hi, i'm working in tawau, sabah. as we all know is a red zone for covid. so movements are very limited. so for now i prefer already built desktop/a laptop. if i'm to buy one, which online stores would you recommend? i use it for music production (ableton + tons of kontakt galleries) and also for video editing, mostly 1080p. and a little bit of gaming, mainly old games (too busy to catch up with latest gamings lol). i can manage up to rm3-4k budget. thank you in advance.

Would recommend a gaming laptop, can look at Level51 or Illegear which are custom gaming laptops, more value for money rather than mainstream brands

Production and video editing, wont go wrong with Dell.

RM3999
https://www.dell.com/en-my/shop/laptops-and...160154111pmyw10

RM3499 without monitor, you can buy a monitor cost around RM500 from your local IT shop.
https://www.dell.com/en-my/shop/desktop-com...w217051000myw10
or add one of this monitor from Dell too
RM479
https://www.dell.com/en-my/shop/dell-24-mon...tor-accessories
So RM3499 + RM479 = RM3978

If you are doing music production, you'll want a desktop/laptop with low enough DPC latency icon_idea.gif

Note though, it's still best to ask the reseller on DPC latency, as this metric is particularly important for real time video/audio creation workloads icon_idea.gif

Macs are not susceptible to this, due to their walled garden ecosystem (and so they can optimize the drivers/software very meticulously) - however there are certain Windows laptops that are geared towards such purposes, like this XMG DJ15 (essentially a Clevo with optimized BIOS/firmware/drivers):

Shellac is the perfect combination of nail polish and gel. Shellac is just as easy to apply like nail polish and feels pleasant and natural after nail modeling. Unlike normal nailsnail polish, it is applied in 3 thin layers consisting of a basecoat, colored lacquer, and topcoat. Due to the individual layers, which are cured under an LED lamp or a UV lamp for a few seconds after application, Shellac is just as durable as a gel model. Shellac nails will stay flawless for up to 3 weeks without chipping or scratching. They are also a good choice for beginners in nail modeling.
