    Laptop for Editing (4K RED)

    barker85 Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I am looking for a laptop; mostly for checking rushes of 4K RED footage and basic field editing.

       

      Would be ideal to be able to playback at 1/2 quality, though 1/4 might be okay if the price difference between two is huge.

       

      My desktop plays back at 1/2 fine though I'm having difficulty working out comparable laptop specs (desktop is i7 5930k/32GB DDR4/GTX 970...can't seem to find any laptops beyond quad core).

       

      Any advice on specs/models that would be required for working with RED footage at 1/2 or 1/4 would be hugely appreciated.

       

      Some I am considering...

       

      FOR 1/4 RESOLUTION ($765, converted from GBP)

      Model:Asus N56JN-CN039H
      Processor:Intel Core i7-4700HQ 2.4GHz 4 cores (Intel Core i7 4th gen.)
      Storage / drive:500Gb / 500Gb 5400 rpm SATA hard drive
      RAM:8Gb (would upgrade to 16GB) DDR3 1600Mhz ram
      GPUnVidia GeForce GT 840M 2Gb DDR3 VRAM

       


      FOR 1/2 RESOLUTION (have found the two below for $1600)

      4960HQ? 6700HQ? Something better?

       

      Many thanks...
