Good Budget Laptop?

Has anyone used the Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop? I'm getting a laptop through work, but I'm on a bit of a budget. This laptop came up in a general google search I did for best laptops for Adobe Premiere. Acer is not the brand I would think of when it comes to editing which is why I'm hesitant to buy it. It has Intel Core i7 9th gen, 16 GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card. 

 

I'm not doing anything extensive, just some basic editing.

 

Thanks!

A bit less than ideal. All 9th-Gen i7 mobile CPUs have only 6 cores and 12 threads, whereas an 8-core/16-thread CPU is now the minimum that I would recommend for Premiere Pro.

 

16 GB is also less than what I would consider ideal, even for a laptop.

 

And a mobile RTX 2060, though relatively powerful for a mobile GPU, is still weaker than the desktop version of the very same GPU due to power limits.
