如果您正在寻找最适合视频编辑的计算机,我们可以提供帮助。在本指南中,您可以找到我们现在最好的视频编辑计算机 - 以各种不同的价格点 - 来帮助您的录像,无论您的技能水平如何。

+$If you're editing videos, you'll need powerful computer so that it doesn’t lag when dragging audio and video clips, exporting, rendering and finalising the mountain of footage that you’ll accumulate. This is especially true when working with high-definition video.

为什么选择台式电脑而不是其中之一用于视频编辑的最佳笔记本电脑+$? While today’s top-of-the-line laptops are indeed powerful enough to be used for video editing, you still get the best performance and best value for money from a desktop computer, with the added benefit that it’s much easier to upgrade.

+$When choosing a computer for video editing, you’ll need a good CPU (preferably with four or more processor cores) and plenty of memory. It also helps to keep your media on fast storage, preferably an SSD. In most software packages, it also helps to have a powerful+$graphics Card+$that can be used to accelerate certain visual effects and filters. (While you're here, you might want to check out our guide to the最佳视频编辑软件+$, to whip your footage into shape.)

+$We’ve picked out some of the top Windows PC and Mac computers for video editing, with a focus on both some of the most powerful workstations on the market today, as well as some options if your budget is more limited. Read on for the best computers for video editing...

Best computer for video editing: 21-inch Apple iMac with Retina display [Image: Apple]

+$01. 21-inch Apple iMac with Retina display (2019)


中央处理器:+$4-6 core Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 |屏幕:+$AMD Radeon Pro 555X / 560X / Vega 20 |显卡:+$8GB - 64GB |内存:+$8-64GB |存储:+$Hard Disk / Fusion Drive / 256GB - 1TB SSD |端口:+$4x USB-C (Thunderbolt) , Ethernet |尺寸:+$52.8cm (w) x 45.0cm (d) x 17.5cm (h) |重量:5.66kg |OS:苹果系统

+$Plenty of processing grunt
+$Thick Bezels
+$No SSD in base specification

+$We think the best computer for video editing right now is the+$21-inch Apple iMac with 4K Retina display (2019)+$. Now sporting six and eight-core 9th-generation Intel processors, the 2019 iMac has received the most significant update since Apple added a Retina display to the specification, making it a video editing powerhouse.

+$Of the two available screen sizes, the 21.5-inch Retina iMac represents a better overall combination of value and performance than the larger 27-inch model. You get an extremely high quality, bright 4K Retina (4,096 x 2,304) display with a quad-core processor and AMD Radeon Pro 555X graphics card, that’s absolutely great for video editing. Choice upgrades would include adding some more memory and swapping the 1TB hard disk for an SSD, while a six-core processor is also available.

best computer for video editing: Microsoft Surface Studio 2 [Image: Microsoft]

+$02. Microsoft Surface Studio 2

+$A brilliant Windows all-in-one

中央处理器:+$Intel Core i7-7820HQ |屏幕:+$28-inch 4500x1300 resolution IPS display |显卡:+$Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB -GTX 1070 8GB |内存:+$16-32GB |存储:+$1-2TB SSD |端口:+$4xUSB 3.0; 1xUSB-C; SD card slot; Gigabit Ethernet; 3.5mm headphone jack |尺寸:+$63.7cm x 1.3cm x 43.9cm x 1.3cm (WxDxH) |重量:+$9.56kg |OS:Windows 10

+$Powerful Graphics
+$High-res Touch-sensitive Display
+$No 9th-gen Intel processor option

+$Unlike Apple’s iMac all-in-one, a touch-sensitive  28-inch display (4,500 x 3,000) display is the centre piece of Microsoft’sSurface Studio 2+$, letting you drag and drop video clips with a finger as well as a mouse. It comes with hinge that lets you flip the screen all the way down to edit video and it can be used with a pen for drawing too.

+$Microsoft needs to update the Surface Studio with more modern CPUs, but it makes up for it with some serious graphics grunt powered by Nvidia, with a GeForce GTX 1070 available that will provide some serious visual power.

best computers for video editing: Mac Mini [Image: Apple]

+$03. Mac Mini (2018)

+$Powerful, small and great for video editing

中央处理器:+$4-6 core Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 |屏幕:+$Not Included |显卡:+$Intel UHD Graphics 630 |内存:+$8-64GB |存储:+$128GB-2TB SSD |端口:+$4x USB-C (Thunderbolt) , 2x USB 3, Ethernet, HDMI |尺寸:+$19.7cm (w) x 19.7cm (d) x 3.6cm (h) |重量:1.3kg |OS:苹果系统

+$Fairly Portable
+$No Discrete Graphics
+$Add in Apple’s upgrades and the price skyrockets

+$We Love The+$Mac Mini+$’s flexibility and diminutive form factor, so we’re really pleased to see Apple updated it with a modern specification and a new 'space grey' colour late last year. It is still one of Apple’s most affordable computers (relatively speaking) and now it’s capable of a lot more, including video editing. Pair it with one of the+$best monitors for video editing+$for a great setup.

+$The base model features a quad-core processor, 8GB of memory and a (paltry) 128GB SSD. All of these can be upgraded, with an optional six-core processor and a larger SSD for even high-end video work. But with a bit of tinkering you can upgrade the memory yourself for less money than Apple charges, and there are six expansion ports at the back for either USB or Thunderbolt external storage.

