    Been using Vegas for over 20 years now (starting with SF 3.0) and it has become my go to editor.

    For over a decade, I’ve been using my trusty Toshiba Qosmio X875-Q7390 Laptop.

    It was top notch back then and still worked well enough for all my needs using Vegas Pro 15 right up to last night when I finished a big 4k render

    Unfortunately, the screen just went blank on me this morning, so now I’m on the hunt for a replacement machine

    I’m willing to go down in screen size (my Qosmio is a beast), but I want enough speed and storage to handle whatever Vegas has to throw at it

    Touchscreen would be nice, but not a deal breaker

    No. I’m not up with the current Machines. Good luck!

    Well, after taking it to my shop and blowing out the dust with some air, the screen came back to life (yay!!)

    Still looking into a new machine though just in case

    Found this page:

    One thing I notice with the new machines is that they only have one HD

    I loved the fact that my old Qosmio has two 1TB HD’s

    I bought a dell xps laptop for video editing after watching reviews on Youtube… I saw that I could add a second SSD harddrive myself (there was a spot for it) and how to upgrade RAM myself. I bought a 17″ version, the new 17″ versions are the size of what 15.4″ laptops used to be (smaller edges around the screen), spent over $2,000 so it wasn’t cheap but I LOVE it, so maybe check the dell xps series out. If I were a writer I think I’d get an HP instead, I like the key touch of HP laptops more than Dell. (Bought off Amazon FYI)
