I am a digital illustrator and animator, and as such, I frequently have several programs up and running at once, and bounce assets back and forth between them countless times throughout the course of a project. I am also a youngish twenty-something, and as such, I spend a lot of time bumming around on my couch going into YouTube black holes and not really feeling like getting up to get my charger even though it's only one room away. This laptop handles both of my "modes" beautifully. I upgraded from my old Dell because it had gotten to the point where if I opened Illustrator on top of Photoshop, it took about five minutes of cajoling to get it launched, then another five to open a file. That issue is just... not present here. There is no delay in my work flow whatsoever, and I've saved a crazy amount of time in just the one month I've had this laptop. And the battery life - which had also deteriorated in the ol' dinosaur - continues to blow me away. I bring my laptop to my day job every day to update spreadsheets and type reports and watch Netflix when things get slow (don't tell my boss!) and arrive at home with at least a half-charged battery still waiting for me, and the concept that I can just leave for the day without bringing the charger and be completely fine still amazes me.
Speaking of work, this thing is so light that when I brought it for the first time, I had to stop before I got into my car and make sure it was with me, because my thought process was literally "my bag is way too light; I forgot my computer, didn't I?"
I am by no means what anybody may refer to as a "computer guy," by which I mean that while I can talk all day about particular pieces of software and their performance, the internal workings of a computer all sound like gobbledygook to me. I had assistance in picking out this particular model and was told that it has allotted specific processing power to video performance - it's not something I would've known or been able to pick out from the list of tech specs on my own, but y'all, it's there.
I've rated "value" as "good" instead of "excellent" simply because ~$2800 was not an easy price tag - for the sake of context for anybody who may read this in the future, this purchase took place in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, and I definitely had some help from my government stimulus check, and probably would not have been able to afford it otherwise. But if you do just happen to have a grand and change fall into your pocket, it's worth the extra cash.
