https://www.lenovo.com/sg/en/laptops...6rZ1R7bCWZiYqO

thinking of getting something like this to do portable work. and perhaps get an eGPU to do video editing at home.

gurus, your advise will be greatly appreciated.

thank you.

No Thunderbolt 3 port = NO EGPU

You die die need to have a Thunderbolt 3 port in order to use EGPU.
Thunderbolt 3 bandwidth allows for connection speeds up to 40Gbps.

I suggest go to https://egpu.io for fore details

USB 3.1 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps).
USB 3.0 is capable of data transfer speeds up to 5Gbps.
USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5Gbps).

TS ah.
eGPU sucks and the dock itself is very expensive.
Go grab a proper laptop with a proper GPU.

TS, at the price of both the laptop and the eGPU.
Why not get a proper laptop instead?
Even though that laptop is cheap but:
- It is using U series chip which isn't suitable for video editing
- It is using HDD but not SSD and running Windows 10 will crawl

That spec isn't very ideal for video editing so
consider a laptop with Intel H series with decent graphics.
If you are a student, can ask for edu pricing or look
for second hand sets.

Like from PCdreams, Dell Factory outlet or Caurosell.
