HP ENVY x360 15 2-in-1 Laptop, AMD Ryzen 7 3700U comparison

quick question for the people that know more about computers. i bought this computer (https://www.costco.ca/.product.6571113. ... ed_product) when it was on sale last week. the reviews seemed good but is the price worth it compared to some of the cheaper options for boxing day? i paid like $870 after tax. i put a couple links below to computers that are cheaper. im just looking for some insight is all. thank you in advance.

If your playing any games (not including solitaire) the ryzen will be better
if not return the hp to costco and get the asus from bestbuy

thank you for the feedback. no gaming at all. i see the acer has a better battery and backlit keyboard compared to the asus. but the asus has a larger ssd. is there any other comparable benefit in the asus that i am not seeing?

sorry.. edit , personally asus is better quality over acer. but both laptops are similar besides what you pointed out.
battery is weak in the asus..it would be up to your use case.

thanks! last question. i looked into the screen issues with the asus (from the other asus with the same screen as this one). it seems like a lot of people. how much weight should a guy put on that?

link?
also it comes with 32 gig optane memory, which means it might have a second m2 slot which you could swap out for another hdd
