New laptop for editing on Adobe Premiere Pro

Hello,

I need a new laptop for videoediting on Adobe Premiere Pro. My main requirement is that the software would run smoothly for the next couple of years at least - a little bit slower renderring times or so do not play such a big role for me. I had to return Dell XPS 15 9560, because it was facing a really annoying playback issue when used with NVIDIA Geforce 1050 - according to Adobe itself, Nvidia Geforce 1050 is not working well with the software at this right moment.

Right now I am looking for a different option, but before spending so much money I would appreciate anybody's experience which system would be most stable (or which GPU would be most compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro):

-Lenovo Thinkpad P51 - Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 15.6" FHD (1920x1080), 16GB DDR4 2400MHz SODIMM, 512GB SSD PCIe, NVIDIA Quadro M1200M 4GB GDDR5

-Apple Macbook Pro 15" (2015) - 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.0GHz, 16GB of 1600MHz memory, 512GB SSD, Intel Iris Pro Graphics

-Apple Macbook Pro 15" (2017) - 2.8GHz quad-core 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.8GHz, 16GB 2133MHz LPDDR3 memory, 256GB SSD storage, Radeon Pro 555 with 2GB memory

I am new to Adobe forums, so excuse me if the information is not sufficient!

In general I would be very grateful if anybody using Adobe Premiere Pro on one of those systems would share if it is running well...

best regards

Search the forums for "MacBook" and "crashes".

In short, none of those three laptops work well with Premiere Pro, in large part because their integrated Intel graphics is permanently locked to the "Always Enabled" setting at UEFI level, and thus cannot be turned off at all. And the currently available Intel drivers do not support OpenCL on the newer-generation integrated GPUs. Therefore, the MPE renderer on all three of those laptops would become effectively locked to the "Software Only" mode, with absolutely no GPU acceleration. And the Radeon Pro 555 itself has issues of its own in Adobe Premiere.

And the 2015 MacBook Pro does support OpenCL due to it being an older IGP generation. However, its performance in GPU-accelerated mode is almost as poor as a really cheapo discrete GPU such as a GeForce 945M. As such, you might as well semi-permanently lock the renderer to the MPE software-only mode.
