Hello All,

 

I am looking for a somewhat budget-friendly video editing laptop. I am willing to go up to $1,500 but would prefer not to. Do any of you have any suggestions? I am looking for plug and play, I do not want to buy anything then immediately switch out GPU or add memory (if possible). I have a small agency and just hired my first person. I need something they can edit remotely on.

 

Thanks!!

 

Dave

Premiere and a budget laptop is usually a bad combination.

 

Moved to hardware forum.

If you are trying to do things on a budget, you may want to consider Premiere Elements instead.

The hardware requirements are a bit less demanding.

I posted this in another topic a few minutes ago.  

 

I don't make movies, only videos up to about 15 minutes.   I travel in an RV a lot so the choice is a "standard laptop", but "gamer" style.   One was an ASUS Repuglic of Gamers.  It died so I replaced it with a Lenevo Legion Y545.  The Lenevo was $1100 at a big box store.  It has an i7, 16 GB RAM, an Nvidia GPU, a 500 GB SSD and 1 TB HDD.   

 

I have no trouble editing 4K in Premiere Pro or running any other Adobe software.  

This one is similar, still under $1500, but better with a larger SSD.
