Question Advice on purchasing laptop (needs to run Adobe well...)

Hi all!

I am looking to purchase a new laptop for when I travel overseas in a few months. It needs to be powerful enough to smoothly run Adobe programmes like Photoshop and Lightroom simultaneously as well as handling very large RAW image files. I am also hoping to play the odd game on it as well (nothing huge and graphics heavy, just regular games). I am aware that most recommend Mac computers, however the over priceyness and practical impossibility of upgrading kinda puts it down for me (also, they aren't great for any sort of gaming). I know next to nothing about computers, so advice on pre-built systems or even individual parts to customise my own would be much appreciated! Also, the more affordable the better
