Laptop for processing photos from parties and events

Choosing a laptop to process photos on which you can work efficiently and have a good screen at the same time is not such a simple matter.

Category:

In this post I will talk about laptops for photo processing, because many people still cannot handle it and think that it is enough to find the most powerful laptop with a nice matrix that will fit in our budget and the matter is settled. Unfortunately, it is not that simple, because the processors are similar in name only, nice screens are not always suitable for photo processing, and after buying a good monitor, the stairs begin.

Laptop for processing photos from events

Maybe you have this belief, or your “IT colleague” will tell you – ” Take this laptop with an i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, SSD disk and a powerful graphics card, because it is in a good price and has an IPS screen. ”That ends the topic of buying a photo editing laptop with my IT colleague. You will probably even be satisfied with how it works, but will it be the best choice?

In a way, it’s good for someone to advise you on a gaming laptop, as these are usually performance-driven, but gaming screens won’t always be a good choice for photos. We’ll come back to that later.

Components for a photo-processing laptop

The most important thing in the computer for processing photos is the processor, it is important that it is a model from the Intel Core family, at least 4-core H series (high-voltage). The processor model, i.e. Intel Core i5, i7, i9, which is only a marketing name, because we can have a low- performance i7 U series processor from a few years ago, which will be worse than the current i5 processors from the H series.

When it comes to AMD processors in laptops, I do not consider them a competition for Intel yet, when we are talking about laptops for photo processing, so for now I will omit them.

Computer processor

How to read the name of Intel processors?

There are a lot of processors and on store shelves you can find models (processors, not laptops) from a few years ago, so I will tell you how to read their markings. For example, let’s take a processor:

Intel® Core ™ i5-8265U (4 cores, 8 threads, clock speed 1.6 – 3.9 GHz, 15W TDP, 6MB Catche)

Core ™ – family of processors (Celeron, Pentium, Core, Xeon)
i5 – product line
8 – in the name of this processor it means 8th generation. In 2020, we already have the 10th generation, so the name could look like this – i5-10 265U
265 – indicates the processor performance segment. The higher the value the better.

Suffix will tell you the truth

U – the so-called suffix, stands for CPU version and says a lot about performance and application. U processors are medium-performance models with a focus on energy efficiency.

Y – ultra-energy-efficient processors with TDP 5-12W for tablets and small 2-in-1 devices

U – low voltage processors with a TDP of 15-28W used in most 13-17 “laptops

G1 / G4 / G7 – U version, but with stronger integrated graphics. The G7 has Intel Iris Pro

H – high-voltage 45W TDP processors in high-performance notebooks, workstations and gaming computers

HK – this is an H with the possibility of overclocking

Summarizing the processors

For processing, an i5 or i7 processor from the U series should be enough for us, which from the 8th generation are 4-core, but I would recommend looking for the i5 and i7 models in the H version in the future, which will be 4 or 6-core and have a higher clock speed in Ghz.

In photo processing, at the moment we only need 4 to 8 cores – but the most important thing is their timing. In Intel processors we have Turbo Boost technology, which automatically increases the processor clock, which in the latest laptops even reaches 5Ghz per core.

TDP – is the processor’s energy consumption, expressed in watts. Y processors have a low power consumption of even 5-8W to work long on the battery and have thin housings without fans. The U series has approx. 15-25W and is most often found in standard laptops that are lined with store shelves. H -series processors need 45W and need better cooling, which is why they are installed in laptops 15 ”and larger. In the case of computers for players and professionals that have an additional dedicated graphics card that can download, for example, 90W, they can work shorter on the battery and be louder, because they will have two fans – separately for the processor and graphics.

How much RAM for photos?

A laptop for photo processing should have at least 16GB of RAM , but if we do not have the possibility of expansion, I would personally choose 32GB of RAM. 64GB won’t make much difference to us if we don’t edit video.

There is also the question of the system. For me, 16GB on Mac works much better than 16GB on Windows, which was able to close my project in Photoshop to make some space. Now I would choose a computer with 32GB of memory.

Laptop RAM

If we buy a laptop with a smaller amount of RAM and want to expand it later, it is worth checking how many free memory banks we have, or worse, whether they are not soldered to the motherboard. It is best if we have 2 or more free spaces, because then we have a chance to use multi-channel memory. Let’s also choose the memory with the highest MHz clock speed that a given laptop supports and the lowest CL latency.

HyperX Impact memory is very popular in laptops and if we want to buy a 16GB cube clocked at 2666 MHz CL 15 and the laptop already has an 8 GB Kingston cube clocked at 2400 Mhz and CL 17, our HyperX will have to slow down to 2400. In this case, it’s best to sell the 2400 MHz memory and buy, for example, the HyperX 32GB (2x16GB) 2666MHz CL15 Impact package.

Laptop hard drive

In the case of photo processing , I can no longer imagine buying a laptop with a HDD. Their only advantage is the price and they may be easier to retrieve data from them, but every normal photographer does a backup?

For comfortable work, any SSD disk should be enough, min. 256GB and some external drive, or a server to download finished projects. Of course, the more the better, because RAW files from larger matrices take up more and more space, and the disks are cheaper, so why bother.

Computer hard drive

I work on 256GB SSD NVMe myself, but on the laptop I only have software, documents and the Lightroom catalog. Most of the photos in RAW format are downloaded to the NAS server immediately, and in Lightroom I only create Smart Previews . Now I would go for 512GB or 1TB so that I wouldn’t take an external drive with large field projects.

In laptops you will find 2.5 ″ SATA SSDs either on the M2 connector, which pulls up to 550MB / s read / write, or PCIe NVMe SSDs on the M2 connector, which can pull out 3000-3500MB / s depending on the version of the PCIe interface.

Video card in a laptop for photos

Until now, the graphics card for photo manipulation did not matter much, and sometimes even caused problems, but now more and more photo applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom are starting to take advantage of its capabilities. If you use a lot of filters in PS, or plan to buy one or more 4K monitors, it is also worth taking an interest in an additional graphics card, because the integrated graphics card can handle such resolutions for some time, unfortunately it will simply be more loaded. A simple model, even 2GB from the GeForce MX series, is enough here.

Graphics Card

There is no need to overpay for Quadro cards for photo processing, because they are not designed for it, but we will often meet them in workstations for professionals. They give the most benefits in 3D machining and CAD programs. If you want to have a little more power or sometimes play a game or edit movies, choose something from the GTX or RTX series.

Laptop screen for photo manipulation

Many people do not realize that, contrary to what laptop manufacturers say about their screens, in 2020 no matrix in a laptop is suitable for photo processing in the Adobe RGB space and is not hardware calibrated. If we buy a laptop, we will get sRGB color space at most.

Photographer's workplace

If we want to work only on a laptop and we only need sRGB space, there is a chance to find a computer that will cover this space in 99-100%.

In advertising materials promoting laptops, we can sometimes find information about 100, 150 or even 250% sRGB, but what the manufacturer says is the gamut width / size in relation to sRGB.

The screen gamut should cover the sRGB space in 100% if we want to process photos for the network and print them in a photolab. In practice, it turns out that the monitor displays a gamut of 200% sRGB, but not where it needs to be. Such a monitor may seem better, because some colors will be more vivid and brighter, which many people fall for because it masks the deficiencies in other colors.

srgb in laptops

Matrix calibration in a laptop?

We do not have hardware calibration in laptops.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to completely shift the gamut, which is somewhere nearby (as in the picture above), in a laptop it can only be cut to sRGB in software calibration, thanks to which we finally get less than 100% coverage and in some cases problems in the transitions between colors and jagged gradients.

Adobe RGB in a laptop?

