Hi. You posted your question in the non-technical Lounge forum, which is where you can connect with your peers for conversations that don't directly relate to product help and support. I’ll move your question to the Premiere forum so that you can get the answer you are looking for.

You really need a quad-core, 8-thread CPU and a discrete Nvidia GPU (preferably a higher-end one like a GeForce GTX 1060) in order to edit 2K content sufficiently smoothly on a laptop. You see, that dual-core i7 is actually slower than a desktop i3 CPU even without considering the GPU performance. And dual-core PCs are generally limited in practice to 720p as far as comfortable video editing performance is concerned.

With After Effects you need lots of memory and If you only have that one SSD your really need a second SSD.
