I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I haven't checked any specs - I'm asking here first ...

is this what you are referring to?
it doesn't look like its touch screen?
do you know?
if not then forget this one - it is a gift and i know that the recipient wants touch screen ...

if you know:
so with 24 G ram (for the one model) does that mean 3x8 with 1 vacant?
does it have hdmi out?
usb 3? (it doesn't say even though these days usb probably means usb 3)
do you know if the 250 G SSD is the C drive?

There is a very good resource here on Adobe's website.

I reckon a laptop with the following:
Fast 64-bit CPU (Intel Core i7 Quad Core or faster), 64-bit OS
16GB RAM or more
NVidia graphics supporting GPU acceleration in Adobe Premiere Pro (either officially supported or not)
Fast internal storage: SSD or 7200rpm HDD
Fast connectivity for external storage or I/O devices: eSATA, USB 3.0, ExpressCard slot, etc.
17" 1920x1080
Support for a 2nd monitor via HDMI connector

hey guys - thanks for the input
I do need to say that I'm pretty sure of the specs I want - I just wanted specific laptop model recommendations
I'm having difficulty finding a high end Touchscreen laptop

I see now that my question was pretty vague ...
I didn't specify exactly what specs as there are many scenarios.
For ex this unit will end up with an SSD C drive but it doesn't need to have one off the shelf - I can add it.
And as far as RAM it should have 8 to 16 G I'm thinking but would want to add more than that so need the open slots to do so.
And other variables ...

Touchscreen 64 bit Windows
17.3 " screen
Upgradable RAM
2 HDD bays
At least 4 USB 3 ports
HDMI Output

Just a nice top notch laptop with a Touchscreen but doesn't need to be top of the line ...

Maybe a Dell Inspiron 17 7000 series:
