Calling all geeks! I'm in the process of putting together about 200 gigabytes of 1080p GoPro video into about a 30-45 minute finished product. I'm adding opening credit text, video clips, pictures, music, and voice-over. I'm using OpenShot video editor. This is the first video product I've done, and I've come to realize that my laptop is woefully under-powered for this project. I've got about 5 minutes of finished video into the project, and it's now so choppy and freezes so often while working on the project that I just can't get it done. My computer: Lenovo Yoga 2 11" laptop Intel i3-4012Y CPU @ 1.5 GHz processor Intel(R) HD Graphics 4200 graphics card 4 gb RAM memory Windows 10 64 bit operating system Could I add more RAM to this laptop and make it usable? Or am I going to be forced to upgrade? If I do have to upgrade, what minimum specs do I need? I am only interested in Windows computers. I know Apple makes great products, but I just don't like them. And I am only interested in laptops, not desktops. My budget is $1000. This being said, could anyone recommend a good laptop in my budget? And cheaper is better. Other than this project, I really only use my laptop to do word processing and surf the internet, so I don't want to spend the money on a high powered gaming type laptop that will never get used to its full potential. Thanks!