+$04. HP ENVY 795

+$HP’s slick micro-desktop has the guts to edit video

中央处理器:+$3.5 GHz six-core Intel Core i7 - 3.3GHz 10-core Intel Core i9 |内存:+$8GB - 64GB |端口:+$6 x USB 3, 1x USB-C, 2x USB 2, DVI, HDMI Ethernet, SDXC |尺寸:+$37cm (w) x 15.4cm (d) x 36.5 (h) |重量:+$8.86kg |OS:Windows 10

+$Unobtrusive Desktop Case
+$Fast CPU Performance
+$GTX 1060 is limiting for gaming

+$With an 8th-generation Intel processor, HP’s silver-fronted Envy desktop PC is a box with more than a few tricks up its sleeve. The range is absolutely great for mid-range video editing, as the Nvidia GeForce graphics card can help out with various processing tasks, such as applying visual filter effects, while the main six-core CPU does much of the hard work.

+$We’d pick the slightly pricier 16GB option (or perform a memory upgrade) for more demanding video editing tasks, but as it carries an asking price that won't break the bank, this is a great all-rounder family computer with enough performance to cope with video editing well.

best computers for video editing: Dell XPS 27 AIO [Image: Dell]

+$05. Dell XPS 27 AIO

+$A powerful all-in-one PC for video editing

中央处理器:英特尔酷睿i5-7400 - 酷睿i7-7700 |显卡:英特尔高清显卡630; AMD Radeon RX 570 |内存:8GB - 32GB |存储:1TB硬盘 - 2TB SSHD; 512GB SSD |显示:27英寸4K(3,840 X 2,160)显示屏


戴尔XPS 27 AIO+$is another PC that may stretch the budget, but hear us out. This astonishing all-in-one from Dell comes with a mighty 27-inch 4K Ultra HD touchscreen display and an ear-busting set of six speakers. That makes for the ideal platform from which to view – and hear – what you've shot and get the best from it in post-production.

戴尔XPS 27在行业标准的基于图形的基准测试中表现令人钦佩,毫无疑问得益于外壳下的3.6GHz英特尔酷睿i7-7700处理器。而这款高端机器还以时尚时尚的无线鼠标和键盘的形式获得了优质的外围设备。

+$06. 27-inch Apple iMac with Retina display (2019)

+$An amazing machine for video editing... but it'll cost you

中央处理器:+$4-8 core Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 / i9 |显卡:+$AMD Radeon Pro 570X / 580X / Vega 48 |内存:+$8GB - 64GB |端口:4x USB 3,2x USB-C(Thunderbolt),以太网,SDXC |尺寸:+$65cm (w) x 20.3cm (d) x 51.6cm (h) |重量:1.3kg |OS:苹果系统

+$Lovely Thin Chassis
+$Expensive Upgrades
+$Thick Screen Bezels

+$2019 27-inch IMac+$is a real powerhouse that represents Apple’s best overall desktop video editing workstation. The reason that it's a little further down our list is that it doesn't come cheap. Its 5K Retina (5,120 x 2,880) display is absolutely brilliant, it produces superb colours, conforming to the DCI-P3 colour specification. And with an optional eight-core processor, it will significantly reduce rendering times and chew through even 4K video editing work.

+$Typical of Apple, it becomes a pricey prospect if you start adding lashings of SSD storage and the Radeon Pro Vega graphics card, but you can easily add more affordable third-party memory rather than pay Apple’s prices to reduce costs a bit.

best computers for video editing: Acer Predator Orion 9000 [Image: Acer]

+$07. Acer Predator Orion 9000

+$A powerhouse that's aimed at gamers, but will excel at video editing

中央处理器:+$3.5 GHz six-core Intel Core i7 - 3.3GHz 10-18core Intel Core i9 |内存:+$8GB - 64GB |端口:+$7x USB 3, 1x USB-C, 2x HDMI, Ethernet, SDXC |尺寸:+$30cm (w) x 70cm (d) x 64.3cm (h) |重量:+$19.2kg |OS:Windows 10

+$Masses of CPU power available
+$Dual graphics cards optional
+$Expensive Top-end Configuration
+$Bright appearance could be a turn-off

+$With its bright blue LEDs, Acer’s new Predator desktop line-up (Orion 3000, 5000 and 9000) is squarely aimed at gamers, and comes with a specification that pairs the latest Intel processors with powerful Nvidia graphics cards. But with so much power to hand, these quiet and attractive systems are certain to be absolutely brilliant for video editing too.

+$The Top-end+$Orion 9000+$has one of the most powerful hardware configurations of any computer in this list. It has Intel processors with ten, or even 18 CPU cores, up to 64GB of memory and if your budget can stretch to it, even dual Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards. That incredible configuration is sure to shrug off complex 4K video editing tasks like they’re simple edits in Microsoft Paint.

如果你每天都需要一台重量级的机器进行专业的视频编辑,这台机器可能不会完全切断芥末。但对于热衷于业余爱好者和dabblers的人来说,这款联想多功能一体机的1000英镑/ 1000美元的支出应该还不错。值得注意的是,您可以购买更便宜的基于AMD的版本,但它的功能会更低,而且您可以使用更小的显示器。
