I want to be a Youtuber and my content will be video games. I will be getting Elgato Gaming HD Capture Card and I plan on getting some type of software for editing photos and videos, while at the same time to download music for my iPhone. What Laptop would be best to get that isn't too expensive but will be exactly what I need. Only gaming on the Xbox One, but editing photos and videos and downloading music on my laptop.

"Too expensive" is relative depending on how much money you can actually afford to spend.

The Lenovo Ideapad 700 is the least expensive laptop I know of which has a quad core i5-6300HQ CPU for $674. Video editing is pretty CPU demanding so a quad core CPU is preferable to a dual core CPU assuming you can afford it. A dual core CPU should be good enough for 1080p video, but anything higher than that then a quad core CPU is basically the only recommendation. The GTX 950m can help improve performance when using any video effect that can take advantage of nVidia's CUDA cores.

If that is too rich for your blood, then there's the Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 with a dual core i5-7200u and nVidia 940mx for $580. It has a 256GB so storage might be a little limited for your taste.

If you have a $500 budget, then there's the ASUS P-Series P2540UA-AB51 which has the i5-7200u and no dedicated graphics. It relies on the Intel HD 620 graphics core.
