Best Laptop Under 1000 For Graphic Designers

This video has been a long time coming! I will be presenting the best laptops under 1000 dollars for graphic designers. ►►► Full List of Laptops Below – Don’t Miss It!

I have had a lot of you asking questions about the laptops on a budget. I have found that the “budget” for most designers is under $1000.

► HP Pavilion X360 ( )

► Acer Aspire 5 ( )

► ASUS VivoBook S 15 ( )

► Lenovo Yogo 710 ( )

► Dell G3 17in ( )

Now, I must say this is a VERY difficult thing to come by because there are certain performance specs you need to be satisfied with your laptop as a designer. So I recommend these laptops with a certain degree of caution. I often will steer people towards slightly more expensive laptops because I know they will be far more satisfied with their purchase in the long run.

However, I have received numerous questions about specific laptops and peoples interest with finding a laptop under $1000, so I thought it was due time to create this post. I appreciate these questions because this helps me understand what you are looking for and how I can better help you on your journey in graphic design or other design fields.

Disclaimer: these are NOT my absolute top favorite most fantastic picks just so you know. These are laptops that I think are well enough equipped to handle the ins and outs of graphic design, but are not my top-rated machines. “Then why would I recommend them”, you may ask. Well, because not everyone has the budget to get the best of the best, so I wanted to give a guide to those people on a budget but still ready to jump into graphic design.

Alright without further stagnation, let’s jump into the content! What is a great computer made of from the inside out?

Your Laptop should have at least 8GB of RAM in order to run multiple applications at the same time. I would not recommend ANYTHING LESS than 8GB. Most laptops have the option to upgrade the RAM. If you are going to be investing in a new machine for your graphic design career you should definitely start with at least 8GB and consider moving up to 16GB when your budget allows.

The Intel i7 processor is still my benchmark processor inside of laptops for graphic design. But most budget laptops come with an Intel i5 processor. The i5 will run the Adobe Creative Cloud applications well, but be careful not to have too many tasks open at one time as this will cause your computer to slow down. There are budget computers that come with even smaller processors. Avoid these. You will be very dissatisfied with the performance. This is NOT a sales ploy, just the facts from a graphic designer with 10+ years at the craft.

I would highly recommend trying to purchase a laptop with an SSD (Solid State Drive). The reason being? It adds speed and readability to your computer. When you own a solid state hard drive there are ZERO moving parts. This means that there are far fewer opportunities to malfunction. Trust me you don’t want your computer to crash in the middle of a very important design job. You want to have a minimum of 128GB hard drive in your machine. If you are working with a lot of files you will need a whole lot of storage space. If your budget allows, an upgrade to a 256GB or 512GB would be a great move.

Note: If you don’t want that large of a hard drive you could always buy an external drive by Samsung to handle your data.

The GPU is really important, but only if you are considering getting into video editing. When using programs like Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro they will run best on NVIDA GPUs. Don’t go for anything less than a NVIDA .

But for the sake of the budget laptop category, you don’t need to be too concerned with this category. BUT, as I said, if you think you may get into video editing then I would wait till your budget increases and you can snag one of the laptops from the Best Laptops for Graphic Design

  6. For advanced psd(3d) and illustrator(3d) and InDesign and corel draw dell g3 17 i5 8 gb ram perfect?? I m beginner in graphic design so will practice extensively

  7. Hey Ben , shall I get MacBook Pro 2015/16 or other laptop almost priced at $1000 for graphic designing and it should at least last long like 3-4 years and should not lag ,I’m a student and just starting ,so can you suggest one?

  8. Im a little late to this but im looking for something around 1200 I need something slim for school and can use for illustrator and photoshop and some video editing.

  9. Hey Ben! I'm an aspiring graphic designer looking to get his first laptop. As a student my budget is very limited which has led me to look into purchasing a refurbished laptop and I've been debating between an xps 9560 or a MacBook pro. They're both generally around the same price of 1,200 and I just wanted an experienced opinion on what would be the better buy. Great content as always hope to see your channel grow!

  10. Is it worth it to get an macbook air 2018? I've recently just started graphic design and I've only started to use Photoshop in september 2018. Is it good for new students who only just getting started in graphics.

  11. Hi Ben, is it still reasonable to get the Microsoft surface pro 3 now (4 years later) as a design student under a budget or is the system too outdated?

  12. In all honesty, and I know it can be tough for a lot of people cuz I've been there, but if you can shell out 1k for a laptop just wait a little and save up for a little longer and buy a refurbished XPS or something. I CANNOT express how much bang for your buck you can get with a $1,200 refurbished machine over a new under $1,000 machine.

  13. i think this is a response to my comment on your last vid 😅 i'm here before you reach high subs. thank you very much 🙏 this is a big help 😊
