Top 7 Laptops for Creatives

Irrespective of the industry, there are thousands of digital graphics artists, video-editors and UX & 3D designers working in Bangladesh right now. Working with graphics is a tedious endeavour and requires a special breed of machine. These machines can handle the demanding load of resource-hogging software and deliver great output without taking the toll. And if you want to work on this software on the go- then you would be in need of a highly spec'd laptop. We did some research and found these laptops to be the best in the market for your everyday graphics need:

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro

Price: Tk. 85,000/-

Why buy:  Prompted by the success of its initial offering, gadget manufacturer Xiaomi has brought out another laptop- the Notebook Pro. Drawing inspiration directly, from Apple, the Notebook Pro has top of the line hardware in an unbeatable price-tag. The laptop isn't as quiet as it is advertised but that doesn't necessarily mean it's very loud. The minimalist design and extreme battery life is another reason to fall in love with this laptop. No logo on the front and sleek metal finish- makes it a really good device if you are into the postmodern minimalist look.  If you are in need of a MacBook running on Windows then this is the laptop to go with.

Price: Tk. 1,75,000/-

Why buy: Another convertible on our list. Lenovo Yoga 910 is a highly versatile machine that can process graphics and render video at a superb rate- thanks to the brilliant hardware it comes with. We don't love the colours it comes in but not everyone might have issues with it. 



HP Omen ce031tx

HP Omen ce031tx

Price: Tk. 1,25,000/-

Why buy: HP Omen is a mostly marketed as a top of the line gaming device similar to ASUS's ROG line. Meaning, it has great hardware and a superb display – ideal for UX design and 3D rendering. Everyone is going to love the metallic exterior with red veins popping out on the front of the laptop.



apple macbook pro

Apple Macbook Pro

Price: Tk. 2,73,000/- (15 inch with touchbar)

Why buy: Backlit 4K retina display and silky smooth user experience have made Apple the 'go-to' brand for most studios globally. The 2880X1800 display offers an extremely detailed view with real contrast. The viewing angles are also great for collaborative work. The form factor of the device makes it handy to carry extensively. The highend version of the MacBook Pro comes with 2.9 GHz processor and up to 32GB of RAM. Add the Radeon Pro 560 GPU and you are good to go. Benchmarking tools like Geekbench 4.1 shows that the MacBook Pro outperforms most of the conventional laptops used for graphical work. 



Dell XPS 15

Dell XPS 15

Price: Starting from Tk. 1,45,000/-

Why buy: The GTX 1050 GPU of this laptop is great for gaming, media editing, rendering your everyday graphics needs. The laptop comes with a clamshell design which most people will surely like. The battery life of the device is superb and can be used for 6 to 7 hours straight on full-load.



microsoft surface book

Microsoft Surface Book

Price: Tk. 1,70,000/-

Why buy:  This futuristic looking convertible is geared for all things graphics. In terms of hardware, you get a solid performance from the Nvidia GPU. We loved the accessories of the Surface Book. The battery life and the screen as per the industry standard so it isn't bad at all. It lacks some very useful updates as of now but Microsoft has promised they will keep on rolling out updates. Except for the 6th gen. Intel processor, we have nothing to complete about in this device to be honest. Definitely worth considering!



asus rog zephyrus gx501

ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501

Price: Tk. 3,10,000/-

Why buy: One of the most powerful hardware packed in a small handy device- that's how one can describe the ASUS ROG Zephyrus. The incredible hardware doesn't, however, last much longer thanks to the inadequate battery. All in all a great device if you don't mind the extra weight and charging cords.
