No PC utilizing Intel CPU is a deal at this time given the serious security risks recently disclosed and the significant performance hit the CPU will take as a result of the necessary software work-arounds. At bottom, you don't know the actual performance you will end up getting once the necessary software fixes are deployed. Nor do we know how it will impact battery life & efficiency. Play it safe and buy the faster AMD Ryzen (desktop) or Raven Ridge (laptop) based PCs as the security flaw does not affect AMD CPUs, and thus, they will not be subject to the performance sapping software fixes.

If you're not familiar with this major event, see

This is unrelated to the other recent disclosures concerning security vulnerabilities related to the Intel CPU management engine in previous generation CPUs.

Even with the perfomance penalty from the upcoming OS patches (which likely won't be big outside of a VM) this thing will stomp Raven Ridge

Slow down there big fella, it's still just a 1050 GPU and a mobile one at that! Stomp is a bit over zealous.
