Hey everyone.

I am looking to get a laptop for my work and i have no clue about the system needs.

I was thinking of

Acer Predator Helios 16 Abyssal,while I paint on my wacom cintiq and use an outside screen

This is the exact detailing of the laptop itself 

Am I going to get a smooth journey or it's going to be bad ?

Big files,some ai usage.

Should be fine - except the common problem with all laptops these days: dual GPUs. You may need to completely disable the integrated GPU.

 

Dual GPUs looks like a good idea on paper, but Photoshop (and ACR/Lightroom) uses the GPU for actual data processing. You can't send data to one GPU and get the result back from the other, so there can only be one GPU in that equation.

All laptops have dual graphics nowadays, and that's always a potential problem. But it should be simple enough to disable. See section 6 & 7 here:

Aside from that, as I said, the specs look fine. It has a 2 TB internal drive, which is good. You need that space for Photoshop's scratch disk (temporary working data).

I would recommend an M3 MacBook Pro rather than a Windows PC.

Other than being expensive and running hot and loud, the specs are fine.

What I would really recommend for Photoshop is a desktop machine. A laptop is never ideal for a lot of reasons, whatever the logo on the lid.

 

But if a laptop is what you want, this should be fine once you've disabled the integrated GPU (very simple operation).

Just be aware of the one big problem when disabling the integrated GPU- the computer will run much hotter than normal and battery life will go down. The idea is that the integrated GPU, which uses much less power, will be used for most tasks and the discrete GPU only used for things like games, video encoding, graphics editing, etc when its really needed.
