I currently use an i7 4770 with 16gb RAM in my home desktop but need a laptop for portability, and getting some edits done when travelling.
Budget is €300-400, so happy to buy second hand.
Any recommendations ?
At that budget you might struggle a small bit.
It all depends on what you need to do in photoshop really. If it's relatively light work then I'd say you'll be okay. I just found this and it's a steal for the money:
Probably the best CPU you'll get for that money, and 256gb SSD too. The only drawback is the lack of RAM. But this is common at this price point. It does seem that it is possible to upgrade this yourself if you're handy with a screwdriver.
Drawbacks for all machines in this price range are screen quality. It is generally bad, with poor enough colour reproduction which will be a problem editing photos. But at your budget you just won't get a quality screen imo.
