What is a content creator laptop?


Content creators in general have a specific set of requirements when selecting a laptop for their work. A good content creator laptop should ideally have a high quality display capable of reproducing accurate colours paired with a high-powered processor and graphics card to tackle demanding graphical tasks like video editing and 3D rendering though some creative tasks like photo editing can be accomplished with less pixel crunching power. 

This is a gross simplification though as a good creator laptop also has a host of other requirements  to be effective in its chosen role including superior connectivity and sustained cooling performance under demanding workloads.
