1. You need to define for yourself in terms of hardware what the requirement is, this is our role in the forum. I was basically aiming for an i7 \ Ryzen 7 processor, about 16GB of RAM with an option for 32, and a powerful but not overly graphics processor, for example GTX1650. If the editing level is not too heavy (still standard and still not planning residential neighborhoods), you can go for the i7 processor from the new series with built-in XE graphics processor, I heard very good things about them and I believe it will completely satisfy your requirements. There's also an MX series of Which is reasonable but most of the time you will find More lucrative.

SSD is pretty standard in all Today, just make sure he is .


2. You need to define for yourself what your goals are from the computer in terms of features. Is a special camera needed? Keyboard lighting? Touch recognition support? Some connections required? And all that comes out of it. 


Once you know the 2 sections I have written down you will know exactly which computer you need, just make sure to read reviews on it Real Before buying.


The HP you offered looks great and matches the general requirements
