Dell Precision 17" 7000 Series Laptop (7710)
There is a lot to like about this laptop for editing, as long as you are not particularly interested in picking out a lot of custom options and components. It has an Intel i5 quad-core processor and comes with 8GB of DDR4 memory, which makes it a great choice for just about any kind of software, especially editing programs. While most laptops for editing come with an NVIDIA graphics card, this one has an AMD FirePro W5170M with 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory, which works very well for editing, especially HD video or computer graphics. You get a 500GB hard drive in this laptop which gives you a good amount of storage although it's not particularly amazing. The 17-inch display looks great and it comes with four USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI output connection, so you can use this model with external displays or connect it to other devices.
