A snail's pace. Stoney Ridge is bottom of the barrel when it comes to overall performance. The AMD option may save a few bucks here and there, but the sluggish responsiveness is a very high price to pay.

Choppy waters. The HP 15-bw07ax brings AMD's newest high-end APU, the A12-9720P, to the market. However, the APU may be a bit too new - the system is remarkably unstable.

Nothing new under the sun. HP's Pavilion 15z is a rather basic 15.6-inch notebook powered by an AMD APU and integrated Radeon graphics. Given its budget status, it doesn't come as a surprise that the systems falls short in many categories.

Slow and Steady. The HP 15-BW077AX is an entry-level laptop from HP with AMD's newest A9 APU. Despite its young age, the CPU feels years behind the competition and the notebook as a whole offers very little for prospective consumers.

AMD may be expanding into the Chromebook market

An AMD board known as "Kahlee" has shown up in ChromeOS's Coreboot code. The device will be based on 2016's Stoney Ridge rather than AMD's new Ryzen architecture. The existence of an AMD powered Chromebook together with the release of Ryzen 7 and 5-series chips suggests that AMD is making an all-out effort to reestablish itself in the market.

Disappointing screen. Lenovo's 14-inch convertible carries a price tag of around 500 Euros (~$533). The buyer gets a Stoney Ridge APU with a solid-state drive, and 4 GB of working memory. Lenovo ruins the overall good impression by installing a viewing angle dependent TN panel.

Bristol Ridge business.HP's 12.5-inch EliteBook is powered by an AMD APU. Thus, HP is one of the few manufacturers that still use AMD's APUs in the business sector. The APU is supported by an IPS panel, NVMe SSD, and LTE modem. Unfortunately, the laptop fan emits a subtle whistling sound.

AMD office. HP's 17.3-inch device is made for users who are looking for a simple 17.3-inch notebook for home use. Accordingly, the computer comes with plenty of storage space (1 TB) and a more than sufficient amount of RAM (8 GB; dual-channel mode). However, these are all of the laptop's highlights. The list of shortcomings is more extensive.

Low-cost office. HP delivers a home-office laptop with the 15-ba077ng. Its quiet system noise, low temperature development, and fast solid-state drive speak for the laptop. However, the laptop has some drawbacks. This was to be expected considering the price of approximately 450 Euros (~$482).

Limited competitiveness. Despite some good approaches, an SSD and sufficient CPU performance, we cannot quite get accustomed to Acer's multimedia newcomer with an AMD basis. The engine does not work as efficiently and reliably as the Intel competition, and especially the subpar TN-panel display without any flexibility concerning viewing angles will most likely only suffice for undemanding users.

Good Package. The Hewlett Packard Pavilion 15-aw004ng is an interesting notebook. The 15.6 inch allrounder packs a matte FHD screen, a SSD and an AMD dual graphics setup. The price for all these goodies: 550 Euros. A price like that for a packet like this can convince most buyers to look the other way when faced with certain flaws, such as, below-average battery life and a one year warranty.
