Can anyone recomend a good laptop for hd video editing?

by mapdude / April 22, 2013 1:34 AM PDT

My budget cant go over $600. I use corel videostudio pro x5 and I edit videos in 1080p. The videos I edit are about 2-3 minutes long with no special effects that are any crazier than simple green screen effects.

Ive been using the Hp probook which has been working fine, but gets a little laggy after a while.

I've been looking at the Asus k55n-ds81, which ive heard is amazing for $380. Tell me what you think! And thanks in advance.

(Sidenote) I don't need a ton of hard drive space because I have a 750gb external so maybe just around 500gb but that isn't a big factor for me.

we should know the difference between a laptop and a desktop .we should also recognize the existence of desktops .if laptops can do all the works effectively the existence of desktops would be questionable. Any way laptop's config's have increased a lot but they cannot compete with the desktops with the same config.
To get rid of lagging disable all the unnecessary plug-in's and close all apps in background and simply save your ram space. Im sure this would help you.

Ok thanks I just broke my neck and can't really sit up for a long period of time the only thing I can really use is laptops due to positioning issues.

Is there a benchmark I can offer? Sorry, no, I won't buy any specific app but I can run a benchmark. However I have already swapped the HDD for a hybrid 1TB drive and my extra 4GB RAM may be installed before I can do this.
