MacBook Air or HP Victus RTX 3060? A Coding Tutor’s Dilemma

Podcasting. Writing. Twitch Streaming and YouTube Video Production. My life is evolving into that of a content producer. I eventually chose to purchase, HP Victus RTX 3060. Amazon India says, it will arrive this week.

This week, my beloved RTX 3060 from Zotac, died. Again. I am upset about that. However, I expected this. Replacement computers rarely have the same reliability as the original equipment. I have long resigned to the fact that the Zotac 3060 will be in and our of repairs as long as I keep using it.

I have already contacted Zotac Support, and they have promptly agreed to collect my machine. Perhaps, they will try and repair. Or, they will simply replace it with a new machine or a refurbished machine, like last time. I understand. computers are machines.

Machines, break down man.

However, I recently took upon the mammoth task of streaming classes. It’s important to me, personally, to do these online free coding classes. I have to do it.

So, I need another computer to take over streaming duties whilst the Zotac RTX 3060 is going through repairs.

I have two choices in front of me.

  1. Macbook Air, M1 or M2.
  2. HP Victus RTX 3060, intel edition. (not a big fan of AMD, sorry).

Both are very good computers. Apple, obviously, is amazing. I get portability, a new Mac is currently a want for me. My old Macbook is ageing and has become extremely slow for daily use. It’s currently in storage and used in case of emergencies.

Unfortunately, I cannot do .NET at full speed on Mac. Also, apple charges a bomb for extra storage and RAM. Also, the lack of ports. I mean, for streaming, I need at least half a dozen USB ports, and even more display ports.

With that in mind, I decided to choose HP Victus.

this would be my second HP.

Now, I await it’s arrival.

I work as a full time freelance coding tutor. Hire me at UpWork or Fiverr or Stack Overflow. My personal website is here. Find more of my art at Behance and Unsplash. Also, I have a Podcast about everyday life. And, a 2nd Podcast, where I talk about freelancing.
