The intel version at costco to be $599 next week. I think that's the buy of the two but open to feedback.

The AMD processor also functions as a GPU, so they're not really comparable in that regard.

I bought Samsung Flex Alpha laptop at BestBuy but it has intel Core 7 and 12 GB RAM. Should I cancel my order and get this one instead ?

If that's the deal I'm thinking of, the CPU on Intel version has ~8000 benchmark, while the 4700U is closer to 13000.

to me, it depends whether the CPU upgrade is worth the extra money. Ryzen 4700U beats 10th-gen Core i7 and Core i5 handily in most tasks as well as may have better battery life. they are both good buys - just need to gauge the need for performance.

Do you think it's worth $150 spread for that for general purpose non gaming teenager use?

I bought the 4500U version of this back in June. Best laptop I've ever used.

I'm hopeful that Costco just does $100 of either but they didn't advertise this model.

I have a Lenovo non touch screen with 4600 but same ram and hdd and absolutely love it. I got it for $800 or so back in April iirc. Absolutely love it. I would get this laptop if I didn't already have what I have. I don't use touchscreen at all EXCEPT for one thing - esigning documents. I love being able to put on my own signature and I miss it.

Based on my experience of staying up to date with the market a bit since making my purchase, this seems like a very solid deal, might be best I've seen if you're looking for an office powerhouse but with the new AMD for some light gaming and multimedia work on the go.

Comps:

Walmart $890
Amazon $1000
Newegg $1200

The biggest drawback is the 250 nit display.

Does anyone have any insight on battery life???
