Now, this is impressive. Even the lowest spec version of this laptop is capable of outperforming devices equipped with the Core i7-1165G7. That’s what quad-core CPUs built on a 7nm architecture are capable of. And if you add a memory stick in the free slot inside, the graphics performance becomes pretty competitive as well. To be honest, the device is decent. Especially for its business purposes. It still has one of the best keyboards on the market – one that also features spill resistance. And a really smart choice would be going for the Ryzen 3 5300U since it has both power efficiency and performance.

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.
R3 5300U: A mobile quad-core APU with Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.6 to 3.8 GHz and a Vega graphics adapter with 6 CUs clocked at up to 1500 MHz. The Ryzen 3 CPU is very similar to the Ryzen 3 4300U.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.
