Hi all,
I'm looking for a new laptop that is able to do editing of astrophotography (astro software like Registax, Deepskystacker, Sequator, etc.) and preferably also Lightroom (and Photoshop).

I'm eyeing two laptops right now.
A Medion Akoya s4401 (256SSD, i5-8250U, intel Ultra HD Graphics 620, 8GB ram)
And an Acer gaming laptop, the Nitro 5, with similar specs (but with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050)

Is this enough, in your opinion?
Can the gaming laptop be used for the work I want to do?

My budget is maxed out at around 750$

I appreciate all your answers.
Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
Ro
