What do you need your Laptop for? If you're only working on your Laptop and not use it for PC gaming, a Ryzen U series should suffice. After all, a Ryzen 7 4700U crushes both the i7 10710U and the Ice Lake based 1065G7, and even keeps up with the 9750H in some tasks:
Keep in mind that the Laptop with the 4700U here is a bidget model which only costs $650, while it's competitors cost about twice as much. Tiger Lake really can't come soon enough for Intel, both on Desktop and Laptop.
Minutes after you posted this, one of the youtubers I follow post a whole video review if the same product:
I think I am gonna buy this one as a gift and wait few more weeks to get a bigger selection of more AMD power laptops. Exciting times though.
If I have one complaint, it's how all these companies use weird ass naming schemes only to change them few years later, and I just get absolutely frustrated searching what every letter before after the numbers mean. Just call what it is and spare us the needless confusion.
What happened to the Core i7 X700hq series? Is it still a thing? I remember buying a laptop as a gift that had the 7700hq and it was all the rage back then.
