How does this Ryzen 3 processor compare to the i3 7020U in other similar priced Asus'

The Ryzen is better, but its also newer!

This Ryzen is only the 15w version.

I would not suggest you buy an 7th gen intel I3, surely you can find newer? Argos have some with the 8th and 10th for not much money depending on what sale it is or isnt this week!

@joel_69 The AMD GFX eat up lots of RAM so i would not, you will have less then 4GB just to run windows, i believe the RAM is solder on to the board. Personally i would give it pass.

Excellent. Thanks for the advice. So if you had £300 what would you spend it on?

I would sit on my hands for a few weeks as retailers will be desperate to get rid of stock in order to keep cashflowing and shoppers are concerned about pay packets so i expect some large cuts.

Don’t even look at intel. Too many security problems. Last one impossible to solve with a patch. Only last gen is safe, for now(lol)

Most Intel security flaws require physical access to the machine. If you looking buying entry level laptop laptop without hardware encryption you are obviously not worried about being target for social hacking

8th gen CPUs are miles away from previous gen. And for the price in your link it is possible to find used laptop with 8th gen CPU

It’s getting ridiculous. Let’s say you buy a cpu with one particular performance and in time you end up with another. It’s their fault. Apple was forced to pay for lowering the battery performance on old phones. Intel should be too, for lowering performance of their cpu as a result of insecure architecture. I don’t care what you buy, just be careful, that’s all

You clearly don't know why Apple was forced to pay - they throttled performance so phones with degraded batteries wouldn't shut down automatically, but that wasn't why they got fined. Fine was there because they haven't been transparent about this - this is the only reason - it's good to validate your facts before talking.
Also some vulnerabilities affected both Intel and AMD and there are vulnerabilities affecting only AMD like this one cnet.com/new…wn/

Hence you have to do per SKU comparison and research if you really after that bang for a buck. Going AMD doesn't mean vulnerabilities not gonna be found in future to drop performance - as in my previous comment brand new Ryzen architecture has vulnerability not present in Intel
