Looks ok. Going to find some reviews
Haven't seen that the mobile version has been announced yet but I might expect a GDDR6 equipped, 1650 'Super' laptop to be just around the corner for the same money.
I paid this for my Asus 1060 laptop some 18 months ago from Amazon. Shame that performance is going backwards for the same money nowadays. Probably nothing better currently for the price which is ridiculous.

I was going to say, this seems like too much for a GTX 1650 equipped machine, but as it’s still relatively new I guess they are just price gouging...

I get £15 back on call of duty (paid in 2 weeks) I got £38 + £15 for my rx 5700 xt already validated and I'm waiting on £28 for my Asus Strix 32 inch 1440p 144hz monitor which I got yesterday for £280 (open box) to come through 😁 amazing! Just remember to cancel the trial

Lack of competition again, you can see it in this segment. AMD really haven't offered a lot of mobile products in the past few years because their GPUs haven't been power efficient enough. Navi should be good enough, Apple have been eating it up in the Macbook Pro so other PC OEMs need to muscle in.

I have seen MSI incorporate the new Navi chips. I haven't seen other machines with it yet. The MSI Alpha 15 has a Ryzen 3750H and the new RX 5500 mobile part.

Unfortunately, it sucked. It struggled to beat the 1650 outright in other machines, partly because of the Intel CPU in those, possibly partly because of thermal issues but also it could have been early driver level issues. The clock speeds of it were all over the place giving inconsistent performance.

On paper it should take the 1650 to the cleaners but at the moment Nvidia still seems the better choice through maturity and Intel CPU advantage.

Expect this situation to change early next year when the 7nm AMD Ryzen 2, reputedly six-core, 4000 series mobile CPUs replace the cheap but feeble 3750H & 3550H.

Also I can't help but think that sooner or later, AMD will fill the hole between the 5700 & 5500 series GPUs with a decent 192 bit bus width GPU (the 5600M perhaps?).

At this point, we might at last see some genuine competition in the gaming laptop market.

I wish amd would not mix generations of CPU in the 4000 series again.
Is this laptop any good? Looking for something that won't be pushed too much on the graphics as mostly programming with the occasional Elite Dangerous / Football Manager / Fallout gaming

thanks

It works well with Football Manager / light gaming...couldn't tell you about the programming side.

I'll search for more reviews before committing, will beat my old samsung 3rd gen i7 laptop hands down....hopefully
Also available at the same price via their eBay store - ebay.co.uk/itm…508

As predicted, it looks like AMD will be bringing forth a mobile GPU which exceeds the performance of the 5500M...
