I'm shootin' for a new laptop, the one I'm going for is called an HP Pavilion dm4-1160us 14-Inch Laptop PC
. It's on sale at OfficeDepot for like $200 off I believe.
The processor, RAM, hard drive, battery life, size, all looks okay
. If the screen size is an issue, I'd definitely look into buying an external monitor to hook it up to, or better yet a TV through HDMI if I had to. But I'd definitely need something I can carry to school easily
The only thing concerning me is the graphics card and the sound card
. I don't know anything about either of them, the rest of the hardware I know about decently.
As for the graphics card
, I'd like to be able to stream 720p YouTube videos (My current laptop can't, that's how bad it is)
, 1080p would be nice too. And of course stream it smoothly and overall have good performance with it
. I'd also like to be able to play Minecraft (On that note, also play it online without lag and with just overall good performance)
, don't know anything about 'em; well I am a musician. I'd like to be able to run programs like Mixcraft, Ableton Live, FL Studio and such smoothly
. But as a musician who does a bunch of producing, mixing, writing and is even going to major in Music Production and Design
or Audio Engineering
, would it be a good fit? I'm really into audio hardware too
I know this is a lot, but maybe someone could help, I'd definitely appreciate it a lot
. I'm gonna try to pick it up tomorrow if I feel satisfied with my decision.
So thanks ahead! I really appreciate it!
