If the new laptop must be at a similar same performance as the desktop, it will have same/similar CPU, GPU and the rest. But given how much we can get for say 1000 in a desktop (read http://www.pcworld.com/article/2040319/build-the-ultimate-intel-haswell-pc-for-under-1000.html for example) it's clear you won't be getting as much in a laptop.
Reverse the search and see what laptops are offered for your price and then compare.
Hi all. This is my first post here, but I have used this site numerous times in the past for research purposes.
I am here as I am having trouble making up my mind on what to buy...
I do a fair bit of HD video editing on a custom build gaming PC and it does the job perfectly but I am looking for something more easily transportable so that I can take my work from 1 room to another.
I am currently selling my PC and am looking to put that money towards either a laptop or an all in one pc.
One particular thing I really want is a backlit keyboard. It may be superficial, but I have had one for the last 3-4 years and hate the idea of going back to a non-backlit keyboard.
Other than that, it needs to be able to run Adobe Premiere pro and to edit HD video footage and a SSD would be nice, but not essential.
My budget really depends on how much my PC sells for and in all honesty, because it is a custom build, I have no idea what it will go for... Hopefully around £400-£600? £700 at a push.
Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
And if you need any more information, just ask.
