Hi sifus,

Is that convincing to get an Lenovo Yoga 530 with AMD R7-2700U? Have no experience in comparing performance of AMD vs Intel core processor.. But the price in Lazada seems a huge different compared to i5 series : https://s.lazada.com.my/s.ASsz
*
this model is worth on the price?

product is not exist.. sold off?

I'd still prefer 13" - makes  a lot of differences carrying it daily with other stuff in the bag.  If bumping it to 4k, what is the best one with a decent GPU?

Microsoft surface pro is very good.... It makes a lot of diff ...huhu

Both will throttle - normal in 13 inch Ultrabook with dGPU

Exterior build wise UX333 is better, however QC wise both aren't that great

any recommendation?

Give me more info: Usage, preference on weight and battery life, mind high sRGB display and non-upgradeable RAM

Fast limit - power limit for the first few seconds (basically useless)
Slow limit - power limit for a long duration until STAPM power reaches slow limit value
STAPM limit - power limit forever - 15w is typical especially for convertible

From what I know, you can adjust performance setting in HP Command Center so maybe you can try to play around that. If you want best performance possible, can try tuning using Ryzenadj. Also, the power limits seem to be higher than the previous Envy x360 13

More on video editing (4k) + office tasks....

Preferred max weight in kg and min battery life in hours? Mind low sRGB display and non-upgradeable 8GB RAM?

max weight is heavy to carry.


What are the disadvantages of low sRGB?

Do you understand my question lol

What is your preferred max weight in kg? Preferred min battery life in hours? Mind non-upgradeable 8GB RAM?

Low sRGB = Colours less vibrant
*
max 1.7kg lo....
Battery life = 3 hours at least....

Prefer upgraable RAM and sRGB

Upgradeable RAM+high sRGB laptops with <1.7kg weight are quite rare, you might need to pay more...what's your budget?
*
If this is the case, then I change my purpose to only office tasks (Excel pivot calculations - quite heavy) and no editing.

As light as possible with good battery life.

What's your budget?

What kind of performance? In general there isn't significant performance difference except for CPU performance - some have better cooling+higher stock power limit
*
better cooling is good to consider.

Currently I am using Surface Pro and I like it very much. But may be the cooling is not that good and the battery bengkak and I got a new from warranty claim.

Hi ZM Fong, can you recommend me this?

Weight = lightest
RAM= upgrabable or non upgrabable (doesn't matter)
sRGB.
Battery life= doesn't matter (the longest the matter)

Priority: able to handle 4K video editing + lightest.
