Hahahaha really?

The other will be useless. The second option will complement the one I already have.

Sure if we are neighbors lol.

The first option is good for mobility and pretty neat but the second is great at speed and can be further customized. I got confused and decided to post it here to get good review. Getting both is not practical.

Personally I’ve never liked touch screen desktops or laptops they just seem unnecessary, so I’d say the second one, if that’s a custom build, it’ll be nicer in the future when you just change little things here in there

You right. The first is more like a gadget. For design work and games the second is much beter I think. Good luck with your decision :)

If I were you I’d choose the custom built without any doubt. Personally I don’t have much love with such “hybrid” product especially for work :). However if you are the type of guy that love to discover and experience latest technology, a gadget-head and the one who don’t care much about the money then it’s nice to have one anyway :D. For me I need stability and performance more than that so my choice is the custom built.

Thank you @BenSheppard, Designercow, gbs.

Yes, I will be buying the custom built. I have bigger advantage with that one. However, if there are things I should upgrade in the custom built spec(s), please do tell me.

Thank you once again.

Your spec seems to be good, will last a while, I image you will want to change the monitor soon

The Samsung monitor looks pretty good. I will just get 26” instead of the 23” (Although, it depends if they still have stock for that).
