Fully optimising workstation

  Here's where I stand: I'm a modern-day guy dealing with a modern-day issue. I'm all about gaming, especially strategy and building games. But here's the kicker – I need serious computing power to make it happen. However, I'm not a fan of the incessant fan noise that usually accompanies it. My dream workspace? One that's as quiet as a whisper. Oh, and here's another twist – I like to work on one screen and keep a second screen for referencing documents and research. So, I'm a power user seeking the might of something like an Apple silicon chip like the ARM M series such as M1, M2 and coming soon M3. But wait, there's more.

Creativity is the ability to come up with new and original ideas. It is often associated with art, music, and literature, but it can be applied to any field. Creativity is essential for innovation and progress. It allows us to see the world in new ways and to find solutions to problems that have never been solved before. We often hear that organizations require current and future employees to have creativity, problem-solving skills, and critical thinking. However, during interviews, do organizations actually extract this information from candidates? There are many different ways to be creative. Some people are more creative than others, but everyone has the potential to be creative. I do not know how to measure creativity, but we can recognize it when someone thinks outside the box and goes against the n
