    In fact it does. Athlon 200GE beats a Q9650.

    Yeah, I took a long break myself.

    I was running a 10 year old laptop as my desktop replacement.

    SSD, memory upgrades (Lenovo W530...so had slots) and high speed internet were all much more important over the last 10 years than CPU speed.

    However, for running CAD programs and pushing multiple monitors (big multi-monitors are really a god send for office productivity) I finally built a desktop again after all these years.

    Yeah, laptops still seem to be the go to for 90% of work from home people, but having the ability to run multiple high resolution monitors from a dedicated graphics card is really a win.

    The upgraded CPU power is just the icing on the cake when you go back to a desktop in my opinion.

    I find spending hours on a laptop to be a frustrating ... debilitating ergonomic experience. Apparently, the pandemic and the work from home shift have caused a massive, sudden upsurge of interest in traditional PC desktop computing among non-gamers, which is a segment that has supposedly been in slow decline for many years. People seem to be attempting to do a lot of upgrading of older, seldom used systems or replacing them outright. I've noticed since early summer retailers are often sold out or have low stock of the most sought after components.

    I only use a laptop if I absolutely have to... and even then it's with a mouse.

    I don't see how people are productive with phones either. I could not do my emails on just a phone. No way.

    Some people will say the same about a keyboard and go with a pen.

    God.. I haven't used one of those in a decade.

    It seems to me that those who deal with graphics are particularly interested in modernization. Probably, this sphere is one of the most expensive resources.

    It seems to me that everything depends on your field of activity. For example, I feel very comfortable working with a laptop, I do not need a big screen.
