Seems like a pretty solid deal for those specs. Would make a decent gaming rig. Has room to drop another 8gb of RAM in.

This seems to use a TN panel.
For a laptop, that is a deal killer for me personally.
For reference, I use a dell s2716dg (TN with g-sync) for my gaming rig, so I'm not biased against TN itself.

I don't think you'll get much better for mobile Photoshop options

More than anything else, Photoshop needs a lot of RAM to perform well, and 8GB should be plenty for most things. An SSD helps too for the times when Photoshop swaps to disk. GPU is less important but does help with certain operations, so the Nvidia 940MX is nice to see here. I regularly work with 2GB files with many layers on an old machine, and with 8GB RAM and a cheap SSD Photoshop is very snappy. It's often recommended not to set an SSD as your swap drive since swapping can reduce the lifetime of the disk, but with enough RAM Photoshop won't be swapping often and I feel the performance gain is worth it. I really like that this laptop includes both an SSD and mechanical.

This would be overkill for your purposes. Hard to go wrong on this one. The only thing I can think of to check additionally is the lcd panel, even for reviews perhaps calibrating similar screen types using a spyder tool or other. Hell of a machine...

Thanks. Corrected confusing (incorrect) specs. (My excuse? Cut and paste on a tablet at 4:30am :-) .)
