It's easy to get a lot done in front of a desktop PC, especially when it comes to video editing. Taking full advantage of the available performance, rendering projects and making edits doesn't take very long if you have a moderately capable PC. For laptops, it's usually a different story. Portable computers can come with lesser powerful CPUs, GPUs, slower RAM, and storage. All this makes for a terrible video editing workstation, but there are viable options out there.

We recently rounded up a shortlist of devices that can be used for video editing. The main factors you need to consider is the CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, and — of course — price. Speed is everything and you need all components to work well with one another, allowing video editing suites like Adobe Premiere Pro to handle huge projects.
