Ryzen 7 4xxx is the best followed by ryzen 7 3xxx & i7 10th gen where i7 10th gen is a bit better for games.

Durability of the processor?

All processors nowadays have similar durability provided they get same cooling.e.g.if a laptop has poor thermal ventilation then no matter what processor is in there it will have shorter life compared to a processor in a laptop with better thermal performance. Also in most cases a laptop’s mobo(motherboard) goes bad long before its processor’s life end.

That is the case with my current laptop biggrin biggrin Well thanx,

But I can see that we can get Ryzen 7 in Asus/Acer mostly, not in Lenovo or Dell right?

So it Asus/Acer Preferable over Lenovo/Dell?

Dell is most overpriced & lenovo doesn’t seem to have many new model launches this year(China factor maybe as it is chinese owned company after all). Ryzen 7 “U” version is not really needed for majority of people because “U” version processors can’t run at their full capacity(aka under heavy load) for more than 10-15 min because of their inbuilt power saving feature & someone who is looking for a ryzen 7 is not doing so for tasks like browsing & videos but for running processor under heavy load for long duration(gaming, video editing, video encoding, heavy processor consuming software etc). In heavy load usage scenario a ryzen 5 “H” version processor will beat a ryzen 7 “U” version processor after 10-15 min of running.

Will be going for 7 n4800H Acer/Asus if any like

And if needed to go for i7 10thGen Will go for Lenovo Legion 5i
https://www.amazon.in/Lenovo-Windows-Graphics-P...

Still confused, as will be having heavy workload for sure, not much for gaming but for development it will be 6/8 hours min

Asus TUF gaming laptops have inferior thermal performance compared to latest hp pavilion & omen series but this laptop has gtx 1650 so it should be manageable(avoid asus tuf laptops with cards higher than 1650 like 1660 etc) but still prefer other brands if possible to fit in budget. legion 5i is costly but should have better thermal performance. Also keep an eye on omen & acer predator(2020) models as they are also good.

Want to go for Ryzen 7 or i7 only but can’t see omen or pavilion with the config, also want dedicated GPU only, let me see if I can pull out some good product respecting this discussion, Thank you for the help. Any more information from anybody will be helpful.
