Kelsa is still using Windows Vista and has finally decided it's time to get a new computer. What should she get? She's a freelance reporter and actor, so she needs a lot of space and the ability to edit video. Leo says that for video editing, she should be looking to get either an iMac or Windows machine. Since she's against Mac, she should get a better quality Dell with an SSD and then use a lower budget editing program like Adobe Premiere Elements for under $100. Leo gets Dell Inspiron workstations for editing video at TWiT. An i5 or the AMD Ryzen processor would be fine. 16GB or RAM. 512GB SSD drive. Expect to spend under a $1,000. Dell also has some affordable 27" monitors.
