    It's not a bad price but if you don't need that much RAM or CPU you can get the 10th gen Core i5 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage for $799. Remember these have microSD card slots so you can use that to expand. A 128GB microSD card goes for under $20. Personally I don't think 8 more GB of RAM and going from i5 to i7 and 128 to 256 is worth $400 but to each their own. Reply

    You do want 16GB of RAM, because 16GB is enough for future proofing against Win10 bloat
    You do want the 256GB SSD for when you load it up with media. Whenever vacations are a thing again
    The i7 doesn't offer much of an improvement over the i5, so you can definitely skimp on that.

    But overall, I'd say just don't buy any x86 notebook or tablet, unless it has Ryzen 5 or 7 in it.

    I hadn't owned notebooks in years... So 3! years ago when the Ryzen 2700u dropped I jumped on a notebook with that chip and been happy with AMD's offerings.

    Recently got the Ryzen 4700u for that extra performance in Overwatch... Dual Channel DDR4 3200mhz definitely makes the difference over 2400mhz in games at 1080P.

    Funny, the 2700U has really disappointed me. Battery life is straight trash, even though I can't disagree with the performance. Reply

    Mobile ryzen 2000 and 3000 series were definitely hot garbage.
    zen2 mobile ryzen 4000 series is leagues ahead.

    Performance wise
    Intel i7-10750H fits right in between Ryzen 5 4500U and Ryzen 7 4700U
    And the i7 is a 45W part

    I agree with meacupla on 8gb vs 16gb of RAM. 8gb is barely enough to not bottleneck a system anymore. And for the i5 vs i7, the i7 has a pretty big upgrade in the GPU over the i5 (48CUs vs 64 CUs). Reply

    anything over 800$ for any Intel based CPU is way overpriced..I am talking about 11th gen and this is 10th gen.. should be on cleasrance. Reply

    But who else offers a high resolution (2736x1824, 267ppi), high color accuracy (100%sRGB), high contrast ratio (1:1500), very bright (400nits), 3:2 or 16:10 screen on their notebook or 2-in-1?

    Oh, right, Apple.

    Pretty sure there are laptops like this, for example the Thinkpad X1 Nano, the Asus ROG Flow X13, HP Spectre x360 13, etc. The Surface is no longer unique in this regard Reply

    Given that the Surface Pro machines are very difficult to repair (even to change the battery) due to excessive use of glue and are prone to overheating on heavy use the price is still too high.
    Anyone buying such a machine needs to consider the probability of it becoming an unusable brick or relegated to mains power only (because of battery failure) inside three years.

    Ultraportable laptops by their nature have cooling systems that are far less powerful than the ones found in standard laptops - this leads to overheating on sustained heavy use.
