So I might go for the surface pro after all, and maybe even just the 4 rather than the 6. I hate computer shopping, i can never decide!
    Totally forgot to report back on this. I DID get the surface pro 6 and it's AMAZING! I have been using premiere pro at the same time as after effects and having multiple browser windows open at the same time. It does not miss a beat. It takes amazing pics and automatically creates these cool little video previews from your media. And it's sooooo freaking small and cute, I take it everywhere now

    if no one is complaining about the price, the price is too low!

    �� �� thank you so much !! That’s what I was looking for. I’m in a crunch and can’t wait to order one so I’m overpaying at BB

    And apparently SW has been storing emails that I deleted from my inbox. I will get that cleared up once I have a laptop up and running. Thank you ladies again!

    I've updated the original post. Getting a computer at Best Buy is still a good option when you do the homework. Use it for a few days and then you can return it directly if it's not up to par. I used to be afraid to order computers from Amazon but it turns out the return policy is super quick...if it's under their warranty. It took 5 days for a return, refund and a new delivery.

    Ughhhh - I was going to buy the ASUS ROG Strick Scar Edition i7- 16g 1tb 128ssd with a 1060 6gb graphic - but - after reading the reviews on Newegg to many overheating reports and loud fans - my previous laptop was a Lenovo and I never had a problem with it until this and it’s 7ish years old - trying to breath and regroup - just super bad timing for me to lose my laptop but I dont want to panic and blow 1k on a bad decision -

    What exactly did your laptop do? You may just need to do a reset. You can either do a reset that wipes out all files or a reset that saves files, but wipes out all programs.

    I just recently reset a 6 year old Lenovo P500 with a 3rd generation I7 processor and it can still handle live streaming, encoders and some video games.

    It would not boot up - when you turn it on it goes to “Preparing Automatic Repair” then a black screen - we tried to open it using another operating system but couldn’t get past the security so we pulled the harddrive and tethered it to another computer and got all my stuff off of it and then onto a backup - I thought I had my recovery key for Windows but I can’t find it since My move so I called Lenovo to get it thinking they had my info but they didn’t - so I’m waiting for my son-in-law to call me back with my serial numbers in the am - I left my laptop at his their house - it may be salvageable I’m not sure yet- an upgrade was on my list for this summer and keeping this Lenovo as a backup - I have to have a laptop for my vanilla job too - for it to go down now though was just bad timing - March is a shitty month for me financially- car tags/ insurance - my professional license renewal dues etc....

    update - I ended up buying the ASUS I mentioned above - the others were either out of my price range or had some sort of issues on the reviews too so..... Just got it up and running tonight and Im loving it so far - cant wait to cam with it tomorrow

    The hard drive is cooked on my old Lenovo - im going to replace it once I recoup a bit of money so I have a backup

    Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread


    Edited to Add - had no clue that this laptop did not have an Ethernet port Apparently thats a thing now - I didnt bother to look for one since I assumed they were standard on a laptop - a trip back to Best Buy and 25.00 for an Ethernet adapter and all is good -
    Clients definitely noticed the difference on skype

    I went on http://www.newegg.com & was eyeing a cam. I looked @ cams also on best buy, but they're high there. I may go check out their laptops

    But, then I started looking @ laptops, I want win8, I have a refurb lenovo, & an Asus (win10) neither of which I like.

    Anything at Best Buy is more expensive than online. Go to Best Buy and find the laptop you want and look for it online. IMHO, Windows 10 is better than Windows 8.

    I paid about 200.00 more for mine at Best Buy than if I had waited but I needed it right away for my vanilla job

    Hi ladies

    i have been reading through the posts on here as i need to look to get a new laptop, currently using a hp i7 dual core processor, splitting three sites, two just cam it sites and sm with the new sm connect. Problem is sm is really cpu heavy and now with the new connect its messing up my other sites so need a new laptop. What would be the best laptop to purchase so i could run these three sites and possibly add another two more without it compromising my streaming quality

    okay so i have been researching computers like craaaaazy. is 8 core / 16 thread the best that can fit in a laptop?? it's the highest i have found

    this is the one i'm really considering. its expensive,just under $4k but i realllllly don't want a desktop.

    Processor: 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-9900K (8-Core, 16MB Cache, up to 5.0Ghz w/Turbo Boost)
    Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2070 8GB GDDR
    Memory: 32GB, 2x16GB, DDR4, 2400MHz
    Hard drive: 512GB RAID0 (2x 256GB PCIe M.2 SSDs) + 1TB (+8GB SSHD) Hybrid Drive

    does anyone know if this is powerful enough to run 2 versions of FMLE and 2 versions of OBS ...would upgrading the graphic card or memory to 64 GB help me splitcam more sites??? i really need a splitcamming monster lol


    heres the link incase, i selected the better processor and more memory

    If money is an issue, max out your video card because that's more difficult to upgrade later. You can easily upgrade your RAM memory later yourself.

    You'll be able to operate the Hubble Telescope with this set up. Splitcamming shouldn't be an issue. But WHY not a desktop? You would be able to cut down on the the cost if you had one built.

    Hey, so I'd like to offer some quick feedback:

    I recently bought a new computer with an AMD Ryzen processor. Specifically, the Ryzen 7 2700x. It's AMAZING how blazing fast these things are!

    My specs are the following:

    * AMD Ryzen 7 2700x
    * 32GB of DDR4 RAM @ 3000MHz (2 sticks of 16GB each in dual channel).
    * Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card
    * One 256GB NVME high speed Solid State Drive.

    Man, this thing can handle multiple sites at once AND play videogames at the same time no questions asked! Mind you, for Streamate I'm using their new interface, SM Connect with the web encoder, but it's quite well optimized and it looks like they did a good job with WebRTC (The HTML5 tech behind the interface).

    So yeah, for this year I'd recommend trying AMD Ryzen. They're a GREAT bang for the buck!

    AMD is releasing new CPUs soon, so keep an eye on that.

    EDIT: Below is an example of a build you could order with IBuyPower, which is quite a great bang for the buck!
