If you want to work in corporate finance, you should take a corporate finance class.

If you want to work in finance in general, you could start the same. If you want to do something specifically technical/algo/quant, you should focus on math.

I'm guessing you've never managed an IT budget... <- go take a class on finance. This one is from what's arguably the top finance school in the world. It's free.

I showed you a link on ebay with units for under $25.

And the way you do financial calculations is that you determine your weighted average cost of capital, you multiply that out against an outlay and lifespan and then you subtract your salvage value. I am assuming you can sell your DDR3 RAM for about what you paid. It's EOL and that's the general pattern for DRAM.

25 x 1.1 - 25 = $2.50 per year

My SO is fine with my ability to handle finances.

>Lived in a car my arse

When I was 21 I was physically attacked by my step-father and basically told to go be homeless. I did spend a few month's time sleeping in my car, and showering at the gym at the university I attended. I did ultimately end up living with some friends.

For what it's worth I worked to finance my undergraduate and graduate education and am well aware of the realities of stretching a penny. It makes me grateful that I'm now in a rather enviable position.

Thermal throttling isn't burning up. Intel has very specific temperature parameters and it's basically "idiot proofed" from there. It isn't 2002 anymore.

Also, the macbook air can run chrome and spotify at the same time without issue. An 8 year old macbook air can also do that despite far worse perf/watt.

It didn't crash and burn from running cinebench and cinebench is FAR FAR FAR more demanding than chrome and spotify.

Did it thermal throttle - yes. Is thermal throttling good - no.

Thermal throttling isn't the end of the world.

>hmmmm, wait are the Windows 10w cpu laptops burning up?

There's an entire internal thread about getting better thermal performance out of the work laptop I typed this on. Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc. all do the same thing more or less. Why do you think there are TONS of cases where the 8C and 6C variant of a laptop have basically the same performance. Hell, I have a jury-rigged cooling system set up to handle the heat on my current system (I hate fan noise). I give 0 concerns about how hot my company's laptop runs. It'll be EOL in a few months when I get a new laptop refresh. In the mean time though... I don't like fan noise.

>Also high precision machining is a strong word for sping clips.

If you watch the video they needed to cut out a small bit of for the screws. The amount cut out needs to be exact. This costs machine time, can slow down production and adds supply chain risk. If you're sitting on 99% of the required parts for a computer because of a minor supply chain hiccup that's money going down the drain. Apple's cost of capital is ~7%. A 1 month additional delay on a $2000 laptop means $11 of financing loss per unit. This is MUCH more than the relatively low cost of "get a slightly better heatsink" and "use a process that's by hand instead of with a machine"

Here, educate yourself a bit:

Not every problem is "what would some low level monkey in IT do?" sometimes it's "we have 5000 tasks that need to be done with pinpoint precision - how can we cut down risks, save time and reduce costs while punting the ball to someone else (the consumer 5-10 years in the future)?"

You can go on coursera, there are couple of Moocs in finance published by Wharton. Give it a go :

In addition to this, check Khan Academy youtube channel, they have plenty of material :
