    I want a Ryzen Mobile -based laptop, for $600 or less, with two SO-DIMM slots, an M.2 PCI-E socket, and a 1080P IPS screen. Will install 256GB SSD, and 2x8GB DDR4.

    Makes sense to me.

    Wait until Black Friday and look for one of these. In the meantime, start getting all the stuff you have on eBay.

    I mean, sure, in theory... but who's going to bother writing malware that does this, with such a small percentage of users that dual boot Windows and Linux? First you've got to write it, then have someone actually contract the malware, and then finally have your payoff.

    if you're that concerned about bank security you should probably just go ahead and do all your banking in person.

    If he's that concerned about banking security, he shouldn't use banks.

    The problem is Windows does not come with a file system natively to read-write Linux partition.
