Do all universities offer $30 5-year old i5 computers?
Even a desktop like this with a card like a 750ti would smoke my current old macbook pro when it comes to rendering video. And at least would serve as an amazing backup or separate computer if I had to render 2 projects at once.
There’s also a huge lesson in this video: be clever about how you acquire the resources you need. He knew that SSD’s that fail can be brought back to life so he got one for $5. HUGE TIP! I need to keep this on my brain and think about places in my life where I can use opportunities like this.
