Hello everyone! I'm Matt currently living in the Philippines. I am a self-taught graphic designer and still practicing adobe illustrator, photoshop, and after-effects which means that I learned most of the things from Youtube and other sites that tutors graphic designing because I can't really afford to go to a school that teaches graphics design. I am currently making different projects for youtube videos for me to earn small amounts of money and I have noticed that my current laptop ( Acer A-315) is so weak that it renders a 1-hour music playlist with a complex motion graphics design that'll take 816 hours!
plus it crashes when I do complex editing and with this, it slows my projects and creates a delay for the scheduled posting of videos.
I already found the laptop that I think will suffice my current problem with the programs. With this, it'll create a faster way for me to render the videos and designs that I will make so I could earn small amounts of cash to help my family with our daily needs.
The reason that I have to ask this big of an amount is because of the price of the laptop and the delivery fee. ( I will buy it from amazon ) Laptop - $1,499 + Shipping Fee $672 = $2,171
I am asking everyone for any amount that you'll give me as this will support my dreams to become a certified graphic designer and so that I could give something in return for my parents.
Thank you and God bless!
