your better off with intel 11th gen which is out
10th could not compete with amd 4500u cpu
also Lenovo has problem with windows update and will keep crashing the fix so far is disable security
also leobo hinges are weal expect them to break after year


at that price you should get video card
Neither the 11th Gen can beat Ryzen 5 4500U. They are still Quad Core chips.
And I have 4 Lenovo devices with none having problems with Windows update and none of their hinges are broken.
You may have bad experience with your particular model but saying all Lenovo device will have Windows update problem or their hinge will break, is kind of lame.

good find, but the glossy display kills it, for me.

Max resolution is 4096x2304@30Hz.

So 2k/4k monitor should be fine for single external monitor.

From where did you get that information?
That's another piece of wrong information. It has HDMI 2.0, so 4K at 60 hz. Now using the Thunderbolt 3 port, you can run another two 4K monitor at 60 Hz, using the Thunderbolt docks or 1 monitor using a Type-C to display port or hdmi 2.0

More cores are mostly useful if you have highly-threaded/parallel workload. For everyday tasks like internet, Office, Netflix, 4 cores are more than enough. More cores are useful when you do video encoding and computationally-heavy professional workloads, but then you are better off not using this particular laptop anyways due to limited heat dissipation envelope of the chasis.

Also, single-threaded and graphics performance on Intel 11th gen are beating Ryzen 4000s in benchmarks.

I really love what AMD has done for the CPU market lately in making it much more competitive, but let's not be blind fanboys either.

Most laptop users don't need more than 4 cores. If you really need more cores, you should get a desktop with 10/12 cores with AIO to unleash the power of that CPU.

Then why all core i7 laptops are 6 core at minimum? And how did you know most people don't need more than 4 cores for laptop? Did they tell you that? Don't try to judge everybody's requirements by yours.

The i7 processors are all 6 core because that's what consumers think they want when they spend a lot of money on something. Most people just see gigahertz and cores, more being better. The car with 8 cylinders is clearly better than the car with 4. The 20 piece McNuggets meal is obviously better than the 4 piece McNuggets meal.

I think it's fair to say the average person thinks they need more cores because marketing says they do. They're not looking at benchmarks, they're looking at advertisements. People do content creation/editing on dual-core MacBook Air laptops because they saw an upbeat ad with glitter explosions and actors smiling a lot while they dance around holding a MacBook.

I like to research and overanalyze everything. Others just want to swipe their cards at whatever has an RGB keyboard. Just buy what makes you happy.

Edit: Not trying to call anyone out or anything, all valid points, just adding my two cents.

Well, what you think is correct and based on your own assumption. Having more cores in a 15W TDP U series Processor which AMD did, is a pretty great upgrade because that enables the consumers to do a lot of stuffs which were not possible with 4 Cores.

I think your work is just basically browsing the web and streaming videos and you just judging everybody by that workload. But people do a lot of stuffs which require more processing powers like Video Editing, Encoding, code compilation.

By the way, they do provide better performance in almost every scenario over a 4 Core CPU. For example, a lot of people use Gaming Laptops with 6 Core CPUs because all modern games an take huge advantage over a 4 Core, which is just a bare minimum now a days. Thinking that most people are idiots to buy 6 Core or 8 Core over 4 Cores without any actual performance gain just shows how limited your knowledge are.

If you do any kind of stuff which are multi-threaded in nature and take advantage of multiple cores, the performance difference is huge and clearly noticeable. Today's worlds, almost all the demanding tasks are multi-threaded in nature and can take full advantages of more cores.
