Ordinary laptops don’t meet all the required features for the photographers or photo editors. They don’t have higher resolution display as well as are bulky to carry with photography gears. So on selecting the laptops, high resolution with color accurate display is to be considered. The processing speed of the laptops should be higher. A traveler has to carry heavy photography gear with them so laptops should be light weight. Thousands of high resolution photos and editing software requires higher storage in the laptops. Most of photographer considers 8 GB RAM or even more in their laptops as multiple files are to be used at once and latest Adobe Photoshop and other editing software uses lots of memory.

It’s important to have a fast processor, such as an Intel Core i5 or AMD A10 for photo editing laptops. Storage capacity of 256GB or 512GB  solid state drive is mostly preferred and extra portable hard drive of 1,2,3 TB can be considered for photo storage. Multiple USB ports, built in card readers and DVD and Blue-ray drive for burning disc are also to be considered.
