Looking for a new laptop. Help?

by brandonu22 / October 11, 2017 3:11 PM PDT

So it is time that I start looking for a new laptop.

I'm looking for a laptop that can handle the full adobe creative suite (mainly Photoshop, Illustrator, Final Cut, and InDesign) I do a lot of graphic design and film edit work.

Outside of that I also love to play video games, and would love to be able to at least run medium settings. Currently my laptop can barely handle low settings for most games.

I'm just curious what is a good cross-over laptop?
I was thinking of just biting the bullet and getting a mac (as everyone I work with has one and it would kind of make the streamline much simpler) but I want to play games as well, like Overwatch and League of Legends mainly (Would like HotS, Paragon, Destiny 2 as well)

Any input would help; thank you!

Final Cut means you're looking at Apple laptops.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
