When it comes to video editing, there are several factors to consider when choosing a laptop.
Here are a few key things to look for in a Video Editing Laptop:
Processor: A powerful processor is essential for smooth video editing. Intel Core i7 or i9, or AMD Ryzen 7 or 9 processors are ideal for video editing tasks. For beginners in editing one can consider even core i5 or Ryzen 5 too if budget is an issue. We recommend atleast hexacore (6core) processor or minimum quadcore (4 core) processor. Dual is strictly no for editing works.
RAM: Video editing can be memory intensive, so it’s important to choose a laptop with at least 16GB of RAM. If you plan on working with very large video files, 32GB or more is recommended. Again for beginners 8GB can be considered however make sure 1 slot is empty so that you can upgrade to 16GB later. Dual channel Ram is best bet in all the cases.
Storage: A fast storage drive is important for quick access to your video files and efficient rendering. Look for a laptop with a solid-state drive (SSD) rather than a traditional hard drive. Yep HDD is strictly no for editing stuff. Also faster m2 ssd should be considered in all the cases.
Display: A high-resolution display with good color accuracy will make it easier to edit your videos. A 4K display is recommended. 100% RGB is also a must for laptop screen so that one can have a look at every possible colour. Again for 8k display for 8k video editing, 4k display for 4k video editing is a must. For budget buyers even a Full HD display is enough to start with.
Graphics Card: A dedicated graphics card will help with the rendering of video effects and transitions. Nvidia or AMD graphics cards are recommended. For 4k videos a graphics card is a must. For Full HD video editing even laptop inbuilt graphics can be done with.
Some of the best laptops for video editing are:
MacBook Pro (16-inch)
Dell XPS 15
Lenovo ThinkPad P1
ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15
HP ZBook Studio G5
It’s worth noting that most high-end laptops for video editing tend to be quite expensive. It’s always a good idea to look for one that fits your budget and meets most of the requirements you have.
