2022 is looking to become the software race. We saw Apple push the hardware aspects in 2021, but I think the best laptops in 2022 are going to really need to benefit from increased utilization of the components that were already inside of these laptops.

    Would the Macbook Pro 13 work just as well as the 14 and 16?

  2. Awwhamburgerz on March 17, 2022 at 5:35 pm

    Really cool if you could do 1 for videogame streamers and people who want to edit gaming footage… unless this vid pretty much works for that as well?

  3. Adrian John on March 17, 2022 at 5:35 pm

    When are we getting a rundown on the Acer Swift X 14 (2022)?

  4. Allen Lim on March 17, 2022 at 5:38 pm

    Should include acer nitro 5 5800h+RTX3070 which is the best value for money.

  5. Hilal Yıldırım on March 17, 2022 at 5:40 pm

    While looking at the Premiere pro requirements, I saw that 32 gb ram is recommended, but I’m considering buying a computer with less ram capacity due to its price, is 32gb ram very important? Should I buy 32 gb ram and 4gb gpu or 16 gb ram and 6 gb gpu?

  6. Keys to Moto Adventures on March 17, 2022 at 5:46 pm

    Thanks for the great reviews. I ordered my Asus Zenbook Pro duo. Looking for to learning all about the hair pulling world of video editing. Lol.

  7. Feverish Chic on March 17, 2022 at 5:46 pm

    Wow …. love the background of your video!

  8. Susanne Mulholland on March 17, 2022 at 5:46 pm

    Thanks for the depth you’re going into. The info on the colour gamut was really useful

  9. Diana T on March 17, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    Hey Ben! Thanks so much for the detailed video. I’m curious as to why you didn’t benchmark the Dell XPS 15 in your Premiere Pro Export Test? You have it listed in your High End Laptops, but I couldn’t find its benchmark performance compared to others in the Premiere Pro category. Do you happen to know how it performed? I’m looking to purchase the Dell XPS17, i7-11800H, RTX™ 3060, 64GB, and I’m trying to get an idea of how it would perform as compared to the other laptops you had tested. Would you have any guidance/thoughts? I appreciate your help!

  10. Tommy Arrington on March 17, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    Very informative. Thank you. New Subscriber. 🍻

  11. upul gajanayaka on March 17, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    Super

  12. Merijn Yestra on March 17, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    Great video man, thanks! Only question I got is how important is de GPU gb amount? Is 8 gb enough, or do you need 16 gb for 4K video editing? Thanks!

  13. Anatoly Vasily on March 17, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    if you feel like you have no space on the table for this laptops, easy just send it to me! appreciate!:)

  14. Dark Night on March 17, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    Does any of these on the list cover 8k video editing?

  15. Shane C on March 17, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    I believe the Dell XPS 15 i7-11800H price is off. I am finding this laptop to be $2,500 to $3,000 range

  16. George Brandon on March 17, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    Sorry, but I didn’t really find this helpful. Too many options, not enough explanation on each choice, not much focus on colour accuracy (when it is something important for creators), only highlighting sRGB. I would reduce the options and explain why each option deserves to be on the list. All the best anyway

  17. Sam Gove on March 17, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    its not silicone dude….

  18. Harry W on March 17, 2022 at 5:51 pm

    Thanks for the video 🙂 might be worth mentioning that if you use Resolve at all you’ll be pretty constrained by vram with any windows laptop (other than those with the 3080ti which is out/coming but is unreasonably expensive imo.)

  19. Aladine Capitaine on March 17, 2022 at 5:53 pm

    Superbe vidéo

  20. zack mcmahon on March 17, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    Nice detailed video helped me out with what im leaning towards getting now

  21. Sarah Torres on March 17, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    This was very comprehensive and I liked that you went over what the technical spec terms means

  22. David Laplant on March 17, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    👌🏼

  23. Jan Vehemente on March 17, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Do you recommend Asus Rog Zephyrus S17 2021? 165Hz or 120Hz version? Thanks

  24. GolbezSuccessor on March 17, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    This helped. Before I watched this video terms like CPU, GPU, RAM, SDD, etc. were like reading hieroglyphics for me. Thanks for explaining the different parts of a laptop and the recommendations.

  25. Better Life Fishing on March 17, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    My favorite tech reviewer so far, always have high quality reviews with every bit of information I could need on the tech, amazing video!

