    Hello. My mother is looking for a laptop for video and picture editing.

    Her budget is 1750 CAD or 1300 USD

    A few things she is looking for include:

    A 13" laptop, A 4K touch display that can fold into a tablet, A SSD instead of an HDD, A decent processor and a decent graphics card.

    If anyone can link to a site that is selling a laptop that fits those specs at or below that price, I would very much appreciate it as I couldn't find much. It would also be preferred that it ships to Canada.

    Get the new Alienware 13, is considerably compact, fits your budget and you can customize it to your needs.

    Thanks but one of the main things that she was looking for was that it could convert into a tablet

    oh i missed that part.

    In that case, any of these (preferably the 3rd one): http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/productdetails/xps-13-9365-2-in-1-laptop

    Edit: The graphics processing aren't super crazy or anything but they're good enough to play games like Skyrim.

    That point does narrow it down a bit. The Surface Book is out of her price range. I had an Asus TP-500LN which had Nvidia 840m, but it was a 15.6" screen and a pile of shit.

    I don't think there are any 13" models. there are a couple 15" 2-in1s with GPUs, such as my Asus and a Lenovo Flex.
