    I know of you guys are pc freaks, (Note, Syndicate) so what is a cheap, decent one to get? I will be doing clip editing, slight gaming, and Facebook,blogging, and that stuff of it helps.

    Depends on what your definition of budget is.

    Do you really need a laptop? Are you going for mobility or just staying at home?

    What kind of games are we talking about here?

    When you say clip editing what exactly do you mean and what programs do you plan on using?

    To add on,

    If you don't already, make a Reddit account and visit /r/SuggestALaptop

    If you realize you really don't need the mobility and just getting a laptop just because, /r/buildapc or /r/buildapcforme will be helpful. This involves manual work to build a pc (duh).

    Lolololol a Mac for his needs. And for a budget. Actually, a Mac for ANYHING. You're hilarious soviet.

    Refer to your thread where you got completely owned on why Mac sucks.

    EDIT: *your. Autocorrect came into play.

    He said slight gaming so I'd have to agree. If he's going to be doing more video editing than gaming get the Mac.

    He also said budget laptop. Macs aren't exactly budget laptops.

    I'm pretty happy with a PC that can play games on high settings.

    I just purchased an acre aspire timeline u m5, and it does everything I need it to(gaming and engineering programs) so I'd recommend that

    Hmm. I dunno. But try freedom fighters, best game ever and best 13 dollar investment you will ever make besides ammo for a mosin.

    Computer, Hard drive. That game would require a very good and fast computer. Alot of processing power.

    But I think you said the CPU is the same as the HDD and RAM. Unless I misinterpreted it.
