I'll never use a machine that tells me what to do. Use it only for keeping track of performance, never as an instructor.

I use an fitness tracker and an app, but I use it primarily for monitoring, logging calories in and out, and tracking results. The only "instructional" part of it I use - if you can call it that - is the "get off your lard ass, tubbo" reminder.

Yeah imagine that, people have different requirements. You did note the "IMO" at the end of sentence, yes?

Aside from "significantly heavier", "significantly more expensive" doesn't get past purchasing or accounting at work. Perhaps I should lecture them on the value of "choosing freedom over the mainstream".

I have a Dell Precision M4700 that I only reboot as a result of security patches being applied. It's predecessor was a different model in the Precision line that was trouble free for many years, until the video card finally took a dump.

Dell has made some shitty business models, however. You get what you pay for.
