I used to have a desktop pc but now just use a laptop:  Dell XPS 15, 7590.  This has:

CPU: Intel 9th-gen Core i9-9980HK.

RAM: 32GB DDR4/2666.

Display: 15.6-inch 4K OLED @ 60Hz.

GPU: GeForce GTX 1650.

Storage: 1GB Samsung NVMe M.2 SSD.

Ports: 2 USB Type A, 1 Thunderbolt 3 (4 lane), HDMI 2.0, Analog headphone, SD Card, Noble lock port


I add a Samsung T5 external 2Gb ssd and a Wacom small Intuos Pro digital painting tablet (pth-460) with thick and thin pens.  I calibrate my laptop's 4k display with an xRite i1 Display Pro.  I like a wired mouse and use a Steelseries Rival 310 and a small Steelseries mouse mat.


I use Photoshop and Corel Painter in equal measure.
