Total cost (including delivery) was 850 ukp, so not cheap. I had been holding
on to savings for some time specfically for this purchase though, as the
previous machine was 8 years old and showing signs of stress. It was also quite
noisy. The new one is silent, so on a quiet evening I can now very faintly hear
a whine from the backlight of one of my hardware synths :o

The socket will take a Ryzen 7 and the PSU and heatsink are more than capable.
I doubt whether I'll bother though the performance is better than my needs for
the foreseeable future :)

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
