My budget is 900

My recent laptop got jacked up after I tried to upgrade the RAM. Due to it, I may have lost all of my music and art smh.


So im looking for my next investment to be worthy and I won't have to upgrade anything.

I'm looking to compose instrumentals using fl studio, Omnisphere, maschine, Gladiator, nexus, and massive

And I'm also looking to do visual arts using Photoshop and after effects CC.

Any suggestions guys? Much appreciated man. It's been a stressful couple of weeks dealing with all of this.

    For around $150 more you can get a refurbished MacBook Pro that'll come with a warranty

    Alright, not too knowledgeable about what they have going at the moment but hopefully their hardware at that price point has improved. In my experience Windows 🤬 works great out the box but tends to get bogged down after a few months of use and keeps gradually getting slower and slower.

    How did you manage to jack up your laptop changing the Ram?

    Windows Boot up? If so then this should be an easy fix. My last laptop I got from eBay for a $140 and free shipping.

    if your hard drive is intact the data is still there an can be recovered. More than likely everything is intact.

    Get a desktop.

    No, really... get a desktop. For less money than a laptop you can get a far faster desktop and decent audio interface, especially if you're running FL Studio. Trying to look at everything on a 15" 1080p display will suck ass. Doing it on a 19"+ is much easier on the eyes.

    just read this. All you need to do is pull your laptop's hard drive, stick it in a USB hard drive enclosure and connect it to another PC. All of your data can be backed up that way. A drive enclosure can be had for under $15 for a 2.5" joint made for laptop hard drives.
