Can anyone recommend a lap top that will edit the inspire 4k video, I will be using Premier pro. Budget is quite tight at £1000.
It is my understanding that I don't necessarily need a 4k monitor, when editing I will be viewing my time line in HD but when finished I can export my project onto disk and view an a 4k compatible device, is this right?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

a Macbook Pro 13" will handle editing Inspire footage just fine. Buy a Thunderbolt External and leave your native-source files on there. If you're using Premier Pro edit with the viewer at 1/4th or even 1/8th resolution and you should be fine.

Thanks for the advice Scooterlam. I've just come across this and thought  the screen size might be an advantage, what do you think? PS I've always wanted a MacBook, maybe this is the excuse I've been waiting for!!

That will work fine. Inspire h.264 4K files aren't THAT heavy on the processor.

That's a good processor and better yet, a killer graphics card, (dedicated ddr5 ram)

Forget about the HDD and get all SSD - (it is a different animal altogether)
(you can get tons of external storage and a 1tb HDD on your machine is a waste of $$$/space.)

Please look at the *options for that machine and see if you can select only 500g SSD, you will be happy you did -
