What We Think Important for Video Editing Laptop

Processor – i7 is recommended but i5 is good enough.

RAM – At least 8GB. More than that will speed up your work.

Hard Drive – 500 GB enough for video editing. More than that will help you to store more.

Display – At least 15″ needed. 15.6″ is perfect for video editing. Don’t go more than that, if you plan to carry your laptop very often to somewhere.

Graphics coprocessor – Personally I recommend NVIDIA GeForce. But there are lot more graphic coprocessors.

Weight – Not the big issue for video editing. But personally I recommend, Don’t go for more weight, if you need to carry your laptop more often.
