It's complicated. The Tiger Lake i5s (11th gen mobile) do better with single-core tasks (most everyday things), but they're 4-core processors, vs. 6 cores for the Ryzen, so for anything multi-threaded (heavier workloads), the Ryzen wins.

Intel's new Xe graphics have also closed the gap significantly over the Radeon Vega graphics in the Ryzen and can beat AMD some of the times; the Ryzen's graphics still have a slight lead though overall, though.

I'd personally go with the Ryzen, esp. if you ever plan to do some light gaming, but they're reasonably close.

(This is applicable only for 11th gen Tiger Lake; 10th gen Ice Lake or earlier are a lot worse. And the upcoming 12th gen Alder Lake is a lot better.)



LOL, that's wildly incorrect. They have comparable power characteristics.

Full specs:
https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/I...82KT00AMUS

Should be able to support 20GB (4 soldered, 16 in slot). The specs may say that the slot supports only 8, but it supports more in reality.

Thanks. Is the hinge issue across all Lenovo laptops? Recently bought a $600 Lenovo 16GB and am concerned about the hinge issue.
