    Why you prefer amd gpu?

    Any deals on Thinkpad T series laptops?

      I had a look and it doesn't seem to be. As much as I would of like a T series, I couldn't justify the higher price difference.

      Main difference is they loose the 2.5" sata drive bay, longer battery life and I think the screen is brighter. Price difference was roughly 50% more.

      Rx 550x (mobile) is worst than igpu Vega 10 so probably closer to Vega 8 performance. Bad deal at this price.

        Vega 8 and Vega 10 are only available for on the AMD (desktop?) chip. There's only been 1 instance I'm aware of that an intel chip had the vega gpu on it and that was Intel's Hades Canyon NUC which wasn't cheap.

        The only other option is the intel HD620 which the RX550X is a much better option with this notebook. The intel HD620 option is like $180 cheaper if you downgrade to the i5-8265U processor. I don't know why you've got hate for this deal. Sounds like you're protecting your own interest but not saying why and that's giving you the benefit of the doubt that you're just a douchebag. Are you a reseller for another notebook company?

      If you're comparing against the intel HD620 which is your only other option for this notebook, here's a benchmark between the two: https://technical.city/en/video/UHD-Graphics-620-vs-Radeon-R...

      Still not a great performer, but then again, it's not a gaming notebook. There are better notebook options if that's your focus.
