Not sure how using plain function solve the over100 example. If you replace the over100 computed with a plain function, sortedList will then be directly dependent on count.value so it will still be re-computed 100 times, no?

It's so hard to come up with examples that are not about foo & bar and still demonstrate what you want to without being overly complex or missing the point 😅

Yes, a plain function would not help in that specific scenario. It can help in others.

I've already planned to revisit this article and add/change a few things to make my points more clear. For now, I added a note about this so people don't get a wrong impression.
