I am looking to buy one of these laptops today and I would like some advice on which would be better for video editing?

I am going to thailand travelling for 2 months next week and I intend to upload a Vlog on YouTube so I can remember my trip for years to come.

Problem is I don't know which laptop is better suited to the job.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I only intend to edit on Gopro studio to begin with as the software is free.

Option 1

ASUS VivoBook X556UA-DM898T 15.6 inch Full HD Notebook (Intel Core-i7 7500 Processor, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD Storage Drive, Windows 10) - Black

the 1st option is pretty good, but if you are doing like high resolution rendering, the process might slower because of the hard drive, but it has such large capacity. the 2nd option is a bit slower at rendering but only really slightly, the good thing that it has gpu, so if the editing software that you want to use support gpu acceleration it will help with smoother editing preview and some other things. ssd is a nice thing to have if you are rendering a high resolution video, it will help the process, but the main problem is that is a relatively small size storage, but if you are willing to get an external hard drive or get bigger ssd then it is up to you
