Thats nice (y)
I don't think Intel can better AMD chips for performance to power efficiency ratio. AMD all the way for laptop chips
I am thinking similar although not too bothered about 16gb ram if you already have a (even simple) dedicated graphics memory, allowing more functionality than just the shared graphics. Have you seen any other options close to this sale? Cheers
Not sure I would pay over £500 for a 5500u 8gb unless it had a big touchscreen or dedicated gpu. In that bracket you want a 5700u and/or 16gb. Edit: that's not to say it's a bad laptop or anything, decent sized ssd, but expectations have risen a bit lately.
Nothing wrong with AMD Ryzen. I've had Intel before & found AMD much better.
