Which LAPTOP for VIDEO EDITING? – Dell XPS 15
I just picked up a new computer (which is obviously listed in the title for SEO purposes 😛 ) so today we’re talking about why I chose it, and some other options you might look out for when getting a computer for video editing.
ALSO, i forgot to mention in the video – this is actually my second XPS 15. I got a bad unit on the first go-round, which left me a little bummed, but after exchanging it everything has been working perfectly. Such is life I suppose.
$2600 – THE LAPTOP I WISH I COULD AFFORD
$2600 – MACBOOK PRO
*** $1600 -THE LAPTOP THAT I PURCHASED: ***
$1400 – THE LAPTOP I ALMOST PURCHASED
—This one has better specs, but a worse display.
$1100 – A LITTLE CHEAPER, STILL AWESOME SPECS
—Smaller 13″ screen, also converts to tablet mode. It’s actually pretty sick, kind of wish I bought this one except the processor is dual core…. hmmmm
$979 – LESS THAN $1000, COMPARABLE SPECS TO THE OTHERS

Hey, just found your Channel this week and I’m really liking it! Trying to get into the video side of things more after being in photography for some time. I also have the xps 15 but from almost 2 years ago and still works great, used it for my first 4k video too. Nice choice!
Okay what do you think about the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 5579 9689 (15,6", i7-8590U, 16GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 620) It’s also convertable to tablet mode like the one you mentioned in the comments. Has anyone experience with that laptop?
I intend to buy this actual laptop. Or something with similar specs
How did you know you got a bad unit on the first time round?
when you say it stutters with the effects is it full res playback? and is it on 4k? Does it stutter with a lot of effects on lower res like full hd? Or a lot of layers? Good video
Respect for that what you said about FBI 🙂
Shelled out 1880 for mine. Awesome machine. I pretty much maxed out specs. Best laptop ever.
Getting a refurbished MacBook pro is also a great option especially if you use fcpx.
Hey man, how’s this laptop holding up for you? I’ve read quite a few negative reviews about it regarding quality control and lots of malfunctioning parts. Looking forward to hearing back, thanks!
This video is immensely helpful.
so this will be good for editing 4k? any lag or bogging down issues yet?
Which computer are you guys using to edit your videos?
Just curious… For anyone with an XPS what display colour profile do you think is best for using premiere pro??
Huge question…… do you edit 4k without it being plugged in? does it slow down when not plugged in. Thanks!
Is it required to have a 1070 video card if im going to use adobe premier? Or 1050 will do? Thanks.
Cool. I have the same one!
Hi Cody, just wanted to ask if there is any chance you could do a vid on your workflow/setup. I have just downsized from a full desktop PC to the XPS and just wanted to see how you have setup your drives with regards to scratch/media cache disk, RAW files and exports. Do you use the multiple external SSD or internal M.2 drive etc? any of you help would be much appreciated. Ps how you finding your new A7iii, very interested in get one myself. 🙂
If I get a Mac will it still run adobe properly?
You’re my boy Blue. Question, I just bought the XPS 15 and I have a external monitor and the colors are way off in photoshop. Have any feedback?
You sold me on it. I’m looking for a laptop to edit my 4k drone videos
The reason why this laptop is expensive , it’s 4k Display Dude 😂😂 But I don’t know why I’m still love MacBook Pro 🤣
Why you want the Alienware? My friend has it and it’s so huge that it’s not a laptop anymore, much better to buy a solid workstation. 2" it has decent processors but the same you can have in the XPS or better one in precision 5520. Graphiccard? I don’t know if its such an advantage for vidoegraphy. I guess 80% is the CPU.
Get rather the precision 7520 with the highest specs than the alienware 🙂
FBI isn’t watching my every move ?hahah
Hi about my laptop Acer Predator Helios 300 , what are your thoughts?
Thanks for the review. The girl in the picture is beautiful.
Are you going to do a video on you editing with the A6000 footage? Like explaining what you do and how you put it all together? I love your work. Your videos are beautiful and super helpful!
I edit videos and play some games.. I am looking for a laptop that looks like a gamer laptop but has great specs for video editing. Something that renders fast, and doesn’t heat up. My price range is about 1000…please help!
I was thinking of purchasing this one :
Asus ROG GL753VE-Q72SP i7-7700HQ 2TB 256GB SSD 24GB 17.3 in GTX 1050Ti 4G
What do u think ?????
I just bought a MacBook Air and use Davinci Resolve.. (free version) bit slow and laggy so I might sell it and get a MacBook ..it’s ok one project at a time… just hate how you can’t plug anything into them(apples) you have to buy all the apple adapters that go with them..
Hay. What was wrong with your first unit? Please get back to me.
looks great, would be nice if you made a video showing the render times of this computer and your render settings
what u think of a ryzen 1600 for editing?
what are your thoughts about the sRGB color profile on the dell premier color? is it good enough to edit photos and video?
Hi how’s the laptop so far?
Music name plzz ?
Can you post an update for this computer? How well is it running right now for video editing? Looking for a good laptop for editing my sony a6500 videos
I had the XPS15 for a week. The monitor was not working correctly. It was flicking. Returned. Not happy with this product…
these youtube videos sound all the same same talk same all…
Very poor Chris Jones intro steal
I’m probably going to be using this for after effects. Would it work well with rendering some of the bigger effects and some 3D Effects
Nice. Im also in the market for a new laptop and xps 15 is on my list. Have you checked on the MSI 4k touch screen version? That one is a beast too.
Hey Awesome video! Definitely subbed! Thinking of getting this laptop but how do you run after effects and premiere with a normal fit as the screen is 4k? And how does the speakers sound?
what bag do you use?hope its a lowe pro tactic 450aw, so i would know if it fits
I prefer HP Zbook 15-17 full quad core, the can be purchased real cheap "refurb" and are made for real work, nothing else.
Also you clearly don’t know what you talking about when comparing with MBP. MBP GPU is much worse then XPS, so it’s not a "beast" as you "cool" kids these days say.
Yo! That HP Pavillion! I cant find info on how it stacks up for screen color accuracy?
Thinking about getting the Dell i75777-425BLK-PUS
i7 7700HQ 2.8GHz with maximum clock at 3.8GHz
GTX1060 Max-Q Design 6GB Dedicated VRAM
128SSD + 1TB HDD
What do you think?
Big tip for y’all with 4K monitors out there. If you’re working on intensive tasks, you can go into display settings and set it to 1920X1080 temporary and it will dramatically increase your computer speed!
Hey how’s this laptop holding up for you? Looking into a new laptop and this one usually ranks pretty high for video editing, but the customer reviews are sorta mediocre. Thanks dude!
Are these affiliated links? I want to buy one and would like to use your affiliated link
Whats the most important think in Pc when we’re thinking about video editing? cpu, gpu, or ram ?
