If you want really good editing viewing, get whatever pc suits you, and a small 4k TV and set it up to use the TV as a second monitor. it isn't difficult but the resolution would put any non-4k pc to shame. you can find easy step by step instructions in your pc and TV manuals, plus the pc would remain portable while the TV could also be used for watching normal TV. look for Black Friday deals on 4k TVs.

Be aware that not all graphics cards support full 4K resolution. Make sure you have a match before you spend the money on a screen.

Food for thought.
Don't buy the hype on using a 4K TV as a computer monitor | ITworld

Should You Buy a 4K Computer Monitor?

Looks interesting! Any problems or complaints about your laptop? I can see that the new version is lighter and thinner...

I have 16GB and a quad-core i7. The quad-core models can go up to 32GB. The current model is the W541
I also like having a docking station, so I just snap it in the dock to hook up with my dual 24" screens, printers, and other desktop peripherals.
32GB? Wow! Does it make any difference in photo editing?

I wouldn't know. I'm at 16GB now and don't feel like I need more - but I like having some headroom just in case.

Good info! I have 16Gb and everything is running smoothly.... I was just wondering whether there is any benefit of the 32GB. I am a wedding photographer so I don't really need the memory for video editing.

The more ram available allows for much faster video editing/rendering. Also, if you are using a pc as a server, high ram makes it easier to handle both incoming and outgoing traffic.
