Answer Peru Bob's question
The ASUS ZenBook UX-501VW has this as a graphics card options
"NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M with 2G/4G GDDR5 VRAM"
That should work ok with some simple media types, simple editing workflows and providing the on board storage configuration is adequate.
Thanks for the link to the other discussions.
I will be editing photos and video from my DLSR camera - the video is 1080p. I don't think the videos I will be editing will be long, likely around 5-10minutes.
I had been thinking about the Asus Zenbook Pro but was concerned because the GTX 960M wasn't posted as a compatible GPU on the system requirements list. Do you think that's a problem, or will the 960M do the job just fine?
Sure wish they would update that Zenbook line with the GTX 10 series nVidia graphics, but yes the GTX 960M will work, just not as well as what I would like.if I were to get a new laptop.
