My brother wants to edit some videos he records while trucking and just needs a laptop that can edit without crashing.
I suggested he just gets an sd card reader to use with his ipad, but I'm asking around just in case he'd rather have a laptop. He only plans on using it for youtube watching and video editing, but no crazy edits with wild effects though, simple stuff.

Hi there,

For your brother's needs, now he might not need a laptop for simple video editing and YouTube works, but over time, with increasing list of videos, he would be better off with a reliable laptop for sure. I once bought a budget laptop for my gaming needs, but I did end up falling short. At the price of $400, I don't think you'd find a new laptop that is worth for carrying out video editing and other YouTube stuff. You can either go for a refurbished or used version of Acer Aspire 5, HP Pavilion 15, and Dell Inspiron 3000.

Hope this is useful!
