Laptop specs for after effects and premiere?

I am looking into buying a laptop specifically for premier and after effects. I have the option of either the 8th gen 6 core i7 or 32gb ram. Which one should I go for?

You're not going to like this -- for PP, go for the processor and for AE go for the RAM. The choice stinks, right?

Yup. That'll do okay. You should be made aware that a laptop won't be up to the task of smoothly editing 4K in H.264. Ask about your proposed hardware on the PP forum here.
