Keyword RECORDING, not editing. I have a desktop with an i7-8700k for editing. The one issue is that my desktop is just too loud for recording voice-over. I am using this mic https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-AT2020USB-Cardioid-Condenser-Microphone/dp/B00B5ZX9FM and I'm looking for a cheap, and most importantly QUIET laptop that I can plug the mic and a flash drive into, record my voice using Audacity or a similar program, save to flash drive, and move to my desktop for editing.
My question is, can a cheap processor or other hardware component negatively affect the quality of an audio recording? Do i need an i3 or i5 CPU for my laptop to handle capturing quality audio, or would something like this suffice? https://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-stream-14-laptop-intel-celeron-4gb-memory-32gb-emmc-flash-memory-aqua-blue/5623611.p?skuId=5623611&ref=212&loc=1&ksid=437c2185-5576-47cd-9d4a-795753d732eb&ksprof_id=8&ksaffcode=pg198981&ksdevice=c&lsft=ref:212,loc:2

You need an external audio interface. To build-in sound cards in laptops or desktops are not good enough. There are sound cards such as Focusrite Scarlett that will have excellent recording sound.
