I am keen to start the fastAI Deep Learning Course
But, I am not so well versed with the computer hardware…pls help me with the following question:
I have an iMac with the following specs:
- iMac: (27-inch, Late 2013)
- Memory: 32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
- Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4 GB
As Jeremy mentioned in Lesson-1(2020) that Mac is not the best option to run Jupyter Notebooks locally on Mac hardware as it makes use of NVIDIA GPU.
Based on my iMac specs which has NVIDIA GPU- can i use this machine in this fastAI course(2020) rather than going to some cloud option (Colab, etc)
Please help me to understand better.
Many thanks for your kind help.
