Understand video editing requirements

To start the search for the best laptop for video editing, you should first understand what is video editing in general. You record a video, but you end up with multiple shoots. To collect that footage and combine together is video editing in simple words. A simple video that requires only a few cuts and footage combinations is just beginning.

If you really want to catch the audience’s attention with your video, you have to use motion graphics, text elements, color grades, multiple b-roll shots, layers of audio, sound effects, and the list continues.

Now you can say, “I don’t need to do all such stuff. Why should I choose a high-end laptop?”

Let me explain why!

Today you may be just starting out, but after just six months, you will certainly think of enhancing your video quality. Any laptop with a very basic configuration is priced at ₹30,000-40000 in India. Now, you needed to enhance your video quality, but your 30K Rs laptop is of no use as it can’t handle a few text elements and your 30K rupees have gone useless.

Hence, I encourage you to choose a laptop with a decent amount of processing capability and a graphic card for a better rendering process. That should be your basic requirement for choosing a laptop for video editing.

Can I choose a gaming laptop for video editing?

I got my first laptop considering the slim design and compact factor. I was very tight on budget and my laptop cost me around ₹45,000 four years ago while writing this post.

I managed to edit 100+ videos on that particular laptop for over one and a half years when I started my YouTube journey. Isn’t it cool?

No, I ended up with a lot of trouble learning complex stuff due to my laptop’s limitations. Rendering one video with very basic color grading and text elements used to consume hours it slowed down my process by a significant amount of time.

That’s when I realized, that if I had chosen a gaming laptop, I would be in a better position to learn and enhance my video quality.

In simple words, when you choose a gaming laptop for video editing, you save a good amount of money and still get very good performance. A slim laptop in this budget range of 50K-60K cannot provide you with enough performance for high-end video editing. Gaming laptops are also good at heat management, thus providing you the capability to edit videos for long hours.

Key specifications for the best laptops for video editing

You can choose many high-end laptops that will provide you best possible specifications to tackle all computer power requirements. However, if you are on a tight budget, you end up with very less options. That’s why there has to be a balance between specifications and budget.

In my opinion, if you are starting with your video editing journey, or reaching out to a moderate level of editing, you must consider the following specifications in your machine.

  • At least AMD Ryzen 5 or Intel core i5 processor
  • 8GB or more RAM
  • A fast 512GB SSD
  • 4GB of dedicated graphic card
  • A good IPS display with a great viewing angle

These are a few basic specifications that you should look for.

My top pick best laptops for video editing

Considering all the above requirements, I have listed out the best possible options in the current Indian market to narrow done your research on the best laptop for video editing in the 50K-60K budget range. Check them out:
