I'm looking for a laptop to do video editing on. I won't be gaming, but I would like to use this laptop to edit HD video (not in-game, but like, from a camera) using SONY Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Suite 12. I know for sure that Intel's HD graphics are NOT supported, and aren't very powerful in the first place. Would either of them be able to edit and render videos in SONY Vegas Movie Studio at ALL?
Which mobile graphics unit is more powerful, which would be better for video editing? Both choices feature i5 CPUs.
I know this would also fit into the laptop category, but I've got a question about the video card itself, not the laptop as a whole.

Requires a CUDA-enabled GPU and driver 270.xx or later.

NVIDIA recommends NVIDIA Quadro for professional applications and recommends use of the latest boards based on the Fermi architecture.
Requires an OpenCL-enabled GPU and Catalyst driver 11.7 or later with a Radeon HD 57xx or higher GPU. If using a FirePro GPU, FirePro unified driver 8.85 or later is required.
