Like the OP I enjoy building computers. For years I was always building / rebuilding desktops. It is a great way to better understand how computers work.
Now my job requires so much travel that I am not home much, so desktops never get used. Laptop goes everywhere with me.

Perhaps this will warm your soul a little bit...

I have never had a laptop... but I have always assembled my desktops. My last build was an AMD FX-8350 (8 cores at 4 gigahertz) with 16 gigabytes memory. With the dual monitor setup and 4 HDDs, Mint KDE only made sense. Windows will never touch this hardware outside of a VM.
