Honestly I'm not a fan of Acer.  Are you stuck on PC or will you consider a Mac?  If PC - Surface Book.  Otherwise I would say pick up a MacBook Pro.

On paper, the Acer seems like it would be decent, but if you can afford an upgrade (possibly at a later date) then I'd suggest 16GB of RAM. I've also got a 128GB SSD / 1TB HDD combination, and I found that the boot drive is a bit small, especially when Adobe Premiere starts dumping huge cache files everywhere (I'm sure if you know what you're doing, you can make it dump them on the second hard drive). My computer is nearly 5 years old now, and I managed to edit a few 30 minute videos on Premiere without it really struggling at any point, (and the odd bit of After Effects). Admittedly in 1080p rather than 4K.

I was actually look at laptops myself in the last few days, and I was quite surprised to see how little they've moved on since I bought mine in 2014. They seem to have mainly focused on making them smaller and lighter with a longer battery life.

If you want another suggestion, I've read good things about the Dell XPS series.
