50 thoughts on “What's Better? Buying a Budget Laptop OR a Discounted Laptop from Last Year – feat. Yoga C740

  1. My laptop boots up in 45 seconds, opens file Explorer in 20 seconds, Chrome in 50 seconds, start menu in 7 seconds, shuts down in 20 seconds. Got 6 fps in minecraft 720p lowest settings. Bought for 500 usd.


    Intel Pentium n4200 quad core
    Intel HD 505
    4GB DDR3 RAM
    500GB HDD
    14 inch 200 nit, 768p display
    Plastic, bendy chassis
    40wh battery (5-7 hours)

    Like if I should upgrade ๐Ÿ˜œ

  2. Hi Josh. Would you ever think of reviewing a ARM laptop with battery life, build quality like surface pro x and yogo c 630 ?

  3. What are your thoughts on the lenovo T15g and P15 ?
    Do you think the Lenovo T14 would be refreshed with the NVidia MX450 and 8 core CPU ?
    I am looking for a 14 inch laptop worth it's salt that would be my work horse for years to come like the MSI Creator 14

  4. Great channel and I truly believe the reviews you do and hope your channel grows bigger,I think if you added tablets and phones to your reviews YOU could be in the running with those other ones and how dedicated you are with the stats and numbers in testing you could be in the top running of true YouTube reviews of such products,it's so obvious who's a paid sponsor for certain products as well there phony reviews…keep it up Josh,take care,be safe and may your needs be met when needed and don't forget to lend a hand to those in need when you can…

  5. Lenovo laptops are just shitty. lets just agree on that. you cant expect them to perform reliably for even a short while.

  6. why are people always talking about editing videos… is this so common nowadays? it almost sounds like people are doing it for fun.
    "what are you going to do when you get back from work"
    "oh, i don't know, i think i will just lay back on the couch and edit some videos, you know, to relax a bit."

  7. It's incredible how the US and Europe have lots of options to choose, and some discounted older laptops to buy.
    I live in Brazil and the only company that brought the ryzen 4000U processors was HP, and they are very expensive. Here, their Ryzen 5 4500U is equivalent to an Acer Nitro 5 with intel i5 9300H and GTX1650. If it was a Ryzen 4700U with full hd ips display, I would not say anything.
    Most companies only brings 1366×768 TN screens in low and low to mid budget prices. Some companies have laptops with full hd resolution, but they come with dim TN screens and bad color accuracy (I have one).
    The budget gaming laptops are not better, most come with full hd ips displays, but very few have 8-bit colors or good percentage of sRGB.
    The worst part, is the prices that do not decrease. The stores (online or physical) don't lower the prices more than 5% or 10% discount in money. Even if it means to hold obsolete products.
    It's still nice to watch Josh, he is an amazing laptop reviewer.
    I'm looking foward to your analysis of the Acer Nitro 5 with Ryzen 5 4600H! Acer will bring it to Brazil, and I'm very interested in it.

  8. In Italy, it is really difficult to find laptops equipped with Ryzen 4000 (there are just few models). Anyone is having the same problem in its own country?

  9. Hi josh, iโ€™m looking to buy a new laptop and I canโ€™t decide between the Honor Magicbook Pro 16.1 or the HP Envy x360 4500u. Any feedback would be great!

  10. Hey Josh, can you please do a Lenovo Legion 5 Ryzen version. Maybe 4600H version. Love your content and your effort…๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป

  11. Very thorough as always Josh—thank you. Am I the only one who thinks that USB-C charging is important? I have a number of Chromebooks (which all use USB-C charging) and find it so much easier than keeping track of the different barrel chargers on most Windows laptops.

  12. Where I am from there is no such thing as "Discounted" laptop and the budget laptops have premium pricing so overall it's sucks

  13. Hey josh hope u are doing all fine a small request from my side can u put HP envy x360 ryzen 7 and HP elite dragonfly in a head to head battle pls pls pls

  14. Josh, will you be making a Black Friday laptop deals this year like you did last year? It was so beneficial and I loved it

  15. fyi, there are metal, 100%sRGB 300nits SKUs in EU on ideapad 5 (with matte)

    edit: Ideapad 5 15 has a 70Whr battery too

  16. Thanks Joshโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ

  17. "I'm Josh, and I buy and review a lot of laptops…" might as well just paste the audio to dub yourself, spare vocal chords

  18. With the new approach with AMD cpu's, do you think that they could hold up to the MacBook with a substantial price decrease?

  19. The answer is: just buy a current generation Ryzen laptop, cheaper, most screens are decent and twice the performance of intel equivalents.

  20. Thanks for the videos.
    May I suggest a video on choosing between 8GB or 16GB RAM for an ultrabook, regarding professional productivity, as most comparisons out there are only for gaming.

  21. That Lenovo ideapad 5 15(Ryzen 5) is nowhere to be found (europe). I wonder if i should buy the same laptop but with a AMD Ryzen 7-4700 8 cores and 16gb RAM currently 20% discount (799euros). Any advice ?

  22. It would be awesome if you'd one day review the Ideapad S540 13 with a 13.3" 16:10 2560×1600 scren which has been on sale for 1 year now. Now it has been available with ryzen 4th gen for over 6 months. Also, the Yoga Slim 7 Pro with a 14" 16:10 2880×1800 400 nits 90Hz display and an r9 4900H.Any chances that you will review these anytime soon?

  24. The problem in India is either the laptop is just not available or expensive than what is available abroad. Many Lenovo laptops are just not available hope the situation changes ๐Ÿ˜‘
