Hey looking for some general advise. My current laptop is not powerful enough to do what I need it's a HP Pavilion quad core amd 1.9ghz 4gb ram 1 TB. I'm looking at buying a new laptop to stream to twitch.tv via OBS whilst multitasking with Web pages and youtube song playlist playing through the stream. I have a laptop in mind here are the details:

Useful info:

Windows 8.1
Intel® Core™ i7-4710HQ processor
16Gb RAM
Hybrid 1Tb 5400rpm SSHD (8Gb) hard drive
JBL speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio V2
15.6 inch FHD (1920x1080) display
Ext DVDRW
Nvidia GTX-860M 4Gb Dedicated Graphics
Ports: 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 2.0, HDMI-out
4-in-1 (SD / MMC / SDXC / SDHC) card reader
720p webcam
Battery life up to 5 hours
Lenovo Y50-70 laptop

So your thoughts please folks will this be good enough for what I want to do??

Note it won't be used for gaming just streaming my XboxOne Gameplay with Elgato HD Capture Card..

Thanks in advance folks.

That laptop will certainly be powerful enough, perhaps overkill even! However, I would recommend getting the newer version of the Lenovo Y50-70:

This version is mostly identical, except for the improved graphics card.

Awsome dude thanks for getting back to me so soon. Good to know that it will be more than suited for the job. Thanks for your suggestion that model is like 900 GBP here in the UK the one I have been looking at is available on a deal price with a very reputable online retailer for 669 GBP 241 cheaper.
But thanks again bud

Windows 10 comes with Defender, an excellent antivirus application that should suit most home users' needs.
