I'm looking at buying a new laptop. I'm trying to stay under or around the $1000 mark. I'm currently looking at the Acer VX 15. I will utilize the laptop for a variety of things, from work (mostly office suite stuff), to gaming, and the occasional video editing. When I edit, I mostly use Avid studio and it is just personal stuff (movies of my kids or highlight films for our area sports teams). The i5 would save me about 100 bucks. Is that worth it or do I need the i7-7700? Also, will the drop to the i5 impact me much gaming? I do like to play RTS and strategy games ranging from Command and Conquer to Civilization. Any advice would be appreciated.
