    "My photographer friends have been using MacBook Pro whenever they edit photos. Before I was only using a Dell laptop but i changed into a MacBook Pro. I bought the latest MacBook Pro with 15 inch retina display that has a sharp and vibrant color so i can see the real color of my photographes especially when i edit RAW photos. "

    "The best thing about the Microsoft Surface Book 2 is that it is a 2-in-1 laptop which means aside from being a laptop you can also use it as a tablet. And i have read too that it has the most accurate screen of any Windows laptop. And i agree with that after i bought this since i really checked out physical stores of laptops. "

    "If you are a serious photographer like me who is looking for the best laptops for photo editing then you might as well check out the Dell XPS 15. I use this laptop for photo editing because it has sRGB color gamut and reaches a blinding 447 nits of brightness. Aside from that ut has enough power to run photo editing software even if you don't plug it."

    "If you are looking for a laptop which you can bring anywhere, in short, a portable laptop that can be used for photo editing then the HP Spectre x360 is for you. It is really very portable and has a nifty tablet conversion. But the downside though is that you'll have a small screen for Photoshop or other software whenver you edit photos. "

    "TBH i was really in doubt when a friend of mine recommended this to me to buy even though he claimed that it is one of the best laptops of 2019. Well i was having second thoughts because Huawei is really known for smartphones not laptops. But when i read reviews for this i found so many positive reviews i got sold to buy this instead. SO yeah i highly suggest that this is indeed one of the best laptops for photo editing. "

    "Because i am an travel photographer i need a laptop which is a lightweight so i purchase this one. One because it is extremely light and slim and even has a good screen. I can almost compare it to a MacBook Pro but then MacBook Pro will still be the best. If you are just after the weight then get this then"
