So my old laptop has decided to kick the bucket so I'm looking for a new one.
My budget at the moment is $1000
The programs I plan on using are:
Paint Tool Sai, Aseprite, Illustrator, Photoshop, Game Maker, and OBS.

A friend of mine suggested this one

But I'm not sure if that's a good one or not

Thats one brilliant laptop you found for the price, but I would really build in a ssd.
you will certainly notice the peformance, but you can swap the hdd for the ssd later on.

For 1000$ you get that laptop and then add an ssd in there as mentioned by superninja that is a damn fine deal.

Edit: forgot to say it's supposed to have a free m.2 slot for a ssd.
