Microsoft Surface Book 2 (15-inch)
This product was recommended by Alex Thompson from Festoon House
This is one of the most versatile laptops as well as a portable tablet that is used for video editing purposes. Microsoft Surface Book 2 comes with a detachable screen and a storage of 256GB/512GB/1TB SSD. Powered by the 8th Gen Core i7 CPU and discrete Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU, it has an incredibly vibrant 3240 x 2160 display that lets you edit at any resolution. Among all the features, I like its bright and vivid 3240 x 2160 making it perfect for drawing, video editing or just watching YouTube videos. It has a powerful battery that lasts for over 12 hours, so you can edit all day without fear of losing a charge.
XPS 15 Laptop
This product was recommended by John Peterson from Safe Drive Gear
We have tried different laptops in the past. But they either get too hot due to lengthy rendering, or there is not enough storage. We are not doing heavy video editing in After Effects. Just Adobe Premiere Pro, and it seems to act up with our old devices. A friend suggested trying the new Dell XPS 15 Laptop, and it has been a great help. It doesn’t get too hot, and it makes our editing fast.
Microsoft Surface Studio 2
This product was recommended by Karen Lee from Things Around The House
The giant touch screen of the Microsoft Surface Studio 2 is the perfect computer for video editing. Use the surface pen to drag and drop video clips and use the incredible operating system to upload large files and work swiftly.
HP Envy 15-ep0123TX

The latest 10th Gen Intel Core Processors and up to NVIDIA GenFORCE GTX 6 GB graphics combine to bring uncompromising power and performance to fuel a faster, more responsive experience while editing photos, videos, and broadcasting. HP command center allows you to customize performance, fan speed, noise, and external temperature-all to meet your needs.
Microsoft Surface Book 3
This product was recommended by Eugene Romberg from We Buy Houses in Bay Area
If you edit a lot of videos – you must know that the nitty gritty details are sometimes missed because of how low your computing speed is. On top of that – don’t you want a touch screen to help you better organize your clips and shots? Well – the Microsfot Surface 3 has all of what you need, and has the best pricing comparably to any other laptop for precise, high quality video editing.
Dell XPS 15 7590
This product was recommended by Sam Shepler from TestimonialHero
Advertised as the ‘The smallest 15.6-inch performance laptop on the planet’, the XPS 15 is everything you’ll need for your video editing duties. Starting from $1,399.99, it is not the cheapest option you could find, but it is definitely worth every cent. For a smooth video editing experience, you’ll need things like a powerful graphics card and processor, a high-resolution display, and a sufficient amount of RAM; and all of this (and even more) you’ll get with Dell’s newest release in the laptops department.
