Yeah I thought about that method but it seems to just make it more complex
@TheCrispyDud I try to put the answers I get from reddit when I need the answer, on the fediverse so hopefully others can find without having to go to reddit, this seems to sometimes help.
@BananaTrifleViolin Hey I get what you are trying to get at, My current PC set up is very basic and really outdated (And is only get even more outdated in the next few years), The problem I have is that due the previous owner of my PC the screws have been rounded off along with the case being to small for a new GPU making upgrading of the PC almost impossible if I can even find parts of a good affordable price.
As mentioned in my post, the reason I'm looking for a portable work horse is due to the need to move around, I hope to spend time in the evenings with my partner and then we go to bed, I then spend time replying to emails, messages on Kbin as well as editing videos (If I have any, sitting in bed next to my partner helps well doing the 'lighter' work but some is a bit taxing). The option to also pack up and go away for the weekend without struggling to work is a helpful thing for me as it means I shouldn't lose momentum as that slows me down so much even making projects take x100 more time.
Even know I don't want to use the laptop for gaming, it is an option from my experience you need both a really, really good connection to stream gaming and the games I enjoy playing are online competitive such as CS2 what that latency can really effect the results of your game.
But yes if I was to purchase a gaming portable device to mess around with I would be looking at something like a Steam Deck, I'm more thinking of the possible benefits it could give my Video Editing and possible money I could make from editing others content as my company i'm building is preparing to launch. (Also a Steam Deck can't be paid off by monthly payments)
I know saving is an option but even in a year that's only £504 sure enough for something like a Steam Deck outright but through that time I'm stuck with my PC that seems to be getting to the end of it's life (Had a few blue screens the past year, so maybe a year or so left on it) as well as possibly losing out on the opportunity to edit on the go like if I'm visiting family or friends for the weekend or need to go up to London (As I've had to do that a few times the past year due to Activist stuff - Travel Paid by someone else, so easier).
Thanks you for the great feedback.
