  2. Matthew Gonzalez on January 26, 2022 at 2:06 pm

    I followed just because of that calm and cool intro and the arm wave transition. It was cool

  3. Caio Amaro on January 26, 2022 at 2:09 pm

    gtx 1650 ti…fast? Not in 2021, sorry. This is an apple fanboy list of random non-apple laptops. Next.

  4. ShinySun 001 on January 26, 2022 at 2:09 pm

    Hp envy x360 is only $878 in your country and $1400 here in India🙂

  5. Mara Nostas on January 26, 2022 at 2:11 pm

    I’m switching from a MacbookPro to sth else. Apple is great looking and it does wonders but it gets to a point where you just start having problems and ypu can’t add any more storage to it. As a web designer who edits many videos and also does a lot of graphic design work, apple is simply not the right choice.

  6. MUNDE DEEPAK on January 26, 2022 at 2:13 pm

    what about hp pavillio 15 gaming laptop is it okay

  7. Siska Dyason on January 26, 2022 at 2:13 pm

    I’m thinking of getting the MacBook pro but the 13th inch one because the 16th inch is really expensive.

  8. Donnell Reynolds on January 26, 2022 at 2:13 pm

    No way you did not mention the surface book pro 🤦🏾‍♂️

  9. Noah Black on January 26, 2022 at 2:16 pm

    I Am A Beginner of Graphic Design trying to learn the ropes On how to digital tize My Art And Master It And this Is why I Research to see what’s the best one to get for my situation

  10. David Spark Igbanny on January 26, 2022 at 2:16 pm

    Acer concept 👍

  11. BUDYBOI on January 26, 2022 at 2:18 pm

    Alright what would you personally recommend for the MacBook Pros specs?

  12. Equity on January 26, 2022 at 2:19 pm

    This is so helpful!!! 🙏

  13. The Falcon Nation on January 26, 2022 at 2:21 pm

    As a person who can finally afford to get rid of this Macbook pro yup Apple is my sworn enemy. In Apple’s defense this is an old model but sis can’t take it no more. Macbooks are really beautiful and aesthetically pleasing both externally and internally and sturdy as a beast but they overheat and lag waaayyy too quickly. I’d also wanna be able to game on my laptop and the options for mac are just way too limited. I’ve been a mac user for 7 years but I think it’s time to switch back to windows (oh god I need to relearn how to use windows). I’m thinking of getting an asus or acer but can’t decide yet. asus was the #1 contender before you showed me that beauty of an acer concept and now it’s back to square 1.

  14. Ademola Adebambo on January 26, 2022 at 2:23 pm

    Impressive. The MacBook is king. Period

  15. WHY? on January 26, 2022 at 2:25 pm

    Bro, how about MacBook air with M1(512GB) ?
    i couldn’t afford a pro version 😭

  16. YEYOOOZ on January 26, 2022 at 2:26 pm

    Hi adrian, what computer would be good for vinyl cutting software?

  17. Eva Maynard on January 26, 2022 at 2:26 pm

    I love macs but how do they communicate with android anything? I don’t want or need another mac email address. I don’t need or want issues accessing my music and video libraries between my android devices and the computer. Am I missing something? Are they still restricted to all ios devices?

  18. notme? on January 26, 2022 at 2:26 pm

    Lenovo legion 5 pro is great bruh which is 2k display 165hz

  19. HUGG BEES on January 26, 2022 at 2:27 pm

    The computer has evolved more times than I have in my entire life.

  20. sadz on January 26, 2022 at 2:30 pm

    Hey bro idk if you’ll see this in time but I was looking at the ASUS ZenBook 14 UM425 Full HD (AMD Ryzen 5-4500U, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Backlit Keyboard, Windows 10) would you say this would be good for my little sister who’s studying graphic design at school

  21. _ Ar8 on January 26, 2022 at 2:30 pm

    I wouldnt recommend 8gb ram to any graphic designer

  22. Zaman Ahmadi on January 26, 2022 at 2:31 pm

    Graphic card, processor, RAM, display resolution, SSD storage are all what mtters for graphic designing, gaming laptops with high end graphic card, display and processor and Mac are good choice.

