Re: I Need a laptop...

My 3 year old Dell Inspiron 5000 does fine with D850 files in Lightroom.  Not as fast as my PC's, but fast enough not to be 'slow'.   A key is having SSD for everything, and enough RAM.

16GB RAM, 500GB NVME SSD boot drive (Samsung 970 EVO) and a 1TB SATA SSD.  I upgraded both drives from the original ssd/hdd combo.  Also upgraded WIFI chip ($40) to WIFI6.

CPU is Intel Core I7 8550U.

I'd say anything with more hardware will do even better.  You have lots of configuration options with Dell.
