Yep, this is one of the sacrifices, with the other being the speakers, which are not too bad, to be honest, but they are nothing spectacular either. And if you care for Thunderbolt connectivity, you’d better go for the Intel models. You also, won’t be getting an SD card reader, but the I/O is wide enough to incorporate a dongle. Also, the USB Type-C 3.2 (Gen. 2) port supports speeds of up to 10Gbps, which is more than enough for data transfers and a DisplayPort output.

AMD Vega 6: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 6 CUs (= 384 shaders) and a clock of up to 1,500 MHz.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
