re: Thanks! I haven't tried Kaggle before, how do you (not) like it in comparison to Colab? Also regarding expansive GPUs, I recently learned about Jet...

One issue to watch out for with Xavier as a workstation is your software's compatibility with ARM. This isn't always a big issue, but sometimes popular packages can be harder to find pre built binaries for when you switch to ARM. I'm thinking VsCode, Godot, in my own recent experience. It might not be an issue for you, just depends on how much of your development tooling you need to run, versus the pure ML portion of your build (NVIDIA seems to have done a good job including pre built libs needed for various ML apps)

Huh, thanks for the headup. I don't think Xavier NX is out yet, but will ping when it comes out & give it a try ;)
