    No problem. If you do end up going with ASUS, I would recommend getting the bigger docking station for the SD card reader. ASUS SimPro Dock (https://www.asus.com/Docks/ASUS-SimPro-Dock/)

    Yes, the webcam isn't great on the XPS 13/15 due to the small bezels. The XPS 13 can be configured with a FHD anti-glare display, or a QHD+ (3200 x 1800) glossy display. The XPS 15 I think can...

    No worries. I also have friends with the XPS 15 - the 13's bigger brother and it's a lovely machine. The XPS 13 is one of the more popular machines at University - among Macbooks and Surface Pros....

    That's a large budget for a tiny 10 - 13" notebook. I think you are backing yourself into a corner by wanting so much power in such a small case. Understand notebook makers can indeed pack the...

    In my experience, a dedicated graphics chip does not make that much difference with video editing. You might see a 10% increase in speed with dedicated graphics compared to running off the Intel chip.
