Hi guys,
I hope everyone is doing well! My birthday is coming up in a month and my parents are thinking of buying me a new laptop for college.
Their budget is €500 but I have €210 and I'll also probably get another €50-100 off my relatives. So basically my budget is around €750-800.

I don't know much about computer hardware but I know the basics. I want a laptop that's good for:
  • Video editing (no fancy special effects or anything demanding)
  • Web development
  • 2D game development.
  • Light gaming (Minecraft, Kerbal Space Program, maybe stuff like Apex Legends etc)
I also don't want a downgrade from what I currently have: Lenovo Ideapad 305-15IBD.

Would an Intel i5 or similar be enough or would an i7 be good?

I don't use the 1 TB of storage my laptop has but I might if I'm doing video recording (still 512 GB would be ok too).
Other requirements are:
  • A decent battery (>5hrs),
  • 2 HDMI ports or HDMI and VGA (require at least 1 port, preferably 2)
  • Minimalistic design with little to no bezels like the Huawei Matebook
For reference, this is the laptop I want but cannot afford: Asus Zenbook duo but the Asus zenbook would be nice too.

Is there anything in my price range or do I need to spend more money?

Thanks in advance for the help!
