    that thing is worth approx 60% less than you're offering it for. Garbo.
  4. look please don't shoot me but maybe this might be a fun idea? goes for 1000$ as well, packed with and i5 and the latest in intels hd graphics, plus its just cool. Though if you plan on doing some intensive video editing it might not be the best choice? i could be wrong just thought id throw the idea out there.

    cheaper one but smaller SSD
  5. You're right i am overkill at my price. I suppose i am just being optomistic that i would get more into video editing if I had a decent computer to do it on.
