Advice for Macbook Pro and External monitor

Time to replace my imac 2009.  It won't handle video editing at all and Lightroom is very slow in processing 42MB Sony A7RII images.  I am just an enthusiast but really want a setup that will handle lightroom with speed (I'm 77 and haven't got a lot of time left to waste!)

I'm thinking a macbook pro 15 inches with an external monitor 27-28 inches 4k.  I haven't had a laptop for ages, but can see how one would be of use to me as I travel in retirement.  So....

any suggestions for processor, drives, Ram, and monitors would be most appreciated.  Like to do this around $2500 budget if possible.

Thanks!
