Right now I'm editing videos on my custom PC at home, but leaving the country for a while and the laptop I'm using now is an old Acer Aspire E15 E5-575-33BM from 2 years ago. It has an i3-7100U processor with only 4 GB memory so I don't think it'll work well with video editing 20+ minutes of raw HD footage.

I'm brand loyal so I was looking at another Acer laptop https://us-store.acer.com/laptops/aspire-3-laptop-a315-53-57wf and https://www.amazon.com/Acer-i5-8265U-Keyboard-Fingerprint-A515-54-51DJ/dp/B07RF2123Z/ref=sxin_2_ac_d_pm?ac_md=3-1-QmV0d2VlbiAkNDAwIGFuZCAkNjAw-ac_d_pm&crid=17TW5IXH016L&keywords=i5+laptop&pd_rd_i=B07RF2123Z&pd_rd_r=8086954c-6f69-4468-8f75-de9830fe8f75&pd_rd_w=Po9tJ&pd_rd_wg=G261k&pf_rd_p=eeff02d5-070a-45ea-a79e-d591974b877e&pf_rd_r=2ZYM33TKPP1CCRPQ41K8&psc=1&qid=1566501549&s=gateway&sprefix=2+tb+e,aps,219 the only difference between these two is the black base which I REALLY like and the 4 vs 8 GB of ram between the first and second, but I could buy another 4 GB stick to make up for it. There was a Dell laptop in that price range too I was considering but haven't had too much experience with Dell laptops. I don't really want to go over $550 for my laptop so I'll have to sacrifice some time during the video editing/processing process.

Any other suggestions for laptops? Also how would I sell my old laptop? Is there a trade-in service anywhere online? I can't sell it back on Amazon where I got it.
