I am eyeing the market to purchase an AMD based laptop. However, there doesn't seem to be many options in Australia? Initial research I have done, HP and ASUS Zenbook seem to be the only ones that offer Ryzen 5-7 laptops. (Please correct me here if im wrong).
Current laptop: XPS 13 (2015) - i5 8GB RAM. 256SSD.
I've had no issues with the laptop since I've purchased it which I am happy to continue using but I would like to upgrade as I've started noticing some performance issues ( lagging with multitasking).
Ideally, I would like something that:
-Has longevity (~5 years)
-Fast for multitasking and do statistical programming and support dual-screen/widescreen monitor- 16GB?
-Small and easy to carry around (13-14 inches, maybe 15?)
-Dockable to my workstation
-Has headphone jack.
What I don't want:
What are my options at the moment? Is it worth waiting another 8 months or so for sales (eg.Black Friday / Amazon Prime day)?
Thanks in advance.
