i don't feel both of them are ready for editing and color grading using Premiere Pro

please check here: Adobe Premiere Pro System Requirements

and you will need 16GB of RAM for better performance

a p3 wide gamut display is better for color grading (you mentioned you will do color grading)

I guess the first Model HP Envy x360 15m - BP111dx 15.6" does meet minimum specifications right? and i am pressurized to buy those models because i want a good looking laptop and 360 as well so it has Intel UHD 620 Graphics. i have edited my videos on Dell Inspiron, Ci3, 5thgen with Intel 5500 Graphics & 4gb Ram and it worked fine.

Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2018 12.1.2.69 (x64) i still don't know how pretty it fast was but as compared to other laptops Ci5 5th, Dell Insipron with 5500 graphics was pretty cool than others i tested.

now i want to buy brand new Laptop but some of models that have Dedicated Graphic card aren't available in my town. that's why i posted here to ask if Intel UHD 620 good enough to run premier smoothly and also my editing are not meant to be High they are normal

Have you heard the phase “Your mileage will vary” when it comes to digital video?

If you’re cutting 1080p video or smaller, you’ll probably be fine on either machine.  I’d go with the first one mainly because it has more RAM and a larger hard drive.  Processor speed is important.  You’re going to be waiting a really, really, really long time at 1.6 GHz.

I’m guessing your picked these two model for their low price, right?

For a laptop with good performance, you’re going to be spending about $2,000.  For really good, about $3,000.  For exceptional, $5,000 (or more). 

In some cases, more RAM really does make a difference.  If you think you’ll be using Morph Cut a lot, it actually looks better if more RAM was available (32GB or 64GB instead of 8GB or 16GB).  I don’t recall if both of those video cards are on the supported list or not.  For some processes, like Ultra Key, you actually get better looking results if GPU encoding is available.

My two cents:  Go with a MacBook Pro with as much RAM and internal storage as you can afford.  It’s okay to go used, but try to keep it no older than 2015.

Nope hahah

Yeah my video aren't meant to be 4K just normal at 1080 and what do you mean that the "first" one do have good processor speed or not as i didn't get this You’re going to be waiting a really, really, really long time at 1.6 GHz.

No sir my buget is around $700

so you mean if i have ram around 32gb then there is no need of GPU? and what if i go with second ? and later i upgrade it with 16GB ram

The render times listed below are specific to After Effects, but illustrates the differences in processing time based on processor speed and type.

Simply put, your 1.6GHz laptop make take 30 minutes to do something that a 2.2GHz laptop might take 22 minutes to do.  In general, the faster the processor, the faster the render time.   Of course, there are also differences in processors.  The m3 is probably going to be slower than the i3 which is going to be slower than the i5 which is going to be slower than the i7 which is going to be slower than the i9.

Have you had much time to work in Premiere Pro yet?  Things that are going to be slower with the laptops that you've selected than might be on more powerful computers include the following:  application launch time, importing footage into a project, (depending on the format) preparing footage for playback, rendering transitions, rendering clips at settings that that don't match the Timeline settings, rendering clips with effects, rendering Graphics and Motion Graphics Templates, transcoding footage to a mezzanine CODEC (doing so really depends on your workflow and what you're delivery), exporting to common formats for delivery (including, but not limited to, H264 and H265).  The will all take longer.

Ideally you want a GPU that Premiere Pro can leverage to speed things up when available.  RAM is not a replacement for GPU.

It sounds like you haven't factored storage into your budget yet.  With your 1st choice that has a 1TB hard drive, you might get by working of the C drive for awhile; however, video has a way of filling every last megabyte.  From what you've described, you'll probably be fine with external USB3/USB-C drives.  Just as important as having enough storage space for your projects, you need to make sure that you have a backup.  At the very minimum, I'd add a 2TB hard drive your purchase and clone your internal 1TB drive to it.  You could also opt for a 4TB or 5TB drive and do incremental backups.

Back to processing time...

These are results that I’ve gotten on my end with After Effects using "AE Test" available from Vimeo:

  • Mac Pro (Late 2013)  2.7 GHz 12-Core Intel Xeon E5  64 GB 1866 MHz DDR3  Macintosh HD  AMD FirePro D700 6144 MB  AMD FirePro D700 6144 MB   5min 55sec

Between the two go for the Envy. The Latitude that you mentioned does not meet Adobe's minimum system requirement of a 6th-Generation or later Intel CPU to begin with (the Broadwell CPU that the Latitude uses is only a 5th-Generation CPU). That said, Premiere Pro 2019 will launch on that older platform the Latitude uses, but may experience issues with performance and/or stability.
