In this video I’m going to give you my list of the top five best and most affordable laptops for video editing and now to be fair i’ll start off by saying i do all my video editing on this computer and i personally think that you’re better off with a proper desktop computer for a dedicated and productivity task video editing in terms of specs in terms of hard drive space in terms of practicality in terms of everything you get a lot more power and bang for the book if you go with a desktop computer but some people want to be able to edit their videos on the go and they want to be able to do it somewhat affordably but nevertheless i can recommend a cheapo laptop for video editing because you’re going to pull your hair out and for me that’s not a good thing because I’m starting to lose it pretty fast at the back so this is from an article that I’ve written and the opening quote will explain my thoughts on this video editing requires a computer that’s dependable and recently powerful that’s an understatement a subpar net book is simply insufficient if you want an excruciating user experience of stuttering performance and absorbent revering times then try editing 1080p video or even 4k video on a machine with an intel atom browser hardy har if your computer has just one or two gigabytes of ram and an integrated GPU editing will be virtually impossible to effectively use high-end video editing software and be genuinely productive requires above average hardware specifications I think whoever wrote this is very smart and I agree with him because it’s me let’s begin with number five this is the down XPS 13 now this is a super thin and affordable 800 euro or seven hundred and ninety nine dollar notebook it’s an ultrabook actually and it has a very vibrant 13 inch display a sixth generation core processor it provides four gigabytes of RAM which is really the bare minimum preferably you want a gigabytes and 128 gigabytes of st which obviously is ridiculously low by any standard so you will be storing very much video on that but it would be ideal for people who are using an external hard drive which a lot of people would be additional configurations offer a touchscreen double the ram and storage and faster processors the non-touch screen edition of the XPS 13 also provides you a decent 12 hours of battery life let’s move on to number for this is the asus zenbook pro uhd a 15.6 inch $1,500 Windows 10 notebook which boasts an aluminium unibody chassis now obviously that isn’t extraordinarily cheaper anything but like I say you do get what you pay for I wouldn’t want you to buy something was like five or six hundred bucks that was ultimately going to be in sufficient for your needs video editing requires a little bit of power in order to do it well you get 5 12 gigabyte of SSD Thunderbolt connectivity it also includes a 10-point touch screen above all you’re going too fast 6th generation Core i7 processor and an nvidia gtx 960 MGP with two gigabytes of video memory because most high level video editing applications make use of the GPU to help bolster video effect rendering the more video memory you have the better and that goes for adobe premiere pro and also Final Cut Pro 10 so number three is the acer aspire v15 which i have previously reviewed the specs include a 15.6 inch 1080p display the CPUs fifth generation Intel Core i5 a 2.2 gigahertz the graphics chip is the nvidia geforce 940 and with two gigabytes of video memory round starts from a gigabytes the storage is a hybrid configuration of a gigabyte SSD and one terabyte hard drive this is actually the lowest price machine on the list 629 euros or seven hundred and ninety nine dollars you have to keep in mind that the CPU the intel core series processor are their last year’s generation of course this is basically a kind of desktop replacement of the battery life could be a little bit better let’s move on to number two the 15-inch macbook pro the reason why this actually doesn’t go to number one is because apple still hasn’t refreshed the macbook well as i mentioned in a previous video max are now starting to date just a little here in the beginning of 2016 app already needs to refresh these things because they’re starting to fall behind the technical curve when compared to their windows based counterparts but they’re still reasonably priced i would recommend however if you’re going to buy a mac of any kind that you wait until whatever Mac you’ve decided you want to buy is refresh later in the year 2016 has not been a good year so far for the Mac because it’s just not getting an awful lot of love from apple so anyway nevertheless the mid-level $1,500 or 1600 your audition provides a two point seven years core i5 chip now what I would say to you is if you are determined or very much need to buy a an apple laptop or a mac of some kind for work or school or whatever it is you could try buy a refurbished edition or buy second hand or something like that a gigabytes of ram 256 gigabyte flash storage as well and an intel iris 6100 series GPU a long battery life and retina display are two major strength holding a macbook laptop but above all its trump card is Final Cut Pro 10 Apple produces its very own video editing application Final Cut Pro Final Cut Pro 10 is the latest edition of it which boasts a faster and more efficient background rendering system then adobe premiere pro for the pc so that is something to think about finally number one the asus rog g750 to VT – D H 72 rolls off the time the model number may make it a bit of a mouthful but if you want a desktop replacement workstation and video editing laptop with all the trimmings loca no further this would also make for a very good gaming laptop it features a 17.3 inch IPS display that is the largest notebook on this list by some margin the resolution is 10 adp there is upgradable ram and that starts at sixteen gigabytes a hybrid one terabyte hard drive and three gigabytes of gddr5 video memory thanks to the nvidia geforce gtx 970 em will provide enough graphical horsepower for you Apple i/o ports and card readers as well as a DVD drive which is a rarity nowadays come as standard your games and your video editing applications won’t know what hit them so guys that was my list of five notebooks from all across the spectrum in terms of size in terms of pricing in terms of manufacturers as you can see there that will no doubt provide you with a very fast and efficient video editing experience so if you can think of any other laptops that should have made this list please comment below thank you so much for watching and I’ll see you next time,
