Example? My old Lenova y530 with its 4GB RAM, 4500MHD, core 2 duo can hook up and play HD over HDMI just dandy. You would be hard pressed to find slower and less capable machines unless you went below 300 USD.
So I'm looking at replacing my HP Entertainment laptop. But I'm not sure as to what specs I should be looking for or if certain brands are better in this department.
So here is what the laptop will be used for:
Streaming movies, TV shows and sports (some in HD) often connected to my HDTV but not necessary
Photo editing (amateur, but lots of it) - this is sort of a driving force in the new machine
standard emailing and internet searches, but often with multiple windows/tabs open
creating documents (word and others)
perhaps some minor webpage management for selling photos
Any suggestions on specs or brands that would be best? Some have told me that I need an Apple? Is that true? I don't mind going that route if it is the best option.
