I need a laptop that will cope with light video editing, software development, and maybe a bit of gaming if I have time. I regularly have 30+ tabs open in Chrome, with multiple Word / Excel / Outlook instances open and run disk intensive downloads frequently.
My budget is £875 (GBP) including UK VAT absolute max.
Needs to have
- An Intel Core i7 5th Gen or greater
- At least 256GB harddrive, SSD preferred but can be an m.2 of lesser capacity as long as it has a second HDD
- FHD (1920x1080) resolution or better
- 8GB of RAM or more
Would be nice to have (not vital)
- 15" or larger Screen
- 8 or more hours of battery life on general computing, not intensive stuff clearly
- A dedicated GPU
Bear in mind I have built a PC before, and if a cheaper laptop is upgradeable within my budget, im happy to do that, such as buy a bigger internal hdd or RAM with the laptop all within the £875 (GBP)
