[R] How important is a laptop GPU for learning ML.

I just made a job change into data engineering (Hadoop/Pig/Spark/Kafka) and will be learning machine learning on the side. I’m looking to replace my old workstation(laptop) with a new one, but I don’t have enough knowledge to prioritize the specs I will be needing.

I’m not sure how cost effective a (laptop)GPU is for learning Machine learning and maybe getting to deep learning later.

I’m thinking of investing in a Gaming laptop with RTX2060 but I don’t want to go with a gaming laptop if a laptop GPU wont be enough for long term, and I can do the learning on just a good CPU. Also in that case, is something like i7-8565U good enough or do I need to go with 8750H ?
