My laptop options


Mar 17, 2017
Hi, I'm looking for a laptop to take travelling with me (so lightweight/thin is a bonus). I will be using it to edit video in Adobe Premiere Pro and occasionally After Effects, as well as general web browsing. Gaming is not a concern. I have a budget of no more than £900. I have done ALOT of reading around, and these are a few options I've found. All of them have their flaws, but that's to be expected at my price-range.
