    Fellow72 Level 1

      Hello guys,


      I'm on a quest to find the best currently available laptop for video editing. As stated, I need it for Premiere pro and After effects respectively.


      I've been a bit out of touch on processors and GFX cards lately so I needed some opinions in case I miss something.


      The best laptops that I've seen as favourites coming up are:


      The Macbook Book Pro.

      • 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 4980HQ
      • 16GB 2133MHz memory
      • Radeon Pro 455 with 2GB memory
      • 512GB PCIe-based SSD1
      • Four Thunderbolt 3 ports
      • 9 Hour Batt


      Razer Blade

      • i7 - 7700HQ
      • Nvidia GTX 1060
      • 16GB (Max)
      • 256GB SSD
      • 5.5 Hour Batt


      Dell XPS 15 2017

      • i7 - 7700HQ
      • GTX 1050
      • 16GB (Expandable to 32)
      • 512GB SSD
      • 7 Hours Batt


      The Macbook obiously isn't an option because of the Radeon, but I through it in there since it always comes up. But is that it? And also, are there no 6 core i7 laptops yet? I haven't seen any and was hoping there would be by now. My desktop workstation is a i7 4930K, 32GB ram, with an OC GTX 780 Ti and I built that like 3-4 years ago. I guess there isn't a laptop equivalent yet due to cooling limitations is there? Anybody aware of the full spectrum of the market. The most Id be willing to spend is 3K CAD, but realistically I would like to spend 1800-2500 CAD. Thoughts?