  23. Shiloh R on January 26, 2022 at 2:32 pm

    Out of all of these, what would you say is the best for animators and multitaskers? I like a lot of these but want one that uses W10Pro.
    Thanks for making such a comprehensive video on why all of these are good choices. I’ve been looking to replace mine but not sure where to start.

  24. Sreyleak Hor on January 26, 2022 at 2:35 pm

    How about MacBook Pro 13" processor 2,7 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 memory 8 RAM 1867 MHz DDR3 Startup Disk Macintosh HD Graphics Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB Version 12.0.1. Is it good for that or not?

  25. Alisha Aljamal by Alisha Aljamal on January 26, 2022 at 2:37 pm

    Which laptop ca you recomend I am starting out on in design and illustrator which laptop has good colour accuracy and performance and which one comes with a pen for sketching or which drawing pad is good to use alongside the laptop that has similar sensitivity like the acer d3

  26. Mystic Maven on January 26, 2022 at 2:37 pm

    Thanks so much for the video I was so lost now I know exactly what I need! 😌

  27. NNNedlog on January 26, 2022 at 2:39 pm

  28. Delsher on January 26, 2022 at 2:39 pm

    What is the cheapest best graphic design laptop? These laptops are so expensive

  29. VYBEZ BRAND AND CO. on January 26, 2022 at 2:40 pm

    Cool review.

  30. bWWd on January 26, 2022 at 2:40 pm

    These are overpriced a lot cause theyre new, the specs to price ratios arent that great and wacom pen tech is working as good as the ones that cost about 100$ so if you want gaming sure you can buy these

  31. Ibrahim Ajao on January 26, 2022 at 2:41 pm

    I just want to start learning graphics design. Pls what cheap laptop would be good for me sir

  32. Sly Fox on January 26, 2022 at 2:45 pm

    Is a good gaming laptop also a good laptop for graphic design?

  33. Anela Tea-Ana Claiborne on January 26, 2022 at 2:45 pm

    I’m go try to find the acer

  34. casey on January 26, 2022 at 2:46 pm

    Wish I can afford the Acer Ezel 😭

  35. Fra Aaa on January 26, 2022 at 2:48 pm

    Hi, I’m looking for an uncompromising notebook, that is, I don’t have to use it to play, but to work, and do everything; without a specific job. I would like these minimum features 16 Gb Ram, AMD 7 or amd9 processor, dedicated graphics card of at least 4GB, battery that lasts a long time and not noisy. What could you advise me? Understated design. Would a Gaming notebook be good for normal use and, if necessary, also for editing and playing? For normal business use ??

    I come from 1 old pc that lasted me 11 years hp dv6 i3 (crap) and my idea is to buy a bomb that can last me another 10 years, with which I must have no limits of use and performance.

    I am looking for a laptop with a super look like an Asus rog G14, something like that, could you help me? Kudos to the channel and advice ❣️
    I also rate Dell and other brands …

  36. Lupo Kik8 on January 26, 2022 at 2:50 pm

    Can i ask you ! For acer nitro 5 gaming i5 gtx 1650 4g i don’t want it for all of gaming . Is this laptop for designer or architecture and editing? What is your opinion?

  37. chengtzuu on January 26, 2022 at 2:50 pm

    Hi, love your YouTube Adrian. Very informative. I’m currently deciding between MacBook air m1 16gb and Acer nitro 5 (AN515-45-R6J7) Ryzen 7 5800H, Nvidia geforce RTX 3060. I’m using it for photo and video editing and I hope to have a professional recommendation from you as both of them are about the same price. Hope you can give me some guidance. Thanks so much and keep rocking your YouTube channel

  38. Marko Jani on January 26, 2022 at 2:51 pm

    what do you think about Lenovo Yoga 9i 15.6” i7 10th gen?

