Quick and dirty, my buddy is looking to buy his wife a laptop. Work use primarily, with some light video and photo editing (personal use stuff, not professional). Web browsing, work emails, etc.

Any good cpu/gpu/ram combinations to look for that will allow his wife to get creative with editing while not breaking the bank? She mentioned Lenovo to him as a brand she’s interested in.

Basically, neither of us are up to speed on the latest gen i3 i5 i7 i9 stuff, not are we familiar with AMDs offerings these days. From talking to him, he doesn’t want to buy a MacBook.

I think she’ll be ok with windows movie maker, but let’s say what’s the minimum to run slightly higher end editing software?

He didn’t say anything about a touchscreen but I assume she’d want one.

And...go!

I hear new Ryzen laptop are very good. I would just make sure they have enough space for photo editing.
the 128 gig ssd some laptop come with would fill up fast.

I just updated a good condition asus Pentium laptop with a 240 gig ssd and double ram to 8 gig way faster.
