AMD used to be absolutely dogshit at the CPU market for desktops/laptops, until in ~2016 when Ryzen first dropped. They instantly forced CPU pricing way down, as things got competitive. Consumers really benefited from AMD cannibalizing Intel sales honestly, they really gained a lot in market share. I'd say back then, getting a Ryzen CPU was by far your best option price-wise, at least on first release.

Honestly, now they're about the same, if you see a deal posted on RFD with either an Intel or AMD cpu, either or is fine.

I didn't say more solid, just solid. Scores don't seem *too* far off from my 5 minutes of research.

It's a far worse computer in every single way, except for the amount of RAM.

Slower CPU, thicker chassis, heavier, worse materials, bigger bezel, slower Wi-Fi, smaller battery, dimmer display, no USB-C. The list goes on.

Did you get to choose? I hear it comes in various colors but I didn't see an option. Moot point now seeing as it's sold out, but I just like to torture myself by knowing I could have had a better color.
