Solved! Best Laptop for Video Editing Under $800AUD - Lenovo i5 or Acer A9? Help!

Dec 15, 2018
Hi, I need to choose a laptop for some video editing - mainly 1080p, some 4K - and I need to choose between these laptops. This laptop will also be my day-to-day laptop and I hope it should last all the way thru high school (yr7-yr12)

This one: ( is an 8th gen i5 8GB RAM machine but I'm worried about lack of dedicated GPU.

The second is an Acer Aspire that was recommended to me by store staff as a bare minimum for editing - an AMD a9 with onboard graphics, 8GB etc.

Help! Which one will offer best performance!?
