I'd be very surprised if it couldn't handle BA and Betfair video. I'm currently using a 5 year old laptop with an i7-5500U processor and that has loads of things all running at once including 5 excel windows, 2 instances of betting software etc etc

I would say that yes it would cope OK with BetAngel running on it, as Betfair Apps arent particularly demanding for CPU or memory usage.

However if I was looking at buying at laptop I might be tempted to go for an AMD based machine something like https://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-Pavilion-15 ... ers&sr=1-3

This is same size screen (touch screen capable), same 8GB Ram, but you get double size SSD and a 4 core 4 thread CPU instead of a 2 core 4 Thread (Passmark scores 5725 compared to 3486)

Its 50 quid more, but you pays yer money and takes your choice (I havent got either of these laptops so just looking at specs.)

have betangel on a microsoft surface, think they are very fast and good.
1920-1080 screen resolution for me its not enough for betangel if you want to fit video or other apps as well.
