Wow, thank you so much for the help so far. With just a week and a 1/2 left to the end of this fund raising campaign, I am all the more hopeful we will meet the goal in time.

Not only does your support inspire my own efforts, but it give me hope that things are going to turn around for all homelessness, that efforts to bring homelessness to an end will not be in vain.

Help me reach my campaign goal on #Fundly! You can donate as much or little as you want. Check it out: http://fundly.com/help-the-homeless-guy-blogger-get-a-new-laptop

More Info

As technology advances I'm finding that my current laptop and camera are not up to the challenges of blogging and video recording.   I need a laptop that can connect better with wifi and can process video according to youtube.com specifications - that involves being able to download a lot of video, edit it, compress it and upload it to youtube in a timely fashion.  In support of my attempts at homeless advocacy I am asking you for help with replacing my old equipment.  You can read my blog at http://thehomelessguy.blogspot.com. or google "thehomelessguy".  Thank you VERY much!

The Laptop I Have In Mind.

I've been looking around for laptops in my price range that will be powerful enough to do what I will require of it. And I think I've found the one for me. I was hoping for one that was a little lighter, but this certainly has the functionality I need and is within the price range I've set for myself.

It is the Lenovo y510p. It was designed for gaming, but the truth is, gaming and video making use the same hardware, namely graphics cards (graphics cards and video cards are the same thing - so I recently discovered).

As for a potential new camera, I'm hoping I'll be able to get a GoPro.
