.

Well last night I spent $400 on a new astrophotography camera.

Though if I got handed $300 right now to spend on any tech I'd either put it towards a new laptop or a polar alignment camera.
>>
>>65955326
If you're really still using an HDD as your boot drive (not sure which of the replies are yours) then obviously an SSD has to be your first choice. You'll have some left over.

Otherwise... $300 is in that tricky price range where it isn't quite enough to get a premium version of something advanced, but also overpriced for more basic things.

I'd probably save a bit more and get a good monitor (4K HDR gsync is coming out soon). Or maybe a PS4 Pro.
