Riley's SICK Minimalist Setup - Intel $5,000 Extreme Tech Upgrade

Thanks to Intel for sponsoring this series!
Riley recently renovated his minimalist apartment, but didn't quite get to upgrade his tech setup before the arrival of his BEAUTIFUL baby boy. Now, he's got $5,000 from Intel to spend on a tech upgrade - so how does a minimalist spend it?

    I always get suspicious when they do the home visits for LTT staff... Like... Do I really own a better computer than most of the LTT team - or are they picking computers up off craigslist to be more relatable? I get that Linus can't give/sell items as soon as they arrive to the warehouse, but like... Riley's computer looks roughly 6 years behind the times. If Linus were to wholesale 5 year old stuff from the warehouse, Riley could have at least gotten a small upgrade :P

    I work for a painting company; a few times a year someone contracts us to do their house in pristine minimalist white. Invariably within six months they call us back to paint the walls in color because bright white spaces like that, while visually appealing, are hell to actually live in.
