Thread: Laptop for video editing

  1. #1

    Question Laptop for video editing

    Which of them is more suitable for video editing (and maybe there is something unnecessary in them)?

    MSI G GE620DX-691UK -
    Processor Intel Core i7 2670QM (2.2GHz)
    Display 15.6" Full HD (1920x1080) LED backlight
    Memory 8GB (2 x 4GB DDR3)
    Graphics Nvidia GeForce GT 635M, 2GB DDR3
    Hard Disk Drive 750GB S-ATA (7200RPM)
    Operating system Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
    875,00



    or

    The 15.6" Optimus II (custom built from pcspecialist) - I think it's Clevo
    2670QM 2.2GHz8GB
    750GB (7200)
    GT 555M with 2GB
    1920x1080
    Matte
    Home Premium (64-bit)
    893.00


    The second one has matte display and also I can add thermal paste and has warranty aswell, but MSI simply has better image for me...

    You'll get much better performance from a laptop if you've got a second HDD to store the video. I think that pcspecialist laptop can be configured to have a second laptop. And you can have a third instead of the optical drive. If you don't fancy dong this yourself, go wit pcspecialist.

    May I encourage you to try scan.co.uk, I''ve got one of their laptop systems and I'm extremely happy with it.

    Sounds like the same one I got my eye on - for $1395 Australian - does yours have USB3 ? That is the 'new biggy' for external drive speeds etc.

    The second one has 2x2.0 and 2x3.0. MSI probably doesn't. It seems, that in England the deals aren't cheapest... However, hard to find any company that ships their products from USA or Australia.

    BTW on that Asus the 5400rpm HDD looks the weakest point. But those 16GB looks really tasty

    Hmm you got me thinking, but I don't see the HDD speed in my spec, but the website states the following available

    2.5" SATA
    750GB 7200rpm
    640GB 5400rpm
    500GB 5400rpm/7200rpm
    500GB 7200rpm With 4 G SSD
    320GB 5400rpm

    ASUS - Notebooks- ASUS N53SV

    Since this is a 750g I presume I will get 7200rpm

    It converts to 888 uk pounds, and I trust ASUS a lot, and confidence in a brand is everything to me

    Any reason, please?

    I know it sounds better, but couldn't find big difference. Just RAM limited upto 16GB and and no XP mode.

    If there is something more important, just tell me, please.

    (well the real reason I'm taking them is - I need a Install DVD for another laptop

    OP, if you are having a PC build, the comments re USB3 are valid and having more-cores and Muitthreading is good too (but needs suitable software, I believe)...also I think ASUS /NVIDEA does graphics cards (NOT Integrated graphics), However, for serious editing I think you should think about a Desktop - so much easier to modify.

    I think a 750G HDD is somewhat small, however Posts #2 and #4 really set the alternatives. 2Tb drives are under 100.
    A small additional feature you "may need" is a Firewire connection...again, this is unusual on modern PC's, but a PCI-card is under 10 and will give you a 4-wire and 6-wire socket which can connect with tape-based digital camcorders.
