Question On Buying A New Laptop

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Perhaps one of y’all might have some insight. My laptop has always kinda sucked. The Ryzen 5 was supposed to be fast, but, it’s never performed that well. Even playing old Duke Nukem 3D was a chore, worse than my older Samsung with a slower processor and just 4GB ram (HD died on it). Now, my HP might have a serious software issue, wouldn’t load, and the repair mode just keeps spinning. There are 4 laptops I’m interested in

I’m probably leaning towards the top two. The Lenovo is nice that it has 12GB ram (cannot add more, soldered on), supposedly a 2.3GHZ base clock speed, and 512SSD. Good user reviews, only 3.5 expert. Would have to order, would take around 9 days.

The Dell has 16GB ram, but, I’ve seen some things that say the actual base clock is 1.0GHZ. Also, slower ram. $629.99, might be able to get one in person.

Now, the HP has a very fast Ryzen 5, supposedly base clock of 3.0ghz. 8gb ram (fast ram, can add up to 32), just 256GB SSD. But, a slot for more. Might be able to take the HD from my old laptop and use it for just storage. The keyboard backlight is green. I think I can deal with it. $699, would have to order, would take about 9 days.

The ASUS has a Ryzen 7, though, clock speed is around 2.5GHZ. 8gb ram, can’t figure out how fast, nor whether it is expandable, which is a concern. Fingerprint reader. 512GB SSD. $648 on sale, can have it in a few days, and Amazon offers pretty good 4 year protect for just $127.

All have backlit keyboards. Not a big deal for a desktop keyboard, I really like for laptop, with those lower keys. I really need to pull the trigger sometime tomorrow. Any thoughts? While I’m good with computers, there is just so much darned info. When I was helping a coworker 2 months ago, I showed him that the Intel I5 has 22 different configurations, and you really need to watch that base speed. But, haven’t bought one for me in almost 5 years, and I cannot actually touch any of these first.
