AMD Ryzen NB Discussion| Lenovo Thinkpad E495/E595/T495/X395 Well-rounder performance CPU + GPU
 
Previous generation of AMD Ryzen based laptop like Think E485/E585 was rather popular.
I will update here the newer gen models which are:

Thinkpad E495 (AMD Ryzen) - No review yet
Thinkpad E595 (AMD Ryzen) -

Pros
+very good input devices
+contrast-rich, bright IPS display
+good CPU performance
+fairly quiet
+good SSD
+GPU a lot faster than Intel UHD graphics
+very constant performance without drops
Cons
-only microSD reader
-GPU performance throttled (no dual-channel RAM)
-1x USB 2.0
-weak color-space coverage

Lenovo ThinkPad E595 Laptop Review

Thinkpad T495 (AMD Ryzen Pro) - No review yet
Thinkpad X395 (AMD Ryzen Pro) - No review yet

AMD Ryzen chips are unlike older generation, now most Ryzen APU chips offer well rounder performance for both CPU + GPU.
On par with Intel mobile chips while the integrated Radeon Vega graphics trash Intel UHD easily.

But for gaming discrete graphics will still outperform integrated Radeon graphics since it lack dedicated VRAM.
In SG the above are decent models whether for work, light gaming and etc.

The E series are budget while T and X are premium line.
Take note AMD Ryzen Pro features and cooling are different from
AMD Ryzen consumer.

Which to pick depend on your budget and usage.
Generally E series are decent enough.
Take note for what I know AMD based Thinkpad are sold online, have yet to see any retail shop selling it.

In SG there are other AMD Ryzen based laptop such as:
ASUS X512DA (*Uses HDD not SSD)
ASUS FX550DT Gaming laptop uses AMD H chips

No other models I have seen so far so AMD Ryzen laptop are rather rare.

Good price. I was playing around with it, and by adding a 1080P IPS monitor +25, and upgrade to 16GB ram +110. All for 925. :)

Upgrade to full hd is $25.

Upgrade to 12gb team is $50
To 16gb is $110

There's the 1 cents upgrade also.

Can't figure out whether can upgrade to Ryzen 7 to find out the cost.

At the moment don't see option for Ryzen 7.

seems like the basic specs like really not bad though. just that not sure how is the temp of the system. although 1.75kg seems like quite okay weight (not too heavy and light though)

Why so? Instead of doing so, perhaps can try to find a review if you concern is cooling.
