i'm looking to buy a "new" laptop

i want to use it for photoshop (files up to 60MB)
occasional video editing (10min files maximum) 1920x1080 resolution is OK for final results.

since prices of new laptops with high end cpu start over 2.000€ i was looking to buy second hand market.

i found some HP Zbooks for 600€ that have core i7-4910mq processor + dedicated graphics Nvidia Quadro K2100M

new laptops have either Xeon, or core i7-8550u but have high prices

Here is a CPU comparions

My question is simple, is it really worth it to ga "all in" and purchase state of the art tech, or will a 2015 model still suffice for several years to come ?