Here it is an even bigger fairy tale of the producers, because even with a 99% Adobe RGB space in a laptop, we get 60-85% by cutting the mismatched gamut. Then it is better to work on sRGB or buy an external wide-gamut monitor, which we can additionally calibrate by hardware. There are simply no wide-gamut laptops yet, because the cost of such a laptop would be abstract considering that the monitors themselves cost from 5,000,000. upwards. Not to mention what the monitor flap looks like, with a matrix illuminated from the back to maintain evenness (OLED may bring some hope here).

The matrix in the flap is still a “flap”

Delta E

When we are with colors, the Delta E (ΔE) parameter is also important, which approximately proves the color deviation from the pattern. The smaller the better. A good screen should be around 1-2. This is where calibration often helps (if there is anything to calibrate).

  • 0.0 -1.0 – imperceptible (often measurement error)
  • 1.0 – 2.0 – people with high sensitivity to colors can see (women, artists, etc.)
  • 2.0 – 3.0 – noticeable color difference
  • 3.0 – 6.0 – acceptable in the printing production process
  • 6.0 – >> – large color difference acceptable in special cases

Backlight

In the case of laptops, there is nothing to choose from, because we either have OLED where each pixel shines separately, or LCD panels backlit with LEDs. Technically, it would be difficult to add a backlight on the back of the matrix, as it happens in graphic monitors, because laptops would start to look like 10 years ago again, and OLED technology in laptops is only just appearing in high-end devices.

The problem with LCD panels is certainly also caused by the packing of matrices in laptops into tight and flaccid flaps – squeeze it slightly and see how the backlight begins to spill.

It is worth paying attention to the difference in the backlight, because in laptops it can be up to 20% when we measure the brightness in the center at its edges, which is unacceptable when working with an image. In a poor-quality display, we can also see a difference in the white point by up to several hundred Kelvin.

A good monitor should not exceed 5% difference in backlight and 100 Kelvin for the white point, which is not so easy. In this matter, OLEDs win on laptops – even 4-7%, while in LCD a good result is 10%.

Playing Games, video processing and 4K screens while working with a laptop

In laptops, the role of the graphics card is taken over by the processor. In Intel processors we find Intel HD graphics, Iris and the most efficient Iris Pro. In a laptop to process photos, we did not need an additional graphics card to a certain point, but recently this has changed and programs such as Photoshop and Lightroom are starting to use external graphics to an increasing extent. However, this is not as much of a difference as when using video rendering programs or playing games, where an additional graphics card gives a noticeable increase in performance, but it is worth thinking about.

Or maybe a monitor?

If we want to connect UHD and 4K monitors to the laptop and work with colors, then we also need to think about an additional graphics card and Display Port or Thunderbolt 3 connector that includes DP. At the same time, it does not have to be a professional Quadro card (it is a pity to overpay) or a gaming GTX. For image processing, we need a 2-4GB GeForce MX series card.

If we want a laptop with HDMI, it is worth digging out in its specification whether it is HDMI 2.0 , because despite the fact that we will have a good card, the laptop can have HDMI 1.4, which will only give us 30Hz at 4K.

In conclusion about the screens

What screen is worth looking for?

  • IPS or OLED panel
  • > 99% sRGB coverage
  • Delta E> 2
  • Backlight uniformity> 90%
Interesting fact: If your eyes get tired, it is worth checking if the matrix in your laptop has a brightness level regulated with PWM ( Pulse-width modulation ), i.e. the voltage modulation of the matrix's backlight. The backlight begins to flash at specific intervals, which gives the impression that the screen is less bright. Ideally there should be no modulation or its frequency is very high (above 2000 Hz) then we should not feel its effects unless we are really sensitive. A similar phenomenon may occur in light bulbs, LED strips, etc. The easiest way to check PWM is by recording the screen or lighting in slow motion.

If you want to use external screens:

  • The best connector is Thunderbolt 3, DisplayPort or at least HDMI 2.0
  • Min. 2GB graphics card for 4K screens so as not to tire the processor

Connectors in a laptop for photo processing

In a good laptop, the question of whether we have USB 2.0 or 3.0 / 3.1 is not a problem, because it usually has at least one or all of them. What would I be paying attention to?

