Is there huge difference between i5 10300H vs i7 10750H?
Main usage: Adobe CC

Also, how about Ryzen 5 4600H and Ryzen 7 4800H? Will they perform well vs Intel counterparts? (In Adobe CC)

Thanks for reply!

Of course, we're comparing 4c8t and 6c12t. But it also depends on your usage?

For some Adobe programs, better use Intel CPU. Though Ryzen CPU isn't bad in CC

Hi guys! Need some help on getting a Windows laptop, been using Mac since like forever and now in need of a Windows laptop to do some works so I am truly clueless about it

1. Budget : RM2000-RM2500
2. Usage : Strictly office works, word/powerpoint/excel. Gonna deal with a lot of documents
3. Requirements (display size, battery life, weight etc) : Big display is a must, because will open a lot of documents simultaneously. 15 inch maybe? Will only use in the office as main computer. Good processor with good multitasking ability. No need fancy graphic cards. Preferably something reliable with good after sales support.

Thanks!

hi folks, advice needed :

1. Budget : max RM3K
2. Usage : light cad software, not much heavy rendering stuff, corel draw
3. Requirements (display size, battery life, weight etc) : prefer large display at 15', not much concern on battery and weight as usage is just within home

earlier on, ZM Fong had recomended Acer Nitro 5 AN515-43-R3B4 +RAM
this certainly looks much more cool compare Huawei D15 which i had in mind
quick question, when you say +RAM, do you foresee 8GB RAM might not be enough for the CAD tool and corel draw app?

just to be safe, this is the one you mentioned right?
https://www.acer.com/ac/en/MY/content/model/NH.Q6ZSM.001

how about this Lenovo (IdeaPad L340) about that price range but runs on i5-9300H

8GB is min nowadays, 16GB is recommended. If budget allows go for 16GB RAM

Yup that one, however I would highly suggest going for Legion 5 with newer Ryzen 4000 (even though over budget)

Avoid L340

Not sure whether you can extend your budget, but Legion 5 AMD with 80Wh battery is a good choice
