My "Poor Man's" Machine
TLDR: you guys can consider all of my contents as "poor man's streaming". the details are below

I don't know if anyone ever curious on how I stream and play, but here's the machine I use:
- it's a laptop. yes, it IS a laptop, and not a gaming one
- HP 14-AM102TX
- Intel® Core™ i5-7200U
- AMD Radeon™ R5 M430 (though I almost always just use the integrated one, Intel HD 620, for anything)
- 12GB of RAM

... I guess that's all. I don't think I can say much about it anyway
My Streams
My usual setup up until now is:
- Bitrate: 1500 Kbps
- Output (scaled): 1152x648

as you can see from the stats above, it's not really good in quality, not even reach 720p at minimum, but I hope whatever HUD you guys see on my game, they can still readable.

I try to compromise as best as I can between my laptop hardware limitation vs my running apps vs my Internet bandwidth limitation vs the clarity of my stream output.
My OSes and Apps to Play and Stream
I have both Windows and Linux installed on my laptop

on Windows, it's pretty much like everyone else:
- the game
- and the broadcast app, either vanilla OBS or Streamlabs OBS (I use whatever i like atm)

on Linux, it's a bit more complicated because we don't natively runs Windows apps there, so there're another things I use:
- Lutris, to set game things in a more comfortable way
- WINE (flavor can be varies, I like tinkering)
