thanks for visiting lptps.com!
Here’s what I suggest:
- I think your best choice is the Samsung Notebook Spin 7. It’s a good quality, pretty portable 13-inch hybrid with a dedicated graphic card to let you do video editing smoothly.
- For a less expensive choice, I’d go with the Asus Q304UA. It doesn’t have a dedicated graphic card, but at less than $500, it delivers a lot of value and it’s even more portable than the Samsung. (you’ll still be able to do some video editing, it’ll just be slower)
- Another choice would be the Acer Spin 5 at around $600. Again it doesn’t have a dedicated graphic card, but it has everything else you need for a fast, quality laptop (including an ultra-fast SSD drive).
I hope that helps! Don’t hesitate if you have more questions.
