Hi everyone! I've been jumping around the internet all day without really getting any information. I don't make huge purchases often so I'd love some help to make sure I get the best one possible, please :)


I am looking to buy a new laptop, preferably a 2 in 1. I am a blogger and primarily want the laptop to be able to photo and video edit (although not on a professional high end level) so it needs to run photoshop, jasc paint shop pro and filmora smoothly. I want the 2 in 1 function because I can imagine my editing time being cut in half with the touch screen function. I also want the freedom of movement! :D


I am also hoping to find one with a stand alone graphics card should I want to play games in the future - this isn't required and certainly isn't a priority enough to go for a gaming laptop. The editing takes priority.


I was REALLY interested in this Lenovo 510 with (This one http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/lenovo-yoga-510-14-2-in-1-black-10146159-pdt.html) but when I spoke to someone at Lenovo he dismissed my choice instantly and directed me to a £1000 laptop.. I am on a round about £500 budget.


He also wouldn't explain why the one I am interested would not be a good match for me. Actually. After he linked the expensive one he just stopped talking..


ANY help would be amazing, thank you SO much in advance!

Well of course the spokesman wants you to buy higher as they are trying to get you to buy into a more expensive model.

Is 2 in 1 that vital though as really what you are paying for more is the touchscreen and not the actual inner parts that make the computer go.

I mean yes the model you linked will probably do for your budget, after all its not like there are too many options for what you are looking for in your budget.

You know you want me baby!
