Reply To: Video Editing laptop
Take a look at Linux kdenlive. The editing part is slick and the rendering step renders up to 4K in HEVC. I run it as a vm and speed never bothers me as using a vm means the pc can be used for other things while rendering is taking place. The host is a first gen Ryzen with 16Gb of memory so it is probably pretty close to the specs of most middle ground laptops.
