With 2x4GB RAM that's probably got one SODIMM soldered in and the other one probably being VERY hard to get at to improve that's a negative to me for your / my use case.
Then look at the fact that it has no external GPU card it seems like it could perform a lot better for some kinds of video processing tasks if it had a GPU card; depends on the kind of video work you are doing and the program's ability to use the internal or external GPU effectively.

And then the internal SSD is not large and not exactly super fast either.

I'd probably look at like 32GBy or 64 GBy RAM, 1TB-2TB fast TLC NVME SSD with DRAM cache and an external GPU card for video editing personally.
Actually I'd really try hard to do it on a suitably equipped desktop rather than a laptop since the relevant HW would be cheaper, more easily expandable / customizable, and wouldn't thermally throttle like a laptop would.

So my vote: hard pass for you.

I'm passing too for similar reasons.

I believe that neither stick of RAM is soldered - Crucial advertises pairs being available for this laptop: https://www.crucial.com/compatibl...5-dw3165st

I agree that you can definitely find a better machine for video editing, but it will cost considerably more (especially the dedicated video card portion).

I guess it depends what "video editing" means to you.

If video editing means working on simple short family videos or similar then this would probably do fine.

If it means editing and color-grading feature length Hollywood videos in your mom's basement like most SD members, then no. Because you're better off editing nothing if you aren't doing it right. So you shouldn't be looking at a bargain ~$400+ laptop.

btw, on a more serious not, if it does have two slots I would assume it would accept whatever higher capacity RAM sticks fit up to at least 32GB RAM. I don't know if it has a speed limiting on the RAM but those limits seem to hold more than limiting max RAM seem to. I say 32GB RAM because I don't often have 64GB RAM sticks to throw in things to test.

If you can get a Ryzen 5 that's 6c/12t at this price, it'll do better. I mean, they had that in an HP last November w/ a GTX 1650.

Laptop prices do seem worse than a year ago. But I'd at least wait a couple weeks to see what Black November sales bring.

If anyone's interested, Lenovo has their Y540 with the 2060 for $739: https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/outl...81SX00R6CF

I think it's the cheapest you'll see anything near that caliber, even a standalone discrete card.

Correction: It's the 1660 Ti. I think the MSI w/ the 3060 is a better deal at $850. But this really isn't what this posted deal for $440 is about.

Look for a gaming laptop with a discreet graphics card if you want to do any video editing

not true - the video processing in the 11gen + Xe are fine unless your using a commercial class tool chain for transcoding.

Yep, a definite trade off. Still, if you want a very good gaming machine, you can't really beat that total system price.
