Got any good deal? Best bang for buck?

Or any experts got insight on amd ryzen 7 with AMD Radeon vega 10? Is it good for this budget?

Check out the ThinkPads Ryzen configured T and E series.

Some of these models are within your budget.

To avoid confusion, the naming goes like this Ryzen 7 3700U
with Vega 10 Graphics.
Ryzen is AMD CPU, Vega is AMD GPU/Graphic.

https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Ry....391026.0.html

If you wonder is Ryzen 7 on par with Intel, the answer is yes.
However the Vega graphic trash Intel HD graphic easily.

Some reviews say it can handle light gaming pretty well, but others say it sucks because its still integrated graphics. I guess its in the middle, better than intel graphics but much weaker than anything nvidia can offer.

Discrete graphic will always win over IGP not to mention.
IGP is dependent on shared memory while discrete graphic
have it's own memory.

AMD Ryzen mobile refresh will be coming in few months time,
7nm, 8 core Zen 2 + improve graphic.