  26. TYSON on March 17, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Is Ryzen is consistent in its performance?…How long It will last…Hope u will reply🇮🇳

  27. DasaniJay on March 17, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    What you think is the best budget laptop for Premire pro with no flaws or just a little bit

  28. Martin Flawless on March 17, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    What computer would you get if you have a a budget of 1500 to 2,000 dollars I’m trying to edit videos and record music

  29. Avesh Singh on March 17, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Hi, love from India. 🇮🇳
    Zephyrus g14 R7 5800HS +1650.
    Can it edit 4K 2-3 layers Full quality playback?

  30. PeliculasYaa on March 17, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Aero 15 or Legion 5 with the same price and the same specs (I7 with Rtx 3060) As a content creator what you choose??

  31. Hunter Wang on March 17, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Cool stuff!!

  32. APU105 on March 17, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    Excelente great guide thanks!

  33. Josh Mast on March 17, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Thanks for writing up lists of each of hardware item and what resolution it is capable of comfortably handling! That’s what I hit YouTube for, and you came thru for me. 🙂

  34. mup country on March 17, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    I love 1080, 4K is beautiful & all but 1080 is fine! Love how you explained the cpu/gpu/ram/memory/color specs. It really helped

  35. Yong Xu on March 17, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    1st of all, thank you so much for this awesome video, must took forever to make it. I am assuming that 12th Gen and Ryzen 6900hs/hx should have similar performance in Adobe premiere pro? I am not sure if should get Asus G14(amd)or Razer 14(intel). I’m 60% games, 40% adobe premiere pro. but I don’t mind with 10-15 frames drop/less in the game. However I do mind laggy playback in premiere pro. which one should I get in 2022? (if we ignore razer 14 heating problems), thank you, please help.

  36. Stefan Walcott on March 17, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    Great video, great teacher. Thanks Ben!

  37. Adventures of Mo & Trif on March 17, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Late into the Commentary, but, i would love to see a comparison between the HP ZBOOK STUDIO G7 or their latest most maxed out offering vs the other players in the market.

  38. Roman Adrian Morgan on March 17, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Getting back in the game of video editing. This has been a tremendous help. Thank You

  39. Steve Granado on March 17, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Thanks for this man. Super helpful!

  40. Bahram on March 17, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Very informative!

  41. WILLIAM HUNDLEY on March 17, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    Hi Ben! I need you to make my decision for me hahaha! I’m a video editor. I currently use a Lenovo Legion 5 with a Intel i7 with 6 cores. I need to utilize Sony’s Catalyst Browse software which requires a minimum 6GB GPU. I’d like a laptop that edits as well as my lenovo but with a bigger GPU. Any thoughts?

  42. Roberto Palmisano on March 17, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    Hi Ben,
    I have a quick question.
    What would you say is the better laptop for gopro 4k footage.
    Right now there is the asus tuf dash f15 and the msi katana gf66 on sale. Both for 1300$
    Both laptops are the same
    16gb ram
    512ssd
    GeForce rtx 3070
    The only thing that change in the processor
    Asus with intel i7-11370h
    Msi with intel i7-11800h
    Me personally, I like the asus more but can the i7-11370h keep up with the i7-11800h?
    I would use as software davinci resolve
    Would be nice to get an answer.

  43. Jonathan L on March 17, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Does an i5-12500h 12th gen Alder Lake CPU laptop start to fan if you play videos on YouTube really fast?

  44. Nilesh Bhagwan on March 17, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Hello ben..I go through your videos. I get lots of help.thanks ..I have a question that i am planning to buy legion 5 for graphics design.
    I have a option
    legion 5 165hz (2021) and legion 5 pro 165hz …
    May i know which color gamut is best ? Or is it same color gamut. Which should i buy?

  45. Kedescia on March 17, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Used your link to purchase the Acer Swift X yesterday, I’m looking to get back to creating consistent content as using my Samsung A10 to film and edit wasn’t practical for the type of content I am creating. I found your videos informative, keep up the great work.

  46. CarStomIt on March 17, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    so QQ I know that final cut pro is only Mac. and if I want to use adobe I have to get a windows PC. I am not sure yet what to choose.. what would you recommend because I want to buy a laptop that can do 4K video quickly so what are your thoughs.

  47. Tito Ramirez on March 17, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Perfect video. So much useful information under each laptop. I think this video definitely helped me make a decision for my next laptop

  48. aJJbs on March 17, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    Hi, would it be nice to have some kind of matrix like price : performance? I am getting lost with all this topical info. I guess that this info is important so you know what components are but I cannot see if the mid range computer is a better computer for my money than a more pro version.

  49. T.E.N on March 17, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    this was so insightful! thank you

  50. Zub Saf on March 17, 2022 at 6:31 pm
