hi all,

 

a couple of years ago I received really good input on this forum for a rig I needed to edit 4k video. well i'm back to dig into the advice mine once again.

 

i'm looking for a good workstation laptop (not a mac, please god no) that can do the same. I don't need it to be a finisher for projects, but something I can carry with me on set or to a location and use to import and do a basic edit, or to view the files I've shot. i'm the recent proud owner of a new Blackmagic design pocket cinema camera 4k, so I will be shooting braw files.

 

was looking at some options and I had contacted dell about a good 6 core machine with a radeon pro wx7130 gpu. I was also looking at their g series laptops and was wondering if da vinci resolve and premiere would run with a rtx2060, considering it's not on their compatibility lists. nvidia is also launching their studio line, but that's in the fall, I don't know if I can wait that long, and since i'm in india, I don't know if all models will be available with warranty.

 

any help would be much appreciated. 

 

thanks gents/ladies/others.

Budget? Are you buying in India? Any preference on weight and battery life?

I don't mind it being heavy. i'm looking for an athlete, not a super model (glares at a MacBook). this doesn't have thunderbolt though. I may need it if I have to do on set capture and edits. but the specs are insane. it's great for the price. even though it's not available in India, I can have it shipped here. only thing is the warranty. thanks for this though, it's definitely short listed.

weight no preference, but battery life should be moderate in case I don't have access to power. if could carry my desktop, I would. yes I am buying in india, so warranty etc and customer care should be there.

MSI GE63 9SF / 8SF

MSI GE73 8RF

 

2060/1660Ti:

Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-52

Lenovo Legion Y540 customize / 81SX00F1IN (don't update 28WW BIOS)

Azom Exigo (Clevo N960TD)

MSI GP75 9SE

Asus GL504GV

Asus G531GV / G531GU

 

Though personally I'll avoid Asus and MSI due to lower QC+QA than average
