    I was installing some new software and vector images. I finally found the limits of my budget dell. I am actually really surprised considering I have done video and photo editing, website design work etc all on this little ditty without much fuss. Well, I was installing affinity design and photo, as well as some new vector graphics and the same time and the machine hung for like 30 seconds. Back to business as usual after that.

    I just wish it had pen support. It would be a keeper. I would love to have pen support for graphics manipulations with the vectors.

    All in all the 650 bucks I spent all together on this machine brand new plus SSD and Ram is well worth the cost.

    intel 4405 cpu, 16gb of Balistic ram, 1tb kingston SSD and intel onboard graphics. Like I said, when I bought the system, I just needed a new laptop to get back on the windows platform from the crappy apple I had. So I bought this computer. I knew I would be upgrading it, and I did. I also bought my wife the 11 3000 2 in 1 system from the same year with the i3. Hers has a 500gb kingston in it. It works great for her too. As long as I dont try to do to much at once, I am fine with the speed of this little cheap machine.

    So, This past week with my dell, I edited and finished a video in resolve, created some new graphics for our clothing company in affinity designer, edited photos in affinity photo, edited and created some website pages for our websites and started writing for my blog and a book. I cannot complain at all about this computer. For someone who does not game and am not under time constraints like a editor in a studio etc, I recommend this machine. The screen is bright when maxed out and is clear.

    I am soon going to be creating some more content for some new YouTube channels I am working on. I love this device. It works great, and for me, it's money well spent and money not spent well!
