My old Surface Book just is way to slow for me, I am looking at upgrading to a laptop 15 to 16" that really handles LR and PS even though I rarely use PS on laptop but do do some editing on laptop when traveling.
I have been looking around especially at the ASUS ProArt Studio books, along with EJ's recommendation on Razer, The Razer website is a little bit hard to navigate and options look limited,
Anyone have any comments or actually have one of the ASUS laptops. I have not looked at a new laptop in many years, so I am open to any suggestions.
Thanks
Mike

I was looking at a Dell xps 15 OLED, touch screen option, 12 gen i9 or i7, 32 memory, RTX 3050 ti. 
The screen is beautiful but I am not sure about a Rex 3050 Ti… would it render well with LR, PS and DXO? DXO is super slow as is…
I looked at Razer but can’t find a OLED type screen. I use a Matt BenQ desktop but would prefer a glossy type of screen on laptop.

The ASUS tudiobook series will be the best choice for you.  Configure one as you wish and it should be a very good and capable machine.  I'd look for 32GB of RAM and an nVidia 3xxx graphics card and the fastest processor you can afford.

Thanks EJ - they do look like nice laptops - but some come with NVIDIA RTX A3000 instead of  nVidia 3xxx. I suspect these are older versions and seem to have less ram. One that looks interesting has Intel Core i7-12700H (12th Gen) and a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 16 GB GDDR6 VRAM with 32 GB of 4800 MHz DDR5 memory. Any advantage of going with Core i9-12900H (12th Gen) I saw where you mentioned the i9's tend to get really hot

Sorry I could not make weird additions out of post

Almost no advantage to the i9 for photography and it will run a lot hotter. The i7 machine you quoted looks great!