Connectors in a laptop

Thunderbolt 3 – Usually confused with USB-C because of its shape, but you can work wonders with this one plug. Hated and underestimated by many, she can surprise you. Unlike USB 3.0, which has 5Gb / s and 3.1 gen 2, which reaches 10Gb / s, Thunderbolt 3 reaches 40 Gb / s, and also includes a DisplayPort connector, PCIe bus, provides power and can operate in series ( we will connect several devices one after the other). Who needs it for?

  • DisplayPort will easily allow us to connect 2 4K wide-screen monitors, or one 5K, and by the way, charge the computer using the same cable (in selected monitors).
  • PCIe – allows us to connect an eGPU , i.e. an external graphics card. Having a small 13 ″ computer with Thunderbolt 3, we can connect, for example, GeForce RTX 2080, which will be packed in a special housing.

    We will also be able to connect external PCIe SSDs, which will work as well as those in a laptop, because PCIe gives us a direct connection to the processor and all other components.
  • There is no need to rotate the tip as in USB A.
  • And if we lack ports, we can connect very nice docking stations and hubs there.
Thunderbolt 3 USB-C

HDMI – it is worth making sure if there is version 2.0, because with 4K we will get 60Hz and not 30.

Wi-Fi – it may not be a connector, but the standard should be an AC card (Wi-Fi 5), and recently there are computers in the AX standard (Wi-Fi 6), which should be given by 1-1.5 Gb / s for good routers for 10 Gb / s bandwidth, which can free us a little LAN cables, if we use high-speed Internet or NAS servers. But the more important thing will be that it will support even more devices without dropping the transmission speed.

Windows or Mac for photo manipulation

When it comes to these systems, we usually hear the opinion that Macs are too expensive for their specifications, but that’s not entirely true. If we want to buy a laptop of a similar class as the MacBook Pro 16, such as Dell XPS 15 , HP ZBook , Lenovo ThinkPad , Surface Book 2 , we will also pay about 10,000. zlotys.

Adobe Creative Cloud software or the Office suite and a lot of other programs are here and here, and they work very similarly on both systems. If something is not on one platform, we will probably find an alternative on the other. There is also no such thing as having to pay for everything on a Mac, because either there are free applications, or we can pay for something good, just like on Windows. There is no winner here.

If you’re serious about working with color, you should think about a Mac. The Windows system so far cannot manage the color well and as long as we work on sRGB screens, the problem is not visible, but with Adobe RGB it will be problematic.

Color management by the system – having a wide-gamut monitor, programs such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Bridge or a web browser themselves can manage the color under Windows, but going to the system windows and the desktop will be dazzled by too bright colors, over which the system has no control. This problem is not present on Mac computers.

Moving program windows – in addition, when working on Windows with several screens, after opening the program, the system loads the monitor profile on which the application was launched and when you move the program to another monitor, its profile is not loaded. The only solution is to reopen the application on the monitor on which you want to work with the application.

Scaling – if we want to use UHD and 4K screens on Windows, we may have a problem with scaling program windows. This is problematic with small diagonals, but at 27-32 ″ you can live with it. Here, too, Mac OS works better.

Selected laptops for photo processing

If I had to replace my old MacBook Pro 15 ″ from 2015 with new hardware now, for the sake of the system, I would choose the new MacBook Pro 16 ″ again, which got very good specifications and long-awaited fixes, including a new keyboard, but I would choose the i9 version 1TB and expanded to 32GB of memory, but the price is approx. PLN 14,000 is still a bit scary.

MacBook Pro 16 for photo manipulation

A good alternative is also a refreshed Mac Mini 2020 with an i7 processor and a 512GB SSD drive , which can be expanded RAM and connect an external SSD for Thunderbolt 3 , or my own or ready-made hackintosh , and I will consider this option if the MacBook will be running and I will need more power .

Mac mini 2020

What if it’s not Mac?

