My work laptop refresh is due. Normally I choose ultralights, like the thinkpad x1c, and work on the train, around and about, etc

But during lockdown my ultralight is a low performance desktop, never leaving my study.

So I’m considering getting a performance model instead. Lockdown isn’t going to end for me for a long time

Something like the P series. Or I could try and spec an actual desktop, but that is a lot more admin

For the same approx price, are there significant performance gains to go to a desktop? Not sure whether threadripper is in scope or not

I haven’t bought or specced a desktop PC in over a decade

Workload is mostly building containers over and over, but I’m hoping to move to JVM engineering too
