These days, CPU, RAM and SSD should not be a problem. (The minimal specs would be i5, 8 or 16 GB, 512 GB SSD).

But... the screen should be really good enough for photography.

That might be the reason to choose a MacBook Pro or a competing product with a P3 screen.

There's really no such thing as a laptop with such a screen. Viewing angle and ambient light differences ensure that color accuracy is never as good as a standalone monitor in a stable lighting environment. A Mac's screen isn't exempt from those truths.

Yes, in most cases, calibration is more important than the screen itself. And a stable room lighting where the screen is. Etc.

Nonetheless, for a laptop, a screen with a wide enough gamut is better than a cheaper screen.
