    Light laptop for video editing?




      I'm heading on a long trip in Asia where I'll be doing video editing on the go a lot. I'm open to either Mac or PC, with a preference for PC. Can anyone advise me on the best weight versus performance compromise?


      I was thinking of going for a Dell XPS 13 with this setup:


      • 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-3537U processor (4M Cache, up to 3.1 GHz)
      • Windows 8, 64-bit, English
      • 13.3" FHD 1080p
      • 8GB1 DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz
      • 256GB Solid State Drive
      • Intel HD 4000
      • 2.99 lbs


      I'm a bit leary of the Intel HD 4000. The rest seems pretty good to me, what do you think?


      I don't need top notch performance, but I don't want to be falling alseep over my Pad Thai waiting for rendering for basic effects.


      Thanks a lot
