Help! Need suggestions for my new laptop for photo editing

Hello all. I’m looking for a replacement laptop that will mainly be dedicated to photo editing (mostly Topaz Studio 1, maybe 2. My other software to date is PaintShop Pro). It has been suggested I look at a gaming laptop, for the performance power and storage. I would like a touch screen but I also just got a Wacom tablet, so I guess touch screen isn’t essential.
Can anyone share their experiences or preferences–loves–with me regarding a laptop I should consider? My budget needs to not exceed 1500, and I know that eliminates some.
Thank you.

Gaming laptop would be the choice. What you need is a good Video card that would have and a lot of memory…

Lenovo 720S (81CR0002US) 15.6" 4K/UHD IPS Touchscreen Intel Core i7 7th Gen 7700HQ (2.80 GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 16 GB Memory 512 GB PCIe SSD Windows 10 Home 64-Bit Ultra Slim Gaming Laptop

Around $1200.00

Thank you, this is one I hadn’t looked into, but will now.
