Best laptop to edit photos

  Giantruben 14:20 12 Nov 2016

Hi, i am a photographer and my laptop just got broken.

I am looking for a good laptop to edit photos, i need a laptop with good screen colour. I saw Macbook Pro but i am looking for cheaper options.

I use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom to edit my photos.

I would consider a separate monitor for use at home, as well as a Windows !0 laptop. Hopefully hssutton will give an input.

I suspect you need one with a good IPS screen. You should go into a few shops and ask to be able to test the screens on several makes. That means being allowed to adjust them since the shops seldom have the set up correctly with gamma correction etc. They usually turn the contrast and colour saturation up to the maximum. Also look at the reviews since you want one that covers the highest proportion of the colour gamut.
