  • Best Laptop for use with Edius

    I am about to look for a new laptop for editing with Edius. I edit HD files mainly AVCHD and will use it standalone for BD/DVD disc creation too.

    Can anyone please suggest any good models or anything I should be looking out for?

    Price isn't too much of an issue but nothing too mad!

    I would like to stick to a banded one if possible

    thanks for any advice...

      The last one I had built (DVC in the UK a couple of years ago) was based on an HP zBook i7-4910MQ, probably old technology now) Been delighted with it ever since but like you all my work is HD, nothing more demanding.

        We used to mainly supply laptops which are based on chassis made by a Taiwan company called Clevo. you can get them here in the UK: https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/laptops/
        The most popular were the "Octane III" which use desktop i7 processors. They are the fastest you can get and have Thunderbolt 3 so you can add a Blackmagic device if you want to see a picture on a proper screen. I use one with a 1060 graphics card as EDIUS does not need the extra power of the other cards.

        They have Kaby Lake i7 processors but do not do Quick Sync. The laptops with laptop processors have QS and are also a bit lighter and have a better battery life. However, they are not as powerful overall as these laptops.

        HP make good quality laptops but they are just more expensive than buying one of these PC Specialist models. The HPs always use laptop processors. They will have Quick Sync provided they don't have a Quadro graphics card or a 10 bit screen.

            Not sure what your budget is, but something like this might do: https://pc4u.org/best-laptops-for-co...r-500-dollars/

              I thought that nowadays all computers are compatible with any programs. This is weird. I mean this makes sense if you need to run special programs for all kind of specialized gadgets. My nephew came to me the other day, and told me that he needs a new computer and asked if I would contribute. I laughed really bad, until he showed me this article: https://thecursedcrusade.com/best-la...ring-students/ So here is the question, is this a joke? Or is there really a kind of classification for best computers for students? I mean, I don't know if I should believe this or no!!!!

                If there are too many h265 videos, choose Intel. If there are too many non-h265, select AMD,If you buy a light notebook, please don't consider Intel, overheating will cause a great loss of performance.
                refer to this.

                  Think it depends . If you have dual GPU's you can have Quick sync when you switch the GPU on EDIUS start. :)

                    This was true in 2017 when I posted that message which we had found out the hard way after selling a laptop to a customer and finding that with a Quadro you could not enable Quick Sync; the Intel GPU is not listed in device manager and there was no way of enabling it in the BIOS as you would with a desktop. With the laptops that use desktop processors you can't get at the QS either and I use one of these all the time. Since I stopped selling PCs I have not been able to afford to test out lots of new laptops so maybe it is different in 2021.
