Guys, I am in need for a new photo editing laptop for Windows

Right now I have Sager gaming laptop which i absolutely LOVE! I had it for about 4 years, great gamut, speed and so on. The problem is hinges are broken. Contacted customer service and other repair companies-no one can fix it. Apparently hinges is the weak spot. So, I am afraid to go with this brand again.

Could you advice me on new laptop options for photographers?

Must be

-Windows
-Over 16 in
-wide gamut and high speed (for photoshop)
-$2500.00 top budget

Thanks a bunch!

I'd look at another good gaming laptop.
Alienware
Asus ROG
Dell Inspiron 7000
Origin PC
Maingear
Falcon
Digital Storm


Sony a6300/ 16-70/4 / 70-200/4 G / Sony HVL-60M

For photo editing, your concern may be less processing/GPU power (unless you'll also be doing gaming)....but display panel used. The Dell XPS 15 gets good reviews for color gamut. The Lenovo Thinkpad W540 even includes an X-rite color calibrator built in:

I bought my son an Asus ROG for college (and gaming) and he runs his games at fairly high rates and edits 4k video on it.

Go to Dell and by a refurbished laptop with IPS screen and 7 generation Intel processor.. You can hot rod it from there on your own..
You'll save a bunch
