Massive difference in performance between the Ryzen 5 and the Pentium N5000. N5000 is a lower-end budget processor. The Ryzen outperforms it in every scenario by what appears to me to be two CPU classes. Not even a comparison. The N5000 is below most of the lowest i3's in performance.


Huge difference - the A4,A6, etc. series, that started with the "Llano" architecture was when AMD was clearly inferior to Intel save for only the integrated graphics department. It was dark days for AMD back then. Starting from Llano all the way to the Bristol Ridge architecture, it was BAD until Raven Ridge finally changed everything in '17.(Ryzen).

To put it nicely AMD was a pretty bad option back then, save for maybe the value-per-performance of a few of those computers.


TN is the most common typical non-IPS monitor. Nothing wrong with that.

Unless your college student needs to do some color-accuracy sensitive video or graphic editing work. Then go with IPS.

Listed on NotebookCheck [notebookcheck.net]as having "4 GB soldered + 4 GB PC4-21300 (2666MHz), 17-17-17-39, Dual-Channel". Not ideal but it'll do. Display is listed as being a TN though, which could easily be a dealbreaker. The APU is killer though.

So is the screen not good on this one? From what I've been reading in recent threads, it seems difficult to find a decent 15" screen, good processor, and a ssd in the $400 price range.

Can someone explain why/whether this would be preferred over the one below which seems to be almost the same mod but with a larger SSD and $60 cheaper? The processor is different, is that it? What's the advantage Ryzen 5 over the Pentium?

No backlit keyboard? Hmmm also really small battery, pass!

I'm really impressed with my Huawei Matebook D i got on the walmart $299 deal, you can find them on eBay for a decent price though... It's 13 inch with no dvd-rw but it does have a 7-8 hour batter life and ips screen and backlit keyboard. Otherwise its the same setup with cpu/ram/ssd...

Are IdeaPads almost as good as a ThinkPad as far as durability and build quality? Or are they at least better than an avg. laptop? I'm looking for a durable (but affordable) laptop for a college student ... any recommendations are appreciated!

Thanks, looks pretty significant. For a casual use like surfing, MS Office, light photo editing, kids educational programs, and casting video to Chromecast, am I going to realize any of those benefits of the better processor? It seems like the larger SSD, lower price, and presumably better battery life (assuming?) of the one with the weaker processor might work better for me? Appreciate the advice.
