Performing editing work on the laptop has now become quite the norm, with most content platforms demanding quick turnaround time. As a result, editors now do not want to waste time even one bit and even use their commute to carry out their work. However, to ensure that you provide the best quality work through your laptop, you need to look at certain features like the processor, integrated graphics, internal memory and RAM to say the least. As such, many people assume that a powerful device would cost them a pretty penny. However, that is not necessarily the case always. With that in mind, if you are looking for a budget laptop to perform your editing work, then here are four laptops available on Amazon that you should definitely consider.

ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DT 

The ASUS TUF Gaming laptop model is not only great for gaming but also for your editing work, thanks to its advanced processor and integrated graphics. It runs on an AMD Ryzen 5-3550H processor with a 2.1GHz base clock speed but can go up to a speed of 3.7GHz. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR5 graphics card should allow you to use almost all the major editing software with ease. The PCIe NVMe 512GB M.2 SSD internal memory helps in easy storing, extracting and importing of data quickly. The 15.6-inch backlit LED-backlit display comes with a 120Hz refresh rate and has an anti-glare feature that makes it ideal for long use, even in a dark room, which is usually the case while editing. The thin bezels should make for an immersive viewing experience thus allowing you to focus on the details of the content with ease.

Lenovo Legion Y540 

The Lenovo Legion Y540 runs on 9th Generation quad Core Intel I5-9300H processor with a base clock speed of 2.4GHz and a maximum speed of 4.1GHz, making it one of the most powerful laptops in this segment. Moreover, the integrated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB graphics card should make it pretty good for editing work. In terms of memory, it offers 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD internal memory, which should be more than enough for most use cases. It comes with a 15.6-inch display that gives you Full HD picture quality and has a refresh rate of 60Hz. The company claims that the laptop has five hours of battery life, making it ideal to use on a short journey as well.

Acer Nitro 5 Spin NP515-51 

The Acer Nitro 5 Spin NP515-51 comes with 4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Integrated Graphics card, making it ideal for almost all kinds of editing work. Moreover, it runs on a 1.60GHz 8th Gen Intel i5 8250U processor and 8GB RAM, making it efficient enough to run your apps without too much lag. Furthermore, it has a 1TB 5400rpm hard drive, giving you enough space to store large files. Another really cool feature of this laptop is that it has a large battery life of 11 hours, as per the claims of the company.

HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec0026AX 

This HP Pavilion laptop comes with an AMD Ryzen 5-3550H Quad-core processor (2.1GHz base clock speed that goes up to 3.7GHz max boost clock speed) and 3GB NVIDIA GTX 1050 Graphics, which is a good enough combination for you to run almost all the major editing apps on it smoothly.
