Question Recommendations for my first video-editing laptop - help me choose?

Mar 24, 2023
I've built plenty of gaming desktops over the past 20 years but am currently trying to settle on a laptop that I intend to do some moderate video editing/content creation type work on it. I think I've narrowed it down to a selection between a 'gaming' laptop and a 'workstation' unit. They have similar, but not identical specs, and so I am looking for suggestions. The key differences are:

Gaming laptop:
  • Core i9-12900H
  • GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 8 GB (I assume better but not sure if it actually helps video editing??)
  • 16 GB DDR 5 Ram (plan on upgrading to max 64 after market)
  • 2560x1440, 400 nit screen
Workstation laptop:
  • Core i9-11950H vPro
  • Intel UHD integrated graphics (adequate for my purposes?)
  • 64 GB DDR4 (128 max capable)
  • 3840x2160 600 nit screen (seems way nicer)
Delivery time of the gaming laptop makes me hope that it will be comparable (or even superior), but if something about the workstation makes it worth the wait then so be it. Thanks for any insight.