Laptops up to 3000,000 are always some compromises, so I will not write about them here. It’s better to start with a stationary machine, or add to the equipment that will have a more powerful H-marked processor, a better matrix and a DP or HDMI 2.0 connector.

Laptop for photo processing up to 4,000,000

HP Pavilion Gaming 15-dk0021nw

Inexpensive laptop for photo manipulation

You will get the laptop for approx. PLN 3500 without Windows 10 , but you can buy it for about PLN 500 or sometimes get a good key for approx. PLN 150 on Kinguin.net .

It’s a basic gaming laptop, so we have good components and good cooling. Although it is a gaming computer, the IPS matrix has a standard 60Hz, which does not matter in photography, but it has very good colors for a laptop at this price. In the future, we can connect an external monitor to it thanks to HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort .

At this price, we only have 8GB of RAM, but we can add a second chip, or change the whole thing to HYPERX Impact 32GB 2666MHz RAM memory for about 700 PLN.

On board we only have 256 GB SSD on the M2 connector, but inside there should be a SATA connector to which you can insert a HDD or, for example, SAMSUNG 860 EVO 1TB SSD Disk for approx. 700 PLN or SAMSUNG 860 EVO 500GB SSD for 400 PLN.

  • Intel Core i5-9300H , 4 cores / 8 threads, clock speed 2.4 – 4.1 GHz
  • 8GB RAM 2666MHz DDR4 , but we have one more free slot to add another 8GB RAM
  • M.2 SSD PCIe 256 GB
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4 GB graphics
  • HDMI 2.0 , USB-C 3.2 with support for DisplayPort and USB A 3.1, Gigabit Ethernet
  • Matte Full HD IPS 60Hz matrix giving approx. 95% sRGB , delta E at the level of 1.3 (after calibration, approx . 1.1!), With a brightness of 300 nits and backlight uniformity of approx. 86%
  • Wi-Fi Intel Wireless-AC 9560 802.11b / g / n / ac (2 × 2) and Bluetooth® 5 module, which gives approx. 1Gb / s on Wi-Fi

Laptop for photo processing up to 6,500,000

I add this category some time ago after the release of the MacBook Air and Pro with the M1 processor, which really messed up the market. I myself am waiting for the appearance of the 16-inch version of the MacBook Pro with the next generation of these processors, but now I will add the 13-inch version to this list.

MacBook Pro M1

I chose the MacBook version with the M1 processor in the Pro version because of the cooling, which is still difficult to fully use. Many people praise its capabilities even in video rendering. In the case of MacBooks with M1 processors, the RAM is integrated into the chip and we have to select it at the beginning. Many people praise the 8GB version and I recommend it here, but in the version with a 512GB SSD disk. If you have an additional PLN 2,000, you can consider the 16GB RAM version.

The performance of the M1 processor, depending on the task and program, reaches the performance of i7 or even i9 mounted in the MacBook Pro 16, which gives food for thought, since the computer is smaller, lighter, holds better on the battery and heats up less. It is difficult to start even windmills in ordinary work. The Air version of the M1 is even passively cooled!

MacBook Pro M1 for photo editing from events
  • 8 core CPU + 16 core Neural Engine CPU
  • 8 GB RAM LPDDR4X-4266
  • Apple SSD AP0512, 512 GB
  • Graphics 8 core GPU
  • 2x Thunderbolt 3
  • 13.3 ” 16:10 , Retina (2560 x 1600), 60 Hz, 500 nits glossy matrix that displays 100% sRGB and 88.3% Adobe RGB and delta E is only 1.3.

HP Omen 17-cb0043nw

HP omen 17 laptop for photos

A large laptop aimed at gamers, but it will also work well in photo processing and even video editing due to a very efficient graphics card. Unlike Pavlion, it is a 17.3 ″ matrix and a slightly more interesting housing with an aluminum palmrest, more efficient cooling system and an even better matrix. Additionally, it is equipped with two B&O speakers .

