buying a new laptop

by brittanybrass253 In reply to Help buying new laptop

If you're locking for a laptop that is good for video editing, Id recommend getting an HP stream 11 pro notebook. The display is 11.6' HD includes windows 10 pro 64. For video editing you have 4gb of ram and 2.4 GHz CPU and your processor is N3350.

SSD is a priority

by enjoylivingsite In reply to Help buying new laptop

SSD is what you should look for since it's the new era of hard drives. An i7 might be an overkill for word and light video editing. So if you can find i5 + SSD it would be ideal for your pocket.

There are really many models of laptops which are nice for video editing. In your case you definetely need a model with SSD, they're the best in case of hard drives for video editing. With them you'll get a perfect balance for size and speed and you can dump footage to your laptop. But I should mention that your harr drive should be 500 GB or even higher. In case of processor Intel 5 or 7 is the best choice. Nvidia and AMD are the best brands for graphic cards too.
Considering all these specifications, Acer laptops could be the best choice for you. Acer Swift 1 and 3 are considered as very good ones and many reviews on special tech resources prove that .
