    Which Asus laptop (choice of 2) for photo editing

    Can anyone help please. I am looking at a new laptop and like the sound of the Asus Vivobook Pro 15 but there are two similar ones with difference ports, graphics, and processors. Can anyone advise which would be better. I would use the USB ports for my internet via a USB Vodafone dongle, transferring photos from the camera to the laptop, and plugging in hard drives. Purchase would be in Egypt so limited choice of laptops.

    My camera is capable of 4k video.

    Here are the two specs.

    Just photo editing or any video editing too? You can probably get by with a much more modest spec than that. An RTX graphics card and suck a powerful processor is not really needed for photo editing IMO it’s not a problem having it it is just making the machine more expensive than it needs to be.

    Thank you. I would love to do more video editing in the future for the Birds of the Red Sea Project with Rotary but not experienced at it right now.

    What's the price difference? I think that's going to be the main differentiator between the two.

    I'm a bit out of touch on computer hardware atm, but it looks to me like performance will be similar.

    If the performance is similar - go for the one with the independent power port (DC-in)>

    The only rider to that is that the 'Thunderbolt port is the USB-C port also.

    So in my book it's connections to other kit which could be the real decider - will you need a USB-C connection on you laptop - AFAICS that is down to transfer speed.

    I have a new LapTop that only has USB-C connectors, it means I have to carry USB-C to USB-B adaptor leads with the LapTop all the time. Also I'm not sure of the life of the so-small connector.

    Thank you so much. That is really helpful and something I didn't consider.
