My wife bought one for me for Christmas. She said, "hey, let's go to the store and get a little something for your photography." I thought she meant a tripod or lens. She tells me to drive to a locale computer store. Once in the store, she said, "OK Hun, pick out any laptop you want!" At first I picked out a less expensive version, but she saw the 4k version and said, "Hey, let's get this one instead."
Yes, it was pricey; I think $1200 US or so, but this is a seriously nice laptop.
I am a computer programmer by profession, and so really do not like the chicklet-style keyboard, but everything else about this laptop is fantastic.
I use ACDsee for photo management and manipulation. It is blazingly fast and the display blows away my ASUS 2k. The display folds completely over and becomes a tablet. Touch response is crisp and nice.
Can't say enough good things about this laptop.
One note about Windows, when opening and closing files, files are not always closed 'cleanly.' For example, When in ACDsee, After extracting photos from a ZIP file, I can't delete it because ACDsee thinks something has the file open. A restart of ACDsee is necessary. That has nothing to do with the laptop or ACDsee, it's a Windows 10 problem. I have similar problems on my work computers.
Hope that helps!
