Laptop for Video Editing/ Some Gaming/ Work


Feb 24, 2014
Hello! I've been searching for a laptop and looking through these forums especially, haven't exactly found anything that fits my criteria yet. I've had an ASUS R510DP for 2 years, and this thing has caused me so much anguish and money out of pocket just from the sheer amount of issued it had. Things I'm looking for are a nice look (for work), large storage space, handling a lot of video editing, and some casual gaming. Any help is very greatly appreciated. I'm going to include some of my specifics that I saw in another forum to make this easier. Thank you pros!
