Photographers and other content creators require a powerful laptop. Powerful in the sense that its graphics must be up to the task. So, laptops with an entry-level graphics card are not something that they will probably opt for. Moreover, they work a lot with the color of their content. This means that having a screen with good color accuracy is a must for them. Furthermore, slim laptops that offer a great battery life is another major requirement. Thus, keeping in mind the aforementioned things, we have prepared a list of the best laptops currently available in Nepal for photographers, video editors, and other content creators. You can check out the list down below and opt for the one that suits you the best!

|MSI Prestige 15||
|Razer Blade 15||

MSI Prestige 15
The MSI Prestige series is mainly intended for students, programmers, corporate-level employees, and such. Laptops under the Prestige title are lightweight and can be perfect starter laptops. With the MSI Prestige 15, the company has tried its level best to offer a perfect laptop for photographers, video editors, and other content creators. It is equipped with 10th Gen Intel Core i7 U-processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics.
Its design is super elegant and I believe it can even give the MacBook Pro 13 a run for its money. Moreover, it is sleek and weighs just around 3.6 pounds. Thus, this lightweight laptop would be suitable for those who have to do most of the tasks on the go. Furthermore, its hinges allow the laptop to do a 180-degree turn.
There’s a 4K UHD option available for the MSI Prestige 15 in Nepal and I would suggest the more serious content creators go for that one. The quality of the display will leave you drooling as the colors on the videos come out pretty vibrant. Furthermore, it covers 159% of the sRGB color gamut which is higher than the average and it offers a respectable 319 nits display.
However, audio is not its strongest feature. You might find that the sound lacks some quality in it and though it is not that bad, audio creators might want to look elsewhere. With the 10th Gen Intel 6 core processor, you can pretty much do most tasks without any hindrance. and the Nvidia graphics will help you do graphic-intensive tasks along with casual gaming. Battery life on the MSI Prestige 15 is also excellent, thanks to its big 82Whr battery and an energy efficient U-processor.

Razer Blade 15
Razer Blade 15 is synonymous with being one of the best gaming laptops. And its configuration is such that it can be used as a great content creation device too. This device is also the first one in the Blade 15 series to be equipped with 20-series Nvidia GeForce GPU.
The Razer Blade 15 that is currently available in Nepal is equipped with RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics, 512GB RAM, 8th Gen Intel Processor and 16GB of RAM. Its display is good but it is not something that will woo many content creators. It has an FHD display with a 144Hz refresh rate and covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. This color accuracy is not so great, especially when compared with the other devices on this list such as the XPS 15 and MacBook Pro. However, it does have a capable graphics card in the form of the RTX 2070 Max-Q. It is a powerful GPU but people looking for a color-accurate display have to look elsewhere.
As the device sports an RTX graphics card, it supports DLSS. Thus, you’ll behave a good gaming experience on this one. However, the device runs hot while doing extensive tasks and for the price that this is available, I guess there is a much better alternative available.

MSI Creator 15M
MSI Creator 15M, as the name implies, it is targeted towards the content creators – your video editors, graphic designers, content producers, etc. It has a subtle design choice like no RGB-lit keyboard. Most importantly it comes with pretty powerful hardware underneath. Currently, there are two variants of the MSI Creator 15M available in Nepal. One is equipped with Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 whereas the other one comes with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q. However, they both come with the 10th Gen Intel processor. Because there’s only a difference of 10K between the variants, more serious creators should opt for the more powerful one with the RTX 2060.
The device offers a 15.6-inch FHD display with a 144Hz refresh rate. Moreover, it covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. Given, it is not the most color accurate device on this list, but it can get the job done. It has capable internals that such as the 10th Gen Intel processor with which you’ll find yourself breezing through the tasks. Furthermore, the RTX graphics comes with ray-tracing among its other features. However, battery life isn’t great on this one.

