    Hello BHW-Com!

    As I am travelling more and more, I'm looking for a transportable computer to buy (only got a shitty android tablet, worse than bad for IM stuff)

    So for those of you who have laptops/notebooks, can you recommened one?

    tasks:
    - IM stuff (bots, etc.)
    - HAS to have windows
    - little gaming (minecraft, maybe call of duty, indie games)
    - video editing (not too professional, AE and sony vegas should do)
    - good battery

    as always, thanks in advance
    amex

    Edit: Almost forgot, 15,6" screen and up to 750$

    I just a 15.4" Macbook Pro and I absolutely love it. It only takes about an hour to fully charge and lasts for like 6-8 hours. The graphics are amazing, great speed, and awesome features. I paid $2500 for it new, but you can find some cheaper, used or refurbished ones on eBay since you don't want to spend more than $750. But, you get what you pay for. Good luck! :)

    I just rent mine. Nothing special. Just found a rental service online and rented their best laptop. Suits my needs. :p

    Currently waiting on the Asus Zenbook Infinity, but the Sony Vaio Pro 13 is one excellent machine.
