Laptop to edit 4k Hero 7 Videos

Good Day

I'm looking at upgrading my Laptop, and really not sure what to get, my ASUS could only edit GoPro 7 at 1080P 60f/s, I see everyone posts these beautiful 4K videos on Youtube, and I can't get passed 1080p, or pushing 2.7k 60f/s…???

 

So what now, what laptop should I get...????

 

Last thing I want is to spend loads of money and then sit once more and cant edit 4k.?????
Please help..!!!!!!!

I agree @bluejump16311,

 

I personally use the base model 16 inch i7 MacBook Pro. 

I think the 13 inch 2019 model can handle 4K as well based on the specs.
