For the professional user - a mobile solution!
The 8565U (four cores) provides eight processing threads (eight virtual cores) at 4.6GHz.
16GB to 32GB (dual-channel) is sufficient for most users.
SSD as OS drive is certainly nice... but not an absolute necessity (conventional HD is fine).
With a SSD, the machine boots quicker, apps open quicker, and navigating the OS is a little more "snappy".
Disk-streaming sample libraries is where SSD really shines.
M.2 SSDs sustain over 500MB/Sec (three times the speed of a conventional HD).
M.2 PCIe x4 SSDs sustain 3500MB/Sec (six times the speed of a standard SSD).
On the PC, we now have complete "PCIe via Thunderbolt" support.
You must be running an up-to-date install of Win10 and have a motherboard that provides Thunderbolt-3 via USB-C port.
RME, MOTU, Presonus, and UA have full "PCIe via Thunderbolt" drivers actually available. Others are currently testing.
To use a Thunderbolt audio interface, you'll also need a Thunderbolt-3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt adapter.
At this point, nearly all major audio software/hardware is working well with Windows 10 x64.
For most users, we now recommend Windows 10.
