I am buying another computer because this new model has a new 4-nanometer chip that is five times faster than my 2017 iMac. For some tasks like compiling code, my iMac seems slow. The new computer uses an AMD APU that has the graphics built into the CPU. This makes it just good enough for playing games without having to buy a graphics card costing hundreds of dollars.
I already bought a 27-inch 1440P monitor to use with this computer, which I got off of Facebook Marketplace for $50. I had to drive all the way to Noblesville to get the monitor.
I have been wanting a powerful AMD APU ever since new video game systems came out in 2019 featuring powerful custom AMD APUs. It took them this long to come out with a powerful AMD APU for home computers.