  39. 緑前 on January 26, 2022 at 2:51 pm

    just go and watch a linus tech tip video. this guy is saying things that he doesnt really understand. e.g, the listing ryzen 9 (beat i7) just means that its suggesting that ryzen 9 is better than i7. a marketing thing since the actual difference between ryzen and intel is more nuanced. essentially, ryzen can do more things but intel, i7, can do each thing better. my 2 cents is to just go intel. less drama. i5 or i7 get the more expensive one if you have the money. more importantly, ram and a good NVME M.2 ssd is important. not all ssd(s) are the same. a sata ssd for example is just a little faster than a regular hard drive. you need that NVME in the name so its running connected using the same way as your graphic card, thus makin it alot faster than a regular ssd. and get a big one. you are going to need enough space for somethin called cache or scratch disk. basically once that thing fills up your photoshop will lag like a bitch. you can restart your computer the refresh that. so if you get just enough storage and not leave much empty space, good luck with constant restarts my friend. from what i know, photoshop does not really use much gpu horse power. so just get anything with a gtx or rtx in the name and youll be safe.

  40. Lubna Halde on January 26, 2022 at 2:52 pm

    Hey, I don’t have much experience in laptops but I’m interested in Acer ConceptD. Could you tell what’s the latest ConceptD model and suggest if I should go with the one you suggested or the latest one available. Your vid has been so helpful, Thank you.

  41. Vixa RS on January 26, 2022 at 2:52 pm

    2.4g Ghz up to 4.2 Ghz? As many cores as you can? I5 to I9 but not explaining what to look for, what generations to look out for? None of that even makes sense.

    At one point you even mentioned a laptop had a ryzen and a "beat i7" which was the listing literally saying that the processor "beat" an i7 in benchmarking, but you perceived it as having two processors I guess?

    At another part, you said that the "dedicated graphics card" meant it was dedicated and "not built into the motherboard". Thats not what that means at all? Any nvidia gpu in a laptop is "dedicated" – that just means its not integrated within the CPU?

    100% sRGB is not "awesome" for a designer – graphic designers are looking for high Adobe RGB scaled displays, not sRGB?

    This entire video was just keyword nonsense and at most parts you just rambled on and mixed up keywords.

    Nothing you were saying made sense, you even contradicted yourself at multiple parts.

    I normally wouldn’t rag on anyones videos, you do you, but you are advising people on thousand dollar laptop purchases and literally spewing nonsense and misdirecting anyone who watches this.

    Don’t do that. Make videos on topics you know.

  42. Peter Pagh on January 26, 2022 at 2:54 pm

    try look at the keyboard layout. good luck programming with the < > / button moved to a random arbitrary location

  43. Kevin Zari on January 26, 2022 at 2:54 pm

    An macbook air with m1 could work with those program like Adobe creative cloud ?

  44. Sly Fox on January 26, 2022 at 2:54 pm

    Is the lenovo legion 5pro good for this?

  45. Abdellah Idalioua on January 26, 2022 at 2:58 pm

    I have a really low budget (500$) what do u suggest for me ?

  46. James Dean on January 26, 2022 at 2:58 pm

    Seems that you just pull names out of a hat and made a video.

  47. fidhu Sherin on January 26, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    I want graphic card and Adobe after effect.
    Best laptops you can tell me

  48. Arye Avraham on January 26, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    13.3 INCH Is really enough for graphic design and web design? Isn’t it too small to work with?

  49. Jb Almanza on January 26, 2022 at 3:01 pm

    Hi Adrian, I just want to ask since I viewed this recommended laptops for Graphics Designs is it also recommended for Programmers? or any suggestions / recommended Laptops for Programing. Thank you in advance.. and God Bless.

  50. First Name Last Name on January 26, 2022 at 3:01 pm
