HP Envy 17 3d ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to buy a HP Envy 17 3D

I will use it for gaming, 3d 1080p movies, and video and picture editing.

I'm on a tight budget and was wondering if I need more then 6 gigs of ram? Possibly 8 or 12?

Also does Windows 7 Pro compared to Windows 7 Home Premium make a difference in gaming and video editing or is it the same?

I know home premium is maxed out at 16 gigs of ram which I wont use...

Any true insights would count, Thanks.

6 is plenty... but you are looking at a very expensive laptop either way.
