I wouldn't mind a forced air mask similar to the "LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier"
Back in the day I remember Intel had a face shield and waist mounted HEPA unit to capture and filter the breath of clean room workers.

"Healthiest"

For corps and shareholders... yes, for everyone else? LOL

Those are things that happen when demand exceeds supply. I don’t think they would call a hardware glut healthiest. Maybe “best for consumers”, but they wouldn’t use “healthiest” for the opposite.

I imagine people spending more time at home / working from home has led to a lot of upgrades and that is a big part of it, but I choose to place blame for any downsides solely on the coin miners. Because I can.

There is zero of any of that if you just want a desktop PC to do, you know, remote-work or home-schooling with.

I never bought into the optane ecosystem, seems Intel didn’t either.

The laptop I bought in August has one of these hybrid Optane/ssd drives. It works quite well, although I’d hate to have to reinstall the OS on it. Setting up Optane is a HUGE pain in the ass.

With SSD prices now, it’s a dead idea. It made sense back when SSDs were small and pricey.

We have one drive left in the store. I might build it into one of our floor models just so it goes out the door.