Asus ZenBook Pro Duo
Asus is the master of dual-screen laptops, however, with what the ZenBook Pro Duo brings to the table, it seems Asus has outdone itself. The device offers a 4K OLED touch screen and an additional 4K secondary touch screen right above the keyboards. And with the configuration that it comes with, creators can be certain that their productivity will increase while working on this laptop.
Under the hood, the device comes with a 9th Gen Intel Core i9 processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. However, buyers can also opt for a less expensive i7 CPU configuration. No matter the choice of CPU, this device can get the job done. Furthermore, it has a fast SSD storage too. The main 4K panel with 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution is a touch panel that offers an immersive display with sharp details. Its primary display covers 203.4% of the sRGB color gamut and the second one covers 107.8%. So, good color accuracy in both the screens.
The pull factor of this laptop is the amazing dual-screen that it offers. Users can operate simultaneously on two screens and that makes multitasking a lot easier. However, this device does have its drawbacks. The device is heavy and that might be a buzzkill for regular travelers. Furthermore, it has a short battery life too.
Asus ZenBook Pro Duo Specifications
|Display||15.6-inch OLED UHD (3840 x 2160), 14-inch UHD (3840 x 2160) touch display|
|CPU||Intel Core i9-9980HK or Intel Core i7- 9750H|

MacBook Pro 2019 (16-inch)
MacBooks have always been a trustable machine. It does a lot of things without breaking a sweat. The same could be said about the MacBook Pro 16-inch which offers a great performance for its users. This is especially useful for photographers who require a great deal from their laptops while editing RAW images.
The MacBook Pro 2019 also has a share of its advantages over Windows-powered laptops. There are lots of shortcuts and tricks available on the applications it runs, which are absent on the latter laptops. The base model of the MacBook Pro 2019 is equipped with the Core i7 CPU. However, buyers can opt to configure it with Core i9, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M graphics, up to 2TB SSD and 32GB of RAM.
Improvements have been made in the keyboard department as it features a Magic Keyboard which is a joy to use. But most important for content creators is the display and this device offers a very good one. Though it is not a 4K screen, the offered resolution is of 3072 x 1920 pixels.
Furthermore, the screen has very thin bezels that spell for an immersive display. Also, the screen covers 113.9% of the sRGB color gamut. That is quite impressive, however, the Dell XPS 15 offers a much better 239% coverage. The design as usual with the MacBooks is very sleek and looks ultra-professional. Moreover, the 16-inch MacBook Pro offers a 6-speaker sound system with force-canceling woofers. The amazing sound quality will certainly be appreciated by video editors.
Still, complaints can be made about the display of the device as it is not 4K. And professionals would certainly prefer a 4K display. However, by cutting corners on the screen, they have bettered the battery life. So, it depends upon the buyer where their priority lies.

Dell XPS 15 7590
This year’s Dell XPS 15 is known for offering premium and top-quality features in a portable body, just like its predecessors. And with the 9th generation processors installed, you can certainly expect more with this device.
As of now, only two variants of the device are available in Nepal: i7 non-touch and i7-touch. The first one comes with a 15.6-inch FHD Infinity Edge IPS panel packing in a total of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It comes with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. The latter flaunts a 15.6-inch 4K UHD Infinity Edge Touch panel with 3840 x 2160 pixels. It comes with 16GB of RAM paired with 512GB SSD storage.
The Dell XPS 15 boasts an OLED panel that produces live and rich colors. You’ll be able to see fine details in the photographs and that is certainly a good thing for content creators. However, there’s also a non-OLED variant available too. And its display is no slouch either. OLED XPS 15 covers 239% of the sRGB color gamut whereas the non-OLED one covers 210%. Both of them are much higher than the 128% that your average premium laptops offer. Furthermore, the display has a peak brightness of 626 nits. Thus, you won’t have any problem using the device outdoors.
This laptop offers the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU in addition to the Intel UHD Graphics 630. It is a powerful GPU that can do the heavy graphic intensive task but falls some steps behind the MacBook Pro 2019 which sports the AMD Radeon Pro graphics.
