My bro is looking for a laptops that could perform video editing well, I will list out some options, i had look into specs but i don't know if a U series intel really worth to buy:

Macbook Pro 13 inches (16 inches too expensive...)
i5 xxxx, intergrated gpu?
700 USD

Dell inspiron 7591
i7-9750H, GTX 1050 3gb
1000 USD

Dell inspiron 7590
i7-9750H, GTX 1650 4gb
1200 USD

Asus Zenbook
i7-8565U, GTX 1050 3gb
1350 USD

Dell XPS 7390 2-in-1
i7-1065G7, Iris Plus
1400 USD

is U series ok for video editing?
because my bro prefer a premium looking laptop if the specs could keep up.
my suggestion is dell inspiron 7590 with better cpu and gpu.
Tell me your opinion thanks😁

I wouldn't pick Dell XPS 7390 2-in-1 'cause memory and storage are onboard, hence not upgradable. Upgradability is clearly important, unless you need a business laptop for travel. Say, if you decide to edit 4k or 8k or higher quality videos in future, you will need to upgrade the storage and obviously RAM as well.

9750H performs better with 6 cores (and 12 threads) in video editing softwares. Yes, 1067G7 is newer, but scores a bit lower in benchmarks compared to 9750H.

GTX 1050 is getting old and it was a low-end GPU when introduced, so you should get the newer GTX 1650 and benefit from improved performance. It's worth the money.
GTX 1650 is just slightly weaker than the RX 5500M that 16" MacBooks have.

You shouldn't count on integrated GPUs even if it's an Iris Plus.

If you choose a Windows laptop, you will lose a perfect macOS, Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro by Apple.

Depends on what you're using. It would be stupid to buy a MacBook for video editing and not use Final Cut for example. Also look at used 15" Pros, a 2015 model with a 4000 series CPU would perform better and cost less than a Pro 13" new.

do you know how to check the macbook exact CPU? even the 13 inches, info provided is only how much base clock and turbo boost.
