Hi guys, I am a Mac user and unable to use the required software for my projects. I have a PC in mind and also wouldn’t mind building one. I will be using this PC for PCB designing, MCU programming, CAD, multiple windows and heavy multitasking capabilities, Machine learning (Artificial Intelligence), Computer vision (deep learning), simulation software and Flight simulator X.

This is the PC i am considering to buy-

If you are unable to see this, the specs of this hp PC are
  • Intel® Core™ i7-8700 Processor with Intel® UHD Graphics 630 (3.2 GHz base frequency, up to 4.6 GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, 12 MB cache, 6 cores)
  • Windows 10 Pro 64
  • 16 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 X 16 GB)
  • 2 TB 5400 rpm SATA SSHD
  • AMD Radeon™ RX 550 Graphics (4 GB GDDR5 dedicated)
Let me know if this is PC is good for my use

Thank you

I've never found those hybrid drives to be anywhere near as fast as a full blown SSD.
And why go for 5400rpm when you can get 7200 for almost he same price.
Consider a 500GB SSD and a 2TB HDD, or whatever capacities you want - but an SSD for the OS and software and a HDD for data files.
