Thanks to all of you that have donated to Mods for HESK development. At the time of this blog post, 1,221.84 USD has been donated in total, which is simply amazing. I never would have thought that this project would have resulted in over $1,000 of donations.  So, I thought I’d put some of this money to good use.

Primarily for development I have been using a MacBook Pro (Mid-2009) as my primary development machine.  Overall it has been a good machine for its time; however it has recently been having some issues and needed to be replaced. Therefore, I now have a new development machine: a Lenovo IdeaPad Y700.  Primarily for gaming, this laptop is quite powerful:

  • Intel Core i7-6700HQ Processor (8 cores @ ~2.6GHz)
  • 12GB DDR4 RAM
  • 1TB HDD+128GB SSD
  • NVIDIA GeForce 960M Graphics (with 5GB dedicated video RAM)

I hope that this machine will last me for many years of Mods for HESK development (and for any other endeavors that I will go through in the future), and thanks again to all of you that donated! 😃
