I would very appreciate your help with choosing the best laptop for every day use in my work - I'm a blogger, i write a lot, I also edit photos in Photoshop/Lightroom and want to go into some video editing for YouTube purposes.
Last week I bought Lenovo Ideapad 700 with great features: i7 processor, 16GB, SSD and HDD drives and Intel+Nvidia graphics but had to return it because this model has an awful defect with keyboard missing keystrokes, which was really frustrating (it's non-reparable as far as I know).
Anyway, I have some dilemma when it comes to what to do next - I have around 1300 USD budget and cannot find a good laptop to meet all my desired criteria:
i7 processor, 16 GB, SSD around 500GB with preferably additional 1TB HDD, matt IPS screen and good graphics, that would support Photoshop and Premiere (I don't play games).

I'm hesitating between:

Dell Inspiron 7560 (cheaper version)
Intel Core i7-7500U
16 GB
240 GB SSD M.2, 1000 GB SATA 5400 obr.
+ Intel HD Graphics 620, NVIDIA GeForce 940MX
(unfortunately) shiny screen, IPS

and

ASUS Zenbook UX410UA-GV122T i7-7500U/14FHD/16GB/512SSD+1000GB/HD Graphics 620/matt screen

The second one has no additional graphics card and I'm wondering if for my purposed additional one would be necessary? In other case, would 250 GB SSD be enough for multimedia purposes?

Let me know what do you think.

If you want to do premiere and photoshop, then get the Dell 7560. Almost all of adobe product likes discrete GPU, because they supports GPU acceleration (CUDA and OpenCL).

Use that 250GB SSD for OS, programs and your frequently accessed file. Let your multimedia files sit on your 1TB HDD

For shiny/glossy screen, don't worry.
You still can apply a anti-glare/matte screen protector to it. ;)
