Hello I'm looking to buy a cheap laptop to edit and upload my gaming videos
I want to be able to edit the videos when I'm not home so I have decided to invest in a laptop but I don't want to spend a lot
I'm going to be using video editing programmes such as Sony vegas and im also going To be using photoshop
My budget is around £300 but happy to go over a little and I'm also happy to get the laptop pre owned /refurbished on eBay

We recently got rid of a bunch of these clunkers at work.

They're huge, and heavy, but they pack a quite powerful processor for a laptop. Obviously. you'd want one with 8 GB or more of RAM for editing.

Generally, you can just search something like an i7-2670QM on Ebay and come up with some used or refurbed laptops up for sale. One of those, and an SSD or large hard disk, whichever you'd prefer, and I think you'd be solid for what you want to do. Usually come with a pretty decent screen too.

For 300 pounds you can't get a capable laptop. Even for 600 you'll rarely find something capable.
