What laptop should you use for video editing with DaVinci Resolve? These are my results from running the Puget Systems DaVinci Resolve benchmark on a number of different laptops with Resolve versions 18, 17 and 16. I’ve used the 4K test in all cases. A higher score is better, so the higher performing laptops are closer to the top of the graph below. Generally, higher scores are accompanied by higher tier graphics.
Hover over a bar to display the score.
DaVinci Resolve 18.1.4

Of course you’ll also want a good screen for this workload! I’ve got colour gamut and brightness results covered here.
Huge shout out to Puget Systems for providing the DaVinci Resolve benchmark, check them out here.
