    Laptop Build- Any suggestions greatly appreciated

      Hi guys- I am in the market for a new editing laptop (has to be a laptop, unfortunately). This will be my primary workstation. I edit with Premiere, After effects and Photoshop running, switching between them with dynamic link. I often have heavy After effects compositions with upwards of 30 layers, plus effects. I am going to start shooting RAW from a 5dmkIII, and eventually switch up to a Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6k later this year. Ideally, I would like to online edit, if that isn't a ridiculous demand. This is the spec I have come up with so far, and it's running in at about £2,500. If anyone has anysuggestions to bring the cost down a little, or reckons it's not even powerful enough, I'd love to hear your thoughts. I'm camera and light minded, not computer minded, so I'm struggling a bit with these decisions. Thanks in advance for your help,

      Noel
