    I got cold feet about the nonapple renewed Apple MacBook Pro that I mentioned in my other thread.

    Is a gaming laptop a viable/good choice to use for photo editing/processing with PS/LR monthly subscription?

    This is a brand new laptop that I am wondering about, and advise and opinions are appreciated.

    I think this laptop is pretty decent for ps/lr. Not too sure about the screen (you can get a external monitor if needed) but the other specs are pretty good.

    8th Gen i7 (10th Gen is the latest)
    32GB RAM
    512 GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HD
    Nvidia 1060 GPU with 6GB (I believe PS support this GPU) (1660 is newer, but I have this 1060 with 6gb in one of my desktop as well. (I use it for learn/play around with machine learning)

    I think everything should be pretty fast with a setup like this for PS/LR
