Laptop suggestion for video editing and photoshop


Jan 5, 2017
I want to buy a laptop for video editing and photoshop so I need the screen to be color accurate. I want it to at least have a ssd and 8 gb ram. My budget is around 600 usd. Can you please suggest me any laptop at that price point and with that specs? Thanks in advance

At $600 color accuracy will be poor, usually color accurate displays are used for premium laptops, think $1500+. The ryzen 4500u mentioned above is a very good chip, excellent for rendering. 8Gb is enough but many laptops will come with soldered ram limiting upgrades, example: 4 GB onboard + 4 GB x 1 , which means a 4gb dimm is soldered and one is upgradeable, limiting max ram capacity to 12gb(probably). For PS and renders, I'd really look for 16gb, like this, but 14" might be too small.
