I’m just about to buy a new laptop for coding and work, and I have the following two options:
I can summarize the main differences as below:
CPU Intel i7-11800H Ryzen 7-5800H (24M-L3 Intel vs 16M for AMD) GPU RTX 3050 (4G) RTX 3060 (6G) Memory 16GB (2x8) MAX 16GB (2x8) Expandable to 32 Display 16" (2560x1600) 15.6" (1920x1080) Ports Thunderbolt 4 Not supported Brick 230W (lighter) 300W (Heavy) Design Gamery Look More professional Weight 5.07 lbs 5.30 lbs Battery 7.2 Hrs 9.2 Hrs (80Wh battery for both) Price $1815 $1705 (international shipping for the Pro)
I’m very confused which one to buy after I sold my laptop (a previous version of the same model). Any advice or recommendations? Or should I pass on both of them and consider something else given the current shortages and availability issues?
