    Hey there, I'm looking for a new laptop. I'm decently computer savvy however still learning quite a bit on what things mean i.e., RAM, SSD, cores and whatnot. I am looking specifically for a 2 n 1 hybrid. I'm hoping to use this to do some good quality video and sound editing as well as play the occasional game. I was looking at the Surface Book 2 15" but it was a little on the pricier side so I was trying to avoid that one. I've narrowed it down to something with 8 gen i7 processor and ideally nvdia genx graphics. Any ideas? I just want to be able to do some cool graphic video editing works and drawing while still having the freedom to play some decent games.
