My old Core2Duo 4GB RAM laptop did 1080p just fine to a HDTV so your laptop is steps above my old laptop.
I can't guess what you feel is substandard on the editing. Video editing, and now HD Video editing is a lot of work. Some new to this will feel it's slow. It really isn't. My first laptop video editor would take 6 hours to render a video that would later be burned to a Video DVD. Today my outdated Dell with a first gen i5 does that in 20 minutes.
That said, try a 500 to 1000 GB SSD.
hello, i own a Toshiba satellite L50-20BR PSKTNA-02R016 it has a Intel® Core™ i5 Processor 5200U (1.6GHz - 2.6GHz (Turbo, 2 Cores) 1600MHz FSB, 256 KB per core L2 cache, 3MB L3 cache).
Also has 8gb of ram DDR3L (1600Mhz).
I just wanted to know what i can do to this laptop to improve performance in regards to editing and streaming, I dont want to game on this computer but i would like to improve it so it can handle streams well in HQ. Ive heard i cant upgrade the cpu on this model is this true, if not what can i upgrade it to?
Any modifications to help its performance in these areas would be appreciated!
