for editing, would you rather a 4k laptop or one with an IPS-matte monitor?
So I'm planning on buying a laptop for (offline) editing, (PCs with same specs get too expensive) but an IPS-matte 4k laptop is way too expensive for me.
I can either get lenovo 5070 (i7 2.6 4720HQ, 16gb d3, 1tb+8ssd, gtx 960m 4g) which has 4k resolution on a 15.6 non-ips monitor (wouldn't the smallness of the monitor be a problem?)
asus n551 jx (i7 2.6 4720HQ, 8gb d3, 2tb, gtx 950 gf 4gb , 15.6 , matte-IPS)
I'm currently editing on 1024x768, so I'd be more than happy taking either route. Also I haven't seen an either IPS or 4k monitor yet, but some full hd monitors that I've seen don't feel like much of an upgrade from my 1024x768.
Of course, my eyes are not that trained, and I only saw those laptops in a shop for a limited time...
But given my circumstances, I'm not really good at color correction, maybe it was due to bad monitor or I just lack the talent, I'd like to learn more in future.
Which one would come more in handy, a 4k monitor or a matter IPS?
