AMD based laptop usually are not sold in retail channel.
For business/education, reseller/distributor also reluctant to quote AMD laptop.
That leave only online store as the only place to buy AMD laptop.

Hi all, just nice wanted to buy a laptop for my work usage. Is this the minimum setup I should consider for x395? I'm using for basic word processing, and occasionally image processing needs like illustrator and photoshop.

Processor : AMD Ryzen 5 pro
Operating System : Windows 10 HOME (Should I go for Pro version)
Memory : 8GB DDR (is 8GB sufficient)
Hard Drive : 256GB SSD
Display : 300nits
Power Cord : 65W AC Adapter (65W instead of 45W for faster charging?)

Thanks in advance.

I think that 16GB RAM good for future since can't add on any more
Win 10 pro not necessary you need it, but RAM you need it more than Windows upgrade.

Thanks for the suggestion. Seems like I missed the 9/9 deal. Currently it's 1.5k with all the listed specs. May wait and see if there's 10/10 sale available.

If AMD is improving in performance, why is there the reluctance?

Many factors:
- There is still perception that AMD CPU is slow and hot
- AMD OEM products don't sell well so most don't carry
- Most prefer Intel than AMD

Walk into any retail shop, if you ask their opinion about AMD laptop
they will quote the above.
For Ryzen to rise in OEM/Retail channel may take time, since
AMD reputation over a decade isn't that good.

I myself the only user who uses AMD since
Turion (Mobile)-> Phenom (Mobile) -> AMD APU Era A Series (Mobile)
Last time it's very hard to find AMD laptop and there is no online
store to buy such laptop.
