2020's Best Laptops for Streaming and More!

No one can disagree that this new world that we are living in has pushed us (and our hardware) to its limits because of our ability to stream our classes. When it started you probably made do with whatever hardware you already had, and that’s fine. However as your audience has grown, you may have found that you wanted better quality video, which can mean a better laptop, camera, microphone, and audio add-ons.

You might be surprised to learn that streaming requires a considerable amount of processing power; you simply won’t be able to stream like a pro with an entry-level computer. But that doesn’t mean you need to buy the most expensive laptop you can afford, either.

If you are only broadcasting yourself from a camera and microphone, you can get by with a relatively modest system. If you are simultaneously streaming via a camera and mic, or even lining-in though, that’s a different story — you’ll need a beefier computer to deliver crisp, smooth high-resolution content to your students, not to mention handling normal day-to-day activities.
