PS4 stronger than my PC?

So I don't have any computer science degree.
My son tonight suggested I use the PS4 instead of my laptop, if the laptop got ruined, and well...

Why not?

It looks like it's pretty impossible to hack.
But it leads me to a lot of questions.
It runs amazing amounts of data for graphics, and although a vast majority is not memory; (it's either online transfer of data, or disc transfer).
I wonder, if there are mobile hard drives capable of Terra-Bytes of data, why is this not a thing?  Or even plugging a memory stick in, and using that to process data from coding experiments instead of the CPU hard drive? 

Would it be so hard to make something like that possible?

step 1) Download coding shell that runs on the memory of the inserted ISB device...
step 2) Insert USB
step 3) coding shell detects available memory
step 4) download compatible code editor
step 5) write code
step 6) system runs code in that shell, in that memory
step 7) if inserted USB becomes overloaded, Shell shuts do…

be back soon

Life has given me some lemons, So I'm attempting some lemonade.

I'll be back to making and posting code soon hopefully.  I love it, and no way am I giving up.
But meanwhile, I have to find a place for my family to live, get my health figured out, and wrestle with poor internet.

So, a neat little tip I figured out today:

My dad had a text file he saved in some crazy format, and I needed to fix it after I saved to a .txt file.

The simple text editors I had did not have what I needed to find and replace all the leftover formatting prompts from the cross to a text document.

So hey,  My code editor can do that!!!!
Atom on my alienware (currently in storage),  and BlueFish on my laptop.

Find all --->  \par
replace with --->   *spaces
*click option, replace all
done....  240 \par's gone.

Anyways, I'll see you all around!
