Is this the low-mid tier type of spec for a laptop

Need advice here

i5-8250 / amd ryzen 5
ssd 128gb + 1tb hdd / ssd 256gb only
8gb ddr4 ram
build in graphic card
win 10 home edition

For this type of spec, am i looking at ~$1k? Went to HN northpoint yesterday, quoted by a sales man

PS: Saw the other thread saying AMD ryzen on a laptop will have major heat issue? Using laptop at office for 6-8 hrs daily. Is there any point to get a faster cpu and ram if my primary usage is mostly on office and words.

For your usage, even my 6-year old laptop will perform the same as any other new laptops on the market

Heat issue has nothing to do with the processor, but rather the cooling implemented by the notebook manufacturer.

Anyway, Lenovo E485 may be a good deal for your budget. I think the cooling is adequate for these low power processors.

Graphics wise, the built in graphics of the Ryzen apu would be better than intel’s hd variant.

Go for Ryzen, it’s worth it!
