Good day for all forum members!
So nice to be here after a big gap. Now i am return to programming and need laptop strong enough for javascript programming and photoshop. Hard choise, spend a few days, searching. Please, give me professional advice.

I focused on these models:
Asus G56GR -
Intel core i7 4700 or 6300HQ 8GB, MSI with the same details
And Dell inspiron 5559-9365 with intel core i5 6200U and AMD video card.

Maybe you advice me better models. Thank you! I need to buy this week.
ATMINSIDE, thank you very much for answer! To be honest, today i mostly use Photoshop for photo editing, not for design from stratch. Now i am mostly involved in projects with React, Redux, Webpack (devserver), Node. From time to time i am doing video editing. But most of time i am working as javascript programmer. Can you advice me a model of laptop?
Really need to know a budget to give a particular model suggestion.
My budget is about 700-800$. I googled again and went with that:
HP 250 G5
Ноутбук HP 250 G5 15.6" FHD/ Core i5-6200U/ 8GB/ 256GB SSD/ AMD R5 2GB/ DVDRW/ WiFi/ BT/ DOS/ Silver (W4Q08EA#ACB)

In my country it costs 750$.
I don't know if it enough for my tasks.

Also i've found post about Aser Aspire E E5-574G-75N8 on this forum, but in my country it costs about 800$, not 600$ :)
I would try to get something with a quad core i7 and a dedicated nVidia GPU, if it's available in your price range.
Currency conversions on technology don't translate well.
What dou you think about https://www.msi.com/Laptop/GL62-6QD.html#hero-overview
