Hi all,
My budget is around 1000 Euro and I am looking for a laptop for doing editing and graphic design (Photoshop and Premiere).
I want the display to support 100% SRGB.
I think an RTX 3060 and an Intel Core i7 are good.
I don't know if I have to buy a gaming or a workstation model. My preferences are MSI and HP Omen.
Can I get a good Mackbook with this budget?
What are your suggestions? Which model or series is good for me?

Thanks.

You're missing some details, details that's been asked of from this template;

Please use that and provide a follow up to this thread. Be sure to provide links to any preferred sites for purchase(if you have access to local e-tailers only) As for your app's, are those the only two apps you're going to be taxing the laptop with?

Brilliant! Do you have sites that would help us see what sort of laptops you have access to or are you willing to ship it from another country...? I'm not familiar with any sites in Hungary hence the question.

Thank you for the links! :)

I stuck to one site + narrowed down this one;
https://aqua.hu/laptop-notebook/asus-vivobook-pro-16x-oled-n7600pc-l2097-laptop-szurke-t1247525
You can look through the shortlisting I did for your needs;
&sort=Price%20desc]https://aqua.hu/termekek/laptop-notebook-799.html?filter=[price=76900,476000||stock=1||p=1|14%22||p=1|14.1%22||p=1|15.6%22||p=1|16%22||p=1|16.1%22||p=3|range-8-16]&sort=Price%20desc
thought looking at it a second time, I am leaning on this with regards to internal specs;
https://aqua.hu/laptop-notebook/acer-nitro-an515-57-749a-laptop-fekete-nhqeweu008-t1142822

The Asus does have a higher pedigree display, mind you. Great if you're trying to use your laptop during presentation with clients.

Thanks for your suggestions.
I want RTX 3060 (or anything similar or better within my budget). The Acer model is okay but how about an MSI or HP Omen? I've seen the Omen devices, they are metal and the design was fantastic. My current device is an MSI and I've found that their durability is pretty long.

By the way, to do the editing which CPU should I buy? AMD or Intel?

Can you send me some more suggestions? (MSI or Omen) The thing is that when I search for them, I find a dozen of models with the same series, so I cannot find the perfect model and I get confused. Not to forget that, an Omen device I found supported 100%SRGB.

Looking forward to more suggestions.
Thanks.
