Default 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...

I'm really happy with my Razer Blade.

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.

More or less retired now. Still on the Essex(UK) coast. Edius 8.2wg all sorts of other, more or less redundant kit - production & Post.

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:
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.
EDIUS silver certified trainer.
Main edit laptop: DVC Kaby Lake desktop processor laptop, 32GB RAM, 3.5Ghz i5 desktop processor, nVidia 1060, Windows 10.
Desktop: 4Ghz 9900K processor, 32GB RAM, nVidia 1660TI GPU, Windows 10.
Desktop: 2Ghz 12 core Xeon processor, 32GB RAM, nVidia 1060, BM Intensity Pro, Windows 10
