… or recommended. But it can be done! And that is what’s important, no?
This is the Hades Canyon NUC, a minimini gaming PC by Intel … in cooperation with AMD. 😮 Yes, I told you it’s not clever but it actually is. And it makes total sense. As a decently powerful gaming PC that is. Totally not for our envisioned usage scenario as a dirtcheap Linux testing system. I mean the Hades Canyon cost well over 1000 Woolong, which is a bit steep for our humble needs.
But otoh the Hades, like its predeccesor, the Skull Canyon, is such a nifty little machine one just wants to own it because it’s possible! And wouldn’t that be the bonafide highlight in your computing life, kicking Windows shit off this precious machine, installing Linux on it and use the shit to do mom n dad-like facebooky, emaily, videowatchy stuff on it?
In my original hometown, Hamburg/Germany, there was this guy, driving a brand new Ferrari … haphazardly spraypainted in fugly NATO olive! You could often see that car parked in front of pubs and chic fashion boutiques in the trendy parts of town. Being ten times uglier but also ten times more expensive and exciting than all the boring luxury limos. 😮 That shows a similar mindset, don’t you think? Not clever, not recommended but the ultimate in nonchalant cool. 🙂
So, peeps, if you got a cool 1000 smackeroos laying around, why not invest them in this machine and be the coolest kid on the block for a couple weeks?