On board we already have a 512 GB SSD on the M2 PCIe connector and a free SATA connector to which you can insert a HDD or a SAMSUNG 860 EVO 1TB SSD or SAMSUNG 860 EVO 500GB SSD as additional data space.

The laptop weighs 3.21 kg, and has a large 220W power supply (330W in the RTX 2080 version), but I chose it because of the screen quality and performance.

For very mobile people, I would recommend it for sure Surface Book 2 13.5 i7-8650U / 8GB / SSD256GB / GTX1050 / Win10 Pro , which has worse parameters, but is much lighter because the whole is 1.5 kg, but we can disconnect the entire keyboard from it, which includes an additional battery and card graphics, it also has an amazing bright screen (96% sRGB, 400 nit), with stylus support. 
  • Intel Core i7-9750H , 6 cores / 12 threads, clock speed 2.6 – 4.5 GHz

As I mentioned, I would personally choose the new MacBook Pro 16 so as not to have problems with color calibration and external monitors. If this does not bother us or we want to work, we will find some really nice laptops that may have even better specifications and, at the same time, similar weight and dimensions. The HP ZBook 15 G6 Mobile Workstation weighs only 1.6 kg and the DELL XPS 15 7590 approx. 2kg, but has an 8500mAh battery .

HP ZBook Studio G7 with DreamColor screen

In 2020, one of the best workstations for the creative industry appeared on the market. In addition to the great specification that I propose here, you can also look for versions with Intel Core i7 or with Intel Xeon processors, but that’s a matter of your preferences and budget. The specification presented below is a great competitor for the 16 inch MacBook Pro, especially for people who are going to render video.

HP DreamColor 4K display

The first thing that interests us the most will be DreamColor screen in 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) in IPS technology offering HDR400, 100% DCI-P3, 100% sRGB and 77% AdobeRGB and its ΔE is 1.4 a after calibration only ΔE 0.5! The screen can be very bright (over 600 nits) and still can keep it backlight uniformity at the level of 92% , which places it at the forefront of laptops and workstations.

HP Vaporforce Thermals

An interesting solution is also the HP Vaporforce Thermals cooling that can be found only in top-shelf equipment. So far, it has been used in the aviation industry or server solutions with very high performance. How does it work? Instead of solid copper plates in combination with heap pipes, a material is used inside which is a very low pressure chamber, where the evaporating water transfers heat to the cool part which then transfers the heat through the heat pipe to the heat sinks with the fan. It is a very efficient solution, thanks to which the computer reaches a temperature of about 50 degrees under load, which is a very good result with this specification.

In addition, the equipment is equipped with AI technology that automatically selects the voltage and manages the performance of components so that in tasks that require more work for the processor or graphics card, it allocates resources.

HP ZBook Studio G7 DreamColor 4K

Most of all, workstations are reliable equipment. Z Book Studio G7 is equipment with a 3-year warranty made of aluminum and meets the MIL-STD 810H standards. By the way, it includes corporate-class security, which is missing in the equipment on the shelves of supermarkets, i.e. Sure Start BIOS security which, upon detection of changes, restores the safe copy.

  • InCore i9-10885H , 8 cores / 16 threads, clock speed 2.4 – 5.3 GHz
  • 32 GB (2 × 16 GB) RAM 2666MHz DDR4 in dual chanel technology (on motherboard)
  • M.2 SSD PCIe 1TB NVMe
  • NVIDIA Quadro T2000 4GB Graphics
  • 2x Thunderbolt 3 , HDMI 2.0, USB 3.1
  • 15 ″ Matte 4K IPS matrix giving 100% sRGB , delta E at the level of 1.4 (after calibration, about 0.5 !), With a brightness of 600 nits and a backlight uniformity of about 92% . (there are 3 other versions of screens that are not from the DreamColor series so it’s worth paying attention to that)
  • Wi-Fi Wi-Fi 6 AX 200 (2×2) and Bluetooth® module 5
  • Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
