Looked at the possibility of building a PC for the first time in 10 years. Old one lasted 7 years (passed onto my younger brother) and my small underpowered laptop is several years old and cannot do some personal research workloads I'd like.

But 2 days looking into stock levels and pricing of computer parts makes me realize the silicon industry and market is currently near nonexistent, with supply side issues. So I'll try again in 6 months.

In the meantime, more books.
