Mobile setups are quite nice. You just need to remember that even with
a mobile setup, youŽll still need peripherals such as an audio interface.

Here in Germany we get our gear over specialized sites such as:
https://www.mysn.de/ or http://www.da-x.de/.

YouŽll want to check, if you have similar sites in your country.

Same here! Two identical systems and each one uses carbon copy cloner on two SSD's. Yes, I have been burned by failure and backup failure! If it's not backed up three times, it ain't backed up! 😜
