Today’s show is about the best computer options available for drone pilots.

Our caller for today, Cody is, of course, a drone pilot who is scouting for the best and most affordable computer system.

So, what are some of the main things that Cody should consider when buying a computer for his drone business? How can he get the maximum bang for the buck?

To answer Cody’s question, we first discuss the all-new Macbook Pro, and whether or not it is a good buy for professionals.

You will also learn how the ongoing chip shortage coupled with the surge in cryptocurrency mining has led to skyrocketing prices.
