After years of using an Apple Macbook Pro, it was time for something new. As Apple did not offer a computer to my needs, I decided to build one myself again in 2016.

For backups and data storage, a Synology DS1815+ with 8x 4TB Seagate hard drives totaling 25TB usable storage, is setup in the network as well.
Now, in 2022 this machine is still more than capable for anything thrown at it.
