Video editing is done on computers of all shapes and sizes. Today's processors, even mobile ones. are capable of handling a wide array of video editing tasks. There are situations that require the highest end computer systems available, such as when a video editor is working with multiple live streams of 4K footage and applying multiple effects. However, the typical video editor is still working with compressed HD footage and higher end processors handle this with ease in almost any computer system configuration.
The question always comes in, "How much should I expect to pay for a computer that will allow me to do video editing?" The answer is you shouldn't have to pay too much. Today's technology is highly capable and comparatively affordable. Standard video editing doesn't require a monster budget and today's software allows a video editor to accomplish a lot on a small budget.
